Patrick Henry Post

April 2nd, 2021

Welcome back from Spring Break!

Our first week back from Spring Break started fourth quarter off with a bang! It was amazing to see all of our students back in class - both in-person and virtually! Even though the break was a relaxing time for some well-deserved rest for both our students and our staff, we were all excited to get back into the building and see our Patrick Henry students shining. We have highlights included below our two school announcements:

  1. We are now accepting new students or returning students into our Early Childhood Program. If you have a 3- or 4-year old ready to start preschool next school year, please call the school at 314.231.7284 to get the enrollment process started!
  2. We are now accepting students into our Summer Learning Program. If you are interested in signing your child up for summer school, please CLICK HERE.

For now, enjoy our highlights from our first week of April, and have a wonderful weekend!

PreK back on the playgrounds!

April Showers for May Flowers

Patrick Henry Garden Committee

Even though the spring rains can be difficult, we are thankful for the rain this week as we know it will benefit our amazing school garden! Our garden committee received our first indoor plants that we will care for until it is time to plant them outside in our garden beds. Ms. Wildermuth is pictured below getting them into just the right amount of sunlight in Dr. Rogers' office for safekeeping until they can be added to the garden beds. We also have a new mulch project that needs some work! If you are interested in joining the Garden Committee to help plant and care for our beautiful garden space, please contact Dr. Rogers at!

5th Grade Art

Our talented fifth grade students worked hard this week with Ms. Bryant to create inspiring and lovely landscapes. Their color choices and designs served as a moment of self-expression that should be celebrated for its authenticity and beauty. Well done, Patrick Henry artists!

Thank you!

Our staff had a professional development day that was sponsored by our partnership with the PTO at McKinley. Staff were treated to a fantastic Bread Co. breakfast and they were able to start their day of learning off the right way. Thank you to our PTO friends throughout SLPS for supporting our teachers!

Ian Farmer

Mr. Farmer received a shoutout this week from his second grade colleagues that stated, "He always goes above and beyond for his students! Even taking advantage of time after the fire drill so not a moment of instruction was lost. Second grade is very thankful for his hard work!" Awesome job, Mr. Farmer!
