Winning mascot for Lexington Elementary designed by district IT Support Specialist (Photo) - 01/08/20

The winning design for the mascot of Kelso’s new state-of-the-art elementary school has been selected. Chris Erickson, IT Support Specialist for the district, submitted the chosen artwork for Lex, the Lexington Eagle.

“We are delighted to have the mascot designed by a member of our staff,” said Superintendent Mary Beth Tack. “Chris’ rendition of the Lexington Eagle is friendly, strong and confident—just like our students.”

In addition to Erickson’s computer skills, he is a very talented artist who draws every day.

The top three submissions for mascot design all came from employees of the district. In addition to Erickson, Megan Yarroll, 2nd grade teacher at Barnes, and Anita Caldwell from the maintenance department, also submitted artwork.

Kelso School District bolsters communication with new website and app - 01/03/20

On Monday, January 6, Kelso School District will launch a new website platform that includes an app for iPhone and Android smart phones, as well the ability to send push notifications, text messages, and robocalls.

“In our strategic planning as a district, one of our six goals is to have open and transparent communication with our parents and our community,” said Mary Beth Tack, Superintendent. “I’m excited to begin this new year by taking great strides in enhancing our communication.”

With this updated and enhanced platform built by Apptegy, the district will be able to share more of the good things happening in Kelso schools with greater ease and frequency; as well as being able to reach families much faster in the event of an emergency.

Once the new site goes live, the app will be available in Google Play and the Apple App Store by searching for Kelso School District. Other functions of the new platform, such as attendance calls, will be rolled out over the next few months.
