June 2023 Newsletter
June 1, 2023
Hello KRMS families,
As we enter into the last two weeks of the school year next week, I wanted to reach out and thank the faculty, staff, families, and students for the opportunity to work together this year. I feel so fortunate to have had the opportunity to be in a leadership role within our communities and work with such incredible people.
Our last KRMS school dance will be held on Friday June 2nd from 6:00-8:30 pm in our school gym. We have heard that some students think it is just for the 8th grade and this is not true. This is a dance for all middle school students - 7th and 8th. A reminder that the cost is $5.00. Only students who have been in attendance the day of the dance are permitted to attend. Students may bring a guest only if the guest is a 7th or 8th grader and the KRMS students have obtained permission from the administration (forms available in the office) at least 24 hours before the day of the dance. Students are not allowed to leave a dance early unless previously arranged. Administration may prohibit attendance at dances or extracurricular activities due to misbehavior. Parents, please pick up promptly. Students are expected to follow the KRMS Dress Code. Drinks and snacks can be purchased. There is transportation provided to and from the dance. There is a $2.00 for each way that must be paid when you arrive and leave the dance. The Ossipee bus stops at the Ossipee Town Hall at approximately 5:30 PM and at Court House Square in Ossipee at 5:40 PM. The New Durham bus leaves from the New Durham School at 5:30 PM.
As we wrap up this year, there are a few other important dates to remember. Our 8th graders will be heading to Canobie Lake on June 14th. As I have previously mentioned, over the last couple of years, we have not hosted a formal "promotion" for the 8th grade. We have shifted to providing opportunities for the students to celebrate with school activities with their peers. On Monday June 19th, there will be an award assembly for the 8th grade. Parents of students receiving awards will be notified. After the assembly, 8th grade students will participate in some organized fun activities and a BBQ. Tuesday June 20th is our last day of school and it is a half day with a noon time dismissal.
Upcoming 7th and 8th graders will receive their team placements within the first couple of weeks in August. Those will most likely come either via mail or email, so please be on the lookout for those.
I have greatly appreciated your support and collaboration this year. If there is anything that I can assist you or your child with, please reach out to me directly. I wish our 8th graders a strong transition into their high school years and our 7th graders a confident transition into 8th grade.

REGISTRATION FOR FALL (2023) KRMS SPORTS
How Do I Register My Child(ren) for Sports at Kingswood?
Download and review or review online - the Athletic Handbook for Students Athletes & Parents 2022-2023. Both can be found in the "Inside Athletics" menu directly on the www.kingswoodathletics.org home page.
Visit: www.familyid.com, in the top right hand corner of the FamilyID website, click on “CREATE ACCOUNT” to create a FamilyID account. (FYI: after registering for a FamilyID account you will still need to sign up for your child’s sport of choice!)
Once your account is created (you never have to create another one!); click the “Find a Program” menu button on the FamilyID home page.
On the next page type “Kingswood” into the search box and click the “Find” button.
This will take you to a featured organization page, where you will see “Kingswood Department of Athletics” click on this blue lettering and voila! You are at our FamilyID page!
Scroll to mid-page and click on the program you are ready to register for!
On the next page, scroll to mid-page and click the “REGISTER NOW” button.
Complete the FamilyID registration and everything is routed to the Athletic Department--no forms to print out!
The only thing you owe to the athletic department on the first day of tryouts would possibly be an up to date physical.
*Please note that failure to register online will postpone an athlete’s eligibility at both KRMS
