WELCOME KAISER KNIGHTS!
Kaiser Elementary School is the home of the Kaiser Knights – noble in thought, word, and deed. Our mission is to build a “community of life-long learners.” In addition to our dedicated staff and bright students, Kaiser also is surrounded by a community of families that care deeply about the academic and life success of our students.
You will find that our expectations are high and that they are matched by our support in achieving them. It is our intention that when Kaiser students move up to intermediate and high school, they will be powerful thinkers with a strong knowledge base, skill set, sense of creativity, and commitment to community. In other words, Kaiser Knights are 21stcentury global citizens.
The Show’s the Thing!
Congratulations to all the Kaiser students who SHINED in this week’s performances of Peter Pan, Jr. Over the course of four performances, the cast wowed all of our students as well as the sold-out family performances at the beautiful venue in Irvine. Thank you to the parents who volunteered countless hours to chaperone, build sets, create costumes, apply make-up, sell tickets, print programs….Our PFO’s commitment to the arts is evident in every year’s OUTSTANDING performance. This year’s presentations were exceptional. As they left the theater, one student after another shared how wonderful the show was, how much they wanted to go to Neverland, and how badly they want to be in next year’s play. Adults in attendance couldn’t help but notice the parent stage crew – their dedication, professionalism, and commitment to a fun, meaningful experience for Kaiser actors and audience members was evident in abundance. Kudos to Kaiser’s young thespians and to all of you who contributed to the grand effort!
Next week we will celebrate Read Across America Day and Author’s Day with a special assembly in which students meet a published author. Kaiser’s Math Mob begins on Monday – it’s a lunchtime club for students in grades 4 – 6 who love math games and solving tricky problems. Monday, March 2nd is Skate (K)night. Students who recently received Kaiser Shining Knight awards for academics and service received privilege cards, which include a free skate night!
Finally, please be sure to check your calendars for your parent-teacher conference dates and times. These are precious opportunities to review student achievement and prepare for the anchor leg of the school year. Conference week is March 9 – 13.
Have a wonderful week! I look forward to sharing more great Kaiser happenings soon!
