Superintendent Message

Dr. Michael J. Byrne, Superintendent

November 2015

This fall, I’ve been visiting our schools and am seeing first-hand the excitement and creativity taking place in our classrooms.  Our community is full of energetic and dedicated individuals who are committed to ensuring our students receive the best educational opportunities while attending our schools. It is truly a privilege to be a part of Kirby School District 140.

As a reminder, Parent/Teacher Conferences will be held in all elementary and middle schools on Monday, November 23 from 1:00 pm – 8:00 pm and on Tuesday, November 24 from 8:00 am – 3:00 pm. Conferences offer an opportunity to establish a cooperative home-school partnership with the common goal of helping your student learn and feel successful. These one to one meetings are a great way for you to ask questions and review your student’s academic, social, and behavioral progress in school. 

With the Thanksgiving holiday fast approaching, I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to the staff, parents, and community members who enthusiastically contribute so much to our District.  Great communities have great schools and we are so appreciative of your support. On behalf of Kirby School District 140 and the Board of Education, I would like to wish all of you a Happy Thanksgiving!  Enjoy!

Michael J. Byrne, Ed.D.
