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.
Some parents have been asking about Flag Decks. Here’s a bit of information that might be helpful to know. Flag Decks are school wide announcement assemblies that take place across our school district. Every school does Flag Decks its own way. At Kaiser, we conduct Flag Decks once a month and provide daily announcements over the loud speaker the rest of the time.
At Flag Decks, students and guests participate in the Pledge of Allegiance and recite the school pledge. Our Student Council officers make announcements and introduce speakers. We highlight one or two of Coach John Wooden’s personal success characteristics and announce big events. For example, at Wednesday’s Flag Deck, we announced the eight winners from the Constitution Day Contest and kicked off the Bully Awareness Poster Contest. Our PFO president held a drawing for two House of Yogurt gift cards for the students whose parents have found the Knight that’s “hidden” in the Knight line, PFO’s weekly electronic newsletter. We announced that next week is Red Ribbon Week and that on Friday, October 31st, Kaiser will hold “Freaky Friday,” when students get to dress up like teachers or adults and the grown-ups at school get to dress like kids! At Kaiser, Flag Decks are as much about school spirit as they are about important information. Parents are always welcome!
On another note, a Kaiser 5th grader, Bryan R., was recognized by the NMUSD School Board at its meeting last week for his academic achievement. It was a special and proud moment for Bryan and his family. I was thrilled to see a Kaiser student stand out at this special event. Go Bryan!
Have a wonderful week!
