Dear Parents,

We are entering the busiest season of the school year. The month of May is loaded with end-of-the-year activities, trips, awards programs, and testing. This has been a very successful year in the kingdom. Your support has made our success possible, and we thank you.

Our annual Volunteer Breakfast will be held Thursday, May 3, at 8AM. We deeply appreciate our faithful volunteers and the wonderful service they provide day to day for our students. We could not accomplish what we do for our students without you!Kingsbury will observe Employee Appreciation Week May 7-11. Our PTA has planned many thoughtful gifts and services to make sure our staff feels valued and appreciated.

SC Ready testing will be held during the month of May in the areas of math, reading, and writing. Please note the dates on the enclosed calendar. SC PASS will be administered to 4th graders in science and 5th graders in social studies. Please make sure your child receives a good night’s sleep and healthy breakfast each day. It is important that students arrive at school on time each of these days! These tests measure student achievement levels based on the South Carolina Curriculum Standards. Please encourage your child to give her or his best effort and support them during this important assessment. Test results will assist our teachers in planning instruction to meet the individual needs of all students.

Please note the enclosed calendar for important events that you will want to attend this month. Interims will go home on Monday, May 7. Our Spring Concert and Play will be held on Monday, May 14 at 6PM. Our Field Day for grades 3-5 will be held on Thursday, May 24 and Field Days for grades K-2nd which will be held on Friday, May 25. Field Day times are 8:15-10:45 for all grades.

Note that school will be closed on Monday, May 28 in observance of Memorial Day. The last day of preschool is June 1. The Promotion Ceremony for 5th graders will be held at Patriot Hall, Wednesday, June 6 at 6PM. The last two days of school (June 6 and 7) will be half days for students with 11AM dismissal.

Do not hesitate to contact me if I may be able to help at any time. I look forward to seeing you often throughout the “Kingdom” during these last few weeks of school!
