Fourteen students from Pattonville Heights Middle School had poems selected for publication in “Empowered - We’ve Got the Power.” The national poetry contest for middle and high school students was coordinated by Young Writers USA.
Today, seventh grade English language arts teacher Tara Jones transformed her classroom to Jones’ Cafe to celebrate all of the students that submitted and were accepted for publication. Each student received a certificate and enjoyed donuts as volunteers read their poem aloud to the group.
The Area-Wide Middle School Book Battle was held on May 4 at Pattonville Heights Middle School with 20 in-person teams and six that joined virtually. Holman Middle School, Pattonville Heights Middle School and Remington Traditional School each had a team competing at the event.
The team from Nipher Middle School won the Book Battle edging Ladue Middle School with a tie-breaker question.
The book battle gives middle school students in the St. Louis, Missouri, area the opportunity to meet and discuss current books of interest. The Area-Wide Book Battle Committee creates a list of 20 books that includes a variety of genres and reading levels.
Pattonville voters gave their support to Pattonville's Proposition S on the April 5 election ballot. Prop S is a $111 million no-tax-rate-increase bond issue, which will fund projects at every school in Pattonville, including adding classrooms to address growth in student enrollment; providing safety and maintenance improvements; and updating school facilities to meet teaching and learning needs. Approval of the bond issue will not increase the district's tax rate.
The district's most prestigious honor, the Pride of Pattonville award recognizes up to 10 honorees from the Pattonville community. Honorees can be district staff, volunteers or others for outstanding service to the district.
