Dear Kawas Families,
With the second semester well under way, we want to thank everyone for their continued support of our students, teachers, and school as we collectively strive to provide optimal opportunities for learning each and every day. In addition, we want to also welcome our new families to Kawas and trust that they will find themselves part of an outstanding and supportive learning community.
In regards to February events, many of our students will participate in the WBCA parades and festivities. Over the past few weeks, our teachers and computer teachers have worked together to provide our students with several practice opportunities while reviewing the expectations for the various types of writing that will be required as part of the assessment. We are encouraged that our students are well-prepared based on their writing instruction and experiences along with the keyboarding practice that has been built upon since the earlier grades.
On February 16th notes will go home with students to notify parents that there will be no school on Friday, February 17th in observance of Presidents’ Day and on Monday, February 20, 2017 due to Staff Development for all Laredo ISD employees. Classes for students will resume on Tuesday, February 21st.
On another note, our 5th grade National Elementary Honor Society students will begin to accept canned goods to continue feeding the hungry in our community.
In closing, we want to thank our families for their diligence in having their children at school on-time and well-prepared for learning each day. In addition, please continue to be mindful that our students’ academic day continues until dismissal each afternoon and it is very important that students are not dismissed early unless an unavoidable appointment or emergency is involved, as valuable instruction from the teacher can be missed in addition to required assignments. As always, thank you for supporting the wonderful teaching and learning taking place here at Kawas!
Ms. V. Ortegon, Principal
