Upcoming Listening Sessions Scheduled
In an effort to hear directly from families, Interim Superintendent Dr. Crystal Reiter will hold two listening sessions. These will be very informal, and a light meal will be provided.
The first meeting is scheduled to take place at 8:00 am on Thursday, September 15. The second meeting is scheduled for 5:30 pm on Thursday, September 22. Both meetings will take place in room 207 at the district’s central office at 3855 Lucas and Hunt Road. We will work to keep these meetings small in an effort to have meaningful conversations and schedule more of these meetings throughout the school year.
Please RSVP to Ms. Lori Thompson if you would like to attend.
NSC to Celebrate Opening of Believe Project Literacy Lab on September 29
The Normandy Schools Collaborative will become the newest home to a Believe Project literacy lab, an initiative of the St. Louis Black Authors of Children's Literature (STLBACL) organization dedicated to improving reading proficiency in elementary students. A ribbon cutting will take place on September 29 at Barack Obama School, which will house the literacy lab. The project is particularly meaningful for Normandy as Craig Williams, President of Jordan Brand at Nike, is a Normandy graduate. Williams and other featured speakers will provide remarks at the opening.
The ribbon-cutting ceremony will begin at 9:30 am on September 29 and is free and open to the public.
