Kirkwood Students Begin School Year in New Learning Environments

All Keysor, North Glendale and Robinson elementary school students were able to attend their home school for the first time since the 1992-1993 school year.

The following article was submitted by the Kirkwood School District.

Tuesday marked the first day of school for students in the Kirkwood School District. Many students began their day in new learning environments, including kindergarteners at Keysor, North Glendale and Robinson Elementary schools. 

Thanks to Kirkwood School District voters that approved Proposition 1 in November 2010, kindergarten classroom additions were built at Keysor, North Glendale and Robinson.

The additions allowed all Keysor, North Glendale and Robinson children to attend kindergarten in their home school for the first time since the 1992-93 school year. Because of space limitations, Keysor kindergartners began attending Westchester Elementary School for their kindergarten year and North Glendale kindergarten students started attending Tillman Elementary School in the 1993-94 school year. In following years, Robinson also had the need to send some kindergarten students to Westchester.

Additional projects funded from the sale of Prop 1 bonds include new science classrooms at North and Nipher Middle Schools; new gyms, multipurpose rooms and cafeterias at Keysor, North Glendale and Robinson Elementary schools and improved security and traffic flow at elementary schools.
