Dear Kent County Middle School Families:
I would like to start off by welcoming you to the 2013-2014 school year! It is with great excitement that I join Kent County Middle School as your principal. Though I thoroughly enjoyed the past three years as an assistant principal at Kent County High School, middle school will forever hold a special place in my heart because of the twenty-five years I spent as part of the Galena Middle School community.
I am energized and deeply committed to making a positive difference in the lives of your children. By addressing school culture, setting high standards for teacher performance, increasing academic expectations for all students and engaging the community, KCMS faculty and staff will prepare students to be college or career ready.
As you are enjoying the last few days of summer, I trust that you are also getting excited about the new school year. Below is a list of important dates and information:
· August 22: Open House from 1-2:30 pm
o Please plan on attending the Open House on August 22nd from 1-2:30 pm. This is an opportunity for students and parents to meet classroom teachers and walk around the school. The PTSA will also be hosting an ice cream social in the cafeteria.
· August 26: First Day of School for Grade 6
o This is our transition day for our 6th graders.
· August 27: First Day of School for Grades 7-8
· September 12: PTSA Back to School Night at 6 pm
o Back to School Night is Thursday, September 12th at 6 pm. Please join our faculty and the PTSA for an important informational evening. You will have the opportunity to experience your student’s daily schedule, get an overview of what your child will be learning, and meet teachers.
· Unfortunately, KCMS was not awarded the grant that funded the KCMS Morning drop-off program. Therefore, students will not be permitted onto campus prior to 8:20 am
We sincerely believe that educating students is a team effort and that together we can make a positive difference in your child's life. We invite you to become an active participant in our school community by volunteering, joining our PTSA, or attending and supporting school events. Student success increases when we work as a team!
