Welcome Back to the KSA School Community;
As we quickly approach the last 60 days of school, I am excited about the planned happenings for the 3rd quarter of the school year. Our upcoming plans include a host of instructional activities that will heighten the student learning experience at the KSA. The numerous Literacy Events planned will continue to focus on strengthening the academic foundation of our students which measurable progress to date.
Keeping the KSA families involved in our school community requires that we open our academic doors for a strong home and school connection. As such I hope you joined us at the Winter Musical featuring the KSA Khorus, where the student performances highlighted our KSA stars in the making. Or perhaps you experienced our student performances at the Black History Month (BHM) Show which marveled the entire school community.
The show doesn’t stop there, we began in February 2017, our new Boys Mentoring program called the Joeys Group. Our school mascot is the KSA KoKo the Kangaroo and a Joey is a baby kangaroo, so what better way than nurturing the development of our young boys in the 8 character traits through a mentoring experience.
The month of March was also busy month for us at the KSA. As we participated in Read Across America we really Read Across Roselle. The week long events focused on literacy activities using Dr. Seuss's books as the theme of all stories read.
Finally, as part of the Healthy School Alliance, the KSA Marathon Team was formed and continues to find ways to meet their 26 mile journey. So far they are at a milestone of 13 miles, LET’S KEEP RUNNING TEAM.
With only 3 remaining months of school, we hope that you join us for one or more opportunities to partner in learning here at the KSA. Coming up in April 2017, we will have our Spring Concert and the Autism Awareness Events, just to name a few.
