August 2019 Edition
Is it already August?! Summer 2019 certainly went by quickly but we are ready for a wonderful year to begin at GW! I am looking forward to meeting you at our Open House on August 22 from 3-5 p.m. There will be a meet and greet at 3:15 in the gym where you can learn details about this upcoming school year. Registration will be on August 5 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the KMS gym. Our online registration system is ready to use now if you can't make it that day. If you need assistance, please contact the main office. The first day of school will be August 23, 2019.
New to KCSD elementary schools this year is PikMyKid, a program that will increase safety, convenience, and efficiency during school dismissal. This is a secure application for parents to notify the school if their student will ride the bus, be picked up by car, walk home from school, and designate other adults for pick up. Please watch this video, download the app on your smartphone and register your information. More details will be available at registration and during Open House on August 22.
I encourage you to be very involved in your student's education. Throughout the year there will be several opportunities for you to join your student in their classroom or at school events. Research has proven there is higher student achievement when strong family-school partnerships exist. The foundation of these partnerships is trust that is built on the common interest of what is best for our students. The staff at GW have a clear vision for the success of EVERY STUDENT, EVERY DAY. Working together and building relationships with our students and their families helps our vision become reality. If you have any concerns regarding your child's progress, please reach out to their teacher or myself. Together we will ensure their learning leads to future success.
Yours in education,
Mrs. Heather Davis
