  • WOW- We did it!!!!

    Hello everyone-

    I hope that this message finds everyone doing well.

    To all of our mothers, Happy Mother's Day. We appreciate all the moms in our school community. The love and support you give each day is amazing. We appreciate all the extra you took on during this pandemic year. You were a teacher, a nurse, a chef, and so much more plus being a mom. THANK YOIU!

    We are so grateful for all of the support from our school families, KAH families, community members, and corporate sponsors that supported our Boosterthon Fun Run. We surpassed our goal and raised around $20,000. This should get us around 4,000 books for our classroom libraries. You may think that sounds like a lot of books for our teachers, but when you spread this over 40 teachers it is around 100 books per teacher. Within each classroom teachers will have books at a variety of reading levels because we have students at a variety of reading levels. The additional books we purchase will be both fiction and nonfiction diverse texts by authentic voices. It is important that our classroom library is as diverse as the world that our students are living in and our children have books with characters that look like them and their community. Thank you everyone, we are so excited by our library expansion!

    Please reach out if you have any questions, concerns, ideas, or if we can provide support in any way. Thank you for your partnership in keeping the Robinson community safe.

    Take Care-

    Angeline

  • Good Evening,

    Happy Mother's Day to all of our moms celebrating today!

    Tonight I want to offer information about anxiety. This may feel like a repeat, however, last week we heard from a lot of kiddos (and adults) who are feeling anxious. We have talked about anxiety a lot this year. We have also taught many different coping tools and strategies, and sometimes a refresher can be helpful.

    Also included here tonight are great ideas about how to use daily mindfulness practice to build Emotional Intelligence or EI. EI can be included, in our CASEL Core 5 I have been sharing about over the past 5 weeks and the idea of building ways to self-regulate..

    On Tuesday night some of our counseling team will join in the PTO meeting to speak about our partnership with the PTO Robinson Cares committee and all the great work that has been accomplished in the past year. We will also do a quick overview about our Food Pantry.

    We hope to see you on zoom!

    At the end of this message you can find our counseling team's contact information. We are still wrapping up some"loose ends" with MAP testing that can impact our schedules, but for the most part we will be returning to more typical schedules this week. Thanks so much for your patience these past few weeks.

    Take care,

    Julie

  • Glendale-Kirkwood Kiwanis Present Early Reader Books to Kindergarteners

    The Glendale-Kirkwood Kiwanis Club gifted each of the kindergarten students in the Kirkwood School District (KSD) with an early reader book as part of the service club’s Early Reader Program. Due to COVID restrictions, members of the club dropped off books to each KSD elementary school including students in the KSD At Home program. Kindergarten teachers are presenting the books to their students last week and this week. The program was initiated in spring 2006 when the Glendale-Kirkwood Kiwanis Club gifted books to each of KSD’s 275 kindergarteners. This year, the club members gifted books to each of KSD’s 477 kindergarteners. Over the years, the Kiwanis Early Reader Program has become an annual “graduation” gift for KSD kindergartners and celebrates of the young students’ love of reading, “We are grateful for the Kiwanis Club’s sponsorship of this important program, even with our continued enrollment growth,” said Dr. David Ulrich, KSD superintendent. The Kirkwood teachers selected the books from a list of age-appropriate books prepared by Kiwanis Club member Lynn Bosso from the Kirkwood Public Library.

  • National School Nurse Day

    National School Nurse Day is celebrated on May 12, 2021. The theme is: Championing the Whole Student. This theme recognizes the integral role that school nurses play in bridging health and education to improve each child’s cognitive, physical, social, and emotional development, regardless of whether they are physically present in school or not. School nurses champion the whole student every day of the year. But, on National School Nurse Day, we take special time to celebrate and recognize the contributions that school nurses are making to the health and learning of our KSD students. Kirkwood School District celebrates and acknowledges the accomplishments of our school nurses and their efforts in meeting the needs of students by improving the delivery of healthcare in our schools. We offer gratitude for their contribution to our community by helping students stay healthy, in school, and ready to learn, and keeping parents and guardians at work, not just on this National School Nurse Day, but at every opportunity throughout the year. School nurses serve as a critical health hub for students, ensuring that students are ready for learning by managing complex chronic conditions; identifying and addressing mental health issues; leveling the field on health disparities and promoting healthy behaviors; connecting families to healthcare providers; handling medical emergencies... and now, navigating through the COVID-19 pandemic by testing, tracking and providing vaccination information to students and school personnel. To our nursing team: thank you, for everything you do for our students and schools!
