Students filing in for the first day of school at Gateway Elementary School in St. Louis.
St. Louis Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Kelvin Adams and other district administrators visited 25 churches on Sunday, Aug. 12, 2012. They asked congregations to help make sure kids get to their first day class.
Superintendent Kelvin Adams says more than 1,200 of Imagine’s 3,500 students have applied to attend St. Louis Public Schools next year. He says if enough parents are interested, the district will open as many as six new buildings that would allow Imagine students to stay together.
