KCS Tel-U-Gram June 6, 2019


We are sending out the Tel-u-Gram a day early to remind everyone about the KCPTA-sponsored Benefit Dinner for Super Wy (Wyatt Sargent and his family) being held tomorrow night (Friday) 6:00-8:00 on the town field across the street from the school. We hope you can join us for lots of fun activities, all for a good cause too.

Tomorrow morning, our students in grades three through five will participate in our third annual Amazing Shake. The teachers have been working hard planning all the logistics. The students have been working hard to practice their SPECIAL skills. We look forward to a fun morning with many community members joining us. 

Earlier this week, our fourth graders culminated an immigration unit by participating in a simulation event. They had all created their own characters and back stories for the day, then engaged in activities as those characters to get a sense of what it was like for immigrants to come to America years ago. We appreciate all the parent volunteers who helped; we couldn't have done it all without you! 

If your child's birthday is in June, we will be calling them to the birthday circle at tomorrow's Friday Morning Meeting. If your child celebrates their birthday in July or August, we will be calling them up to the circle next Friday. 

Happy Weekend, Karen Bubar, Principal

As we enter June, it's hard to believe a full school year has passed. There is so much happening this month. Please, make sure to read class newsletters and the Tel-u-Gram, so that you don't miss any important events.

YOUR VOICE MATTERS! In the past, KCS has held Fall Curriculum Nights for parents of students at every grade level. Sometimes teachers who are working together would host one night and share information with parents about curriculum and expectations for the year as a team. With the shift to multiage learning/classrooms, we have an opportunity to revamp this event to best meet your needs. If the current format works, then that's fine too. Please, consider what YOUR needs are with regard to information from the school at the beginning of the school year. What type of information and format will give you the best information to partner with us in an effort to provide your child with a successful school year? Please, take just a minute to answer the following questions that will help us decide how to move forward with this important fall activity. Thanks, Principal Karen Bubar

KCS Tel-U-Gram - April 26, 2019

At this morning's Friday Morning Meeting, we had guests from the Arundel Lodge who were giving away Bikes for Books. Students have been busy reading for the past month or so. The Masons have been busy building these bikes for the children. Today, it all came together when we selected 20 names (two per class plus a couple extras) to give them bikes, helmets, and t-shirts. We are grateful to the Masons for their generosity. 

Happy Weekend, Karen Bubar, Principal

We had another fabulously fun Friday Morning Meeting today! Guest reader / author Nicole Holbrook, who is a KCS parent, shared one of her books with us. One of our second graders sang beautifully a solo song to a standing ovation! Officer Ashley recognized two more KCS STARS! Then...

Our 3rd-5th graders have been working hard this week to "show what they know" on the state testing. Teachers have been recognizing them for using specific strategies during testing blocks with raffle tickets. Students take those tickets and put them into buckets for different reward activities, one of which was a mystery until this morning. Selected students were able to play Pie Face against staff members. Lots of fun was had by all, even those with pie in their faces. (for pictures... see our Twitter page: @RSU21_KCS)

There are not enough adequate words to express how proud we are of our play performers. We are grateful to KCPTA and all the individuals who spent time ensuring that the play was a positive experience for our students. They've worked hard, yet enjoyed their time together. All three performances (including the dress rehearsal during the school day) were enjoyable to watch. We've heard lots of feedback about how wonderful this year's production has been. Thanks, KCPTA, and everyone who helped.

Last Friday, Sue Richardson and Janet Wendle spoke with us about their organization called Lucky Pup Rescue and how that work relates to our STARS success skills. We appreciate them taking the time to share that experience with us. This Friday, Leia Lowery from Kennebunkport Conservation Trust will be joining us to talk about STARS in her life. Thanks to our community members for participating in this important work and reinforcing how STARS extends well beyond the school walls. 

Happy Weekend,

Karen Bubar, 

Principal

Our students have been working hard on their STARS success skills posters as grade level teams. The posters were presented this morning to all the students, staff, and parents at Friday Morning Meeting. Each grade level approached the task in their own way. We will be displaying these posters around the building as reminders for all of us to continue practicing these skills, so be on the lookout as you walk through the building. 

Happy Weekend, 

Karen Bubar,

KCS Tel-u-Gram - January 10, 2019

At Friday Morning Meeting, Principal Bubar shared some information about stock car racing and how the STARS qualities connect with that activity. (In case you didn’t know, her son drives a race car and she is a member of his pit crew.) We hope that students are transferring some of the learning about the STARS qualities beyond the school building into other parts of their life, such as sports teams and other groups in which they participate.

Happy Weekend, Karen Bubar, Principal
