    Good evening 8th-grade students and parents this is Mr. W, principal of Kiser Middle, with reminder and directions for the 8th grade Drive-Thru Recognition. 

     

    The 8th-grade Drive-Thru recognition will be on Monday, June 8th from 11 am-2 pm. 

     

    Parents should come down Campus Drive from Josephine Blvd and turn right into our driveway.  The line will be one continuous line that will begin through the front circle.  Along the front circle under the awning, students will drop off any school items they need to return.  Students should return textbooks, media center's books, borrowed instruments, etc…  At this time, students may keep the tablet device, unless you know you are leaving GCS we will collect those tablets as you come through the line.  Also, anyone who wishes to donate their SMOD clothes we ask that you have those in a plastic bag, and ready to drop off. 

     

    You will proceed through the front circle and loop around to the back where car riders are dropped off in a single file line.  Students will pick up their promotion packet which will include their promotion certificates, academic awards, yearbooks, and school pictures.  We will have several different carts labeled with the first letter of the student’s last name.  If your student had items in their locker, it will be given at this location as well.

     

    After you receive the promotion packet you will pull around the car rider loop back toward the driveway leading down to the traffic light.  Along the back on your way out the PTA will have a table set up to present a gift to each 8th-grade student. 

     

    Finally, our staff will be wearing gloves and masks, and we ask that all students and parents remain in your vehicles as you are coming through the line.  I know students will be excited to see their teachers, and their friends; however, it is important to stay in the vehicle and keep moving through so we can efficiently recognize all our students.  If everyone comes through we will have 330 8th grade students to recognize!!    

     

    If you can’t make it through the line on Monday, the items will be available for pick on Tuesday from 8 am – 5 pm.  Students will be allowed to come into the cafeteria with no more than 10 students in the building at one time.  After Tuesday parents and students should make arrangements with the office to schedule a pickup time. 

     

    Thank you, and looking forward to seeing everyone on Monday!

    Good evening Tigers this is Mr. W, principal of Kiser Middle School, with several announcements for the upcoming week.

     

    Any rising 7th and 8th-grade student who is interested in taking American Sign Language (ASL) as an encore for the 2020-2021 school year should contact Mrs. Ingram.  We have some spots still available.

     

    8th Grade drive-thru promotion recognition will be on Monday, June 8th from 11-2pm.  We look forward to seeing and all our 8th-grade students and families as they come through and get recognized. 

     

    The 6th and 7th-grade students will have an opportunity to come and drop off media center items, textbooks, instruments, and any other item they may have.  At this time, students do not need to return a GCS laptop device unless you are planning to leave the district.  The students will pick up their items which will be located in the cafeteria including yearbooks and school pictures, and also make sure they have cleaned out their gym/PE locker.  We will allow 10 students to enter at a time in order to quickly drop off and gather their items.  All students should enter the building from the car rider line entrance. 

     

    The district is seeking feedback for the 2020-2021 academic calendar.  Please keep in mind that plans and decisions for how next school year will look are still ongoing, but the NCDPI mandated all schools will begin on August 17th next year and must include a certain number of remote learning days, so GCS has slightly adjusted its previously approved academic calendar. 

     

    The final report cards for students will be mailed on June 15th.

     

    Finally, a reminder for our parents to complete the parent survey on remote learning and also the 2020 Census.

     

    Thank you, and have a great evening.

    Good Afternoon 

     

    First, I want to express my gratitude and appreciation for all that you do for our school community and students throughout the entire year, but especially now!  I know now more than ever, everyone is seeing first hand just how complex and difficult it can be to be a teacher, and the many different roles you play in our student’s lives.  In order to express my appreciation, next week A Worthy Taste will be set up for a drive-through pick up lunch for staff between 10:30-12:30pm.  As you come through to pick up your lunch, we also have a special basket with several goodies and gifts to show our appreciation, including something from our PTA.  I know we could never provide something that could equal the value we have for each one of you, but I hope you accept this token on behalf of the administration here at Kiser as our way of letting you know how great you are!  Thank you!

