Through our website, our community and our staff have access to information about the people and programs that make our schools great! Our employees are dedicated to serving the educational needs of our community’s children. From award winning schools to Hilanders’ pride, “We are Kelso!”
As I enter my first year as a member of the Kelso School District team, I look forward to observing and supporting the specific ways in which we help students pursue their learning and form their dreams. We are here to inspire, encourage, teach and nurture our student’s growth into citizens of our community – locally and around the world. Wherever they serve and lead, they will take with them the pride of our community.
It’s going to be a great year!
Superintendent Glenn Gelbrich

As the CCSS are being implemented in most states and the District, new aligned tests are being designed for students to start taking next year. Right now millions of students are taking field tests on these exams, and by many accounts, the questions are a lot more difficult than those on previous standardized tests. How much more difficult? Try and take this quick Math Quiz and find out.
HiCap screening of all second grade students has been completed. If your student had qualifying scores for further testing you would have received a letter in the mail this week. Your classroom teacher will have individual test results for your child. Should you have questions please contact J'aime Graff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
