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.
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:
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!
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.
Dr. Carrie Rath, Principal
