Introducing the Class of 2031 ::..
Kindergarten is a special moment for both parents and our newest lifelong learners. STPPS continues to celebrate the first of many milestones for our kindergartners as they each received a Class of 2031 T-shirt.
All year long, kindergartners will be encouraged to wear their Class of 2031 T-shirts. As a special surprise, STPPS Superintendent Trey Folse made a pair of school visits to hand deliver Class of 2031 T-shirts.
“We want these shirts to be a friendly welcome to the new families in our school district. These shirts are a sign that we are here to support them and their child from start to finish in their education,” Folse said.
Stay tuned for group photos from all 23 kindergarten groups as well ...
