Our school year is well underway and we have all settled in to our new routines. Students have really picked up their reading pace and are doing very well during RED time. They have looked at ocean creatures in science classes and practiced their measuring in both science and FACS classes. Healthy living is being covered in Health as well as FACS and Physical Education. Our PE classes have been taking advantage of the beautiful weather we have been having and getting outside for class while they learn about soccer. Social Studies classes have been doing geography and looking at where and why people live where they do. All of our classes are presenting our students with intriguing questions as they delve into the course material.
Attendance Being in school all day, every day, helps your child get the most out of middle school. Encourage good attendance with these ideas: 1- point out that there is no substitute for being in class. Your youngster needs to be present to hear teachers explain concepts, to participate in group projects and class discussions, and to ask questions. 2 - Schedule doctor, dentist, and orthodontist appointments for before or after school hours whenever possible. If you can't, try to arrange them for lunchtime. 3 - It will be easier for your child to get up on time for school if he has had at least 9 hours of sleep. Set a reasonable bedtime and make sure electronic devices are put away so that there is no temptation to stay awake to read messages or play games.

Halloween Town is to benefit The Laura Foundation, and serves two purposes. For one, we use the event to raise awareness about our existence… and also, of course, about our mission, which focuses on individuals living with autism and epilepsy. For more information, please check out: ‘www thelaurafoundation.org’
Halloween Town begins at 3PM with the “Halloweenie Walk” (non-scary part of the trail), Kid Carnival, Hot Air Balloon Rides, Dizzy Dragon, and Food Court. The gates of the full Trick-or-Treat Trail open at 4:00PM. The event concludes at 8PM. Halloween Town is a safe and entertaining way to enjoy the holiday. We invite you to join us.

We have instituted a new visitor sign-in protocol to improve security at KMS. You (parents) will now be required to stop by the office upon arrival and sign yourself into our new visitor pass registry book for every visit.
1. Complete both the badge and the "sign out stub" by listing your name, your destination, the date, your initials, and your time of arrival ("time in").
2. Remove the badge and stick it to your clothing in a visible location. Our school staff has been trained to look for badges identifying all visitors to insure our protocols are being followed.
3. Before you leave the building, please return to the office to sign yourself out, locating your initials and sign-out stub. List your departure time ("time out") on the stub and return your badge.
In the event of an emergency, it is critical that everyone in the building be accounted for. Careful and conscientious observation of visitor sign-in/sign-out procedures will better enable the school to ensure the safety of all building occupants, including students, employees, school staff, and visitors.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation and support.
