A Message From Your Principal

The 2023-2024 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. This year’s theme is “Lead from the Heart.” Through empathy, humanity, and authenticity we build strong, trusting relationships and a thriving, purpose-driven school.
Our PTA fundraiser began on August 22 and will conclude on September 5. Excellent products and delicious sweets are available. We appreciate your support in this important cause to raise money for our school. Funds will be used for needed school improvements. We will hold Open House on Monday, September 11 at 5:30. Please come out and meet your child’s teacher if you have not done so and see student work on display. This will be an excellent chance to build home and school relations.
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. Make sure to register for the communication app that is used by your child’s teacher (Class Dojo). 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. It is critical for school and home to maintain a close and cooperative partnership in order for our children to be successful. I also encourage you to participate in Parent Portal. Through this program, you can access your child’s attendance and grades electronically. Contact Ms. Barr 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 soon in the “kingdom!”

Phillip W., Jackson, Principal
