World Read Aloud Day

World Read Aloud Day was fabulous! We had two very special guests share a read aloud book with all our students, Mrs. Micky Ogburn, HCPS Three Chopt School Board representative, and Shannon Hyman, HCPS Library Specialist. Thank you for sending in your read aloud pictures! Once I obtain permission from all families to share the powerpoint, then I will be adding it to our school’s website. I was overwhelmed with how the powerpoint truly represented our KES community and how our families support reading! I want the whole world to see that Kaechele coyotes are readers!! Thank you for your support this month as we read aloud in classrooms and at home!

Parent/Teacher Conferences

Winter Parent Conferences are scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 7th from 2:30-6:00 PM. Knowing that teacher/parent communication occurs throughout the school year, it may not be necessary for you to conference with your child’s teacher at this time. However, if you would like to schedule a conference time, our school will again use Sign Up Genius as a tool for scheduling appointments. A School Messenger message will be sent out Tuesday, Jan 29th with the specific information for scheduling an appointment to meet with your child’s teacher on Feb. 7th.

Car Drop off/Pick Up

Now that the weather is getting colder, many of you may choose to bring your child to school in the morning. Please make sure you review our procedures for morning drop off to ensure that the drop off process is safe and efficient for all involved.  

7:20 AM begins the drop off period, and students should not be released from the car until an adult has arrived for duty.

  • Students should exit and enter from the vehicle’s passenger side only.
  • Our car rider area is a “no cell phone” zone.  Please give your full attention to our procedures during drop off and pick up times.
  • Cars should pull up to the designated drop off/pick up area.  Other cars should follow the same procedure so that all designated drop off and pick up areas are being used at the same time.  Fifth grade safety patrol students and school personnel will be available in the car rider area to assist in ensuring that students being dropped off or picked up are safe.  Safety patrol students will not open and close car doors.
  • Parents should take care of all notes, last-minute plans and “fond farewells” before arriving at school and be ready to pull away in the afternoon as soon as possible.
  • If parents have a need to extend their time with their child, they may pull into a space in the parking lot and then walk their child to the door. Children must never be dropped off or picked up in the parking lot and should never walk in the parking lot alone.

If you live within the “bus riding zone” rather than bringing your child to school on inclement weather days, an alternative would be to drive to the bus stop and wait there for the bus.

Winter Attire

Please be advised it is an expectation that KES students go outside for recess everyday. Please keep this in mind when your child dresses for the school day. All students should come to school with the appropriate coats, hats, gloves, shoes, etc. to play outside each day. Students are not allowed to stay inside during recess time. If there are specific medical needs, and you are concerned that your child is unable to go outside, then please send in a doctor’s note to our school nurse, Ms. Mlynczak. She will follow up with you and with the classroom teacher regarding the medical need. If you have questions or concerns about this expectation, then please feel free to contact Mr. Buffkin or Mrs. Patterson.

Thank you for your support!

Blue Star Families shipped 90 boxes to deployed servicemen and women. They took several bags of groceries to Liberation Veteran Services, an organization that helps homeless veterans find jobs and places to live. They took snack items like granola bars to the USO at the airport for soldiers traveling during the holiday season. They took snack items, toothbrushes, and toothpaste to the USO at Fort Lee (which processes new incoming soldiers). They shared candy with the Polytrauma Rehabilitation Center at McGuire VA Medical Center. Veterans there suffer from major brain trauma. Our contribution has definitely made a difference!!! Thanks again to all coyotes and our KES families!

We stock our Book Nook with donated books that can be taken for enjoyment and then shared with someone else. You can take a book or leave a book! As you can see our nook is located in the front of our school by the preschool playground. Read, coyotes, read!
