Remarkable Teachers at Kilby Shores

Five teachers from Kilby Shores were honored recently with STAR awards for the first semester of 2017-2018.  Judges consider initiative, school spirit, creativity, commitment, and attitude to recognize those who are making a real difference in the lives of students.  A total of 15 staff members across the district — out of 69 nominees — were selected as top honorees for the Star Award recognition.

We have great things happening at Kilby Shores!
