Parent Survey on Middle School Schedule

Please take a moment to provide us feedback on our master schedule at Hixson.  We are looking for parent input regarding our school's schedule as we continue to look at providing the best opportunities possible for learning for students at Hixson. The survey will be closed this evening. Thank you!


Help us Share the Good News in the District!

We’re looking for at least five parent volunteers from each school who would be willing to help share the good news about the Webster Groves School District this year by Facebook and other social media. Cathy Vespereny, the district’s community relations director, will provide news items on a regular basis and the volunteers would help promote the news electronically. If you’re interested in helping with this, please e-mail Cathy at vespereny.cathy@wgmail.org and let her know which school you represent. 

Thank you for your support and encouragement of your children.  We look forward to our continued partnership! Please let me know if I can be of help to you or your child in any way.  Feel free to email, call, or schedule a visit- my door is always open!
