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.
I love Fridays at Kaiser! Students wear their spirit gear. Teachers find ways to “take care of business” AND make the day a little lighter. On our most recent Friday, fifth grade students participated in Walk Through the American Revolution, a very special educational assembly provided by our PFO. The day before, Kaiser’s sixth graders boarded busses for a visit to Ensign. This marked the beginning of the end of their experience at Kaiser. Third graders participated in a “Rethink Resources” assembly to learn about recycling, ecology, and the environment. It was another busy week of learning and enrichment.
The school play is under way! Rehearsals continue after school. Students are learning to dance, sing, and act. Sixth grade before-school science enrichment class continues each week along with before-school academic support class. Exciting activities are going on before, during and after school to maximize the opportunities for students to participate in academic enrichment and support activities.
Kaiser students will participate in the field test of the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress beginning on April 28th. Teachers will send home letters with the dates your children are participating. Kaiser students will be tested in the computer lab. Although it will take approximately five weeks to complete the testing process for the whole school, each student will spend about four hours over the course of 3 – 4 visits to the computer lab taking the field test. This is a test of the test. We will not receive any scores from this year’s test.
It’s extremely helpful for students to develop their keyboarding skills and to become familiar with the online tools related to the test. For example, there’s a little flag icon. If a student wants to return to a question to double-check it later, s/he just clicks on the little flag. When it’s time to finish for the day, the computer will remind the student to double-check the question s/he flagged. Handy! You and your student can play around with the test.
