KCS Tel-U-Gram - March 22, 2019

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

KCS Tel-U-Gram - February 28, 2019

Approximately 70 KCS students have been working hard since January to learn their lines and songs for the spring play, Disney Peter Pan Jr. We are looking forward to the culminating performances this weekend. Performances will be 7pm tonight and Saturday night. Tickets will be sold at the door for $8 each. Thanks to KCPTA for sponsoring this activity for our students again this year. A special thanks to Ann Guiney who is directing the play and Bryce Lenzen who has been coordinating all the logistics. Please, join us for one of the shows and cheer on our students for all their hard work. 

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,

Principal

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

This morning, Mrs. Travis shared the book Ripple Effect by Shawn Achor with the students at Friday Morning Meeting. She asked students to think about happiness being a choice and how it is contagious. In case you're interested in hearing more from this author, his TED talk can be found at this link. Thank you, Mrs. Travis for sharing this book and message with us.

Happy Weekend,

In honor of the Red Sox playing in the World Series, tomorrow will be Sports Shirt Day at KCS. Participation is optional, yet we hope many of our students and staff will be showing their sports team spirit tomorrow. The shirt can be for any team; it doesn't have to be a Red Sox shirt.

In a couple weeks, I will be hosting a Parent Information Night to talk about our school goals for the year. Please, join me on Wednesday, November 7th at 6:00-7:00 pm in the KCS Library to learn more about the work happening at KCS.

Happy Weekend,

KCS Tel-u-Gram - October 19, 2018

Thanks to River Tree Arts and Education Foundation of Kennebunks and Arundel for sponsoring another RSU 21 Arts Festival this week. Third, fourth, and fifth grade students from across the district participated in art activities at Sea Road School this week including painting pottery, juggling, metalsmithing, and many more. Our students left with memories of fun, creative experiences and some cool works of art. Some of these projects will be displayed in our display case near the office in the coming weeks.

Happy Weekend,
