We must ALL work towards becoming
a Community again.
Thus to start it out I say Welcome, we must start with a smile and a hello to those we pass by
day to day.
We must protect each other by becoming our Neighbors Keeper...Make the calls to 911, when you see something,
anything that appears Suspicious or out of the ordinary. The police would rather handle a call that turns out to be nothing,
or m...aybe prevents a crime from occurring, than handle
a call where you have already become a victim.
Our children are in desperate need of our attention, we are all very
busy in our daily lives however we must take a step backwards in time to change the future. Be involved in your child's education
somehow, whether it be by following up on the homework, attending a class party or going to the Pto/Pta meetings...your participation
in their education strengthens the Teachers ability to help your child succeed and shows your child just how important it
is that they learn so they can succeed in their futures.
Now I need your thoughts...How else can we turn around this
crazy world we are raising our families in?
Let's work together on this, please. Whether you elect me on not.
The Little Bit Foundation
Our distribution model is one of a kind. At each of our partner schools, we establish Little Bit Boutiques, where students
are visited weekly by a consistent team of volunteers, who deliver essential items and take time to engage and encourage each
child. Additionally, Little Bit teams, at times in concert with program affiliates, organize literacy events, health and wellness
screenings and education, and other integral programs to serve the needs of the whole child – body, mind and spirit.
is a very important topic, awareness must be built on it, if we are to see change.
In some way or another Mental Illness effects every person, whether it be them, a friend, a loved one, or the person who makes
them a victim. If I had my drothers it would be a required high school class to give the kids a head start on understanding
themselves, others and being aware of the signs.
you Mary, Ritenour and Neighborhood Watch for bringing this back to the forefront for awareness.
Watch is extremely Proactive...Our PD works hard to keep our City safe. Don't let the Media influence your opinions.
There are 6 major companies that own everything and they are all Media Companies. Municipal policing is a good idea. They
are more in touch with the residents of the communities. Typically since they are only assigned to the muni they are within,
service times are 2-5 minutes as well. There are many good aspects of SB5 as a matter of Fact the munis
helped put together the Minimum Standards of the Law. To become CALEA certified takes 3 years, No Less, which is one of the
reasons Stenger's Bill was an Overreach of Government. The other reason it was an Overreach of Government is simply stated....The
Police Departments are governed by the State of Missouri as are the Municipalities. St Louis County is a political subdivision
of the state just like the rest of the munis. Below see the NW Post...
St. Ann Neighborhood Watch
I stumbled across an amazing video this morning. Although it addresses tough issues,
please take a minute few minutes to watch it. Here's a website to reach Chris Stapleton's Fire Away video through billboard.com or you should be able to click on the picture below to watch.
Also, as mentioned at the Neighborhood Watch Meeting
last week, Officer Luu discussed an upcoming P.A.W.S. (the parent group at Hoech Middle school) meeting that will be held
at Hoech Middle School on March 14. Megan Meier’s mom, Tina, will discuss the effects of bullying, cyberbullying and
suicide. All are welcome, but they would like a head count. If you would like to attend, please call 314-327-8000 ext. 1271).
Everyone knows someone....My daughter has ADHD linked here is a school project she did on it in the 8th grade at Hoech Middle
School. Today she is at UMSL studying to be a Psychiatrist.
Promotion needs to end as well;
are not helping children into the future when we pass them
from grade to grade without the skills needed for the next level. I was at a
meeting where they stated Social Promotion came along because people did not want
14yr olds in 1st grade classes. This is a ridiculous excuse to pass kids
through the system without the tools necessary to succeed.
If they fail the 1st
year, additional steps should be taken to help them through the next. We wonder
why there is hopelessness in society, yet we promote programs that lead to it.
Parents expect that when their child moves to the next grade that they are
ready, they do not expect that their child was not prepared.
We must invest in our
children from the
beginning, they will be the future leaders of our great nation as well as the
ones that take care of us when we grow too old to do it ourselves.
