A Message from Our Principal

Dear Parents and Students:

It’s hard to believe another school year has come and gone! As I reflect at the end of each school year, I am always amazed at how much we accomplish in a year, and this year was no exception. Our theme for the 2016-2017 was “As a Team We Can Achieve Anything,” and we achieved a lot together. We had our first anti-bullying poster contest where we proudly displayed the winning poster all over campus reminding students the importance of being an up-stander. Our fourth graders took a fieldtrip to the San Luis Mission for the first time in Kohn history and even squeezed in a little beach time at Avila Beach. We also added lots of new playground equipment to our three different playgrounds and our library got an entire new look! Those were just a few of the exciting things we accomplished together throughout the year. 

If you drive by our campus during the summer, you might see some of the great projects that we’ve got going on. Not only is our school getting a much-needed fresh coat of paint, but we are also having our parking lot redone as well as our entire front office. I’m excited to see all of the great, new improvements when we return from summer break!

Looking ahead to the 2017-2018 school year, I’m excited to announce that our theme for the year will be “Kindness Counts at Kohn!” In an effort to make sure that we continue to maintain a positive learning environment for students to grow, not only academically, but socially and emotionally as well, we plan on putting a huge emphasis on students treating each other with kindness. We hope that you will consider purchasing your student a Kohn School t-shirt with our theme printed on it for your student to wear proudly on Fridays. Watch out, as you might even be the recipient of some type of random act of kindness!

Although I’m excited for a little bit of rest and relaxation this summer, I’m even more excited to see everyone back in August for another great year. Don’t forget that the first day of school is August 9! Be sure to check your mail the last week of July for our back-to-school letter that will have important information and dates. You can also check our calendar right here on our website for important dates as well. Enjoy the rest of your summer, and we will see you back in August!
