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.) 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 21stcentury 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!


Music and Bingo in the Air!


Mrs. Hanson, Kaiser’s music, orchestra, band, and chorus teacher, orchestrated this week’s grade-level performances. The MPR was full with students and families. Selections highlighted music connoisseurship along with grade-level topics such as the gold rush. Students were thrilled to share what they have learned and there was a lot of happy toe tapping in the audience. Behind the scenes, Kaiser’s classroom teachers practiced songs with their classes to ensure that their students would shine this week. Culminating moments like this remind us all of the joy of music and its potential to help youngsters to learn. Kudos to Mrs. Hanson and thank you to all the teachers who supported this week’s successful performances!


As we look to the end of the week, I am reminded that it’s BINGO NIGHT! I can’t wait until six o’clock this evening when families arrive for pizza and treats! Your Foundation, which underwrites the salary of Kaiser’s engineering teacher, is hosting tonight’s special event. I look forward to being a “caller” alongside my colleague and friend, Mrs. Lewis, principal at Woodland Elementary School. Thank you to KWSF for organizing this special family event! Thank you to all the Kaiser families attending tonight! It’s going to be GREAT!


On Monday, Kaiser’s sixth graders will clamber onto buses and head to science camp. School will be a little quieter than usual with 25% of our students being in the mountains. For all our parents of 6th graders, you are going to make it! Your kiddos are off to a grand adventure!


It was a wonderful week and we have another one on the way!


P.S. Don’t forget! Friday, 4.13, is the last day to buy a yearbook!
