Pattonville sophomore Elise Banks was chosen to participate in the 86th annual Sophomore Pilgrimage sponsored by the General Federation of Women's Clubs of Missouri (GFWC-MO). A sophomore from each high school in the state is selected by the faculty to attend the event.
She was told by high school principal Dr. Joe Dobrinic about three weeks ago she was the Pattonville High School representative.
“I didn’t know why I was being called down to his office because I knew I didn’t do anything to get in trouble.”
It was actually a meeting to let her know she has done everything right. Selection is based on the student's demonstrated citizenship, scholarship and qualities of courage, service and honor. The student selected must also be scholastically in the top quarter of the sophomore class.
Four Pattonville High School students qualified to compete at the international HOSA (Health Occupation Students of America) competition this summer after earning awards at the state level. Sixteen Pattonville students competed in the virtual HOSA (Health Occupation Students of America) State Leadership Conference over spring break.
Two groups finished in the top 5 of their events: Seniors Jadyn Powell, Griffin Wick, Teidrick Banks and Jas Rai placed fifth in HOSA Bowl; and juniors Loudin Cato, Esther Gbloesse, Chloe Kerwin and Lauren Marsala earned first place and are international qualifiers in Creative Problem Solving. They will compete virtually at the International Leadership Conference at the end of June.
The Pattonville High School boys basketball team finished the 2020-2021 campaign as the undefeated Suburban Conference (Red Division) and Class 6 District 5 champions. Several players and head coach Kelly Thames earned individual recognitions for the season.
Just a reminder that tomorrow March 17, will be an asynchronous learning day for all students (Track A, B and C), due to the vaccination roll out to Pattonville staff members. Teachers will post instructions for student learning on their individual canvas pages. In addition, we are making Thursday, March 18 a “B” track day. In-person students on “B” track (Last Names L-Z) will report to school on Thursday. If there are individual concerns with your “B” track child reporting on Thursday, please let your child’s assigned principal know.
Although this is a last second change, we wanted to give our “B” track students the opportunity to learn in-person at least once this week due to the fact that we do not have school this Friday March 19.
“A” Track students will not report to PHS on Thursday. This will be an asynchronous learning day for them.
Again, thanks for the flexibility with this late change. If you have any questions or concerns do not hesitate to contact me.
Beginning March 29, all in-person students will begin attending PHS 5 days a week. Villemade (Virtual) students will continue to attend virtually.
