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. One of the highlights of March was the Knights Royal Ball which drew over 100 attendees. Students enjoyed an evening of food, dancing, and special photographs. It was a great school-community event and as always, a favorite annual tradition. The enclosed school calendar is loaded with activities, and we hope you will join us as much as your schedule will allow. On Tuesday, April 10, report cards will be issued.

We have scheduled two Parent conference nights during the month. The first will be held on Tuesday, April 10 and the second on Tuesday, April 17. Both of these will run from 2:30 PM until 5:30 PM. Parents, we appreciate your efforts in attending these conferences. The teachers will review Spring MAP scores, discuss student growth, and their overall progress. When teachers and parents work together, there is no question that students will be successful!

On Tues April 17, we will hold our 4-5th grade Awards Program at 1 PM in the multipurpose room. On Wednesday, April 18, 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 Thursday April 19 at the Sumter High School Auditorium at 6pm. 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 participate in the SC Ready Test. Fourth and fifth graders will also be taking SC PASS. 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.

Phillip W. Jackson, Principal
