Please mark your calendars for August 12 (11 – 1 pm) and our Back 2 School BBQ at Ivory Crockett Park!
Each year hundreds of district residents, not just students or families of students, converge at this great park to enjoy some delicious food, play games, and build or deepen relationships. The purpose of the event is to build community and celebrate the start of another school year! This event is a favorite of the Simpson family and we hope to see you there!
Each child, Each day…John
- Save the date Sept. 9 for the grand opening of the newly renovated Webster Groves High School auditorium, featuring a multimedia program “Visions of America” with alumnus Joseph Sohm and narrated by Clint Eastwood. Tickets for this special program are $10 in advance from the High School office or $15 at the door. All proceeds benefit the High School auditorium renovation.
Sohm, class of 1966, is an award-winning photographer who’s spent his career capturing the spirit of America in his pictures, which include United States presidents, sports, small towns, events and more. The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, U.S. News and World Report and many other publications have used his photos. His multimedia presentations include “Concert for America” at the Kennedy Center and touring multimedia shows for the United States Commission on the Bicentennial of the Constitution.
