Dear Parents,

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




About Our School

May 18, 2015

Dear Parents,

As we conclude another successful school year, I want to thank you for your faithful support. Kingsbury is blessed with outstanding parents and volunteers whose involvement helps to create a very special school culture. Preparations for the 2015-2016 school year have already begun, which includes the development of class rosters. Several factors take precedence in determining student placement. These include: balancing class sizes, student learning styles, achievement levels, gender representation, cultural diversity and student social behaviors/personalities. Parent input has always been valued at Kingsbury. We believe in maintaining a strong partnership through close communication. To that end, you are welcome to provide written information about your child’s strengths and needs along with traits of the teacher and/or classroom environment that you feel are best suited to meet those needs. However, to provide more fairness and equity in the placement process, I will not accept teacher requests by name. Our staff is committed to effectively meeting the needs of all students. The faculty and administration consider the match of student and teacher, the blend of students in their classroom and the balance of classes academically, socially, culturally and by gender. This procedure is carefully executed to ensure that students are placed in a setting that will maximize their potential. If you are interested, please submit your written correspondence to me no later than June 5, 2015. Requests noting teacher names will not be considered.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have questions or concerns.

Thank you for your understanding and for your continued confidence in Kingsbury Elementary.
