Employees from Stifel, in partnership with Operation Warm, provided a new winter coat to every student at Drummond Elementary on Nov. 14.
“When I first saw these coats, I was really happy because some people wouldn't have any coats and this day would bring them joy because they would get a coat today,” third grader Evan Ramon said.
Over 650 coats were distributed to students in kindergarten through fifth grade. Stifel volunteers personally met with the students during the distribution, ensuring proper fitting of the coats. Additionally, they took the initiative to write each student's name on a tag inside the coat with a permanent marker. To enhance the winter preparedness of the students, Stifel also provided a goodie bag containing winter gloves.
“It’s such a huge deal because some of our kids come to school without a coat every day and you know, they're cold, they want to go outside and play and now all of our students have a coat,” assistant principal Carley Tankersley said. “There's no stigma with this. Every single kid got a coat.”
Pattonville schools spent the weeks surrounding Veterans Day learning about and thanking local veterans for their service to the country. Several schools held special events.
On Nov. 14, the Pattonville Board of Education reviewed the resignation of board members Dr. Amanda Lienau and Brandon Wilkes. Wilkes, treasurer of the board of education, resigned from the school board effective Oct. 18 due to moving outside of the district. Lisa Kickbusch was selected to replace Wilkes as treasurer. Lienau resigned from the board effective Oct. 25.
Filing for positions on the Pattonville School District Board of Education begins at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 5, and ends at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 26. Persons interested in running for a position on the school board may file at the Pattonville Learning Center, 11097 St. Charles Rock Road, St. Ann, Missouri. Candidates will be placed on the ballot in order of filing. There are three positions available on the April 2, 2024, election ballot, two with a three-year term and one with a two-year term. Board vice president Jeanne Schottmueller’s term is expiring. Both Dr. Amanda Lienau and Brandon Wilkes resigned from the board in October. Because Wilkes’ term was set to expire in April, his seat will be filled with the standard three-year term. Lienau, who was elected in April, had two years left in her term, creating the two-year opening. Candidates may only file for the three- or the two-year term.
