Although there are mountains of snow still standing, Waylon the Coyote is happy to say that spring is in the air. The sun is shining and the snow is melting slowly but surely. There is lots of water on our playground and mud puddles galore – please ensure your kiddo is dressed for the weather and has a change of clothes with them at all times. I encourage everyone to get out into the fresh air, get some vitamin D and play some spring sports, hopscotch, four square, and brush up on your skipping skills.
Our students have had the privilege to take learning outside the walls of KVMS and take part in various special events. Both elementary and middle school students had a day of winter wellness at Mactaquac, our middle school students went on a ski trip to Crabbe and had a fabulous day of spring skiing, we partnered with KRS and had TNB present at KVMS, many of our students were involved with Partners for Youth activities, and our student leaders had the opportunity to go to the Horizons Leadership Conference at FHS. These are just some of the opportunities that our students have taken advantage of over recent months.
The gym has been bumping with our Middle School Rise and Shine Program where kids had the opportunity to start their day with organized sports and play. This allowed students to network and start their day in a positive environment while being active. Mr. MacDonald and Mrs. Bourgoin have been non-stop with sports for our athletes. We just finished an impressive season of basketball where learning, leadership, bonding, and skill building were at the forefront. It was impressive to see how many students represented KVMS and showed commitment and love for the game. Our middle level boys’ basketball team took on staff and parents to end the season. Both teams played hard with the game ending in a tie. Now the athletics department is moving into volleyball so good luck to our teams!
Our breakfast program is in full swing and many of our students are taking advantage by starting their day off right with a nutritional breakfast. Thank you to our volunteers who dedicate their time and energy and invest in our kids. If you would like to make a donation to our program, we are always looking for items such as Cheez Whiz, bread, canned fruit, bagels, English muffins, fruit bars etc. Any donations can be dropped off at the office. Thanks in advance for your generosity.
Report cards go home on April 11th, 2018. We invite you to our parent conferences which will take place on the evening of April 12th, and the morning of April 13th. It is a great way to connect with your child’s teacher, celebrate achievement, and set academic and social growth goals for the last term of the school year. Thank you for your continued support and dedication to your child’s education. We look forward to meeting with you in the near future.
Our last edition of our KVMS chronicle will be sent home in June. Until then, take time to jump in the puddles, blow some bubbles, and spring into spring – summer is just around the corner!
Until next time…your biggest fan,
Waylon the Coyote
