A weekly newsletter from the Kingsley Administrative Team
DECEMBER 9, 2022
On Friday, December 16th, we are celebrating this year by bringing all staff together for lunch. In order to do so, we are seeking volunteers to cover the lunch/recess supervision. Please see below for more information.
We are grateful to all who coordinated and attended the Kingsley Pancake Breakfast and Holiday Shop. It was a huge turnout and a lot of fun for all.
One of our final Playground Fundraisers is the McTeacher Night. Staff will be working at McDonald's this Wednesday, December 14th starting at 4:00pm. Please see the flyer below.
As a friendly reminder, when dropping students off in the carline, adults should stay in the vehicle as children exit on the sidewalk side. This keeps our students safe and expedites our carline process. Thank you for your cooperation.
Have a great weekend,
Chuck Brewster & Eleni Gajewski
Community-building and math workplaces in Mrs. McNeal's classroom.
Small groups with Mrs. Rasmussen means targeted learning. This is a schoolwide goal this year.
More targeted differentiated learning with Mrs. Ballestra.

Kingsley Playground: Last Call For Donations!
We would like to express our appreciation to the Playground Committee Members, Kingsley PTA, and DG58's Kevin Barto for their partnership in reaching our December 2022 fundraising goal for a new playground. These volunteers have worked tirelessly for over a year and we are thrilled to say that we have met our goal! The committee has received feedback from staff and students on the playground features and colors. Construction will begin in June after school is out.
It's not too late to donate!
- Will your company do a corporate match before the end of the year?
- Donations can be made at https://www.kingsleyplaystogether.org
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.
