Good afternoon, KES Families.
Welcome back from the holiday weekend. We hope you plan to spend the morning with us tomorrow, Wednesday, January 17th, weather permitting! At 9:15 am is the Principal’s Coffee (BYOC) which is immediately followed at 9:30 am by the PTO General Membership meeting. John Jay High School students from the club ‘A World of Difference’ will be joining us at the PTO meeting to discuss the 2nd Annual Diversity Day program. They will be leading us through a stimulating activity about stereotypes. (Both meetings will be cancelled if tomorrow is a delayed opening or school closing.)
On Wednesday, January 31st, the John Jay High School students from the club “A World of Difference’ will return to talk about diversity at our monthly school-wide Sharing Assembly. They will share what diversity means and how we celebrate differences through a variety of activities and stories. Teachers in grades K-4 will be provided with optional follow-up activities for the classrooms while our fifth graders will participate in workshops throughout the day. At these workshops, the HS students will lead the 5th graders in small group activities focused on diversity. This program is being facilitated and supervised by our Social Worker, Jessica Fulton.
