Message from Mayor Pagano
Back to School
As a parent, I have fond memories about this time of year. I remember my own kids getting ready to start another school year, and I can still hear the excitement in their voices as they talked about their new classmates and school activities.
With schools getting back in session soon that means parents will start back up with the busy grind of juggling school and work schedules. Everyone will seem to be in a hurry and there will be lots of distractions. All of us will need to really pay attention as we drive through our neighborhoods. This is especially true in several of our areas where there are important road construction projects still underway. Please, please make sure you allow enough time to drive through these areas safely to protect the workers, the children and others traveling through the construction zones.
Please make sure you’re watching out for kids walking to and from bus stops. When the driver of the school bus has given a signal to stop, do not drive past the school bus. That’s the law.
While the City of St. Peters does not operate our public schools, as Mayor I can tell you that your elected officials all care very much about the level of education we have in our community. I think we’re very lucky to have both outstanding schools and a lot of parent involvement, and that means our kids are getting a great education and becoming productive members of our society.
We have schools from three public school districts located in St. Peters (Fort Zumwalt, Francis Howell, and St. Charles) plus several private schools. I’m a proud grandpa now and Mayor, and I always tell parents that if they want to make their child’s education even better, get involved in your school’s parent-teacher organization. I salute all of the parents who get involved and help out whenever possible. The volunteer spirit of our residents is a big reason that I’m so proud to call St. Peters “My Hometown.”
Have a wonderful, safe school year!
