Missouri Heritage is a field trip presented each spring and fall for 3rd grade students in the Rockwood School District.  This event takes place at the Outdoor Education Center at Babler State Park and gives students the opportunity to experience what life was like for settlers of Missouri in the early to mid 1800’s.

Civil War Living History

Each spring, the Civil War Living History event is presented at Beaumont Scout Reservation for all 8th grade students in the Rockwood School District. Students are provided the opportunity to experience what life was like for soldiers on both sides of the conflict, as well as for African-Americans.

8th Grade Career Fair

The 8th Grade Career Fair is held each year in February and every 8th-grade student in the district participates. This event is an opportunity for students to meet with business and industry experts to gain information about potential career paths. Students are given an opportunity to explore four occupations of their choosing from over 40 offerings. The day is a culmination of preparation by teachers, guidance counselors, and Partners in Education staff.

St. Louis County Apprenticeship & Career Pathways Showcase

Families and students in grades 6 through 12, as well as recent graduates, are invited to join us for the St. Louis County Apprenticeship & Career Pathways Showcase! This interactive event will expose students to exciting and fulfilling job opportunities in careers that provide on-the-job training instead of the traditional, 4-year degree.

Come learn more about these exciting and fulfilling job opportunities at any of the three host locations. The events are FREE and open to students and families from all neighboring school districts.
