Principal's Connect Ed Message

Good evening Tigers this is Mr. W, principal of Kiser Middle School, with several announcements for the upcoming week.Parents, it has been a challenging restart after our winter break here at Kiser. It is important that in order to keep our school and community safe we need all our students to be making good decisions, working hard, and treating those around us with respect. Parent, please take time each day to remind your students of our expectations so we can continue to learn and grow each day. Also, thank you to all those students who do utilize the opportunity each day to make good choices and demonstrate their Kiser Pride it does not go unnoticed.
Monday, January 16th the school and office will be closed in observance for MLK Day. We encourage our students and families to reflect on the life of Martin Luther King Junior and how we can continue to honor his legacy and dream for the pursuit for justice and equality for all people.
Students will continue to take their GCS interim benchmark assessment #2 during their core classes this upcoming week. Please encourage your student to do their best work, as the information and data is used to determine concepts students have mastered and how to provide ongoing support for our students.
