The St. Louis question is unavoidable at Our Lady of Life Apartments in Shrewsbury, where the answer has led to fun gatherings of residents who have an answer in common.

"You know St. Louis, when you move in somewhere, people say, 'What high school did you go to?' You move in here one day, and the next day we know if you went to Rosati-Kain," said Helen Guenthel, Class of 1942.

Rosati-Kain High School students took a test in the new chemistry classroom, part of the space created with the completion of a three-story addition to the school.The new wing boasts the lab, a learning commons and courtyard.

On the very first day of school, in the very first class period, senior Sarah Nolte staked out her new favorite place at Rosati-Kain High School – the learning commons and adjacent library in the foyer of the school's freshly minted, $4.5 million addition.

She sat at a table in the spacious, airy area -- think HGTV's "open concept" to the extreme -- reading a book and basking in natural light coming through windows facing the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis to the west and a fabulous, brick-paved courtyard to the east.

"I love the library," Nolte said, simply and succinctly.

Big move at Rosati-Kain is more organized, less chaos

A three-story, $4.5 million addition and other improvements to Rosati-Kain High School in St. Louis is almost complete. Student volunteers Kate Kiser and Emily Powers spent their Saturday morning moving books from the old library.

With 80 volunteers gathered in the Rosati-Kain gymnasium for marching orders May 16, chief organizer Nancy Mueller described The Big Move as "organized chaos."

Indeed. Mueller had made plans for the group -- students, parents, teachers, staff, spouses and families -- to transfer the library (at least 6,000 titles) and chemistry lab from crammed quarters in Rosati-Kain's original 1920s building into the bright, airy space in the school's 12,000-square-foot addition.

A series of "FIRSTS" for robotics team at Rosati-Kain High School

They were headed to the competition venue at the St. Louis Regional at Chaifetz Arena on the St. Louis University campus March 20. SistamatiK is the first all-girl FIRST Robotics Competition team in the region.

Youngsters Nichole and Elena Kellogg stopped at Rosati-Kain's pit area on the event floor at Chaifetz Arena, and freshman Cassie Kightlinger wasted no time in greeting them and telling all about the Rosati-Kain group.

Think, "all-girls robotics team" ... repeated often.

Best of all, she brought them inside the tent for an up-close look at "Guilly," Rosati-Kain's robot.
