Trautwein Elementary

National School of Character

Trautwein has been named a Missouri and National School of Character! Trautwein focuses a great deal of energy on character education. Our purpose is to support our families in their effort to help the children develop strong positive character traits. Each Monday Trautwein students participate in Character Events such as School Community Assemblies, Buddies, and School Community Lessons. The State Schools of Character program recognizes schools for embedding the CEP’s Eleven Principles of Effective Character Education into their daily practices.

Building and Facilities

Trautwein School's original building opened in 1964. The next year an addition was added that doubled the size of the school. The entire building houses thirty classrooms including an art, music and computer room, plus a library, gymnasium, cafeteria, office and conference room. During the summer of 2002, Proposition P funds were used to update all of Trautwein's HVAC systems, allowing the building to be fully climate controlled. The computer lab was also updated adding thirty student workstations. Computers were installed in each classroom in the building. All of these computers are networked district-wide and are capable of accessing the Internet. Thanks to Prop R, the district to hired 11 interventionsist.
