Spring Book Fair Time!

Our Spring Book fair runs from March 1-12, online of course!

Use this online book fair scavenger hunt to engage your kids in the catalog and learn more about what books they know, like and want to read. As it is also Read Across America week, send us pictures of your NG Superstar reading!

Scholastic has added a pretty cool feature to the virtual book fair ~ teacher virtual wallets. Parents can contribute money to teacher e-wallets and teachers will use those funds to purchase books for their classrooms. Any amount not spent during the book fair will roll over into the overall book fair profits and will be used to purchase books for school.

We appreciate your support of our Scholastic Book Fair.

Zoom Updates

In response to recent updates as Zoom continues to improve security and privacy, KSD has shifted to a default setting for all Zoom meetings scheduled by staff of “Only Authenticated Users can join meetings.” In KSD, Authenticated Users are defined as those:

1) signing in with their Kirkwood (Google) account and

2) doing so on KSD managed devices.

With these parameters in place:

  • users accounts outside of the KSD organization will be unable to join Zoom meetings;

  • KSD staff or students on personal devices will be unable to join KSD Zoom Meetings with this setting in place.

  • KSD staff retains the ability to deselect this option when necessary to allow users into KSD Zoom meetings that are outside of the organization (e.g., guest speakers, partner schools, etc.)
