  • Robinson Elementary Makes Strides to Diversify Classroom Libraries and Raises Over $20,000

    Robinson Elementary School in the Kirkwood School District hosted a Fun Run on Thursday, May 6 on the school’s campus. During the day students from the Kirkwood At Home (KAH) program and Robinson students took turns running laps to raise funds for classroom libraries. When the rain came, students went inside for a dance party. Over the past two weeks, Robinson has supported a “pledge page” where donors commit a dollar amount for each lap run by the principal. Every lap run will raise money for books for the classroom library diversification efforts. Students in the KAH program participated in a virtual dance party to also raise funds. The project collected over $20,000, which will purchase over 4,000 books.
