Reed Elementary Wins Selfie Contest

Congratulations to Reed Elementary, the school that won the selfie competition! We asked that each school’s teachers try and take a selfie with every student as an activity to reach “Every Student. Every Day.” As a treat, the Kona Ice truck stopped by during each recess!

The number of selfies all Ladue Schools teachers took with their students was astounding. While we hoped everyone would have a little fun with it, interacting with students one-on-one can sometimes make their day!  “Every Student. Every Day.” is a high standard, and we find that our staff work hard to make this a reality. So thanks to our teachers  for diving right into this activity with us!
