Monday, June 08 - The Principal's Corner

The Principal’s Corner

It has been our pleasure getting to know your children and sharing numerous experiences with them throughout the year. They have grown in so many ways, continued to develop their personalities, made new friends, and lived up to numerous challenges and expectations. We, the administrators, faculty and staff are proud to have been a part of their year at Killian. As we send them into the summer, we trust they will continue to read good books, play educational games, spend time with family and friends, and enjoy their summer break. Please remember, students have numerous websites from which they can download books to read. For your convenience, I have included a number of them at the end of this message. Parents, thank you for your support throughout the year and please check the school’s website for updates and information that we will post in the coming months.

Below are the three online book websites we use:

 1. BookFlix is generally used for Kindergarten through 3rd grade.  The website is http://goo.gl/UQI5Y.

 The user name is: Killian.  The password is: Bookflix.

 2. Tumblebooks appeals to all grade levels.  That website is: http://goo.gl/ayF7N. The user name is: richland2.  The password is english.

 Both of these sites have books in more than just English.  Bookflix has material in Spanish and French.  Tumblebooks has online books in those and other languages as well.  There are some nonfiction books on those sites, and opportunities for assessment via quizzes and games.

 3.TrueFlix is a site for grades 3 through 5.  This is a nonfiction online book site. It has many science and social studies books. The website is http://goo.gl/xyfbM. The user name is: richlandsd2.  The password is: trueflix.

Have a great weekend and an enjoyable summer!

 Dr. Robert Scotland,

Monday, June 08 - Summer Reading Bingo

Dear Parents/Guardians,

 To assist students in their efforts to read over the summer, in classes this week we revisited my webpage (http://mediamatters2kids.blogspot.com/).  The page has great links to digital books, online databases, encyclopedias, and literacy games.  If your child forgets the username and password to a site, they need only to click on the Websites link to get that information.

 Please encourage your children to track their reading using the Summer Reading Bingo for the grade they will enter next year.  I will try to get sheets out to teachers this week, but you can always print out a sheet from links provided on the webpage.  Students are to return those sheets by August 28th of the coming school year, as we will have a reading celebration in September.

 Wishing you a fun, restful, and safe summer!

Monday, June 08 - 2015-2016 School Supply List

In our ongoing effort of improving customer service to families and easing the financial burden on parents when possible, a streamlined and standardized supply list has been created for all elementary schools, including Killian Elementary.

You can access the list at:

https://www.richland2.org/content.aspx?id=38712 

Many folks from across the district got together to create this list through a collaborative process that, in the end, we hope will make it easier for our families by being consistent for all grade levels at all schools.

Along with supplies provided by our school, this new list provides the necessary supplies to support instruction in the classroom and move the district away from widely varying lists of supplies that parents were asked to provide in the past. 

If you any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact our front office.
