Good morning Falcon Families!! Here is our visual schedule for the week! We are looking at a possible school closures this for both weather and a utility repair. Liberty Utilities needs to make an upgrade to our gas line that would leave us without heat, hot water, or the ability to cook lunch. With the current temperatures, the lack of heat is not safe or conducive to the learning environment for our kiddos. We are working the with the utility company to establish a repair date and will let our families know as soon as possible. In the case of a closing, parents will be notified by our app, social media, and KFVS 12. With that being said, if you have not downloaded the app and allowed for push notifications, it’s not too late! Go to the app store and search “Kelso C-7” to find it. It’s a free download. Here is a link to YouTube tutorial to help. I will pass along the repair dates as soon as we are notified and we will keep our eye on the weather. Have a great week Kelso C-7 Family!

Week of 1/23
Possible Storms/Rain at Dismissal 1/18/23 It is looking like we may experience some inclement weather during dismissal. If the case of heavy rain or stormy conditions our dismissal procedures will transition a little. Families in the car rider line will continue to line up in two rows around the parking lot and two lines in the middle if needed. School employees will bring students out three cars/families at a time starting with the outer row. When the three cars are loaded, a school employee will motion for those cars to go and the following cars to pull forward. We will load and dismiss the outer row (closest to the building), the inner row, and then the middle row. There is no real change to how our families line up; the change will be how students are brought out, causing a little longer wait. We appreciate your help keeping our students safe through all conditions.

Mini Cheer Camp Rescheduled AND 1st Ever Inter Squad Scrimmage Thank you all for your understanding and flexibility as we work to keep our students healthy. It's a huge task during this time of year! Our cheer and basketball coaches have worked together to not only reschedule the mini cheer camp but host its first ever inter squad scrimmage game. Mini cheer leaders will be showing their spirit and learning from our own Falcon Cheer Squad on Monday, 12/5 and Tuesday, 12/6 from 5:30 - 7:30 at the St. Lawrence Gym. We do ask parents to drop off their mini cheerleaders promptly at 5:30 and pick up at 7:30 pm. Our boys basketball will be practicing until 5:30, so we ask that you curb the mini's excitement by keeping them in your vehicle until as close as possible to start time. Wednesday, 12/7 will be the grand finale. Starting at 6 pm at the St. Lawrence Gym, the boys basketball teams will battle it out bragging rights in the first ever inter squad scrimmage game. Falcon v. Falcon. Our mini cheerleaders and Falcon Squad will be performing a Holiday treat at halftime! Mini Cheerleaders are asked to wear a Santa or holiday hat. All of our spectators are invited to join the holiday fun as well! Admission is a canned food item or a cash donation to the Jesus in Disguise Food Pantry in Benton. Come join us for fun, holiday spirit filled evening for all!

ATTENTION CHEER CAMP FAMILIES--SCHEDULE CHANGE! We are so excited to have such a great turnout for our 2022 Falcons Cheerleading Camp. To make sure your mini cheerleader gets the most out of camp and this experience, we are breaking up the performance times into two nights. We also want to ensure families and players have enough space inside the St. Lawrence gym with the larger crowd of awesome Falcons supporters. PLEASE SHARE this post. Camp is the same: Tuesday, 11/29 and Wednesday, 11/30 from 5 to 7 pm at the St. Lawrence gym. Snacks will be provided both camp nights. Thursday, 12/1: ONLY grades preK-Third will perform, and this will be at the START of the 6 pm game. Please arrive no later than 5:45. Families may leave after the performance, if they wish. We understand the younger students have earlier bedtimes and nighttime routines. Friday, 12/2: ONLY grades 4-5 will perform and due to their smaller numbers, only they will be allowed to cheer on the sidelines with our cheerleaders for the first and second quarters of the JV game at 6. We are so excited and can't wait to share cheerleading with this large group of awesome mini cheerleaders. Thanks for your understanding and support!

Community and Traditions These two words are foundations of Kelso C-7 School. We do not run short of either. Today is not a serious tradition, but a tradition that our students love. If I’m honest, I do too. It's Mr. Cluckle’s birthday. Who’s Mr. Cluckles? It's the chicken statue in the picture. A statue. You read that right. It's a silly tradition that these ladies have not only carried on for YEARS, but now have recruited others to join in their fun. What started with our 83 students in the original building has now grown to 250 jellos eggs, dirt cake cups, tootsie rolls, and candy corn for any and all to enjoy. The heart that drives the tradition and the community support behind all of this hoopla is what makes Mr. Cluckle’s birthday a day to anticipate and remember. Like so many events for our students, its not about the eggs, the desserts, or the decorations, it's about the joy it brings to our entire school family. These ladies love our kids BIG and love our community. Thanks to these ladies for carrying on a simple, fun tradition but all of you that work to make Kelso C-7 a great place to learn and grow together. We are thankful for each and every one of you!
