Kellond Elementary

October 2020

Hello Kellond Families,

It is so much fun to join in class zooms and see our children learning and laughing. This experience has certainly created a stronger community than ever before for our families and staff to join in the educational process. On Tuesday, October 6th, our TUSD Governing Board will provide us parameters for the second quarter. I am confident that whatever the board decides, our Cougar community will continue to find ways to support all of our children. Please enjoy the fall break starting October 9th and we look forward to seeing those smiling faces again on October 19th.

To celebrate our children and all their efforts, we are starting back up our Cougar Mondays. Children, and parents too if you want in on the action, can wear blue and yellow to show their school spirit every Monday. We will also start Fun Fridays after fall break. Classes will suggest a dress up day (hat day, color day, etc.) and one will be drawn and shared each week. Teachers and parents are encouraged to send in pictures for our newsletters. We also encourage you to send your teacher pictures of your child learning. Only students with permissions in ParentVue for media release will be shared on our newsletters and website.

Kellond is in the process of rewriting our vision statement and would like your feedback. A vision is a statement that describes our ideal state in the future given the efforts of our mission. Please see the draft below and click on the button for a quick feedback form.

We are so grateful for our amazing PTO andall their hard work. Did you know that being a part of PTO is absolutely free? There are no fees and you can visit one meeting or all of them. Information is always listed at the bottom of the newsletters, on our website, and on the Kellond PTO Facebook page. Consider joining our team today.

We are excited to congratulate the September 2020 Cougar of the Month recipients. Please see the list below. These students will also receive a certificate in the mail.

Be safe and take care,

Ms. Meneguin
