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.
Election Day at Kaiser
Student Council elections took place last Friday. Nineteen candidates presented election speeches to their peers for the offices of historian, secretary, vice-president, and president. And, the results are in!
Kaiser’s new slate of Student Council officers is as follows:
True to Kaiser form, today’s winners demonstrated great sportsmanship and genuine care for their friends who did not attain the offices to which they aspired. I was equally impressed by the candidates who showed such grace when they did not emerge the victors. They were the first to congratulate their friends and to promise their support. Kaiser has some classy kids!
In another election altogether, Miss Kwan was voted by her colleagues as Kaiser's Teacher of the Year. She will represent our school in February at the district's Teacher of the Year gala. Our PFO made her a beautiful sash that she accepted with great humility and joy.
We’ve been busy at Kaiser! Thirteen 5th graders started the Ranch Program at Centennial Farm and students began Art Masters lessons. The Music Mobile came to Kaiser and 3rd graders learned about the instruments in the orchestra. Wednesday was college shirt day and PFO-sponsored movie night was a hit Friday night!
You can look forward to Skate Night tonight at the Fountain Valley Skate Center and our first School Site Council Meeting for the year at 7:45 in Wednesday morning.
State test reports should be arriving at home soon. Next week, I’ll have more information on that important topic! Have a wonderful week!
