Dear KES Families,
Good morning! Despite the recent challenges that the weather has brought upon our community, your children and the KES staff have persevered and maintained a sense of routine and normalcy while at school.
During the month of February, each grade celebrated Black History Month by recognizing important people and events, and discussing important related concepts.
I share this not only to keep you informed of content, but to highlight the ways in which the students are engaged in their learning experiences through a variety of literature and online resources, integrated and articulated curriculum, and ongoing celebration of diversity as part of a respectful and responsible learning community.
Important Dates for your calendar:
Monday, March 12th Parent Portal Opened for Elementary Progress Report #2

Lastly, the KES COMPACT Committee is working on an initiative to provide parents, staff and administration the information and tools needed to understand and proactively address the many issues facing our school community. We hope that you will be willing to complete a short survey which will be sent home through backpack mail on Thursday. This will help to determine how best to make this initiative one that is valuable.
Thank you for your continued support of our learning community,
We hope to see many of you at this morning's Principal Coffee and General PTO Meeting.
Take good care,
Cristy Harris, Principal and Kweon Stambaugh, Assistant Principal
