News from Mr. V February 6, 2024

Dear KHA Families,

Happy 100th Day of School!  See below for some important updates.
Valentine’s Day ♥️
As a reminder, only non-food items are to be sent in with any Valentine’s Day cards next week. 
Report Cards ✅
After months and months of revamping from a team of teachers this year (insert round of applause here), our new and improved report cards are done and will be coming home on Friday! Many thanks to those of you who were able to provide valuable feedback last year. To that end, please look for a survey coming home early next week for another feedback opportunity.  
SEL Family Workshop 👪
As mentioned last week, we are pleased to announce that we are hosting a 5-week Conscious Discipline Parent Workshop (see flier below).  If you are planning to attend, please register by clicking HERE by February 27th.  Note that there is a schedule change from my previous email and the first date is now March 5th.  
State Testing Season 💻
State testing for students in Grades 3-5 is approaching relatively quickly.  For planning purposes, I wanted to get the dates out to you sooner rather than later.  As a small school, it is imperative that we have 100% participation, so please make every effort to have your child(ren) present.  See below for the dates.
  • April 4th and 5th – 5th Grade ELA RICAS
  • April 8th and 9th – 4th Grade ELA RICAS
  • April 10th and 11th – 3rd Grade ELA RICAS
