KP Connection -Weekend Edition

August 29, 2015 - Awesome First Week

We're Back

This first 3 days of school were AWESOME! Our teachers have labored to provide the most welcoming experience possible for all students. I want to thank them for their amazing efforts in making the start of the year both pleasant and smooth.

As we partner with you, we want to share the learning and fun happening in our school. You can follow this via social media at the school's Twitter and Instagram accounts. In addition, our teachers are starting to use social media to showcase the learning occurring in their classrooms. If you aren't ready to connect in that way, you can access our Twitter feeds on our webpage as well as through the KP Connection.

To ensure that we are communicating with you in the way you find most helpful as a school, I'm requesting that you complete the survey included (click here). You child's team/teachers will also be sharing their communication methods to keep you aware and engaged in the learning happening.

Please know that I believe we are partners together in ensuring your child's academic and social/emotional success. Effective communication supports the health of this partnership. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us with any questions, concerns or comments. Staff and school accolades are always welcome. :-)

Your Partners in Education,

Joy K. Wright Justin Gusy Marc Kotler

School Start Times:

The first bell rings at 7:40am. Due to a lack of supervision, students are not permitted in the building prior to this time unless they have a schedule meeting with a staff member.

Morning Drop off:

For the safety of our students and to expedite bus arrivals, we are reminding parents/guardians to please drop off students in the circle at the Mohawk entrance at the back of the school. There will be adults there to usher them to their appropriate team area. Thank you.
