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.
On December 3rd, David B. in Mrs. Andino’s class received special recognition for his achievement in the Costa Mesa Library Foundation’s essay contest. At the awards ceremony, we learned that 360 entries were submitted and David was the runner up! In addition to his certificate, David went home with a fifty dollar bill in his pocket. He said he’s going to put it toward a new bike. Because he represented Kaiser so wonderfully, David also has been named a Kaiser Shining Knight and was recognized at this week’s Flag Deck. This is a special school recognition that comes with a certificate, window cling, In and Out Burger certificate, and a privilege card including a free skate night.
There are lots of opportunities presented to students throughout the year allowing them to express themselves creatively and demonstrate their academic prowess. We anticipate recognizing even more Kaiser Shining Knights for great community representation and school service as the year progresses. Who knows, your student might be next!
Our “Early Bird” academic support program started this week. Thank you to all the parents who are making sure their students arrive at school by 7:45 to take advantage of this valuable resource. Parents of eligible students were contacted at report card time. If your child was identified as eligible and you would still like to sign up, please contact the front office.
The week of December 15th will be filled with pre-Winter Break activities including music performances for all grade levels. We are especially excited about Kaiser’s special Band and Orchestra concert in the MPR on December 16th at 7 o’clock! Please come and enjoy the music!
The annual Holiday Boutique was a grand success. THANK YOU to our PFO for organizing this tremendous event and to all our Kaiser families that supported it! There’s so much to love about our school!
Have a wonderful week!
