Principal Update
Thanks for your recent support of the annual Right to Read week, Scholastic Book Fair and Spaghetti Dinner and dance! We had a busy, but enjoyable week! Thanks to everyone who participated.

Due to the winter weather this year, many are worried about extended school days. Currently, our last day of school for students remains May 29, 2014. Recently, Blizzard bags/folders were approved, and as a result, we will use this procedure to makeup the two additional snow days/closings. February 10, which was originally scheduled as a Professional Development Day for teachers and off day for students, was also used to make up a day. Information in regards to the Blizzard bags and assignments for the students to complete has been sent home, and your child will receive a grade for this work. Check with your child's teacher for more information.

We are busy preparing for the upcoming school year. If you have another child planning to attend Kilgour next year, please be sure to join us on March 27 for the Kindergarten roundup and schoolwide registration. We ask that all registrations are turned in by May 1 so we can properly prepare for the upcoming year with staffing and support services. Spread the word to your neighbors. As we plan for enrollment, we also are reviewing and preparing our programs and services for next year. Stay tuned for more info after Spring break.

If you have an idea or your company or business would like to partner with or donate to our school community, please contact me. It takes all of us to maintain our EXCELLENT school!

Enjoy the break and come back ready and refreshed to complete the rest of the 2013-2014 school year.

  • Dogs, dogs, dogs - Kilgour loves dogs. HOWEVER to be respectful of all members of our community, please be sure to keep dogs off school grounds from 8:00 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Please be sure to not leave dogs tied to railings or poles and left unsupervised. We want our community to be welcome to all and we need your help!
  • Parking lots - The parking lots are for STAFF only! We continue to have parents/guardians parking in the staff lots, preventing staff from parking, and/or dropping off or picking up children in the lots. We want to ensure safety for all members of our community. Please refrain from parking, pulling into or waiting in the lots.
