  • Family Newsletter 10/17/21

    Hello everyone-

    I hope that your family is able to enjoy the long weekend. I can't believe that the first quarter is already finished! It has been so nice getting to see students outside with masks off this year and get to see their sweet faces! I have seen so much learning and growing in our classrooms! Students have begun to transfer skills from one classroom space across settings. I have seen them grown in their social skills and positive peer interactions in the cafe, playground, and classrooms. Kiddos are following our expectations of being safe, being kind, and being a learner. I am so proud of our kids and so grateful for our staff who work tirelessly to support them.

    Please reach out at any time to share any questions, concerns, or ideas. I am here to help and support you and your family. Thanks for all you do to help keep our students and staff safe.

    Take Care-

  • Connecting with the Counselors

    October 17, 2021

    Good Evening,

    Perhaps you, like us, are wondering how it is we are finished with our first quarter of the school year? We feel as if the year just began, not that we are a fourth of the way finished!

    Last week we spoke about hard things-- specifically suicide. Thank you for your feedback and support of our message. We do not like to make anyone feel uncomfortable, and our aim in sharing is to not only support all of our students-- including your student-- but also to end this stigma around mental illness which makes us uncomfortable. The sooner we are able to see that mental wellness is as important as physical wellness (really a part of our physical wellness), the better.

    REPEAT: Please continue to reach out if we can be helpful. All of our contact information can be found at the end of this communication. If you feel our response time has been slower this week, it may have been. We are all doing our very best to answer all needs in our building. If you have reached out without an answer, please send us another email to remind us. We appreciate all you do each day for your children and reminding us of what they may need is a part of that. Thank you.

    Students at Nipher Middle School in the Kirkwood School District participated in the “Childhood Smart Program.” The program was created in partnership with the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) to help educate parents and children about computer and personal safety. William J. Shink, Assistant Special Agent in Charge (ASAIC) of the Secret Service St. Louis Field Office presented to students in the Nipher 6th grade Wellness classes. During the presentation, Shink shared the “NetSmartz, Online Safety” presentation that was developed by the Secret Service to share educational resources for parents and K-12 students created by NCMEC. The NetSmartz Online Safety presentation is designed for 6-8 grade students, addressing issues they may encounter online including inappropriate content, online privacy, online solicitations, and cyberbullying. “Decisions you make today on what you post will impact your outcomes in the future for college, jobs, and beyond,” said Shink. “Once you click ‘post’, it’s out there forever.”

  • Kirkwood High School Student Earns Girl Scout Gold Award

    Kirkwood High School junior Samantha Hepburn completed her Girl Scout Gold Award, the highest honor a young lady can achieve in Girl Scouts. Samantha is a junior at Kirkwood High School. Last school year, she applied, implemented, and completed her Gold Award Project. Samantha's project was setting up a sustainable supply of feminine hygiene product for the Ritenour Food Pantry. In addition to holding a feminine hygiene drive and collecting over 14,000 pieces of product, she created a video for the pantry's website discussing the inequities in securing feminine product, and she delivered a sustainable model of acquisition so that Ritenour Food Pantry can always offer product to their clients.
