Dear Parents,

The 2017-2018 School Year is off to a great start here at Kingsbury Elementary! It was encouraging to see such outstanding parent participation at our beginning of school orientation programs! We are truly looking forward to working with you and your child this year. As mentioned at orientation, our theme this year is “Light the Fire.” Working together as a school community, with a shared purpose and vision, we will light the fire for learning in our students that will continue to burn throughout their lifetime.

As we look to another successful year, I cannot overemphasize the importance of frequent and effective communication. In addition to our monthly newsletter, please check our school website for important updates and announcements. Please ensure that you have returned your family’s green emergency card so that we have your current contact information. Check your child’s book bag daily for important documents sent home from the school. In addition, do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher when questions or concerns arise relating to your child’s education and welfare. Our teachers are available to schedule conferences with you as needed. We have an open door policy at Kingsbury, and you are welcome to visit our school at any time. It is critical for school and home to maintain a close and cooperative partnership in order for our children to be successful. I encourage you to participate in parent portal. Through this program, you can access your child’s’ attendance and grades by computer. Contact Mrs. Cook in the Main Office for additional information. As always, please let me know if I may be of any assistance, at any time. Thank you for your continued confidence in Kingsbury Elementary, and I look forward to seeing you

Phillip W. Jackson, Principal
