Family Newsletter

June 2017

We’ve worked hard, had a bit of fun, and are ready for a break.  Today we celebrated achievements and successes in every grade level.  We are all so proud of your children for dedicating themselves to learning this past year.  Thank you to all of our parent volunteers who supported our events.  We were able to hold the Color Run, Sports Day, PBIS Carnival, and 5th Grade Celebration because of YOU.  Grateful!

Please keep up with learning  by taking advantage of summer opportunities. Remember all KUSD online programs can be accessed from home.  The library is a great spot on a hot summer day.  Take an outing and turn in into a learning opportunity by asking your child questions, digging deeper, and reflecting afterwards.  Make your child read a map and determine your route.  Pull out a pocket of change and have your child count it while you wait at a restaurant. Cook with your kids.  Look for learning in the simple day to day tasks.  We want them come back ahead of where they are today.  Summer matters.

Somers Garden  Just wanted to let you know about a fun opportunity to help out with our Somers Garden Beds this summer season! We are looking for families/groups to help care for our garden beds. The care would include watering, weeding and harvesting. Each family/group would sign up for a one-week slot. Once signed up, I will send complete instructions and will be available for any questions you may have! In the past, families/groups have emailed me and let me know what week they would like and/or what week(s) they would not be available. Whatever works for you!  Please contact me if you are interested in helping!  Thank you so much for your support!  Justine Jerry (jjerry@kusd.edu)
