Kansas City Kansas Public Schools was awarded a five-year Head Start grant this past summer. KSSB is pleased to partner with District 500 by welcoming two Head Start classrooms into our school community. We anticipate approximately 35 students will be participating in the program as part of two full-day classrooms. Head Start staff and students began on August 12th, and are just beginning to settle in. Students share in the use of our facilities (gym, track, wrestling room, cafeteria, etc.) and we believe this shared venture will present valuable learning opportunities for both KSSB and Head Start students. The presence of so many bright, energetic three and four year old students will bring additional vitality to our campus.
