Friday, August 28 - The Principal's Corner

The Principal’s Corner


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 Leaders…Today!”


Dr. Robert Scotland, Principal​
