Kennebunkport Consolidated School ~ Tel-u-Gram for Friday, Sept 6th, 2019
We had a great first Friday Morning Meeting of the year! If you are ever available at 8:30 on Friday morning and want to join us for our weekly assembly, please do. All are welcome!
As we begin the school year, we are welcoming a few new staff members and have some staffing changes worth noting:
All classroom teachers have a new “assignment” since we shifted to multiage classes.
Leeward Team (K/1) - Alyson Robillard & Michelle Roberts
Windward Team (2/3) - Megan O’Donnell & Karen Lyman
Seaward Team (4/5) - Kristin Roper, Janet Wendle, & Andrew Nye
Maria Cote joins the Leeward Team as one of our K/1 classroom teachers.
Amy Snow joins the Windward Team as one of our 2/3 classroom teachers.
Christina DeFilipp is returning to KCS as our art teacher for all grades. She will spend the other part of her week at Kennebunk Elementary School.
Johnny Sanford has been hired as one of our special education teachers after fulfilling the role in a long-term sub capacity last spring.
Danielle MacDonald joins us as one of our educational technicians.
Please, welcome all of these new staff members to our Kennebunkport Consolidated School community.
Each fall, we ask parents to go into Power School to update your information. Thanks to those of you who have already done so. If you have not yet updated the “publish on the web” and “publish in the media” options, please do so. Setting that to “yes” allows us to publish pictures and work of your child on our websites or in the media. Those options get reset each year to a default “no,” so we can not post pictures or share pictures of your child until you change that to “yes.” If you do not want to give permission, that is fine to leave as “no.” But, we find that many parents don’t even know that it is checked off as “no” until we mention it to them. Lastly, if you are unable to access these options online, please let Kathy know what you prefer for picture sharing, and she can make the change in the system with your permission.
Happy Weekend, Karen Bubar, Principal
