King Street School 60th Anniversary Celebration

On December 18, we celebrated the 60th Anniversary of King Street School.  Former students, PTA members, and staff were on hand to celebrate with us.  We turned back the clock to 1954, learning about the time period and even dressing 50s style.  The chorus sang 50s songs and we buried a time capsule to be opened when the school turns 100.  To cap of the event, our guests walked around visiting classrooms and talking with our students about what the school was like when they were here.  

Veterans Day Breakfast

On November 10, we held our annual Veterans Day Breakfast.  We honored over 30 veterans in our community, thanking them for their service with a rose during the ceremony. This year, our entire school wore poppies to honor our veterans.  Many thanks to our school PTA for coordinating this beautiful event.  

Parent Math Night

After receiving consistent feedback from parents who were struggling to support students at home, we held our first school-wide Math Night for parents during the first week of November. Teachers presented the cornerstones of our math program at each grade level, as well as, provided parents with resources they could use to help their child at home.

Fire Safety at KSS

On October 24, the Port Chester Fire Department presented to our kindergarten, first and second graders about fire safety.  They taught the students how to be safe and what to do in case of an emergency.  Afterward the students went outside and to see the fire trucks and all the different equipment the fire department uses first hand.  Thanks to the PCFD for coming out and doing a great job!!!

Tamarack Tower Foundation Grant Award

Once again, KSS received a very generous grant from the Tamarack Tower Foundation.  The funds were put toward the purchase of materials and manipulatives to support our math curriculum.  We thank the Tamarack Tower Foundation for their ongoing support. 

National Arts in the School Day

On Tuesday, October 14, King Street celebrated National Arts in the School Day, an event started by the Port Chester Council for the Arts that aims to highlight the critical role of the arts as an educational tool.  We started the day with a presentation by resident Port Chester artist Brigitte Loritz.  Brigitte displayed her artwork for students and shared the story of how she became an artist.  Students then went back to their classrooms where their teachers had planned fun arts based learning activities.  Students were encouraged to display their work in the main hallway next to Brigitte’s. 

International Walk to School Day at KSS

On October 8, KSS celebrated International Walk to School Day, an event aimed building awareness around the benefits of walking to school.  196 students participated.  We thank our local politicians and community friends who showed up to cheer us on!  Click here for more details.
