Letter From Suzanne Godin

 Dear Parents and Guardians:

 I am happy to announce the School Department has received the Department of Education School Improvement Grant to support Kaler School for the next three years.  As you are aware, there are a number of changes that are planned for Kaler School.

 The first change is the move of Ms. Lang to Small School and Ms. Hicks to Kaler School.  I’d like to take this opportunity to again recognize Ms. Lang for her commitment and dedication to the Kaler School community over the past seven years.  Her passion for education has helped Kaler students, staff, and community develop a strong caring environment.

 I also want to welcome Ms. Hicks to the Kaler School community.  Her enthusiasm for the challenges ahead will help steer Kaler School through the changes that are coming and continue to focus attention on increasing student achievement.

 Another change is the lengthened school day for students and staff.  After much conversation and deliberation we have finalized the school day as 8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.  This change is in recognition of parent and staff input as well as supportive of our transportation department resources.  Bus schedules will be developed over the summer and shared with parents in late August.  Please plan on the 8:30-3:30 schedule starting in September.

 The grant will also provide multiple extended day and extended year opportunities.  Many of our Kaler students have received invitations to participate in this summer’s extended year programs.  We will be able to provide bussing for all afterschool and extended year services.

 Finally, one of the major components of the grant is the centralization of community resources for parents and families right at Kaler School.  We will again be hosting Sweetser Social Work services and will expand next year to include Spurwink Case Management Services, a Community Facilitator and a Parent Liaison to support parents and families.

 We are very excited about the opportunities that are in place for the next three years.  Please feel free to contact Ms. Hicks this summer at hicksbo@spsd.org if you have questions or concerns.

 Have a great summer and we’ll see you in September!

 

Sincerely,

Suzanne T. Godin, Superintendent
