Yesterday, you should have received an email from me with important information about the April Proposition. Last Monday, the Board approved the "green option" as part of the District’s Enrollment Growth Strategy. The option selected includes building a K-5 elementary school on District property on Lindeman and Dougherty Ferry, often referred to as the “Lindeman property.” The bond proposal also includes classroom additions, other facility improvements, and safety and accessibility improvements throughout the District. I would encourage you to visit this link for complete details and always feel free to contact me with questions!
The email I am referring to can be viewed at THIS LINK.
Please let me know if I can be of service or support.
The Missouri School Board's Association search consultant, Dr. Brent Underwood, updated the leadership profile of the next superintendent of Kirkwood Schools based on feedback from the Board, staff and the community. The main qualities highlighted include a strategic thinker and thought leader who makes recommendations to the Board through data-driven decisions and can engage all stakeholders to reinforce the bonds among the Board, our schools, the District, and the community to advocate for children.
KSD schools honored veterans at various events on Monday, November 11. North Kirkwood Middle School conducted a tribute to veterans in the library. Kirkwood High School welcomed veterans into social studies classrooms where vets shared their military experiences with students. All elementary schools held events and welcomed veterans. Students paid tribute to veterans through singing songs, reading poems, and writing personalized cards.
On Wednesday, October 16, hundreds of Kirkwood School District (KSD) students participated in the fourth annual Unified Night Lights unified flag football event. The inaugural event was held in September 2016. The event recreates the excitement of a traditional football game. Hundreds of students, with and without disabilities, came together. The philosophy behind the event is that sports help provide a path to friendships and understanding and help break down barriers. Students stormed the field, cheered from the track, and played instruments from the pep band section in the bleachers.
