Congratulations!  Meramec Heights Elementary School has been named a 2014 Champion for Character School by Cardinals Care and Learn and Serve Missouri, in cooperation with CHARACTERplus, an initiative of the Cooperating School District.  Meramec Heights is one of three schools across the state of Missouri honored with this award.  Now in its tenth year, the Champions for Character: Celebrating Service-Learning Recognition Program recognizes schools for integrating service-learning into the school curriculum and school culture.  A panel of community judges reviews applications that describe student-led service projects with curriculum-based learning; winners are chosen based on the impact that service learning has made on the school community.  Meramec joins several Fox C-6 District schools in receiving this honor.

Meramec Heights Elementary will be recognized during a special pre-game on-field ceremony before the Cardinals game on Tuesday, May 20 at 7:15 PM.  The St. Louis Cardinals Care Organization has donated tickets for students, staff members, and community partners to attend the game.
