Transportation Reminders

Just a reminder, if your student is a car rider, he/she should be picked up by 2:50 pm. If he/she is not picked up by 3:00 pm, they will be sent to Kid Power, our after school child care program. There will be a drop-in rate of $12 per student.


Also, if your student is a bus rider, please be at the bus stop on time for pick up. Tagged students (CD, K, 1st) will be brought back to the school. Students brought back will be sent to Kid Power at a drop-in rate of $12 per student. When students are brought back, this delays the bus route not only for any remaining KES bus riders, but also for the middle and high school riders of later routes.

November is National American Diabetes Month

National Diabetes Awareness Month in November is a special time to raise awareness of the difference between Type 1 diabetes and Type 2 diabetes. Type 1 diabetes occurs at every age, in people of every race, and of every shape and size. In type 1 diabetes, the body does not produce insulin. The body breaks down the carbohydrates you eat into blood sugar that it uses for energy—and insulin is a hormone that the body needs to get glucose from the bloodstream into the cells of the body. With the help of insulin therapy and other treatments, everyone can learn to manage their condition and live long healthy lives. Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes. It means that your body doesn’t use insulin properly. While some people can control their blood sugar levels with healthy eating and exercise, others may need medication or insulin to help manage it.

October Life skill for the month- “FRIENDSHIP”

Friendship is to make and keep a friend through mutual trust and caring.


During the month of October, please talk to your children about ways to make and keep friends by recognizing the qualities of a friend, and practice communication skills that improve peer interactions. It is also important for children to learn the value of treating people respectfully regardless of appearance, race, national origin, disability, social status, etc. Teaching children to be mindful of the feelings of others, and how to recognize, refuse, and report unfriendly behavior will help them to be a good friend. Please help your child learn to recognize signs of unfriendly behavior.


Signs of Unfriendly Behavior

-Gossiping

-Spreading rumors

-Bossiness

-Stealing

-Embarrassing others

-Frightening others


If your child reports any of these behaviors to you, please encourage them to speak with their teacher, myself, or administration. KES has a no bullying policy.


Please let me know if there is anything I can do for your child this year.
