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.
Roughly 70 Kaiser kids and family members participated in the annual Newport-Mesa Spirit Run a week ago Sunday. Gibson V. was even interviewed and included in an article in the Daily Pilot! This concluded a phenomenal fundraising week and an extremely successful Kaiser Jog-a-Thon. Thank you to everyone who comes out to support the Kaiser community!
We have heard that our beloved Mrs. Seidman will continue to be out while she recovers from the injury she sustained late last year. Please keep her in your thoughts as Mrs. Seidman toughs it out with physical therapy. She misses her Kaiser students greatly and looks forward to returning as soon as she is able. In the meantime, we are so fortunate to have Mr. LaMantia here to provide music instruction for all of our students! Mrs. MacMaster returned to Kaiser following her maternity leave. We are so glad to see Mrs. MacMaster, and her students are thrilled!
Eggs will fall from the sky (or at least from the rooftop) on Wednesday, April 2nd during the annual 4th grade Egg Drop. We look forward to the arrival of MANY eggs and creative protective contraptions on Wednesday morning.
As you know, the week of April 7th is NMUSD’s Spring Break. We all look forward to this pause in the action – when we return, it will be full steam ahead until the end of the school year! Testing begins on April 28th and specific testing dates for each classroom will come home shortly. In the meantime, focusing on excellent attendance and tinkering in the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CA-ASPP) sample tests is a great way to support Kaiser and your student.

I look forward to the next time that I get to share good news you can use!
