Quote Of The Week

"Smell the sea, and feel the sky. Let your soul and spirit fly." —Van Morrison

What an extraordinary year it has been! Thank you to all who joined our PTA General Meeting last week. We celebrated our years’ many accomplishments but feel it is worth saying again… THANK YOU to all of you, especially our PTA volunteers for EVERYTHING you did this year, before quarantine and after. 

We are also grateful to our teachers and staff who demonstrated that a school isn’t just a building but rather a community. A virtual place where all of us came together and supported each other during these challenging times. Thank you to all our children too, for being resilient and continuing to use their perseverance power to learn and grow. 

To our KHS 5th Graders, You are on your way! You may not be having the traditional send off, but you get to be the first (and possibly only) class to have a HONK OUT (Wednesday, June 10th).  We want to extend a big CONGRATULATIONS and best wishes to all of you! And to our “graduating” parents who won't be returning next year, we sincerely thank you. You will be missed.

Happy Retirement to one of our most cherished teachers, MRS.BITLER!  We hope you have exciting and relaxing times ahead. You will be deeply missed but not forgotten at KHS. You have inspired so many children’s learning experiences and certainly served as a mentor to faculty and parents alike.  Thank you for your years of dedication and please come back to visit KHS next year!

We would also like to say a heartfelt thank you and good bye to Sara Snow, our past president and also someone who has put her heart and dedication into our school PTA. We wish the Snow family well for their new adventure in California and would like them to know that they will always be part of our KHS family in spirit.

We truly have a special school community at KHS where teachers and parents, together, are a beautiful example of our school motto - Kind Hearts Shine! Have a wonderful summer and fingers crossed we see you in school next year!

XO,

Kim & Rosie
