I hope your long weekend and Thanksgiving celebration was all that you and your family needed it to be!
Thanks to the generosity of the Robinson community and partners like the MOMS Club of Kirkwood, the Kirkwood Fire and Rescue, St. Gerard Majella and Trinity Presbyterian, 20 families were supported for their Thanksgiving dinner. The Robinson Cares Food Pantry was stuffed with turkeys, pies and all the goodies to go along with them. Truly, a #onekirkwood holiday!
Robinson Cares also launched their winter gear drive and all of the feather requests have been "plucked!" The PTO Robinson Cares Committee is so thankful for our community's generosity!
As we head into these last three weeks of the semester, please let me know if I can be of service or support.
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.
