Principal's Message

Dear Members of the KMS Community,


On Thursday, October 15, the Commissioner of Education, Angélica Infante-Green, visited KMS to meet teachers and students to show her support as we continue our mission. We had the opportunity to highlight many of the great things that are happening here at KMS and Commissioner Infante-Green was able to spend a good amount of time chatting with teachers and students. We were honored to have her here along with Superintendent Dr. Jonathan Brice, School Committee Chairperson Erin Schofield, and School Committee member John Saviano.


Now that we have reached the half way point of the first quarter, I would like to send another reminder to check the parent portal in ASPEN to review your child's progress. Please contact your child's teacher directly with any questions. The first quarter will end on Friday, November 13.


Monday, October 19, is a statewide PD day, meaning that all school districts across the state will be involved in professional learning. There are six PD days in our calendar added by the Rhode Island Department of Education: October 19, November 16, January 25, March 15, April 12, and May 17. Thursday, May 13 in a PD day for teachers in BWRSD, but students will have no classes on that day. Please refer to the notice below for more specifics.


Have a great weekend,

Dennis Morrell

Traveling Teachers

Our KMS hallways are much quieter these days with students staying in their stable pods and teachers traveling room to room. You'll find our teachers rolling down hallways with carts that contain their teaching materials.


Reopening guidelines have shifted many of our traditional rituals and routines. Our teachers are hard at work balancing all of the many shifts. We have witnessed lots of out of the box thinking like our traveling teacher carts.


Our teacher here at KMS go the extra mile to give students authentic learning experiences.
