Pattonville voters gave their support to Pattonville's Proposition S on the April 5 election ballot. Prop S is a $111 million no-tax-rate-increase bond issue, which will fund projects at every school in Pattonville, including adding classrooms to address growth in student enrollment; providing safety and maintenance improvements; and updating school facilities to meet teaching and learning needs. Approval of the bond issue will not increase the district's tax rate.
Surprise visits took place around Pattonville School District on March 30 as finalists were announced for the 2021-2022 Teacher and Support Staff of the Year awards. Winners of the Teacher and Support Staff Rookie of the Year awards were also revealed.
Millions of people watched the Winter Olympics on television, and Rose Acres and Willow Brook elementary school students were able to play Winter Olympics-themed games during PE classes because of their gold medal-worthy teachers.
Willow Brook PE teachers Ashley Downs and Vince Licameli and Rose Acres PE teachers Mike McKeon and Joe Rehagen along with student teacher Dominic Licameli managed to transform balls into rocks and pool noodles into ski poles.
Willow Brook Elementary School kicked off its Read-a-Thon on Monday and has already raised $6,555 with students recording 7,121 minutes read to date. Students pledge to read at least 20 minutes a day for 10 days and raise money for completing the challenge. The event is organized by the school’s PTO and is its major fundraiser for the year.
For added fun, staff organized a spirit week and a daily video of a Willow Brook staff member reading a book matching the theme of the day is shared every morning. Tuesday’s theme was Pajama Day and PE teacher Vince Licameli read Llama Llama Red Pajama.
After raising more than $8,000 for the American Heart Association, students and staff at Willow Brook Elementary played a basketball game to celebrate the success of the fundraiser.

“We officially raised $8,329.51 and had 110 students register.”
