A Message from Our Principal

Dear Parents and Students:

It’s that time of year again. We're back into the routine of going to bed early! An early bedtime makes it easier to be up and at school on time each morning.  Be sure to refer to your "back to school letter" for early dismissal times or check the calendar of events right here on our website.

There are lots of new and exciting things happening this school year. Our teachers are settled into their new assignments and positions. Mrs. Munk has moved from tk to kindergarten, Mrs. Keller has moved from kindergarten to tk, Mrs. Lardner has moved from 1st grade to 2nd grade, and Mrs. Heller has moved from 3rd grade to 5th grade. We also added three new teachers to our staff which include Mrs. Jablonski and Mrs. Fagundes who have joined our 1st grade team, and Mrs. Copley who has joined our 6th grade team. 

We invite our parents to be involved in your child's education. One way you can do that is to join our parent and teachers’ organization, otherwise known as PTO. Our PTO meets monthly on the second Monday at 6:00 p.m. in our teachers’ lounge. Even if you are unable to attend PTO meetings every month, we encourage you to attend whenever you can.

Safety is of the utmost importance to us here at Kohn School. To help ensure our students’ safety, we ask that you use extreme caution during drop off and pick-up times. Please be sure to only park in designated parking spots. Please do not park near curbs that are painted yellow, as we reserve those areas for busses. Please also do not park near curbs that are painted red, as those are indicated as “no parking” areas. Last but not least, we ask that you respect our neighbors, and be sure not to park on sidewalks or in areas that would block are neighbors in. We would greatly appreciate your support with this!

I would like to officially wish you and your student a great 2017-2018 school year! Don’t forget, if you ever have any questions or concerns, please be sure to contact your child’s teacher or me as soon as those concerns arise. I look forward to another great school year here at Kohn School. Go, Kohn Cobras!
