Weekly Update

May 1, 2016

KCS Staff,

This week is Teacher Appreciation week. I cannot say enough about the level of dedication demonstrated on a daily basis by our staff. Although there are many different teaching styles in the building, each one is effective and student focused. I feel very fortunate to be able to work with each and every one of you to provide a quality education to each of our students.

Thank you for all you do.


Visitors to KCS this week

Paula Hart, the President/CEO of Volunteers of America (VOA) and Minnesota Department of Education Commissioner Brenda Cassellius will be attending the Cinco de Mayo event.
