• Each month, the Special Administrative Board recognizes the best and brightest in the St. Louis Public Schools with the Spirit of Excellence award.  Students, staff and community members who deserve a special bravo are highlighted because of their academic performance, community service and personal accomplishments.

    On December 16, three very talented young ladies from Kennard Classical Junior Academy were recognized.  The fourth graders are Kristian Quigless, Naomi Schaeffer and Sophia DeCampi. They were first place winners in the Fifth Annual Missouri Homelessness Awareness Event which was held in the State Capitol"s rotunda. The big event consisted of a poster contest with student entries from across the state.

    Their art teacher is Anne Wirthlin. These are three young ladies you will want to keep your eye on. They are smart, talented and destined for continued future success!
