Message from Mrs. Carey!

Dear KES families,


Hope this finds you well! Don't forget that tomorrow is "60's" day (about 60 days of school left!) We look forward to seeing our students sporting their "60's" gear! Additionally, it is a 1/2 day for all students and Progress Reporting, completion for our staff.


Shout-out to our very own MRS. BORGA!!! She is ONE of FIVE finalists for Queen Anne's County Public School, "Teacher of the Year"! Well deserved and we look forward to celebrating her in the near future and finding out if she is the top choice!!


We love the support from our KES families and THANK YOU for your help! It is quite obvious that our families have reminded our students about making good choices, displaying great manners, and showing positive behaviors at home, school, and out in the community.
