Parent Update

Hello KRMS families,

We are approaching the end of the school year rather quickly. With just over 6 weeks of the school year left I wanted to reach out with some important dates and information about upcoming events. More information about each items discussed can be found below in this newsletter.

Our 4th quarter incentive program has been going well. Many students have earned raffle prizes, including Amazon gift cards, "Knights Kash" to our school store and bottles of the coveted drink Prime!. In addition, before vacation, students earned their first all school "reward" and were allowed one day to switch to an advisory of their choice. We hope that this will continue to motivate students to make respectful choices. We are very close to earning our second all school "reward" where students have asked teachers to wear a wig or have crazy hair for the day! Stay turned for more updates throughout the quarter.

NH SAS testing will be conducted this month. State assessments are an important part of a student’s core educational program. They provide an evaluation of student mastery of content and skills in various academic areas, serve as one tool for measuring the degree to which students are on track to graduate high school and be college- and career-ready, and help inform future instruction in the classroom. KRMS students will be taking the following assessments:

  • Grades 7 and 8 - Math - Wednesday 5/10

  • Grades 7 and 8 - Reading - Friday 5/12

  • Grades 7 and 8 - Writing - Wednesday 5/17

  • Grade 8 Only - Science - Friday 5/19

KRMS will be hosting a school dance on Friday, June 2nd.We work with the transportation department and for a small fee, busses pick up at New Durham Elementary School, Ossipee Elementary School, and Court House Square in Ossipee. Drop off after the dance at the same locations are also provided. The cost each way is $2 and the entry to the dance is $5 per person. Snacks and drinks are available for additional costs.

Over the last couple of years, we have not had a formal "promotion" for the 8th grade. We have shifted to providing opportunities for the students to be celebrated with school activities with their peers (a permission slip to Canobie Lake Park will be sent home soon) and an informal award assembly for the 8th graders that will occur during the school day on June 19th.

This is the time of year that can be a challenge for many children with a new transition coming up. We put many opportunities in place to support children with these transitions, however, behaviors can at times impact a student's access to extra opportunities, including the dance and potential field trips. Phones continue to be expected to be off and away (in a locker) during the school day and any and all support with this is greatly appreciated. As with distracted driving, phones create a distracted learning environment. Your assistance can also be helpful in supporting our district's dress code, especially with the warmer weather ahead.

We greatly appreciate your support and collaboration. If there is anything that I can assist you or your child with, please reach out to me directly.

How Do I Register My Child(ren) for Sports at Kingswood?

  1. Visit:

  2. Download and review or review online - the Athletic Handbook for Students Athletes & Parents 2023-2024. Both can be found in the "Inside Athletics" menu directly on the home page.

  3. Visit:, in the top right hand corner of the FamilyID website, click on “CREATE ACCOUNT” to create a FamilyID account. (FYI: after registering for a FamilyID account you will still need to sign up for your child’s sport of choice!)

  4. Once your account is created (you never have to create another one!); click the “Find a Program” menu button on the FamilyID home page.

  5. On the next page type “Kingswood” into the search box and click the “Find” button.

  6. This will take you to a featured organization page, where you will see “Kingswood Department of Athletics” click on this blue lettering and voila! You are at our FamilyID page!

  7. Scroll to mid-page and click on the program you are ready to register for!

  8. On the next page, scroll to mid-page and click the “REGISTER NOW” button.

  9. Complete the FamilyID registration and everything is routed to the Athletic Department--no forms to print out!

  10. The only thing you owe to the athletic department on the first day of tryouts would possibly be an up to date physical.

*Please note that failure to register online will postpone an athlete’s eligibility at both KRMS
