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!


The Good, the Better, and the Best


This was an auspicious week at Kaiser!


I was touched by the kindness of strangers who helped a Kaiser student who crashed his bike and broke his wrist on the way home from school earlier this week.


Seeing the hundreds of Kaiser students (and awesome parents, too!) who enthusiastically participated in national Walk-to-School-Wednesday reminded me of the special community we have at Kaiser. In addition to promoting movement, benefits included building positive relationships with local police officers, and spending non-school time with super-cool teachers while cruising the neighborhood! Kaiser has been selected two years in a row to participate in this special event because of our spirited participation - yay!


It’s my hope that our Kaiser families know how much I value your input. It was because of caring and patient Kaiser parents that we now have a second entry to campus on 21st Street in the mornings. It’s my added hope that by opening this gate some of our recent traffic congestion will be reduced and the north parking lot will be accessible by our school buses in the morning. One of the many things I love about our school is how responsive families are. When you become aware of an area of challenge, you rise to the situation to help the cause. Thank you!


Two of Kaiser’s fantastic teachers presented to parents and students at Thursday evening’s Parent Technology Information Night. They provided a handy “cheat sheet.” Extra bright orange copies are in the office. If you’d like one, please stop by!


Then, of course, was the student who asked me what my favorite kind of chocolate is - whose heart isn’t going to melt with that?!


You get to decide what was good, better, and best this week! I look forward to seeing you at next week’s Community Safety Meeting in the MPR on October 16th! Have a wonderful weekend!
