Mayor Francis Slay visited GSA

Mayor Francis Slay visited Gateway Science Academy on December 10, 2015. He read Good Night, St. Louis to the Kindergarten students. The Mayor his new friends talked about their favorite places in our city. Mayor Slay chose Forest Park as his favorite spot! He told the kids that it is one place with many places in it!

Fifth grade, Student Ambassadors took the Mayor on a tour of the school. This is always a favorite part of his visits because Mayor Slay graduated from the building in 1969. He talked to the kids about class sizes back then–60 students per class! There were over 1000 kids in the school in those days as well!

We look forward to the Mayor’s next visit!
