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.

From the Principal

October continues to be a month filled with exciting learning activities and fun community events here at King Street School.  On October 8, we celebrated Walk to School Day.   We thank our community friends and elected officials who came out to cheer us on.   On October 14, we celebrated National Arts in the School Day.  The students participated in an art assembly and the teachers prepared art based learning activities for students back in the classroom.  You can see their  artwork on display around the school.    
If you havenít heard already, King Street School has a new mascot, ROARy.  The students named ROARy after our school motto ROAR, which stands for Respect, Out of harmís way, Acting responsibly, and Remembering kindness.  ROARy made his first official school appearance at Walk to School Day.  He rode to great fanfare on Port Chester Fire Department Engine 62, and the kids were super excited to meet him.  I hear he was also spotted at the Port Chester Columbus Day Parade. 
In an effort to provide the community with more information about KSS, our school website is undergoing some major revisions.  To date, we have added new information about the curriculum, class schedules, the PTA, our music program, and more.  Please check it out and feel free to provide us with feedback and suggestions.    
King Street School welcomes some new staff members.  Lydia Cacsire and Genesis Marte join us as teacherís aides and Jeanette Deleo joins us as a lunch monitor.  We are also thrilled to welcome back Stevie Williams to our school community.  Stevie was our security guard last year and quickly became an invaluable member of our community. He joins us this year as a lunch monitor.
