Happy Last Week of School Parents!
There are lots of learning opportunities and skill-building resources available through SSD this summer so please find some helpful links below to connect you to all SSD has to offer our families.
Kirkwood will need up to five PAC members to represent our school district in the upcoming school year. I will be moving on to represent us on the SSD Board of Education! Each school district is represented by a voting parent representative and up to four alternates, however any parent is welcome to attend all meetings. SSD PAC meets monthly during the school year, the second Wednesday of the month at 7pm. The SSD PAC is a great way to get involved and learn more about the SSD system and meet lots of awesome, special parents. If you are interested, please visit https://tinyurl.com/ssdpac
