Virtual Family Literacy Night

Thank you to everyone that participated in our first Virtual Family Reading Night on Dec. 3rd, 2020!

Teachers welcomed students and family members via Zoom online for the event’s three separate reading times.  Both non-fiction and fiction books were read aloud. Teachers shared tips about families being able to support our Cougars at home with their A.R. or classroom books.

After listening to a read aloud from teachers, participants were eligible to stop by for a FREE book available for grades K to 5 on a first come, first serve basis. A great time was had by all!!  We are so proud of our Cougars for showing such a love of reading!!

Great American Teach-In

The Great American Teach In was a huge success! Our students asked thoughtful questions and all of our guests were amazing! Even though we could not be face to face, Zoom allowed us to bring some phenomenal people into our school today.
Thanks to all of teachers, students and parents who were flexible and adjusted to this groundbreaking Great American Teach-In at KES!
