The California Department of Education (CDE) awarded Kaiser Elementary with the California Gold Ribbon Award, in recognition of their outstanding educational programs and practices that contribute to closing the achievement gap.

 

Kaiser Elementary uniquely serves students in grades three through six and was selected as a Gold Ribbon School for their success implementing their Read All Day (RAD) Program. The RAD program includes various tiers of instruction, grounded on new state standards, student assessments to determine the tier of instruction that best suits each student’s need, and creating a community culture of reading.

 

The RAD program has resulted in a 24 percent increase in student reading proficiency. Based on 2015 Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium data, English learners exceed state averages by nine percent, socio-economically disadvantaged students exceed state averages by 11 percent and special education students exceed state standards by 18 percent.

Welcome

KAISER KNIGHTS C.A.R.E.!

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" who consistently demonstrate Common sense, Accountability, Respect, and that Everyone matters (C.A.R.E.). As a Positive Behavior Intervention and Support (P.B.I.S.) school, our students, staff, and families are united in providing Kaiser students with a foundation for success as students and young people in an ever-changing world.

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 who C.A.R.E.! As we progress through the year, you can anticipate hearing and seeing more and more evidence of C.A.R.E. at Kaiser!

PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

The Gifts of Giving and Receiving

 

We are on the verge of the season of giving. Next week, we will celebrate Thanksgiving. While many of us be with family and friends, splurging on turkey and gravy along with  pie and whipped cream, some will have more spartan tables. Some have big plans for Winter Break while others feel the stress of not being able to meet their children’s desires during a time that we associate with abundance, joy, and sharing.

 

Five years ago, Kaiser families who recognized their abundance began to “adopt” other Kaiser families who found themselves struggling. What started as adopting one family grew to nine families last year! Additionally, a trio of Kaiser students sold luminarias and donated the proceeds to Orangewood (a foster care facility here in OC). Both recipient and donor families have shared that this experience has provided lessons that cannot be learned in a classroom. The holiday family adoption program has become a proud Kaiser tradition.

 

Would you like to be a donor family? If yes, please contact Dr. Granger by Monday, November 27th at dgranger@nmusd.us. Please share whether you are able to do a complete adoption on your own or if you plan to work with other families. Ideally, families banding together will make these arrangements and indicate all families on the team when informing Dr. Granger. All potential donor families will receive information shortly thereafter.

 

Would being a recipient family help during a difficult time this year? If yes, please contact Dr. Granger by Monday, November 27th at dgranger@nmusd.us. You will be notified shortly afterward if you have been selected for this year’s program.

 

Gratitude, humility, and joy come from giving and receiving. May the upcoming holiday season bring these to you!
