Equity in Education - Minutes and BBQ

Good evening,

Please take a moment to review the April minutes from the district's Equity in Education Team.  As a learning community that values learning, individuality, and community, this group actively learns and works to support equity in learning for all children and adults.  

Also, if you're available on May 2 to attend the End of School BBQ, we'd encourage you to do so.  It's a wonderful event for all ages!

Each child, Each day...John

Collaborative Learning Experience with SLPS

Good morning,

Last week, WGSD 3rd grade students in Project Plus participated in a "Creative Convention Day" at Hudson Elementary along with 3rd grade students from Kennard Classical Junior Academy (St. Louis Public Schools).  As part of the experience, Ed Grooms, our district fine arts coordinator, invited Mick Fumo to share how he uses creativity in his daily life as a chef at Cielo in the Four Seasons Hotel.  Students learned about new vegetables like carnival cauliflower and were encouraged to play with their food (see picture below)!
