Your Fundraising Dollars at Work!

Thank you so much for your support of our Fall Fundraiser. We have made our first purchase to support student achievement. At the teachers' request, we purchased the program IXL for Math for grades 3-5. IXL Math is a digital program that supports students with math fluency, skill specific activities all to build confidence in Math and improve student achievement. It helps students master essential skills at their own pace through interactive questions, built in support, and motivating rewards. It is personalized and has a diagnostic arena that teachers can assign to students to reteach, reinforce and practice specific skills as well. Both Klein On Campus and Klein Online students will access this program.

Thank you again for your continued support of Kuehnle. Your support with the fundraiser is directly impacting student learning. Stay tuned for more updates on how we are using funds raised to benefit student achievement.

Kuehnle Literacy, Arts, and Science Day for Kindergarten

On January 8, Kindergarten will participate in a variety of activities covering many areas such as reading, art, writing and science. We are excited about this unique day of learning. This will be for both KOL and KOC students. Literacy through the arts can increase students' reading, writing, and verbal expression skills by engaging in activities beyond the classroom. We will be utilizing other teachers and staff members to facilitate the day's learning while your child's teacher works in a supportive role periodically throughout the day. Students will still attend PE, Music, or Art on this day.
