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.
What a fantastic Spring Break! We’re all ready for an exciting week! As I look at the calendar, I see that the PFO meets Monday morning at 9 o’clock at Kaiser and the Foundation meets on Monday evening at 7 o’clock at Woodland. Third graders will be packing up to visit the Helena Modjeska house while sixth graders prepare for the transition to intermediate school with a visit to Ensign later in the week. The Daughters of the American Revolution will recognize one student from each fifth grade class at their annual awards ceremony on Wednesday afternoon. The calendar is a perpetual reminder of the rapid pulse of school life and the universe surrounding our focal point: learning. I marvel at our phenomenal teachers and their flexibility in moving from algebra to jog-a-thon to computer lab to disaster drill to lunch to language arts to assembly to science…you get the picture! What Kaiser teachers do to ensure that your students receive the best possible educational experiences is nothing short of amazing!
In addition to a phenomenal staff, I frequently brag about our school community. A culture of volunteerism and commitment to help is part of the Kaiser community DNA. In fact, some of you may be interested in a chance to volunteer for a short period of time during our upcoming lunchtime handball tournament. It starts in roughly a week and we could use court officials to ensure accurate recording of wins and losses. The tournament will take place over a period of a few weeks beginning in late April and ending in mid May. Tournament play will take place during lunch between 12:15 and 1:15 on tournament days. If you’re interested, please contact the office for more information.
As mentioned recently, state testing will begin in a couple of weeks. I encourage you to “test the waters” by checking out the sample tests. The more familiar students are with the test’s online format and features, the more confident they will feel during their test sessions. To access the sample tests, please look to the bottom right of this webpage and click on the State Test Training Site link.
Thank you for all your support! Maybe we’ll see you on the handball court!
