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.
The calendar tells us that it’s autumn, so Kaiser staff and students have jumped into fall activities! At the Flag Deck on Wednesday, 10/22, we will announce four winners from the Constitution Day quiz contest that began in September. Students who answered 9 or more questions correctly on a Constitution quiz are eligible for the drawing. Roughly 400 students participated in this voluntary opportunity!
In recognition of Bully Awareness Month, Kaiser students will have the chance to enter the 3rd annual Bully Awareness Poster Contest. Rules and details will be announced on Wednesday. One of the best moments of this school year arrived when a parent reported that her 4th grade daughter shared with friends that there is no bullying at Kaiser. We work hard toward that goal and appreciate all your support in getting us there!
Many thanks to the PFO for its organization of this year’s Red Ribbon Week activities. The last week of October will be filled with nifty reminders about making positive choices. You will see red wristbands come home in about a week.
If you haven’t already purchased Otis Spunkmeyer cookie dough or other delectable products, please remember that for 6th graders, proceeds from their sales go toward their Science Camp tuition. For the other grades, monies raised go toward field trips, assemblies, and other PFO-sponsored enrichment activities at Kaiser. Thank you for your generous support!
Have a wonderful week!
