Update: 11:10 am January 19, 2022 The National Weather Service has predicted that our area will receive snow and/or sleet mixture this afternoon. The temperatures are predicted to drop below the freezing point between 3 and 5 pm. This is at peak of our travels home. To ensure that ALL of our school family makes it home safely, we are dismissing at 2 pm. Buses will run normal routes. There will be no after school care. If this changes your child's transportation home, please communicate any changes ASAP. We appreciate both your efforts and understanding as we work to be proactive about our family's safety.
January 19, 2022 Weather Update To ensure that all of our school family makes it home safely, there will be not after school care today, Tuesday, 1/19. Please call the office if any changes of transportation home need to be communicated. We continue to monitor the weather moving in. Safety of all of our school family is always our number one priority.
Good morning all, Even after an extra day of resting and to ourselves, germs (of all kinds) continue to hit our district. A few things for today: Any messages of sick kiddos or absentees, please send them directly to the office. (573.545.3357) Nurse Rongey and Dr. Burger are out of the office, so please direct communications to the office so that we can keep communication as efficient as possible. Like always, if your child is not feeling well, please keep them at home. We know that means a parent missing work, but this is what is best for not only your child to rest and recover, but best to keep all of our school family safe. We are working so hard to keep a balance of school well being and maintaining the flow of instruction. Thank you for your help Kelso C-7 Family!

Wow! What a great weekend to be a Falcon! The crowd turnout yesterday at the game was record breaking! Thank you to all who came out to support our teams yesterday! 💙💙💙 The score didn’t turn out like we wanted but the crowd definitely took the trophy! Falcons will be playing today at 1:15 pm at the Drury Gym at Notre Dame High School. The Hennecke Spaghetti Benefit is also today at Eisleben Church in Scott City from 11-2 pm. If there are any who would like to work the benefit, they could use help starting at 10:15 am. It’s shaping up to be another great day for our Kelso C-7 family!
Calling all Beta Club! We missed our meeting with the snow, but if anyone is available we’ve been asked to help tomorrow with the benefit for Jayden Hennecke. Help serving, cleaning tables, etc. is needed starting at 10:15 am at the Eisleben Lutheran Church at Scott City. All are invited and welcome to attend the benefit to one our families than could use some community support. Details of the event are on the image attached.

Its time for the annual Drury/Notre Dame Regional Jr. High Boys basketball tournament!! The Falcons will play their first game tomorrow (1/8) @ 4:30 pm in the Notre Dame High School Gym. Our Kelso C-7 cheerleaders are competing in the tournament, too! They’ll be judged during our 4:30 game Saturday for overall cheering, stunts, and crowd participation. In fact, crowd participation is a big part of their score. They will also perform a 2-minute routine at halftime for the first time, which will also be judged. They are up against seven other local squads for the tournament title of 1st or 2nd Place Best Cheer Squad. They would LOVE it and really appreciate it if you could yell and clap with them even harder than you have been and wear your Falcon blue/white/yellow! Good luck to all of Falcons teams!! 💙🏀📣💙
❄️No School Friday 1/7/22❄️ Kelso C-7 will not be in session Friday, 1/7/22. Our rural roads are still very hazardous, with little hope of warmer temperatures over night to thaw them. We will keep our families safe and warm tomorrow and see all of you on Monday!
❄️NO SCHOOL THURSDAY, 1/6/22❄️ In preparation for the winter weather moving in, there will be no school today, 1/6/22. With the current weather predictions, it is highly likely we will have unsafe travel conditions. As always the safety of our school family is our number one priority. There will be no virtual learning, hopefully just a bit more family fun. Enjoy the day and stay safe Kelso C-7 family.
This semester we are taking time to "spotlight" our amazing group of faculty and staff! First up, is Ms. Angel Toler. To help share the spotlight on them, feel free to share a favorite memory, thought, or just a shout-out to them in the social media comments.
Good morning Kelso C-7 family! We hope all of our families have had a great break. Our crew is extremely excited to have all of our students back in the building tomorrow and are ready to knock out another successful semester! One big task we will be tackling is a new District CSIP plan that aligns our work to the new state governing standards. The learning standards are the same, but Missouri has new MSIP standards. These are standards that guide districts. We will need your help and input along the way. Each month we will be sending out brief surveys that will provide our leadership team data to guide the creation of goals and actions for our future. This month we are tacking safety goals. There are two brief surveys. One is for Counselor Creech and the other is aligned to the MSIP safety standard. We appreciate your help and time. We can't wait to see our families tomorrow! 2 Survey Links (Please fill out both): https://forms.gle/PNBkQqa2Za3mtaYw5 https://forms.gle/i3kwPcZ1UCMA1ZUW6
📣📣 Shout out alert!! 📣📣 Before Christmas break the district had a surprise gift in the mail. Representative Jamie Burger gifted the district a Missouri state flag! Over the break Mr. Ted and Mr. Pete Poe have been working to adapt our flag pole to fit two flags. Today is the first day our district proudly flies both flags. Thank you Rep. Burger for your continued support for our Falcons and region! Thank you Mr. Ted and Mr. Poe for your ingenuity and efforts!
We hope all of our families had a merry Christmas! Just a few brief notes for the week: The district office will be open Monday and Tuesday from 3-5 for Board of Education candidate filings. Grades 5/6 girls will be having basketball practice Tuesday and Thursday 5:30-7:30. We know it’s the holidays and family time is always first, but any girls that are free can come to the St Lawrence gym. Enjoy the rest of the break all! See you next year! 😉
Good morning Kelso C7 family, On a day of fun and cheer we unfortunately have to talk about the fear of our society. Our district is aware of the most recent TickTock challenge. We will be prepared for the possible scenario and have been in touch with law-enforcement. We plan to continue our every day safety precautions with a heightened awareness of the possibility. I want our families to know that we do not take threats lightly and will do everything we can for the safety of our kids, as we do every day. This will not be posted to social media. We are communicating directly to our families to bring comfort. These kinds of social media trends are just that trends. By posting it to social media, more attention is drawn to it and it can plant seeds casing it to grow. Again we will work on a daily basis for the safety and well-being of our students. We appreciate all of your support and hope that today is a safe, fun and cheerful day for all of our school family. Dr. Burger
We are just a few short hours away from our Christmas Music Program!!
