A note from our Principal:

Hello Kirkwood Families!

We are have put a lot of work in during the first month of school at Kirkwood. Our teachers and scholars have worked on building positive classroom communities, developed common expectations, worked on goal setting, and much more. Our playground renovations are almost complete, which is really exciting! Be sure to ask your scholar what they are learning about in class. Stay healthy and safe! #WeAreKirkwood
