Tomorrow will be a virtual learning day for students. Students will take part in independent learning activities at home with online teacher support. Teacher’s hours of availability to support student learning will be shared on their student learning platform or via email. Finals scheduled for tomorrow at Pattonville High School are postponed and will be made up after winter break. High school students will receive an update from school administrators tomorrow.
Other school and district staff will work from home unless other arrangements are made with their supervisor. Day custodians and maintenance staff should report to work at their regular time or as instructed by their supervisor. Afternoon and evening custodial staff have the option of reporting to work in the morning. Please work with your supervisor regarding adjustments to your regularly scheduled hours.
As an awareness for family schedules, tomorrow’s virtual learning day will not need to be made up in the future. Winter break begins on Friday, Dec. 23 and students return on Wednesday, Jan. 4.

Science came to life in the fourth grade classrooms at Parkwood Elementary School. The students worked to research plants and animals from various biomes and transformed their classrooms to represent what they learned about the ocean, rainforest, savannah and tundra.
On Dec. 21, other grade level classes toured the biomes and listened to presentations from the fourth graders.
The fourth grade teachers are Kristen McGreer, Audrey Masek, Lindsey Schaefer and Greg Stoltz.
Janel MacLean started customizing shoes for Parkwood Elementary School students last year as a way to help them freshen up their old shoes. After seeing an Instagram Reel of a teacher in Toronto that purchased Air Force 1s for her entire class of students to customize, MacLean was inspired to do something.
"That was the spark that I needed," MacLean said. "If she could do it for 22 students, I could do it for every one of my fifth graders."
On Dec. 13, students attended an assembly where they were surprised with their very own pair of the popular Nike shoes.
