WELCOME KAISER KNIGHTS!
Kaiser Elementary School is the home of the Kaiser Knights – noble in thought, word, and deed. Our mission is to build a “community of life-long learners.” In addition to our dedicated staff and bright students, Kaiser also is surrounded by a community of families that care deeply about the academic and life success of our students.
You will find that our expectations are high and that they are matched by our support in achieving them. It is our intention that when Kaiser students move up to intermediate and high school, they will be powerful thinkers with a strong knowledge base, skill set, sense of creativity, and commitment to community. In other words, Kaiser Knights are 21stcentury global citizens.
Of Parking Lots and Gratitude
You might imagine the scintillating topics principals discuss whenever they get together. One recurring theme is parking lot safety. We talk about our ongoing worries about those intense times just before and after the school day.
My confidence in our parents to actively look out for the well-being of all Kaiser students is confirmed daily. You drive slowly in the parking lots. You "hug the curb" to eliminate the possibility of students having to cross lanes of traffic to get into the car. You are patient with our wonderful crossing guards even when their efforts to get students safely across our busy streets result in "luxurious pauses" at the intersections near our school. You let us know when anomalies occur - such as the occasional boo boo when a parent enters through the parking lot exit, double parks, or blocks the bus. You model safe behaviors by wearing your helmet when you ride your bike to pick up your child and staying calm, friendly, and helpful when you (along with everyone else) would love to be on your way.
Our new assistant principal, Marc Africano, marveled at Kaiser's after school pick-up time. Having fresh eyes, he had nothing but praise for our system and the fact that our whole community is committed to its success.
Your support of Kaiser shows up all over the place and it makes our school a true treasure. As we move into the Thanksgiving holiday, I want to thank you for your many daily acts of support. Our parents recognize the expertise and dedication of our teachers and our teachers tremendously appreciate the generous and creative help parents provide all the time.
I hope you feel as fortunate as I do during this special time of year. We are a lucky bunch to be here together!
