Sophie is awesome
In so many ways,
She visits City Academy
On Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

With energy to spare
She’s a small ball of joy,
She helps students communicate
Both girls and boys.

Sophie has been around the block
Helping all kinds of people,
From students to patients
She’s visited all the townspeople.

Letter from the President- Black History Month

“Memories of our lives, of our works and our deeds will continue in others.” – Rosa Parks

These words are stenciled on the walls of City Academy along with several other inspiring quotes. So many schools celebrate Rosa Parks and many other influential African-Americans during Black History Month each February. I like to think that City Academy continually celebrates history and the heroes who have inspired us. I spend much time reflecting on the great many people who have shaped our school, as well as my belief that children, regardless of income or race, will overcome barriers with their determination, hard work, and a support system of exceptional educators with bold expectations.

City Academy has always celebrated Black History Month by recognizing individuals who have made a difference in society. Students typically study historical African-American leaders in the classroom and honor these leaders at school assemblies. But this year, we decided to bring awareness to great local African-American leaders. We want our students to know there are amazing leaders in St. Louis making a real difference in the community.

Buddy Morning

Buddy Morning is a great opportunity for both community supporters and students. Twice a year, community partners, donors, supporters and volunteers spend one-on-one time with a student and experience what makes our school so special. These buddies participate in a learning activity together and are given a tour of the school by their student buddy!

City Academy hosted the 18th Bi-Annual Buddy Morning on October 28, 2015, which attracted 101 individuals form the community. Each attendee was paired with a scholar and had the opportunity to build a relationship through educational activities.

Today marks one month since we returned to school. The first days of school were filled with excitement, anticipation, and a wonderful energy that was infectious throughout City Academy. Students and teachers may not be as anxious as they were on that first day of school, but their excitement and contagious energy still abounds.

The first few weeks of school have allowed teachers to reminisce about their first days of school as students and as teachers, and have allowed students to share their hopes and dreams for the new school year.

I found City Academy though a friend when I was looking for a new volunteer opportunity and for almost three years, I have had the joy of working on developing reading skills with Daphne, a wonderful little girl full of energy and life.
