St. Margaret of Scotland School Announces Community Alliance for Education

St. Margaret of Scotland School and four prominent community service organizations announce the formation of the Community Alliance for Education.  Cardinal Glennon Foundation, St. Louis University, Gateway Greening, and the Missouri Botanical Garden are partnering with St. Margaret of Scotland School to expand the educational opportunities of students and their families.

“Our new relationship with these esteemed groups will allow our students educational opportunities not possible without the alliance.  We are happy to announce the Community Alliance for Education, and believe that it speaks to the vitality and growth of our school here in the City of St. Louis,” said Father Matthew O’Toole, Pastor at St. Margaret of Scotland Catholic Church.

The alliance members will offer:

  • Cardinal Glennon Foundation:  Will work with students, teachers, and parents to develop healthy eating habits and active life choices.
  • St. Louis University:  Will work using St. Margaret of Scotland School science teachers as mentors for teachers in training at the university, and help to provide college volunteers to work as tutors with students at the school.
  • Gateway Greening and the Missouri Botanical Garden:  Will work with St. Margaret of Scotland School students in the Dragon’s Grove Garden at the school to learn the cycles of the seasons and how to plant and harvest throughout the year.

The alliance will be formally announced to the community at an event on Saturday, September 14, 2013 at the school located at 3964 Castleman Avenue, St. Louis, MO, 63104. Please contact Chris Thetford thetfordcl@gmail.com or by phone at 314-681-4719 with media questions.
