Blades Family,

We hope everyone is doing well this week and enjoying a much needed break from the Winter weather.  Hopefully we are out of Jack Frost’s grip and can start getting ready for some Spring temperatures!  

I wanted to take this opportunity to say Thanks to all of our families for their TREMENDOUS support of the Kid’s Heart Challenge this year!!  We raised over $9,000 for the American Heart Association!  I am always amazed at the giving and caring spirit at Blades to help those in the community!

Tidbits and Reminders:

How Prop S will affect Blades Elementary

  • Register to vote by March 10 to participate in the April election! Mehlville School District residents have an important item on the April 6, 2021, ballot.  The district is asking voters for a zero tax rate increase bond issue, called Prop S. If passed, Prop S would fund facility projects that improve student safety, and address critical infrastructure needs like restroom renovations, ADA accessibility, and HVAC and roofing replacements without raising the tax rate.

  • Parents and other residents are encouraged to learn more about Prop S and to vote. If you aren’t already registered to vote, the deadline to register is Wednesday, March 10, 2021. The Missouri Secretary of State’s website has several options to register to vote: 

  • After spring break I will send out a Parent Information Survey regarding your child’s placement next year at Blades for the 2021-2022 school year.  This is an opportunity for you to share feedback (volunarily) on what type of learning environment your child thrives in best.  

Upcoming Events and Dates:

  • BBB Parent meeting is Wednesday, March 10 at 6:30pm over Zoom

  • Conference Week is March 15-19 at Blades.  Your teacher may be contacting you to set up conferences.  It is not a requirement for teachers to hold conferences for every student, but if you would like a conference with your teacher be sure to contact them.  

  • 3rd Quarter ends on Friday, March 19!!

  • Spring Break is March 22-26.  There will be no school that week!


Have a wonderful weekend Bobcats and Stay Safe!!

See ya soon,

Dr. Booker
