Kindergarten is in their first year of implementing the Developing Roots math program. Our KHS math coach, Caitlin Walsh, visited Ms. Doherty’s class to facilitate a "shelf day." Kindergarteners rotated around the room to stations with a purpose of reinforcing new learning, practicing previously learned skills, or extending and enriching taught concepts.
Kings Highway School loves to come together to support a good cause. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and KHS wanted to show support of a cause that has affected our community. Our PTA led a “KHS is Pink” event on Saturday. Parents, students, and staff came to turn our lawn pink!
Kings Highway School has been busy creating classroom Charters. A Charter describes how students want to feel in their class and what they can do to feel this way. Everyone has a voice in creating a Charter and everyone has a responsibility to uphold it.
It is an annual tradition that Mrs. Carbone reads to every classroom at the start of the school year. This is a great way for her to meet new students, welcome back returning students, and share her love for literacy.
Childhood Cancer Awareness Month is recognized in September, and Kings Highway School was adorned with gold ribbons and raised money for this important cause.
For the first themed spirit day of the year, staff and students wore KHS apparel, dressed in the blue and white school colors, or even came decked out in cheetah print.
