Dear Kinney Families,
I am excited to report that we are ready for an outstanding year! I hope this letter finds you rested, or at the very least, eager to work towards your graduation. I am very proud of the 37 graduates we had this past school year.
With our WASC (Wester Association of Schools and Colleges) accreditation visit successfully behind us, we will focus much of our energy this year on determining what we are all about and what is important to us as a learning community. This will require input from students, families, and staff. One thing we do know is that to graduate we must be present, positive, and productive even when doing so seems difficult.
As we sadly said goodbye to Mr. Smith and Ms. Bedi, we welcome Ms. Bamford (Social Studies) and Mr. Kalmer (Math.) We also welcome Mr. Duncan as our new Metals teacher! I would also like to welcome our new school psychologist, Karey Spivey. We will have some new incentives this year and some slightly new rules regarding dress code and cell phones. No need to worry, the changes are reasonable and will be explained thoroughly.
I still like to say that just because we choose a different path, does not mean we are lost. You have many adults on this campus who are here to nurture, challenge, and support you. This includes me! I hope that I have proven that I have an open door policy and that I deeply care for each one of my students.
I urge you to review your student handbooks and request one if needed. Clear expectations are outlined in this handbook as are all changes to expectations. It is a great resource as we move through the year.
Please mark your calendars as the first day of school is fast approaching. Students are to return to school on MONDAY, August 12th. School starts promptly at 9:00 but students are urged to arrive on time to see the posted first period classes. Students will then receive their schedules in first period. The back to school assemblies will be held Thursday, August 15th. Finally, we hope you all join us for Back to School Night on August 29th from 5:30-7:30 p.m. There will be introductions, food, and tours. You will not want to miss it.
Wishing you all a fantastic school year! Thank you for making this such a special place!
