A weekly newsletter from the Kingsley Administrative Team
January 6, 2023
It was wonderful to return to school and have our hallways filled with the energy of our students. We have enjoyed hearing stories about their winter break.
We have started our benchmark testing this week and will continue through January 20th, when the testing window closes.
Have a great weekend,
Chuck Brewster & Eleni Gajewski
Kingsley's Behavior Expectations BINGO Boards
We are excited to start the BINGO Boards this week. Students who demonstrate the 4 Be's can be directed to add their names to the board over two weeks. Any adult in the building can "catch" a student and celebrate their choices by being added to the board. Mr. Brewster and Mrs. Gajewski will play BINGO and invite students whose names are in the chosen squares to the office for a prize. This cycle will repeat every two weeks.
While we will continue our Positive Office Referrals, we are excited that the BINGO Boards will reach a wide group of children who deserve recognition for going above and beyond. Please ask your child about the assembly, the 4 Be's, and the BINGO Board.

Board Game Club ~1st and 2nd Grades
The club will run every Tuesday from January 10th to February 14th (no meeting on February 7th) from 3:00-3:45pm, hosted by Mrs. Hannigan.
We will spend time each week learning and playing new games with peers. Students are welcome to bring a favorite game from home or they can choose from the many games that will be available to them. We will make new friends, practice our problem-solving skills, and have fun! If interested, keep an eye out for a flyer that will be sent home the week of December 12th. Please fill it out and return it to your child's homeroom teacher.
Future dates and information are to come for grades third through sixth.

Parking During Arrival and Dismissal
As a reminder, the parking lot is closed during arrival and dismissal. This allows district buses and vans to complete their routes. Also, for the safety of students, we do not want them walking through the parking lot with moving vehicles.
These procedures allow for the safety of our students and neighbors. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
