U4 Studies Teeth!

February is Dental Health Month. In Mrs. Kate Fuhr’s class, the students were able to get a sneak peek into the field with a visit from Mrs. Bowes, a dental hygienist.

Students were able to learn about proper flossing, brushing, and healthy foods for our teeth. Mrs. Bowes brought in the LARGEST set of teeth to floss. Students left with toothpaste, toothbrushes, coloring books , and floss!

We see a few dentists and dental hygienists in this bunch! Thank you for sharing your expertise with U4, Mrs. Bowes!

The Power of Play at MDLKC

Recently, Mrs. Drago (P4), participated in a virtual educational conference called, “The Educator’s Summit.” Through this summit, she learned all about using games you probably have in your home to create new learning experiences. The presenter at the summit, Adam Peterson, encourages educators to re-think those games and add educational flare to them in order to create meaningful learning experiences for students. The games can be used for reading and math! 
As you can imagine, the games are a hit with students at MDLKC! They are learning, practicing, and teaching each other while having fun!

Conferences Begin on Thursday!

If this is your first time experiencing Parent Conferences at KCSD, welcome!

We hope that you enjoy the time you get to spend with your child’s teacher and that your conversation is meaningful. We value your time and appreciate your flexibility in meeting with us. We would like to give you a sneak peek into what a typical conference could look like.
The biggest difference in our conference format is the way we are meeting.

There are 3 options:

1. In person- (in your child’s classroom.)

2. Virtual– At KCSD we use Teams. Please watch this video or use the PDF to help you prepare for the virtual conference.

3. By phone– You will receive a call at the time of your conference. This will be a Kennett number. You will most likely see 610-444-xxxx with Kennett Consolidated.

Most teachers will allow time to go over the the report card including any questions you may have. At the Kindergarten Center, we do not use letter grades. We use numbers that indicate levels of progression to mastery of grade level material. Each area that is assessed will have a number. There are areas that will have an “*.” Those areas will be assessed later in the year.

Our indicators will read as follows:

4- At MDLKC, we do not use 4s. You may see them at the elementary schools.

3- Student consistently demonstrates grade level expectations.

2- Student is beginning to demonstrate grade level expectations.

1- Student rarely demonstrates grade level expectations.

At MDLKC, we have a section on our report card that indicates the letters (upper and lower) and sounds that students have mastered. You will see an “*” there but it means they do not know that letter or sound consistently.

One area that we usually have to explain is “Recites the alphabet.” Most students can sing the alphabet but this skill is asking them to say the letters in order without singing them.

If you have any other questions, write them down and bring them along to your conference! We can’t wait to see you!

Here are a few more tips about conferences:
