The Synopsis: Kilgour’s bi-weekly newsletter is titled The Synopsis. It is full of important information about the school. It is sent to families via email.  To sign up for the email list, click on the Synopsis tab at the top of this page.

 

Master Calendar: A master calendar of school events is posted on the bulletin board in the main lobby and copies are available to take. The CPS school year calendar can also be located here.

 

Kilgour School Directory: The Kilgour School Directory is developed by a volunteer of the Kilgour PTA and printed by PNC Bank strictly for the exclusive use and benefit of the Kilgour School community. The Kilgour School Directory is not to be used for marketing or other mass/group promotions that extend beyond the immediate Kilgour School community. We ask that you respect the privacy of your fellow Kilgour families. Electronic copies of the directory are not distributed due to a greater likelihood of misuse of the information collected.

 

The Tuesday Envelope: Many teachers use the Tuesday Envelopes to send home important information from teachers and school staff. The Tuesday Envelopes are sent home weekly; however, check your child’s backpack daily for important information.

 

Concerns: Do not wait until a scheduled parent/teacher conference to discuss any school concerns with your child’s teacher. The sooner you share your concern, the better for your child. You should discuss your concerns with your child’s teacher before going to the Principal.
