Delta Woods Gatorvision students and elementary STRETCH students competed in the Kansas City ReelSpirit Film Competition by creating and producing their own videos.

The Blue Springs School District’s Board of Education was recently named a 2017 Magna Award winner at the NSBA's 2017 Annual Awards. For more than 20 years, the Magna Awards have recognized innovative school district programs supported by board governance. The Blue Springs Board of Education was honored for the Project ZAM (Zoo and Me) Program, which through a partnership with the Kansas City Zoo taught early childhood students about different zoo animals and provided kindergarten readiness skills. Congratulations to our outstanding school board.
