Principal Talk

Hello King Families and Community,

We have kicked off another successful school year at King Elementary. The King staff and I are excited to work alongside you and your students as they learn and grow. The focus of our work is your student’s success, growth and development. At King, we are proud of our caring family atmosphere and strong academic program. We appreciate your efforts as a family and community in supporting the education of your children.

This includes making sure your kids are ready and present each and every school day.

The beginning of the school year serves as an opportunity for teachers to set the tone for the learning culture in the classroom. One tool we use school wide is the Social Contract. Classroom teachers facilitate dialogue with the students as they decide on a class contract focused on how students will treat and relate to each other and staff members. This Social Contract serves as the foundation for students owning and regulating their learning environment. Ask your student about how they "check" each other and hold each other accountable for the Social Contract.

We are excited for another successful school year! Thank you again for contributing to a great start!



Sincerely,

Treg Joslyn

Principal- King Elementary
