ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR) - On Saturday the doors of 33 St. Louis public elementary schools were opened for their first every "My Neighborhood School" event.
Parents, alumni and students, principals and teachers were able to meet and talk about the districts programs and activities.
Superintendent Dr. Kelvin Adams says it’s a good way to showcase the schools and it’s timed to help parents, because the spring is the best time for parents to make decisions about their child's education.
"Parents are making decisions now many of them are evaluating what’s best for their kids and we have a proposition on the ballot on Tuesday and we are hoping they vote on Tuesday to support our schools. See how schools welcome parents see how they challenge young people every day to do well academically and socially”. Adams said
The first 100 visitors received a free school supply pouch filled with pencils, pens rulers and sharpeners. Free meals were also given out along with free temporary tattoos for the kids.