     

    As many of you are aware the state adjusted the grading guidance, and so our district has also provided more information in regards to final grades for our students.  I have attached that information to email for you to review.  Please, do not spend a considerable amount of time stressing over this guidance.  Our priority is to continue to engage and encourage students to complete work, so they will not be so far behind as they move on next year. 

     

    We are still working through the plans for how the staff will close out the school year, but it was clear this week in my principal meeting that we still need to minimize the number of visitors and staff and in the building.  Please continue to limit your visits to getting materials, resources, and things for distance learning.  We will provide more information about packing up, cleaning, and closing out the year in order to keep everyone as healthy and safe as possible. 

     

    Finally, I want to say Happy Mother’s Day to everyone.  I hope each of you enjoy your special day! 

     

    Thank you.

    Week of3/30/2020
     

    Good evening Tigers this is Mr. W, principal of Kiser Middle, with a few important announcements.

     

    First, I want to thank all our parents, teachers, staff, and other personnel who have worked tremendously hard to make sure students have their materials and devices for distance learning. 

     

    I know we are venturing into something completely new, and I appreciate everyone’s flexibility and patience as we work through the learning process together. 

     

    By now we have completed the first week of distance learning, and all students should start to get into their daily routines for completing assignments, responding to discussion boards, and submitting assignments.  It is important to remember that just because you are not coming to school every day, we have the same high expectations for your conduct online and completing your assignments. 

     

    The state is still in the process of making decisions about the 3rd grading period and how grading will proceed going forward, but you still need to do your best work and prepare yourself for the next grade level.

     

    GCS has announced that the week of April 6th through the 10th will remain as spring break with no distance learning during that week.

     

    If you have questions or need help with your device the best way to reach the school is by emailing me directly at wohlgee@gcsnc.com.  Due to the stay order for Greensboro all school and central offices will be closed to the public, and we will make arrangements as best we can to get families and students devices, etc…

     

    This past week we received the refund check for the 8th-grade field trip, and so parents should start to receive their refund checks in the mail.  If you have not submitted a refund form please be sure to visit the Kiser Homepage and email it to Mrs. Jackson. 

     

    Finally, be sure to monitor the GCS website for updates on additional feeding sites and locations to access hotspots. 

     

    Thank you, and everyone continue to stay safe and we miss you all!    

     
     
    Message for Week of  3/16/2020

    Good evening Tigers this is Mr. W, principal of Kiser Middle, with some important information about the upcoming weeks.

    First, as many of you are already aware this past Saturday the governor of North Carolina signed an executive order that required the closing of all public schools from March 16th until March 27th. 

    Monday, March 16th Kiser will be open to parents from 9:30-11:30 am and 2-4 pm for students to collect their backpacks, belongings, books, medications, and other items during the closure.  Please be patient as we are also not permitted to have more than 100 people gathered in one place.  The office will have sign-in forms at the front office for parents to sign in.  Please be sure to sign in as those who do not come we will be contacted with an alternative way to get to school.  It will also be important that each student indicate whether they have a tablet, laptop, or desktop computer with internet access at home in order to access Canvas. 

    Beginning on Monday, March 23rd the teacher will begin to provide distance learning through Canvas.  Middle school students should be familiar with how to log in and access Canvas as we frequently use this for assignments and assessments throughout the year.  The district is working on a plan to help provide a device to families who may need one, but devices will not be available tomorrow. 

    The district will also have online resources on the GCS homepage and will update its website daily with important information. 

    The district will also be working with local partners to provide meals for our students who qualify for free/reduced lunch or are in homeless shelters.  The meal services will begin on Wednesday.

    Please use the following number as a help hotline number; 336-332-7290.

    Finally, please be patient with us as we work through this challenging time.  I hope everyone stays safe, and please be sure to practice social distancing in order to keep our community safe.  Please do not hesitate to email me if you have any questions or need assistance. 

    Thank you, and please know that we are here to help in any way.
