School buses for Long Elementary School will now travel through the Doercrest Manor subdivision for morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up.
The Lindbergh Schools Board of Education unanimously passed a new traffic plan for Long Elementary School at Tuesday's board meeting. The plan drew criticism from residents in the Doercrest Manor subdivision, where school bus traffic will now be directed before and after school. Residents gathered more than 150 signatures on a petition asking the school board to find a new solution for traffic at Long. The newly approved traffic set-up should ease the flow of morning pick-up and afternoon drop-off at Long, which Superintendent Jim Simpson and Long Principal Jana Parker have both called a "ballet dance," carefully choreographing movements from students, parents, cars and buses to get kids to school safely.

Griffs get out fast and dominate Flyers in opening game of Coaches vs Cancer at Scottrade Center.
There are those embarassing moments in sports. Lindbergh shot just 3 of 35 from the field and were destroyed 37-8 by rival Vianney in the opening game of the Coaches vs Cancer Shootout at Scottrade Center in downtown St. Louis. And the Griffs played without the services of their top performer Brad Woodsen who suffered a knock to the head Monday against Clayton and watched in street clothes. "I was nervous not having Brad," said Griffs coach Sean Walsh." Senior 6-foot-9 Sean O'Brien picked up the slack, leading all scorers with 17 points. He has offers from Harding College, Searcy, Arkansas and CBC of Memphis and looks from UMSL, Quincy, Central Missouri and others. "I thought we played well. I'm glad we won," said O'Brien. So too was Walsh…

Lindbergh High School freshman Joey Musial and his Brentwood Boy Scout troop built a butterfly garden for elementary school students.
Lindbergh High School freshman Joey Musial recently built a butterfly garden at Concord Elementary School for his Eagle Scout project. At Truman Elementary School, Joey and his classmates in the Program for Exceptionally Gifted Students visited the school’s butterfly on several occasions during classroom activities. However, when Truman students moved to Concord in 2011, they no longer had access to a butterfly garden. Joey’s project has provided a solution by giving back to the PEGS community while also fulfilling his Eagle Project requirement. Joey’s fellow Scouts in Troop 361 from Brentwood assisted with the project, and Tom Krauska (aka Tom Terrific, the butterfly man) lent his expertise and donated the plants.
