WELCOME FROM THE
SUPERINTENDENT
It is my pleasure to introduce this
year’s Webster Groves School District
Directory for 2017-18, produced in
partnership with the Webster-Kirkwood
Times.
This year’s directory contains useful
information about our district and
schools in one handy publication. You
can find information about board
meetings, district telephone numbers,
school hours and more. You’ll also notice some new faces
in administrative positions.
As we look forward to another wonderful year in the

SPECIALIZED CARE
school district, I’d like thank the community for your
support for a successful 2016-17. While I can’t list all of the
many achievements of our students and staff, I’d like to

FOR CHILDREN
note that members of the outstanding class of 2017
earned more than 650 scholarships worth $25.9 million;
the WGHS boys basketball team won a state championship
and the WGHS girls soccer team won its first state title;
music students excelled in state competition; and members
of the district’s outstanding faculty continued to provide
innovative opportunities for learning in our classrooms.
AND ADULTS
It’s an exciting time to be in this district!
I’d also like to thank the Times for publishing this
directory as well as all of the businesses and individuals
who support it with advertising. We appreciate this
opportunity to connect with our community.
