After-School Child Care: 
Child care is currently offered at Bridgeway Elementary, Remington Traditional, and Pattonville Heights Middle School.  Enrollment is limited to students attending these schools. This program provides our families with a safe and enriching environment for their children after school by allowing students to participate in healthy and fun events while school is not in session. Students socialize with friends, become involved in healthy activities and receive help with homework. For additional details, call (314) 213-8095.

The School/Business Partnership Office works with local businesses to set up fundraisers with Pattonville schools and programs (band, orchestra). These are booked with the PTO/PTA officers at the schools. Please contact Crystal Neff 314-213-8096 ccampbell@psdr3.org for more information.  

Student Shadowing

Supplementary Resources
The School/Business Partnership Office works with the community and area businesses to provide guest speakers, arrange field trips to enhance curriculum and instruction, and help distribute surplus supplies from businesses such as science laboratory equipment and art materials. We disseminate information about job openings, internships, scholarships, and grants. Our goal is to develop partnerships between Pattonville schools and area businesses.

The Pattonville A+ Program and Business Education Advisory Committees have members from the business community. If you are interested in serving on one of these committees, please call 213-8095.

Partnership Opportunities
Several non-profit organizations offer scholarships to our students. Both Maryland Heights Chamber of Commerce and the Northwest Chamber of Commerce as well as Kiwanis Groups offer scholarships each spring and present them at the Membership meetings in May each year.
