The Book Battle is an annual trivia-type competition hosted by Pattonville's school library technology specialists. During the event, teams of students compete on their knowledge of a predesignated list of books.

In-person classes at Rose Acres Elementary School only are canceled Friday, March 12, due to an urgent plumbing issue that needs to be repaired. While the plumbing is being fixed, restrooms in the building will not be available for use. Friday will be an independent virtual learning day for students who attend classes both in-person classes and via the Villemade Virtual Academy at Rose Acres. Students should log into their Seesaw account to view instructions from their teachers and to find out when their teachers are available for support. As an awareness for family schedules, today’s virtual learning day will not need to be made up in the future. We apologize for the inconvenience this will cause families and appreciate your patience and understanding.
