SHES students with Kingdom United Books

Spring Hill Elementary School kicked off their Kingdom United Program, a book program from the Kansas City Chiefs, on Friday, September 24, 2021. SHES was selected as one of twelve elementary schools for this year’s program. The first set of books that our Colts received focused on kindness and respect.

This is an exciting opportunity for the students of Spring Hill Elementary School, the district’s only Title I school, to receive four books to keep for themselves at no cost. The themes for each months’ books are Kindness and Respect in September, Female Empowerment in October, Ability in November, and Racial Diversity in December.

"Schools participating in the Kingdom United program are encouraged to dedicate at least 30 minutes per month to teaching their students about race, diversity, inclusion and acceptance. Each elementary school will receive complimentary, grade-level appropriate, diversity-themed books for each student, and the teachers will be provided with discussion questions and activities that can be utilized to reinforce the messages and themes in the books. Every grade level will have four unique books that will be taught during the school year, with the books specifically selected to help students appreciate the uniqueness of all people."
