Principal's Welcome

Dear King Science Families,


Let me be the first to welcome you to King Science & Technology Magnet where we have highly effective teachers with high performing students that are leading the way in science and technology.  I am very proud of our dedicated staff and enthusiastic learners, and I’m pleased that you have chosen our school for your child’s education.

 

As demands of teaching children increase, it becomes more evident that we all need to work together to ensure that our children reach their fullest potential. I believe that all of us- the families, staff and community must work together as an extended family to ensure success for all our students. It’s our responsibility to empower children with the creative, intellectual, and decision-making skills necessary for them to become academically, socially, physically, and emotionally successful. 

 

With that in mind, you are invited to be an active participant at King Science. Whether you are a member of PTA, volunteer or a special event participant, you are encouraged to be involved! Increasing parent involvement in our school is a high priority for me in the coming year. Educational research clearly demonstrates that when parents/guardians are more involved in their child’s education the child’s likelihood for academic success greatly increases. 

 

One of our most important responsibilities to you is that we keep you informed of all that is taking place at the school. One of the ways we will do this is by regularly updating our school website where you will find our bi-weekly newsletter about everything you need to know. You can find up-to-date events, classroom photographs, and additional information in our bi-weekly newsletter. Other communication tools that we use are Facebook, Twitter and Instagram so please follow us at ops_kingscience.

 

The following are a few things you can do to support your child’s experience and academic growth at King Science:

1.     Ensure that your child arrives to school every day, on time, and is ready to participate and learn.  Every minute counts! Research show that students who attend school 95% or more during the school year will perform better academically!

2.     Encourage your child to demonstrate his or her best inside and outside of school and get involved in everything King Science & Technology have to offer. Go Wildcats!

I look forward to having a long and rewarding relationship with you and your family.

 

 Sincerely,

 Dr. Carrie Rath, Principal
