I hope you heard great things about Robinson University! Our sessions for first through fifth graders ranged from cooking to law enforcement, from track and field to yoga! Our next session will be on January 17.
MONDAY is our very important Veterans Day Celebration. Doors will open at 1:30 and our program begins at 2:00. Our celebration has grown to include more and more honored guests every year so seating does get tight. We will stream the event on Facebook live and offer overflow seating in the cafeteria. Please don't feel slighted if we ask you to sit in the cafeteria because we are out of seats.
Please reach out 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.
The first officially recorded Thanksgiving Day football game between Kirkwood High School (KHS) and neighboring Webster Groves High School (WGHS) was held in 1907. Since then, with only a few exceptions, the two schools have met each year on the football field to compete for the “Turkey Day Championship” and the coveted Frisco Bell trophy. More than just a football game, Turkey Day has become a celebration of spirit and pride for both communities. In anticipation of the 2019 football game, KSD students and alumni will begin the “Turkey Day Game” countdown in November with special activities throughout the month and during Spirit Week.
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.
