From the Principal:

Our students are doing a great job setting academic goals and working towards them each day in class. Please continue to ask about their goals and their progress towards meeting them. Research has shown that goal setting is a great way to increase achievement in students and to help them learn and grow. Please continue to read together each night to reinforce the skills they learn here at KME each day.

Diversity Talks

Here at KME, we love to celebrate the diverse cultures that make up our amazing campus. In the spirit of this, we are looking for students, community members, or parents who would like to share a piece of their culture with the students at KME. Specifically, read a story or a poem that recognizes the contributions of various groups/cultures that make up our school community. If you or your child are interested in creating a video in WeVideo (students have access to this through ClassLink), please complete this form and we will reach out to you. We look forward to featuring our own #kmekoalas when celebrating our diversity each month.
