Welcome

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.

PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

That’s What I’m Talkin’ About!

What a fantastic week we just had! If your youngster came home with an extra bit of dirt beneath his or her fingernails, it might just be from the first meeting of Kaiser’s Garden Club! Students weeded our three raised-bed planters and planned for the first planting session. Of course, we enjoyed seeing Knights with NM Spirit Run medals on campus and continued with the Kaiser Math “Mob.” Our “Mobsters” played with circles and pi while our Cleaning Genies were busy sneaking into classrooms to do good deeds. We were proud to debut the district’s first stand-up bass at the elementary level! Some classes had as many as seven students with perfect attendance during the second trimester – we hope to break that record during the home stretch of the school year.

Sometimes people ask what my vision is for our treasure of a school. To be succinct, it is that every child at Kaiser will leave here with social, cultural, and knowledge capital necessary to thrive in life. That’s the fancy way of saying that every child will leave Kaiser with a crew of friends and adults to support them (social capital), an understanding of and ability to do what it takes to be successful in the world (cultural capital), as well as the basic knowledge, essential skills, and ability to think critically and creatively (knowledge capital) to thrive now and in the future. We work on these three areas daily at Kaiser – in the classroom, on the playground, and through extracurricular experiences.

As we look forward to Friday’s upcoming Jog-A-Thon, I cannot help but think of the cultural, social, and knowledge capital our parents bring to Kaiser daily. You band together to support us, help us provide resources that allow our students to be successful, and use your extensive skills and talents to our benefit. Thank you!

If you’d like to help with some knowledge capital at home, be sure to check out the state test training test site! The more familiar students are with the logistics of the test, the easier it will be come late April. Here’s how:

http://caaspp.org/practice-and-training/index.html.

On the "Please Sign In" page, click on "Sign In." NO ID number or other information is necessary.

On the "Is This You?" page, choose the grade level and select "yes."

On the "Your Tests" page, you will see 3 options for math and another 3 for language arts: Training Test, Practice Test, and Performance Task (see descriptions of these below). Choose the one you'd like to try, and off you go! I recommend starting with a Training Test.

Have a wonderful week – can’t wait to see students’ CRAZY SOCKS at the Jog-A-Thon on Friday! And, just one more week until Science Camp!
