St. Louis Park Public Schools is excited to announce a new, free opportunity for parents, families, students and neighbors to talk about race and racism, called the HOPE Speaks Project. Parents and families of all races, and their children in grades 3-5, are invited to explore Honest, Open, Personal and Engaged (HOPE) conversations around race and racism.
Seven St. Louis Park High School seniors have recently been recognized by the National Merit Scholarship Program as either a semifinalist or a commended scholar for 2020. Ella Thomas and Mitchell VonEschen have been named National Merit Semifinalists, while five other students have been named National Merit Commended Scholars.
We are celebrating St. Louis Park as we begin the 2019-20 school year! A special thanks to 2015 graduate Malik Augustus, who shared his voice to help us tell the story of how this community continues to put its Children First.
