The Katonah-Lewisboro Learning Commitment
In the KLSD, we will strive to create learning experiences for all students that are engaging, relevant, and take place in an active learning environment.
Dress up like a character from one of your favorite books. Don't forget to take and submit pictures!
The focus will be on the latest guidance to schools from the CDC, developments in our region, and options for return to more full-time schooling.
As with past events, it will be most helpful to receive your questions in advance. You can submit them to email@example.com.
I will share the latest information we have and address as many of your question as possible.

We invite you to visit the District's Website (klschools.org) and learn about the important work related to Equity and Racial Justice taking place in KLSD.

Our 5th graders engaged in diversity workshops led by the JJHS student members of the A World of Difference (AWOD) club, supervised by KES Social Worker, Jessica Fulton. You can find this information in the "Newsworthy" section.
In next month's family letter, we will share information about the specific teaching and learning taking place at KES for students, faculty and administration related to diversity, equity and inclusion as well as Social-Emotional Wellness.
