KECC News You Can Use

  • Our wonderful PTO is launching our Kangaroo Cares Charity Drive beginning today through December 13th. This year, the donated items collected are going to help fill Promise Place for families to access as needed. You can find additional details about the drive and the Sign Up Genius by clicking here. As you enter our building, you will notice a poster with a big cup of hot chocolate displayed. For each item donated, we would like to have the family that contributed it add a fun marshmallow sticker to our cup of hot chocolate. Let's fill our cup together! Thanks you for your consideration of supporting this drive.

    Happy December,

  • The Kirkwood School District is partnering with Blackboard to build district and school websites that will provide a responsive and engaging web experience for visitors across every device. “We are looking forward to improving our electronic communication with parents and community members,” said Dr. Michele Condon, superintendent of schools.

    Blackboard Web Community Manager is a website and content management system that provides the tools and capabilities to build a website that will serve as a communications hub, engaging all members of the community via continually updated website content, blogs, forms and surveys, social media and other tools. Kirkwood School District will also use responsive web design (RWD) services to ensure its website can be easily read and navigated on a wide range of devices, from desktops to mobile phones and tablets.

    The District will continue to use the Blackboard Mobile Communications App for iPhones and Android phones and allows staff to update the website and produce notifications directly from smartphones. The app is available for parents and other community members to download for quick mobile access to district information without having to navigate the website.
