WSD 2019 Support Staff Employees of the Year
The Wentzville School District is proud to recognize all of the hard working support staff employees who go above and beyond for WSD students and the District. “It is the support staff employees who drive our buses, prepare our meals, clean our schools, and do scores of other jobs that help support the educational efforts of the District,” said Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources Jennifer Hecktor. “Our support staff employees often labor behind the scenes, but their dedication and hard work do not go unnoticed. We appreciate all they do to support students and staff and their contributions every day are part of what makes the WSD special.” Every year, each building in the District selects their own “Support Staff Employee of the Year,” and the building winners are eligible for the District Support Staff Employee of the Year Award, announced during the annual District Awards Banquet in May.

Four WSD Students Make St. Charles Community College Dean's List
Congratulations to Reece Hager, Skyler Hebold, and Alexander Meyer from Holt, as well as Olivia Guffey from Liberty, for being named to the St. Charles Community College Fall 2018 Dean’s List. The students are enrolled in the District’s new Early College Program, which gives our juniors and seniors the opportunity to work toward, or fully complete, an Associate’s Degree through St. Charles Community College while still in high school. The program had 14 students enrolled to start this year and there are 50 students signed up for next year. Through the Early College Program, which is hosted at Holt High School and taught by WSD teachers, a high school junior could potentially earn both their high school diploma and an Associate’s Degree at the same time if they take advantage of the program for two years and take summer classes at SCC.
 
St. Charles Countywide STEM Olympics
Three teams of students from the Wentzville School District took top honors at the second annual St. Charles County STEM Olympics held at Fort Zumwalt Middle School on April 3. The event featured top district STEM winners from the WSD, Fort Zumwalt, Francis Howell, Orchard Farm and the City of St. Charles. The WSD teams that won Gold were: the fourth grade team of Garrett Lant and Derrick Morgart (Discovery Ridge Elementary), the sixth grade team of David Keith “Trey” Nalley and Carson Ramos (Wabash Elementary), and the seventh grade team of Ryann Bunner, Christian Mattern, and Adrian Rodriguez (Wentzville Middle).

The STEM Olympics began in the WSD five years ago with elementary and middle school students competing in small group design challenges at the building level that culminated in a districtwide event. Last year, the WSD invited their neighboring districts to participate in similar preliminary rounds at their schools and districts in preparation for the first-ever countywide STEM Olympics. In their respective competitions, students who won at their building level were asked to engineer a product with specific materials in a limited amount of time at the district level and qualified for the countywide event.

For a complete list of winners in the St. Charles County STEM Olympics, visit the WSD website.
 
2019 Boundary Committee Selected
 

The 2019 Boundary Committee has been selected and includes parents, community members, staff representation and a member of the Board of Education. Eighty two stakeholders applied to be on the committee, which will begin meeting in May to create new attendance areas for District schools. The District has hired MGT Consulting Group to conduct a new demographic study and facilitate the redistricting process.

WSD voters approved Proposition E last year, a $125 million bond issue that did not result in a tax increase, which included building a new high school and a new elementary school. The Boundary Committee will be charged with examining the new demographic study and enrollment data, MGT’s capacity and utilization analysis, as well as the WSD’s redistricting criteria, to help develop those new attendance areas, which will include elementary, middle and high school boundaries.


The Boundary Committee will have its first meeting on Thursday, May 2, at Timberland High School in the library beginning at 4pm. The Boundary Committee meetings will be open to the public to observe the process and all stakeholders are welcome to attend. However, there will not be an opportunity for public comment at those work sessions. Parents, staff, students and community members will have an opportunity to make comments, ask questions and make suggestions to the committee on draft scenarios during three scheduled Community Forums in September, and there will be online opportunities to weigh in before the boundaries are finalized as well. The tentative Boundary Timeline has a new boundary recommendation going before the Board of Education at the December 19, 2019 meeting. #WSDgrows

Boone Trail Second Grader Appears on KPLR as Weather Kid of the Week
Austin Coleman, a second-grade student at Boone Trail Elementary, was selected to appear with John Fuller on KPLR 11 just before spring break as a “Weather Kid of the Week.” Austin’s mom, Heather, said she heard about the contest through her son’s teacher, Ms. Simon, and knew she had to enter him for a chance to talk weather on TV. Heather says her son loves to follow the weather and try to predict the patterns of storms. “He checks the weather several times a day, either by asking Alexa or using the weather app,” she said. “He is very interested in tsunamis and tornados and he is concerned when it floods for the safety of those it could affect.” Heather shares that Austin has a big heart and often looks at the pictures of the aftermath of storms and talks about how maybe he could’ve helped. You can view Austin’s television debut on KPLR's website.
