KES Newsletter September 16, 2022

September 16, 2022

Dear KES Families,

I hope you are all well on this beautiful late summer day. Today marks the end of the first full week of school, and I’m so proud to say how well the children have settled in and what a great job they are doing. Many of the little ones are excited to be eating at Sharkbites, the KES Cafe’ for the first time. We have now had two Evacuation Drills and all of our students have done and exceptional job. Half of our Pre-K population had their vision and hearing screenings today, and they all did a great job helping make the process go smoothly. 

It was so nice to see so many parents at the first KEPTA meeting of the year. I can't remember when there has been such a turn-out. KEPTA is one of the best ways to participate in your child’s education and this year they plan to offer meetings both during the day, and in the evening. The next meeting is on October 7th at 8:30am. We are bringing back the KES Ice Cream Social from 4:00-6:00 PM, Thursday, September 22nd, and KEPTA plans to help organize our Spaghetti Supper for Honor Flight Maine later in the fall. Over the years, KES has sent four local WWII veterans and one local Korean War veteran to see their memorials in Washington D.C on Honor Flight. We want to continue this great work for a great organization, so be on the lookout for information about the Spaghetti Supper in the coming weeks.

I am excited to announce that we can begin having Volunteers in our classrooms again. Teachers at each grade level are currently working on what that will look like, so opportunities to volunteer will be shared through your child’s teacher’s newsletter. Other forms of volunteerism, such as Foster Grandparents the Barbara Bush Foundation’s “Read Squad” (Formerly known as Teen Trendsetters) will begin in a few weeks, live for the first time since the 2019-2020 school year.

Just a gentle reminder that pocket knives and jack knives are not allowed to be brought to school. If staff become aware of a student with a knife, no matter how small, the knife will have to be taken and held in the KES office until parents or care-givers can come retrieve it. Thank you for your help with reinforcing this rule

Finally, please see the Newsletter  from our wonderful Art Teacher, Miss Allard.

Have an amazing weekend.

Yours in Education,
Mr. Quinn
