    Principal's Message

    Greetings, Kaiser Families!

    I know. We must be crazy. BUT, we are going to attempt Kaiser's first ever pre-recorded Talent Show!

    If your Knight is interested in participating, here's what s/he needs to do:

    1) Prepare ONE video that is 2 minutes or less. This video is both the audition tape as well as the performance if it is selected.

    2) Post the video as UNLISTED to YouTube. This means that only people who have the link can view it. 3)Send the link to Mr. Topete and me at and

    4) In the email with the YouTube link, please provide the student's name, teacher's name, the title of the performance, and a short description of the performance.

    Here's an example:

    Student's Name:  Josie Martinez
    Teacher's Name: Mr. Timpani
    Title of Performance: "Fly Me to the Moon"
    Short Description: Tumbling routine to the song, "Fly Me to the Moon"

    Parents, you are the first vetters of the performance.  When the link is sent to us, you're telling us that it is school appropriate (ok for 8 year olds to watch) and that you approve it possibly being posted so that all Kaiser students and families can watch it. The video needs to be made between now and June 9th. 

    When we at Kaiser share the link to the actual Talent Show, it will be an Unlisted YouTube link. If you submit a link to your child's performance, you are telling us that you understand that anyone with the link can view the performance and you approve this. Additionally, you are telling us that you understand that when we share the Talent Show link during the last week of school, anyone who acquires the link can watch the Talent Show. If your child's performance is included, you approve this.

    This is an opportunity for students to showcase talents that might not be able to be included during a traditional school talent show. We have students who ride horses, are competitive divers, etc.

    Mr. Topete and I will review all entries that meet the time limit and are submitted by midnight, June 9th. We will announce the winners by Friday, June 12th. The link will be shared by classroom teachers during the last week of the school year for students to watch.

    When we announce students' names, we will not include last names. 

    Kaiser's got TONS OF TALENT! We can't wait to see it!

    Be well! Elbow bumps to you all!
