Attendance Matters Celebration Wednesday, September 28

Attendance is critical to positive student achievement, and all families should ensure students are at school and on time every school day. Absences can add up. Missing just two days every month puts students at risk of falling behind.

Throughout the year, the Normandy Schools Collaborative will schedule special school attendance events to celebrate, encourage, and remind students and families about the importance of attending school.

The first event is planned for Wednesday, September 28. Parents and students will be eligible for prizes, including Chromebooks, gift cards, and movie passes. Students must be in attendance the whole school day to be eligible to participate in the prize drawings.

The Normandy High School Homecoming parade and football game will be held on Saturday, October 15. The Vikings will take on Affton High School.

If groups would like to participate in the parade, please contact Terrence Hamilton or see the application attached below.

Upcoming Listening Session Scheduled

In an effort to hear directly from families, Interim Superintendent Dr. Crystal Reiter is holding listening sessions. These will be very informal, and a light meal will be provided.

A 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.

All attendees must register at Eventbrite and can RSVP by clicking here.
