Dear Parents,

Another exciting month of teaching and learning has come to end at Kingsbury! There have been many exciting events to talk about. Please let me share just a few highlights before looking ahead to next month.

We had an outstanding turnout at Kingsbury’s annual Grandparents’ Day Breakfasts in September. Many thanks to our grandparents for continuously supporting the life and work of our school. The PTA Open House program on September 9 was a big success! Those attending received valuable information on the opening of school and upcoming events. Parents also visited with their child’s teacher and enjoyed a hot dog dinner. It was a special time of fellowship for the entire school family. We also added many new memberships. Our PTA is instrumental in supporting the needs of our school. Please make it a point to join PTA if you have not already done so! Kudos to our awesome volunteers!

October promises to bring more awesome experiences for our students. Your child’s teacher will contact you to schedule a fall parent conference. At these conferences, teachers will review student progress and student goals will be set based on Fall MAP scores. Teachers and parents will set goals for the students at these meetings.

Please plan to attend this very important meeting so we can work together for student achievement! Thank you for your ongoing partnership in providing a world-class education for your child. You don’t want to miss our annual Fall Carnival scheduled for Friday, November 1 from 4:30-6:30 PM. There will be games, activities, food, and fun for the entire family! We are looking forward to seeing you there! The first quarter ends on October 21 and report cards will be issued on October 31.
Our much-anticipated Character Parade will be held on Thursday, October 31. The parade for preschool-2nd grades will begin at 8AM and 3-5 grades will begin immediately following. Be sure to come by that morning and photograph or video your child’s participation in this exciting event! There are many events scheduled for this month.

Check the calendar on page 5 to view events. You can also visit our school website to see the monthly calendar of events at Kingsbury is a great place to be. We take pride in being a caring community school that is ―Growing Great Minds!‖ I’m glad that your family is sharing in the magic! Thank you for your continued support and let me know if I may be of any help at any time.
