North Glendale Family Update

September 13, 2020

Good morning!

I hope your NG kiddo has had a chance to check out library books! The response to our online check out and pavilion pick up has been OUTSTANDING ~ we checked out over 700 books in the first 3 pick up days!


If your student does check out books, PLEASE don't forget to come pick them up on the next pick up day. It is a lot of heavy lifting to bring books back and forth from the library to the pavilion, so your help is appreciated.


Have a great week and hope to see everyone at PTO on Tuesday!

Jennifer

PTO Meeting: September 15 ~ ALL ARE WELCOME!

Please join us for the first PTO meeting of the year on Tuesday, September 15 from 6:30 - 7:30 via Zoom. During the meeting we will be introducing the PTO executive board, key school resources and the PTO budget, as well as talk about how the PTO supports the school and how you can get involved.


We are lucky to have fellow NG parent and Nipher teacher, Jennifer Sievers, join us to share strategies for managing virtual learning and balancing personal, school and family needs during this unique time. We will also have some school resources on hand to answer your questions.


Please link here to view Tuesday’s agenda, and plan to join us via this Zoom link. Please contact Colleen Wolf and Lisa Nieman (Northglendalepto@gmail.com) if there are any questions you would like answered during the meeting. Thanks and we look forward to seeing you then!

KSD NOW – Nutrition on the Weekends

KSD NOW – Nutrition on the Weekends – is a program that provides bags of food on the weekends during the school year for students in Kirkwood School District experiencing food insecurity.


Within the Kirkwood School District community, there are children who only have access to nutritious meals during the school day. In fact, about 12% of students qualify for free and reduced lunch – equating to over 700 students who are experiencing some level of food insecurity. Recognizing the hunger gap, Kirkwood School District staff members and parents have joined together to create KSD NOW to help address this need. Students in EVERY Kirkwood School District school receive support through KSD NOW.



The concept is simple: Children in Kirkwood School District at risk of weekend hunger receive a box of food that is nutritious, child-friendly, nonperishable, and easy to eat. The food provided in the boxes provides options for two breakfasts, two lunches, three dinners, and snacks for each weekend of the month.

Glory Run/Walk Virtual Marathon

Kirkwood Teachers of Color (KTOC) in collaboration with the Kirkwood School District Foundation (KSDF), are hosting the "Glory Virtual Run/Walk Marathon". Proceeds from this event will establish a fund that will award annual scholarships to Kirkwood students of color.

The virtual marathon starts October 1, 2020. This is your chance to run or walk a full marathon over the course of 31 days in October while supporting a great cause! Participants may run/walk 26.2 miles, or bike 100 miles.

Participants will receive the long-sleeved t-shirt shown and a decal. You can download the free Strava app or this printable calendar to help track your progress, and/or join our Facebook Event The Glory Run/Walk Virtual Marathon , where you can share your progress and/or photos with others on the same journey!

If you decide you would like the shirt and decal, but would rather sit this one out, we have a Couch Potato option as well: visit our Kirkwood School District Foundation donation website to make a donation.
