Kingsbury Elementary School

– Breaking the Barriers –


From the Principal


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.

Parents, we appreciated those of you who came out for our Spring Parent Teacher Conferences on March 27 and those that will come out on April 3. When teachers and parents work together, there is no question that students will be successful! The enclosed school calendar is loaded with activities, and we hope you will join us as much as your schedule will allow. This month, we will hold our Third Quarter Awards
Programs. On April 5 we will have the 1-2 nd grade award program at 8:30. On April 6, we will hold our 3-5th grade awards at 12:45. Both of these programs will be held in the Multipurpose Room. We are looking forward to our annual talent show. The Knights on Broadway production will be held on Thursday
April 27 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
