Dr. Robert is sending out a new supervision schedule. Please follow the schedule and provide the support and supervision that our students need.

Please let me know if you want to include anything in our Weekly Calendar/Monday Message.
We will take a staff picture retake – we’ll work that out in the near future when everyone is available. Thanks
FYI from the WGPD - There has been a noticeable increase in thefts from vehicles in many of our neighborhoods. We recognize it is no consolation but increased thefts are not unique to Webster Groves. Every inner-ring suburb in St. Louis County is experiencing a substantial increase in thefts from vehicles. The large majority of these involve thefts from unlocked and unattended vehicles. Although there are no ironclad methods to guarantee prevention, there are several things residents can, and should do to help combat thefts from vehicles and auto thefts…
When unattended, remove all valuables (especially weapons) from a vehicle and ensure that it is locked. Do not leave a key inside the vehicle.
Immediately report suspicious persons or activity to the police (911).
Always be aware of your surroundings and never confront someone who is suspicious or actively involved in a theft – again, immediately contact the police (911).
If you have worked with Dr. Smith on your Personal Goals for this year, please send me an email. If you are working on your goals, let me know how and if I can help. I’d like to have all of our individual personal goals in place prior to September 1st if possible.
Thank you Dr. Vogt for coordinating the staff video. It really is great. We will be posting the video on our website this weekend.
Thank you for all you’ve done and will do to prepare for the student’s return. I know that your hard work will make a difference to the students and all of us at Hixson.
A thought… One book, one pen, one child, and one teacher can change the world.
