FFSD administrators had the chance to support literacy and their colleagues by attending the St. Louis Regional Literacy Association’s Spring Gala. SLRLA is committed to ensuring that students are competent and confident readers. 

SLRLA is a chapter of the Missouri Literacy Association whose mission is to empower educators, inspire students and encourage leaders with the resources they need to make literacy accessible for all. 

Dr. Shenise Terrell, FFSD’s SSD director, is a member of the SLRLA board and co-hosted the event with Dr. Exley Warren. Alex Stallings, director of early learning of Nine PBS, served as the keynote speaker. Many thanks to our community partner SLRLA for this great event.
