Veteran's Day Assembly

Monday, November 11, 2019 is our annual Veterans Day assembly.  We would love to honor the brave men and women that have served and/or are serving our country by inviting them to our assembly at 2:00 in the Spoede gymnasium (along with you).  We ask that you use the link below to RSVP to this special event.   We are also creating a bulletin board to honor these heroes.  If you have a friend or family member that has served or is serving our country (whether they can make the assembly or not), please send in a picture of him/her to the Spoede Office.  Make sure this is a copy, as the picture will not be returned.

Thank you!

Ladue Schools App

Dear Spoede Families,

For the time being please do not use the Ladue Schools App to determine when Spoede events and activities are.  We have determined that the app is not communicating with our calendar and have solicited help to try and  help fix this situation. 
Open House is September 3rd, NOT August 27th.

Thanks!

Principal's Update

What an amazing first day of school!!  I'd like to thank everyone for such a smooth morning!  It was so wonderful to see all of you and to welcome back our turtles!!  Thank you so much for parking only in Lanes 2 & 3 in the front and back behind the gym.  The kids have been absolutely amazing today.  Classes have been learning class procedures and doing team building activities to start building a classroom community.

Please remember that tomorrow we ask that students enter school by themselves.  Kindergarten parents- DO NOT WORRY!!  We have lots of staff and 4th Grade Volunteers to help the kids get to class.

Have a great evening!

Dear Spoede Families,

It is so hard to believe we have only 9 day of school remaining.  There are so many great events coming up: the Spoede Picnic on the 17, 4th Grade Celebration, Play Day for the students, etc.  I also wanted to let everyone know that Dr. Wipke, our new superintendent will be attending the SSA General Meeting next Tuesday at 7 in the Spoede Library.  The gym foyer door will be open that evening for entering.  Hope to see everyone there!!

Have a nice weekend,

Kim
