Welcome to Kingsbury Elementary School


From the Principal

JacksonDear Parents,

Welcome to the month of November! October was filled with many exciting activities for our students and Kingsbury Family.

As you know, First Quarter report cards were issued on October 27. Please contact your child’s teacher as needed to discuss his or her progress and any concerns you may have. Through collective communication and collaboration, most issues are effectively resolved. Your child’s academic achievement is our top priority. This year’s Character Parade was outstanding. The children truly demonstrated their devotion to books and reading when creating such fun, innovative costumes. Note that our First Quarter Awards Program for First and Second grades will be November 3 at 12:45 p.m. Third through Fifth grades will be held on November 4 at 8:30 a.m. Both of these programs will be held in the Multi-purpose Room. We look forward to having you join us to celebrate your child’s success. There will be no school on Election Day which is Tuesday, November 8. We will be holding a Veteran’s Day Assembly on November 10 to honor our veterans and instill patriotic pride. Students in kindergarten-2nd grade will attend the program at 8:30, and students in grades 3-5 will attend the 9:30 program. Also note that there will be no school on November 11 in observance of Veteran’s Day.

This month we are beginning our Spirit Nights at Chick-Fil-A, Marco’s Pizza, and Sonic. Please come out and support our school at these events. More details will be sent home soon.

The Kingsbury PTA will sponsor a special meeting on November 14th at 6 PM in celebration of American Education Week. Please report to the cafeteria upon arrival. Student Council officers will be recognized that evening and musical selections will be provided by our choir. Following the meeting, a delicious “Thanks-For-Giving” meal will be served. More information about the meal will be sent home as the date approaches. If you are not a member of the PTA, you can join the PTA that night! Please make plans to attend.

As we enter into this holiday season, please let me express my gratitude for your continued support and confidence in Kingsbury Elementary. As always, please do not hesitate to contact me if I may be of any help at any time! Best wishes for a happy and blessed Thanksgiving Holiday!

Phillip W. Jackson, Principal
