Hello KQES Families,
It is hard to believe that summer vacation is quickly coming to an end. I hope you’re enjoying a wonderful, relaxing summer! Summer break is flying by, and has been filled with planning for the coming school year. Those preparations have included the hiring of two new staff members, and changing assignments for several other staff members. Please help us welcome new Tiger Teachers: Meredith Kesling and Nancy Savedge.
Many of our faculty attended professional development this summer and are excited to share new instructional strategies. We are ready to roar!
I am proud to announce that King and Queen Elementary remains Fully Accredited by the state of Virginia! It was the dedication and hard work of everyone that makes high student achievement possible. Under legislation passed by the 2016 General Assembly, schools that have been fully accredited for three consecutive years will be fully accredited for three more years. King and Queen Elementary is one of those recognized schools and has earned the distinction of full accreditation status through 2019. Thank you all!
Back to School Nights will be held on August 30th, for grades PK-3 and on August 31st, for grades 4-7 from 6:00 – 7:30PM. Class roles will be posted outside of classroom doors. Parents and students will then have the opportunity to visit their classroom, meet the teacher, and drop off school supplies. For your convenience, the cafeteria will be open on both evenings for parents to put money on student lunch accounts. Also, we will have computers in the library for parents to set-up their access to Parent Portal / on-line gradebook, if they have not done so already. Our fabulous PTA will also be on hand to accept membership dues ($5.00) and to sell KQES Spirit wear.
School supply lists are posted on the KQPS website (www.kqps.net) under KQES and are also available at all local Walmart stores. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at 804-785-5830. I’d love to hear from you and I am looking forward to another wonderful year with this Tiger community.
One Team, One Mission
Allison Jordan, Principal
