We would like to welcome our LINKS German Exchange students from Boizenburg, Germany! There are 15 students from Germany who will be staying with our families at St. Louis High School. In the spring, our students will then travel to Germany and get to experience the German culture and visit historic sites. These students will have experiences and form friendships that will last a lifetime.
German students will be presenting to our elementary, middle and high school classes throughout the week. This is a great experience for all of our students and we are looking forward to a fantastic time together!

I’d like to welcome you to the 2017-18 school year. We are going to make this the best year ever! St. Louis Public Schools is a great place to be whether you are just joining us or returning for yet another year. The days of summer will soon be over and meeting new teachers is just around the corner. Coming back to school creates many emotions for students and parents. Those emotions are normal. Being excited, as well as a little nervous, is to be expected. Do not worry. We will be with you every step of the way. Sydney J. Harris once said, “The purpose of education is to turn mirrors into windows.” It is our job, at SLPS, to teach students to see opportunities in front of them, teach them to become leaders, show them how to “walk with” each other in times of need and struggle, and join them in celebrating times of joy and happiness. We will show our students what an education will provide them. We care for our students and believe in them. We will do as Sydney Harris said. We will turn mirrors into windows so our kids can be the best they can be. To accomplish these things, we will following the path our district started in 2014. We are on a good path, but need to continue to strive at getting better all of the time. As our students change, we too, must change. We will continue to do the following:
- Create solid intervention programs to address literacy skills K-12
- Close the achievement gap
- Improve instruction in every classroom to focus on student learning
The SLPS motto is “Together we Can, Together we Do!” We have had that motto for the past three years and will continue to live by that. “Together we Can, Together we Do!” means we really need to work together. Working together will bring support and pride to everyone. Working together will allow for us to always put kids first. We take pride in our programming, our staff, our students, and our community. We are the St. Louis Sharks! Join me for coffee or conversation anytime. I would love to sit down and talk with you. You can also visit our website to see what’s happening in and around the district!
