Welcome to the new school year! I debated whether or not to start my message out with the old cliché, “I can’t believe how quickly the summer went”, but I am really amazed at how quickly the summer days have come and gone. It has been a real treat to interact with your students throughout the summer. The OST Program, ELL Camp, MAYA classes, and ESY services have brought several students in to and out of Koch Elementary this summer. In addition, the second year of the free summer meal program was a huge success. In all reality, Koch Elementary was the hub for many of our youth this summer. We are fortunate to be able to provide fun learning opportunities for our students throughout the summer!!

As we gear up for the beginning of a new school year, I would ask you and your students to think about what your family’s goals will be for the upcoming school year. We know that the school year will progress just as quickly as the summer has. If we start off the school year on a positive, prepared foundation, it will be possible for your students to meet their learning goals. Our school philosophy (on the next page) should be a guide for you to use at home as well. Let’s team up to reach the ultimate goal of preparing our students to become productive, responsible members of home, community, and society while leading personally rewarding lives.
In my opinion, open and ongoing communication is a must in order for us to reach the common goal stated above. To start the year off right, please join us for Open House at Koch
Elementary on Wednesday, August 15th from 4:00-6:00. If you will be unable to make it, please give us a call so we can inform the appropriate teacher(s).
1,2,3 Team!
