STEAM represents science, technology, engineering, art and math, while Master represents the emphasis for students to demonstrate mastery of STEAM content. The STEAMaster Competition was an opportunity for students to demonstrate their brilliance as science students by communicating their understanding of ecology in the form of a rap or poem.

Enrollment continues to grow in the Kirkwood School District, which is why it is important to register for kindergarten online in February. Enrolling in February allows time for schools to plan class schedules and placement of classrooms to maintain desired class size guidelines. Children need to be 5 years old by August 1, 2019, to attend kindergarten for the 2019-20 school year. Please visit our kindergarten registration page for more information and the link to the Infinite Campus registration website.
