Patrick Henry Post
April 23rd, 2021
Happy Administrative Professionals' Day to Mrs. O'Shea!
Happy Earth Day!
Welcome, St. Louis Police Department!
MAP Test Updates
Congrats, Ms. Ivory's 3rd and 4th Graders!
For one of our lucky virtual students, the day she had to come into the building for testing was her actual birthday! What a way to ring in her 9th birthday!
Ms. Ivory's students took their lunch and a well-deserved break outside in the sunshine in between testing sessions. The garden was the perfect place to relax their brains!
We have missed our virtual students dearly during this time, but they have missed each other even more! Watching them reconnect in person was such a special treat.
Welcome, Newly Elected Officials!
Congrats, Mayor Tishaura Jones!
Tishaura Jones is our new St. Louis Mayor! This was an historic election of the first African American female mayor of St. Louis. Mayor Jones has been trailblazing long before 2021, however. During her time in the Missouri legislature, she was the first African American woman in Missouri to hold the position of Assistant Minority Floor Leader, and in 2012, she became the first African American woman to serve as Treasurer of St. Louis. We are excited to welcome her to her new role, and we wish her good luck in her transition to Mayor!
Welcome to the neighborhood: Alderman James Page!
Patrick Henry sits in the middle of Ward 5, and we recently elected a new Alderman, Mr. James Page! Alderman Page has worked in the Post Office, the Downtown Neighborhood Association, and President Obama's campaign. We are so excited to have him represent us in all local matters. Welcome to your new role, Alderman Page!
Congrats, SLPS Veteran: Treasurer Adam Layne
Adam Layne was appointed on April 15th and will take over for Mayor Jones as the City of St. Louis Treasurer. Treasurer Lane is familiar with the office since he has been working as the Deputy Chief of Staff for the City of St. Louis Treasurer's Office. Treasurer Layne is also familiar with St. Louis Public Schools as he served on the Board of Education in 2019, and served as a high school math teacher in St. Louis Public Schools. Congratulations on your new appointment, Treasurer Layne!
