Kelso families, thanks so much for making sure your students were in attendance for our first week of school.  There were many smiling faces in the building and I constantly heard students saying how they were loving being back at school.  But the highlight of the week was when we were able to go outside for recess on Friday.  Both kids and adults loved being outside in the clear, smoke-free air.  We had another challenge this week with buses getting through road construction and busy highway traffic.  Thanks for your patience as the transportation department worked through issues regarding the bus routes.

The theme of the month at Kelso is “Starting Strong/Staying Strong.”  Teachers will be looking to give caught ya’s to  students who consistently show how to “try, try again.”  Please reinforce this at home when you see students showing perseverance.  Thanks so much.
