Announcements & News

  • Over the past few years, the North Kirkwood Middle School (NKMS) PTO was working toward fundraising to construct an outdoor pavilion on the campus of NKMS. The PTO raised $25,000 toward the project but was several thousand dollars short of their fundraising goal. The Whitson family stepped in and made a $10,000 donation to the NKMS PTO to offset the monies needed to complete the project. With assistance from the District facilities department, the “Bulldog Pavilion” is now complete, and NKMS students and classes enjoy the additional space year-round.

  • Four KSD Schools Place in Annual Green Schools Quest

    The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC)-Missouri Gateway Chapter challenged public and private schools within the chapter’s territory (Missouri and Southern Illinois) to devise and implement, with the help of Green Mentors, the most creative, effective and no or low-cost sustainable practices for their schools. This year, over 3,000 students and 180 faculty and staff were directly involved in this year’s Green Schools Quest projects. The Kirkwood School District (KSD) had six schools participate: Kirkwood Early Childhood Center, Keysor Elementary School, Westchester Elementary School, Nipher Middle School, North Middle School and Kirkwood High School. The projects were judged and winners were announced at the 12th Annual Green School Event at the Missouri History Museum. KECC was announced as the winner of the elementary school category and Kirkwood High School was announced as the winner of the high school category. Nipher Middle School and North Kirkwood Middle School tied for the middle school category.

  • Dual-District Partnership Blooms with Plant a Library Program

    North Kirkwood Middle School (NKMS) has a school-wide focus on service learning. Teachers and students are challenged to lean in to an issue or initiative to foster change. The groups meet on a near monthly basis, and quarterly service-learning days are planned. One group at NKMS sought change with literacy awareness. Sixth grade students in the “Plant a Library” group learned that not every school in the St. Louis area had the resources for a comprehensive and diverse library collection. The students, led by teachers Karen Ambuehl and Jen Siegel, decided the goal of the group was to: "Help us pass on the seeds of literacy and watch the love of reading grow!"
