Welcome back to returning students and a warm welcome to those of you new to the Hiram Neuwoehner school community! We are busy preparing for the 2017 – 2018 school year. This year we are pleased to welcome new members to our teaching and support staff! Please mark your calendars to attend Open House on Thursday, August 10 to meet your student’s teachers and staff and to learn more about Neuwoehner including PTO, transition planning, and curriculum.


Parent Portal: This online registration system should only take 10 – 15 minutes to complete. The Portal can be accessed through most internet-enabled devices. Computers will be at Open House. The Web site will help you with forgotten Usernames and Passwords.


The Web address for Parent Portal is  https://sdm.sisk12.com/ssd360


A school calendar and medical forms were mailed to your home. Please return your forms at Open House or the first week! We MUST have emergency contact info on the first day of school!


Dates and times to remember:


Open House – Thursday, August 10 from 4 p.m. – 6 p.m.


Students’ First Day – Monday, August 14th


School Hours 7:40 a.m. – 2:15 p.m.


PTO: This year the PTO has added evening meetings to its calendar in hopes of welcoming additional families! We look forward to seeing you! Our PTO will be at Open House to meet you and answer questions. The first PTO meeting is Thursday, August 17 at 9 a.m.


Safety: Your Student/Family Handbook contains helpful information including the school calendar, forms, and phone numbers. After reviewing this with teachers during the first week of school, your student will bring a copy home for you to review as a family. It is also available on the Neuwoehner Web site.


Transportation: Watch your mail for transportation information from the bus garage regarding pick-up and drop-off times. The garage number is 314-989-7164. If you had a change of address this summer please contact us ASAP at 314-989-8700. It takes five to ten days to change bus routes and add new students.


On Monday, August 21, Neuwoehner and the St. Louis area will be able to watch a total solar eclipse. We couldn’t think of a more special event to theme our school year around. We are looking forward to our school year being Out of This World!
