The California Department of Education (CDE) awarded Kaiser Elementary with the California Gold Ribbon Award, in recognition of their outstanding educational programs and practices that contribute to closing the achievement gap.


Kaiser Elementary uniquely serves students in grades three through six and was selected as a Gold Ribbon School for their success implementing their Read All Day (RAD) Program. The RAD program includes various tiers of instruction, grounded on new state standards, student assessments to determine the tier of instruction that best suits each student’s need, and creating a community culture of reading.


The RAD program has resulted in a 24 percent increase in student reading proficiency. Based on 2015 Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium data, English learners exceed state averages by nine percent, socio-economically disadvantaged students exceed state averages by 11 percent and special education students exceed state standards by 18 percent.




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 who consistently demonstrate Common sense, Accountability, Respect, and that Everyone matters (C.A.R.E.). As a Positive Behavior Intervention and Support (P.B.I.S.) Silver Level school, our students, staff, and families are united in providing Kaiser students with a foundation for success as students and young people in an ever-changing world.


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 21st century global citizens who C.A.R.E.! As we progress through the year, you can anticipate hearing and seeing more and more evidence of C.A.R.E. at Kaiser! When on campus, be sure to take a peek at our C.A.R.E. tree mural on the back of the library!


Spotlight on Safety


What a wonderful start of the school year we have had! Coach Williams provided handball lessons to all Kaiser Knights and we are seeing happy, safe students on the courts! Sixth-grade ambassadors presented schoolwide expectations presentations grounded in Common sense, Accountability, Respect, and Everyone matters (C.A.R.E.). We moved to having one entry point for students in the morning and providing supervision beginning at 7:50 at the school gate. We have lots to celebrate!

Since we are on the topic of safety, here are a few points for parents:

  1. Students with wheels (bikes, scooters, etc.) must wear helmets and must walk their bikes, etc. on campus. Thank you to the Kaiser mom who lent a student a helmet last week! We don’t know who you are but really appreciate your support of student safety!
  2. In the parking lots - hug the curb when dropping off and picking up! Please do not drive around other cars or create a double line entering the parking lot. Please do not leave your car unattended in the lot unless you park in a parking space. We want to be sure no student gets hit by a car and that we don’t have collisions in the parking lots! As soon as your student is in your car, please exit the parking lot carefully.
  3. School gate supervision begins at 7:50. Please do not drop off students to school before that time. We become concerned when we see students before 7:30 at school. Kaiser is such a wonderful community! There’s a great chance that you have a neighbor or friend who can help with morning drop off so you don’t have to leave your child in an unsupervised place.


We have a Kaiser-Woodland Community Safety Meeting scheduled on October 16th from 7:00 - 8:00 PM. Ms. Lewis and I look forward to sharing what we do to make our schools as safe and comfortable places for youngsters learn and grow.


In the meantime, school picture day and other annual milestones are around the corner! More news next week!
