Back-to-school bashes get Mehlville students ready to learn


Katalina Aguayo, above, enjoys listening to teachers read a story in Trautwein Elementary’s outdoor learning space Aug. 10. At Trautwein Kindergarten Story Time, students had the opportunity to meet their teachers and classmates before the first day of school and listen to their teachers read a story. The event is one of several back-to-school activities hosted by the Mehlville School District prior to the first day of school Aug. 25, which also includes a popsicle playdate at Blades Elementary, locker decorating at Oakville Middle School and more.
