Dear Parents,
Spring is in the air at Kingsbury Elementary! Our students are excited about the many special events and trips that are scheduled for the remainder of the year. It’s hard to believe that we are entering the final quarter of the school year.
The enclosed school calendar is loaded with activities, and we hope you will join us as much as your schedule will allow. On Thursday, April 4, report cards will be issued. On Tuesday, April 9 we will hold our 4-5th grade Awards Program at 1 PM in the multi-purpose room. On Wednesday, April 10, our 2-3rd grade program will take place at 8:15 AM in the multi-purpose room.
We are looking forward to our annual talent show. The Knights on Broadway production will be held on Monday, April 8 at 6pm at the Opera House on Main Street in Downtown Sumter. This promises to be a night of talent and Knightly Family Fun!
Also, as we approach the spring season, there are many opportunities for parents to get involved by chaperoning field trips or volunteering in a number of different seasonal events. If you are not sure what area in which to volunteer, please contact me, and we will find the right niche for you here at Kingsbury.
During the month of May, the 3-5 graders will take the SC Ready Test in ELA and math. Fourth graders will also take the SC PASS in the area of science and fifth graders will take the SC PASS in the area of social studies. The students are working hard to prepare. Please encourage your child to do his or her best, get a good night’s sleep and be on time each day. Parents play a major role in shaping a child’s attitude towards school in general and testing in particular. More information on the testing will follow and parents can refer to the enclosed calendar for specific testing dates.
Thank you for your ongoing support and confidence in our school. Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can be of any assistance at any time. I look forward to seeing you soon in The Kingdom.

Respectfully,

Phillip W. Jackson, Principal
