Kittredge Magnet Ranks #1 Again!
We are excited to announce that, once again, School Digger named KMS as the #1 elementary school in the state of Georgia with a score of 99.9! The GADOE released state-wide scores for all schools last week. KMS outperformed all other schools on 20 out of 24 indicators! We came in 2nd or 3rd on the remaining four indicators. Ranked indicators include percentage of students reading above grade level (100%), mean scale scores, percentage of students scoring at Level IV Distinguished and percentage of students scoring at Level III & IV combined. This outstanding performance is due to the dedication of our teachers, the hard work of our students, and the support of our parents. Kudos to all on a job well done!
Supporting Kittredge Magnet School
We are looking forward to a fantastic 2022-23 school year at Kittredge Magnet School!
The Cougar Fund of the KMS Foundation presents an opportunity for you and your family to support the education of our students with an annual financial donation. Your generosity provides funding for day-to-day activities and long-term investments to make our school and facility a conducive place to learn and to better reflect the amazing work our teachers and students are doing inside of the classrooms. This fund is THE ONLY fundraiser for our school, eliminating the need to sell wrapping paper or sponsor running laps to raise money.
We ask that all families contribute to The Cougar Fund before the start of the school year to ensure that we have the resources in our 2022-23 budget. Our goal is for 100% family participation and $100,000 in total donations.
We welcome any donation amount, please give the best you can. 100% of your donation goes directly to the school and is tax-deductible. You will find the donation levels and benefits here.
Any questions about the KMS Foundation and The Cougar Fund can be directed to Kristen Bryant at firstname.lastname@example.org.
3 Steps to Online Registration
It's that time again to check off the steps for registration at KMS. There are three items that must be checked off by Thursday, August 4th. Completing these three steps is your ticket to a successful Meet the Teacher Day on August 5th.
Step 1: Infinite Campus Annual Verification
This online-only process is required for all students and can be handled all from your computer, phone, or through the Campus Parent App. It can take up to 15 minutes to complete. You will update household phone numbers, emergency contacts and your media release permission (permission needed if you would like your child to be included in photos from our fantastic Kittredge field trips and music concerts!). If you do not have a Campus Parent account, please email our registrar, Judi Carlson, at email@example.com. Check out step-by-step instructions for additional information.
Step 2: The KMS Student Information Form
This form collects demographic information that is shared with our teachers for their class contact lists. It will take less than 5 minutes to complete. Click here to get started.
Step 3: Foundation Registration, School Supplies & The Cougar Fund
At the KMS Foundation website, returning families will log in (use the password help link if needed). New families will click the CREATE ACCOUNT button. Once logged in, click the Registration/Forms menu item to register with the KMS Foundation, choose your donation level to The Cougar Fund, and purchase a short list of required school supplies. This process will take just 5 to 10 minutes.
Be sure to complete all 3 steps above by August 4th!
Meet the Teacher Day
KMS Meet the Teacher Day - Friday, August 5th, 8:00am to 11:00am
Meet the Teacher Day is a drop-in event that takes about 30 minutes to complete. You should complete the "3 Steps to Online Registration" above as your ticket to enter Meet the Teacher Day. You will meet your child's homeroom teacher, walk the building and complete a variety of tasks while at KMS and everyone should attend. Detailed information for Meet the Teacher Day will be sent no later than August 1st.
First Day of School - August 8th
The countdown is on! Don’t forget that summer homework and supply list shopping. Now is a good time to start going to bed and getting up earlier. Check that shoes and school clothes fit. Find those lunchboxes and get your lunch application or meal plan ready! Make your transportation plans or find a carpool. We will send a complete, first day preparedness checklist next week. We can't wait to welcome everyone back to the building!
See you soon!
Dr. Neely, Principal
Kittredge Magnet School for High Achievers
