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

Another Milestone Crossed!

 

Last Friday morning, nearly 200 sixth graders crossed the threshold toward middle school and eventual adult life. Whether your baby crossed this milestone today or you just finished your first year at Kaiser, it is my highest hope that you see and feel the supreme efforts made on behalf of Kaiser students day in and day out.

 

Thank you to Kaiser families for the financial resources you provide to enrich our students’ experiences as well as your gifts of time and kindness. We are a true reflection of our uniquely magnificent community and how everyone works together. Just a couple of weeks ago, Kaiser parents became impromptu traffic directors following a traffic accident in front of school as the end of the day approached. They looked out for the hundreds of students streaming out of school and kept the situation calm. That kind of support doesn't happen everywhere!

 

May your summer be rejuvenating and restorative. We will take a short break ourselves, then it will be all about “provisioning the ship” for a fabulous 2017-2018!

 

Don't forget to read with and to your kiddos in addition to having them read to you and on their own!

 

Happy Summer!
