North Glendale Family Update

March 28, 2021

Big picture

Welcome Back!

I hope the break from school, no matter how you spent it, was just what your family needed!

I had the opportunity to travel home to Wisconsin to see my Mom whom I have not seen since the start of the pandemic ~ LAST Spring Break. We were both recently vaccinated and felt like this was a safe plan. My siblings will follow suit later this month as we try to bring some normalcy back to my Mom. The isolation of the pandemic is the real deal for our most vulnerable.

4th quarter is NOTORIOUS for speeding by and this year looks to be no different!

Hang on tight, reach out with questions and enjoy the ride! :)


Friday April 2

All KSD kids will be ASYNCHRONOUS on Friday, April 2. A vaccine clinic has been set up for all KSD staff and we want to be sure everyone has the opportunity to go and get vaccinated!

Prop R

Did you know...

  • NG is the only elementary school in Kirkwood WITHOUT a safe and secure entryway?
  • Students with mobility challenges cannot enter through the front door of our school?
  • All of our adult restrooms require the adult to walk through a learning space?
  • Our beautiful building has been victim to spray painted graffiti multiple times this year alone?

All of these issues would be addressed through Prop R as Prop R includes these necessary improvements for North Glendale:

  • Safe and secure entrance
  • Accessibility to our building
  • Renovations for restrooms
  • Updated cameras and lighting outside

To hear more you can review a Power Hour with NG specific information HERE. Or, check out this quick video highlighting the safety updates specifically.

Please reach out if I can provide additional information as you prepare to vote in the April 6 election or check out the Prop R info page linked HERE.

Reminder: please limit checking your student out of school early.

NG PTO Community Building Trivia Night!

Registration is OPEN for this community building event!

Make plans to show off your grasp of random information at the 2021 NG Trivia Night.

This is not a fund raiser ~ just a time for NG adults to come together (virtually) and connect.

See this link to register.

Summer Adventure Update

Thank you for your patience exhibited as we have taken time to explore the possibility of offering Summer Adventure Programming for 2021. After engaging in much conversation and consideration, we will pause on offering Summer Adventure programming this upcoming summer. It is our plan to focus our energy on a deep examination of possibilities with regard to before and after school Adventure Club for the 2021-2022 school year. As we are able to make decisions regarding Adventure Club school year programming, we will be certain to keep you updated accordingly through communicating within your school specific communications and on our Adventure Club website.

Registration for 2021-2022!

Please continue to help spread the word that registration for ALL grades for next school year is happening NOW via this website. I know there are more future Superstars out there....

Summer School Options

The calendar has turned to March, and it’s hard to not peak ahead to spring break, fourth quarter, and even the summer months. This is also the time of year that we normally put final touches on plans for summer school.

Please visit our Summer School website to learn more about our expanded summer options for students.

Student and staff well being has been and will be central to our planning. Families will need time away this summer, and many will schedule vacations that have been on hold for months. We know this, and we appreciate this - just as we know and appreciate that many students have academic and social-emotional needs to be addressed. Our summer plans seek to balance the needs of students and staff, recognizing important work to be done while keeping wellness at the forefront of our thinking.
