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!
MINI CHEER CAMP DELAYED Good evening all, Due to an outbreak of illness, we believe its best to delay the mini cheer camp. We know our mini Falcons are extremely excited to show their spirit! We will find alternate dates to reschedule the camp and performance as soon as we can. We appreciate your understanding and flexibility as we work to keep our learning environment as healthy as possible. Thank you! Dr. Burger
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!
Happy Veterans Day to all veterans and their families. We are so grateful and proud of each of you. We can't wait to celebrate and honor our veterans today!
Dear Kelso C-7 Parents, We still need your help. Our district is reviewing our school improvement plan, where we take a look at the different areas of our district and look for things we are doing well, areas we need improvement, and planning for the future. Our district is taking part in a pilot of a state survey from the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education and the University of Missouri. The survey helps district measure the culture and climate through a series of brief questions. Students will also be participating in the survey to help us gauge our progress from their point of view. Once we collect all the data, we will analyze it and use it to help create our school improvement plan. Here is the parent link for the survey: https://missouri.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_eWDBrKoAtMm1TvM?RID=CGC_lJ2Y5IxXkyQ2QHB&Q_CHL=email The Deadline has been extended until November 11th.
