The Ice Cream Social Is On! . . . Inside!

After looking at the weather situation, we've decided to move the ice cream social inside King School this evening. 

What you need to know:

1.  Arrive no earlier than 6 PM, please.  The fun tonight ends at 8 PM.

2.  No Parking In Front Of King School.  Drop off in front of school is fine, but plans to park on Waldenwood Drive.

3.  Check in at the front doors (same place we checked in during the Silent Auction)

4.  Games will be in the school hallways

5.  The moonwalk and cakewalk will be in the multipurpose room

6.  Food and drinks in the gym (and the gym only, please)

Students will be excited tonight, I'm sure.  Our indoor setup tonight may require greater parent awareness of where children are and supervision of children than during previous ice cream social events.  It might help if you remind your children that Mr. Karr expects them to have excellent behavior tonight.  Thank you for your help.

Sincerely,

Kevin

Ice Cream Social Reminders

Dear King Families,

I am looking forward to the ice cream social tomorrow evening.  I hope you'll be able to attend--rain or shine--beginning at 6 PM.

Parking:  As always, no parking in the front of King School.  The front drive is for drop-off only. Please plan to park on Waldenwood Drive.

Safety: 
1.  In case of severe weather, either move inside the school to an area away from windows (music room, interior corridors, bathrooms.
2.  I am asking parents watch children carefully this evening.  Last year, non-King student behavior was unruly, and it resulted in a King student being hurt.  Thank you.

See you tomorrow - wearing Maize and Blue!
Kevin

Mr. Karr's May Newsletter Article

May 2011
 
Dear King Families,
 
As we begin to close this school year, I look back at the last six years I've spent at King School with great fondness.  We've worked very hard to leverage change in areas where change was needed.  In particular our work in classrooms and with families around writing stands out.  In addition, I know the King staff and the School Improvement Team has supported learning strategies that support learning for all students – including students who have struggled in any given subject area.  Looking over the growth that has occurred, I am amazed.  I have a feeling of overwhelming appreciation for the focus on and support of learning that the King community has shown.
 
MEAP Achievement
In case you missed my previous eNotes communication about our MEAP progress at King, here is the current situation based on the fall 2010 MEAP achievement scores.  Reading and math tests are given to all 3rd – 5th grade students, writing is given to only 4th grade students, and science is given to only 5th grade students.  We are very, very proud of King students and how they performed on the test. We analyze the data from the test to help us understand what is needed next in our teaching.
 
3rd Grade
Reading - 96% proficient, 73% advanced
Math - 100% proficient, 84% advanced

4th Grade
Reading - 99% proficient, 70% advanced
Writing - 91% proficient, 42% advanced
Math - 97% proficient, 87% advanced

5th Grade
Reading - 97% proficient, 88% advanced
Math - 99% proficient, 91% advanced
Science - 92% proficient, 78% advanced
 
Based on the 2010 MEAP, Martin Luther King, Jr. Elementary School ranks as the sixth highest scoring elementary school and the twelfth highest scoring school overall in the State of Michigan.  We are a strong school community and these scores are certainly reflective of the commitment that exists from all stakeholders in the community to providing excellence in education.  
 
Thank you to the King staff and parents for their work in supporting our students.  Most of all, congratulations to our students for their fine efforts!!! 
 
Planning For 2011-12
Planning for next school year is in full swing, and this year things are certainly more complex as we come face to face with budget realities.  As I look at next school year at King, I am planning to start the school year with one less teacher than the 2010-11 school year, which is similar to what other Ann Arbor elementary schools are facing as well.  This is a direct impact of the budget complexities the district is—and has—been facing.  However, it is not clear exactly how this will impact the grade configurations at King.  As we move through the summer months, I will keep a close eye on enrollment.  Ultimately, the number of students enrolled in each grade for next year will determine what changes are necessary.  As in the past, you can expect a letter in late August with important information about the start of school including class placement information.
 
Ice Cream Social
I'm looking forward to the King School Ice Cream Social on June 10!  I hope all King families will plan to attend this annual end of the school year celebration.  Former King families are also invited provided older children act with the Lifelong Guidelines and Lifeskills in mind.
 
Sincerely,
Kevin Karr

Ice Cream Social Volunteers and Goodies for Cakewalk Needed!

Hello everyone!  Just a reminder that the Ice Cream Social is this Friday, June 10th from 6-8.  We are in desperate need of volunteers (esp for the games).  If we don't have enough volunteers for the games, we'll have to cancel some of them:(  All the games are super easy to run and this is the best part of the social for the kids!

Please sign up for one or more jobs at:  http://doodle.com/y3iyyq85tixs7db5

Also, don't forget to bring something for the cakewalk.  I would like to ask every family to bring at least one package of baked goods (cookies, cake, donuts, muffins, cupcakes).  You can make them yourself or store bought is great too!  Just remember to pick up a few when you're out at the grocery store this week.  Drop off items for the cakewalk in the teacher's lounge this Friday, June 10th or bring them straight to the multipurpose room when you arrive at the Ice Cream Social.

Thanks so much!  With everyone helping in some way, we should have a great social:)

This is such a fun annual event!  It's a great way to celebrate all the hard work the kids have achieved for the year.  In addition, this will be our last opportunity to thank Mr. Karr for all that he has done at King.  We will certainly miss him!

We hope to see you all thereJ

As the end of year approaches, please note that the LAST DAY for King students to check out books will be Friday, June 3.  

Please help your child return all library books by Monday, June 13.  

Reminder reports will be sent home on colored paper if your child needs to return anything---check those backpacks, or feel free to email me at okeefea@aaps.k12.mi.us if you have questions or concerns.  We DO make mistakes here sometimes with 400+ kids and thousands of books, so don't hesitate to contact me!

It is always my wish that children don't get overly upset about lost books--please reinforce the idea that borrowing books brings us much more joy in life than it does stress!  No one is in trouble, we can always work things out.  

Thanks for your support,
Mrs. Ann O'Keefe

Mr. Karr's Assignment for 2011-12

Dear King Families,
As I read over what you received from the district offices this afternoon, I want to clarify and share that my new assignment will be as principal of Mitchell Elementary School in Ann Arbor.  It will be an exciting and challenging assignment . . . and one I look forward to.

That said, I have loved my time at King School.  The staff,  parents, and students have been wonderful.  I couldn't have been a luckier principal over the last six years.  It is, frankly, very difficult to leave and a bit emotional as well.  I deeply appreciate the work we've done at King.  It has been exciting and rewarding and is a time I will always recall fondly.

As you know, Mrs. Kathy Morhous, most recently principal of Burns Park, will be coming to King for 2011-12.  She is an excellent principal and one that I think the King community will embrace.

I look forward to seeing all of you at the King School Ice Cream Social on June 10 if not sooner.
Sincerely,
Kevin

Space Camp Update
Each year our fifth grade families and teachers work together to decide whether or not we'll be able to send our fifth grade students to Space Camp in Huntsville, Alabama.  This year teachers were willing to sponsor the experience and parents supported having students attend as well as financial support.  We are approaching the time when students "blast off" for Space Camp at midnight on Sunday, May 22.  You might enjoy following the 2011 Space Camp mission on the Space Camp Website:

Time to enroll new families :-)

Hello MLK Families,
I am writing to request your help.  If you know of a family who will be new to King School for next year, would you please help me and remind them to come to school to enroll at their earliest convenience.
If you encounter questions that you cannot answer, I am happy to help.  Feel free to ask the family to call the school office or email me directly.
Sincerely,
Kevin Karr
