Military Prep Academy Service Learning Project

Our JROTC Battalion is doing a Service Learning Project. This year we have partnered/are working with “Redwood School” whose mission is: to guide children and adults with severe and multiple disabilities to achieve independence and reach their highest potential throughout their lives, by providing enriching educational, therapeutic, and vocational services.

 “For over 63 years, Redwood has been a trusted resource for services in the Northern Kentucky region for children and adults with disabilities. The Redwood Express is Redwood's signature annual fundraiser, which transports attendees to a new destination every year. All proceeds from this event support Redwood’s programs to guide children and adults with disabilities to achieve independence and reach their highest potential."

Here's your chance to leave your mark and purchase your very own personalized "brick" on Redwood's yellow brick road mural which will be on display at the 2017 Redwood Express: The Emerald City on Friday, March 3, 2017; Buy one or buy a ton! Purchase one (1) for $10 or three (3) for $25; and have your name grace each purchase you make.

How can you make your way to The Emerald City without taking a trip down the yellow brick road?

Each of these has a slightly different procedure and deadline.

KCSD Inclement Weather Policy

By Terri Cox-Cruey, Ed. D., Superintendent of Kenton County Schools

The winter can be challenging to our instructional rhythm and overall school operations. It is particularly frustrating when events, scheduled well in advance, have to be canceled or postponed. While scheduling and rescheduling events during inclement weather is challenging, our current policy is to work with each school based on their circumstances to make sure the activity takes place for our students. Positive, proactive communication is necessary for all participants as we work together to disseminate information district-wide. I want to take this time to review how decisions are made when weather takes precedent.

Congratulations to Hunter Blair!  He won the 2016 Yes I Can! Award in the area of Self Advocacy.
