Dear Kapowsin Families,
I wanted to reach out to share my well wishes for you and your families during this winter season. In this season, I often reflect on gratitude. There is so much to be thankful for here at Kapowsin Elementary! First, I want to extend a heartfelt thank you for the privilege of working with your children and as partners with each of you. I have very much enjoyed my first few months here as part of the community and have learned a lot! I have enjoyed teaming together to support your children. Throughout these cold months, family, togetherness, and kindness are so very important. I am grateful to you all. As a parent myself, I know that it is the most rewarding and sometimes most challenging of jobs. Often, they make us laugh, sometimes they make us cry, but always they make us think. Most of all, they make us better.
I also want to thank all of the staff, volunteers, and community members who make Kapowsin the community that it is. For example, we want to thank our fabulous PTA officers who have invested many hours and a lot of energy honoring our staff and designing exciting events for us all to enjoy. The impact of the PTA's efforts is evident in the positive atmosphere that permeates our school. The support you provide to our hardworking teachers is invaluable. Your commitment to ensuring they have the resources they need, both inside and outside the classroom, is a testament to your understanding of the vital role educators play in shaping the future. Thank you to everyone who contributes as part of the PTA and as volunteers. You make our school a place of light.
It is such a blessing to work as part of a staff team that has built relationships with our community and children and who are deeply invested in the children they serve. I want celebrate our educators as they invest wholeheartedly in our kids. They not only impart knowledge but also instill a sense of curiosity and a passion for learning. By holding high expectations, they challenge our students to reach new heights, fostering an environment where intellectual growth is not just encouraged but expected.
Thank you for allowing me to share my gratitude with you. My family and I will be thinking of all of you during this season. Thank you for welcoming me into the Kapowsin Family!
Thank you to our Graham Fire & Rescue Firefighters
"Our heartfelt gratitude to the crew of firefighters who came today to pass out coats to our students!! They were very kind and personable and made the children feel welcome and comfortable. They acted with speed and professionalism and made our kids very, very happy! (not to mention warm and cozy too!)
Thank you again for providing this wonderful service to children in need of warmth."

As our weather gets colder please send to school with your children warm winter clothing for playing outside at recess. Reminder to label items in case they get lost.
Also, this is a good time to think about sending with your student extra clothes in case if accidents, food spills, or weather related issues.
All PTA Events rely on volunteers, please consider signing up!
