assessments will begin at KMS for 5th and 6th grades in April. As we prepare for the assessments, please
encourage your children to get plenty of sleep, eat well, and to give their
best effort. The state assessments will
be different this year than they have in the past. Some changes for this year include only two
testing days for ELA and Math for each grade level as well as various types of
questions besides multiple choice.

The third nine weeks
ends on March 7. PT conferences are
scheduled for March 10 and 11 from 4-8pm.
A schedule will be sent home soon. Please confirm the time and let the teacher
or office know if that particular time does not work. This is a great time to discuss your child’s
progress in school. 100% attendance at
conferences is our goal and with your help we will be able to achieve it!
for parents to ask teachers during conferences:
1. What are my child's strengths?
2. If you could choose one area for my
child to improve on, which would it be?
3. What kind of progress has my child
made since the beginning of school?
4. How does my child relate to his/her
5. How are my child's organizational
6. How can I support my child best?
Parents know their children best! Asking
for specific ideas from the teacher is appreciated and encouraged by our staff
as it helps us meet the needs of our students.
