Greetings to all the wonderful
parents of Killian’s outstanding students, the
Leading Lions! It is great to
have all your children back in school and we look forward to an exciting and
productive year of engaging them in learning experiences that will help them to
learn at the highest level. Throughout
the year, you will be invited to be a part of the school’s TEAM (Together Each
Achieves More) as we work together “Preparing Tomorrow’s
Leaders…Today!” Teachers will be asking you to provide information
about your child in order to better meet their needs, and you might be asked to
come in and talk with the teacher if additional information is needed. We hope
you will be available as we work to strengthen the home-school relationship
while educating children.
A number of events will be
planned throughout the school year to involve families in the life of the
school. Therefore, we are asking parents to please join the PTO and support its
efforts to provide activities and funds to facilitate the work we do with
students. With that in mind, our first
event for the year is our Grandparents’ First Friday Breakfast which will be Friday,
September 5th at 7:30 AM. All grandparents are invited to attend.
Students have been given a form to be completed and returned to the homeroom
teacher. Also, on Saturday, September 6th, we will have our Killian
Kick-Off from 11:00 AM until 2:00 PM on the school grounds. A number of fun and very family –oriented
activities are being planned for your enjoyment. More information will be
forthcoming regarding this event. This will be a great time for families and
school faculty and staff to spend renewing acquaintances and enjoying each
other’s company. We hope you will attend!
We have changed our afternoon car
rider procedures in order to expedite time. All car riders will report to the
outside at 2:50. We ask parents to pull as far
forward as possible in order to move the car rider line from Clemson
Road and to quickly load each student.
Again, our PTO has already begun
working for the school’s benefit this year. Many of you joined them during the
school orientation. Additionally, there are many opportunities and needs for
parent volunteers. If you are able to volunteer an hour or maybe more, we
invite you to inform your child’s teacher or contact the PTO board members.
Your presence and assistance will be greatly valued and appreciated. Thank you for
all the ways you support our efforts at Killian. Thank you for your support.
We look forward to a most
rewarding and successful year at Killian Elementary where as a TEAM,
we are “Preparing Tomorrow’s
