A note from your Kennerly Counselors:

For a few days this week we will welcome presenters from the Child Abuse Prevention Program or CAPP. CAPP uses trained specialists to partner with more than 150 schools across St. Louis to teach children, teachers and parents about body safety, the warning signs of child abuse and safe internet skills, using developmentally-appropriate and empowering activities. The presentations will last approximately 40 minutes and are designed for each developmental stage of our students in elementary school. Lindbergh Schools is committed to keeping all kids safe and this informative and child-friendly program is a way that we can promote that commitment.

Additional information can be found here, including teaching videos which you can preview:

5th Grade Celebration!

Hello 5th Grade Families!

With the end of the year fast approaching, the 5th Grade party planning committee is working hard to make sure our kids have an awesome send off into middle school. We have booked the River Chase YMCA for the festivities. The expenses for the facility are going to take a pretty large chunk out of the party budget and we were hoping to have some fun activities at the facility for the kids. We tossed around fundraising but first thought we would give you all the opportunity to donate to the cause. Attached is the PTP payment information that would allow you to directly donate to the party fund. No donation is too small!

Thanks in advance for your help and hopefully we can pull off a party they will never forget!
