May Parent Newsletter


Good Evening KNE Families,

     It is hard to believe this is our last newsletter this year!  It is May!  This is an incredibly busy month here at KNE as well as at your house I’m sure!  Please make sure you are signed up for School Messenger through the district website.  I will send out many text reminders in the coming weeks.

     Along with May comes MAP Testing for our 3rd & 4th grade students.  This is their opportunity to show what they know on our state assessment.  We are ready & excited!  Parents, please try to reschedule any appointments during MAP Testing, May-12.  Please also help your child get a good night’s sleep and get to school on-time.  We will be serving all 3rd & 4th grade students breakfast on testing days as well.   We also have some wonderful incentives for effort, attendance and achievement!  

     Next week, May 1-5 is Teacher Appreciation Week!  PTO & KNE will be doing some great things to show how much we care for our special teachers.  It would be a great time to have your child write their teacher a note, draw a picture or say a BIG THANK YOU FOR ALL THEY DO EACH DAY!        

   Don’t forget about summer school, it will be here before you know it!   Summer School Dates will be, May 30th- June 23rd.  Student hours 8-3:45 with bus transportation provided.  Students will receive $100 for perfect attendance.  We are also excited to share, free breakfast & lunch for all students, they also earn a Big Scoops $2 gift card and are entered for the Sonic $5 weekly drawings now!  We have weekly field trips and giveaways, and creative curriculum delivered by brilliant KNE Teachers & it’s only 19 days!!!! 

     We are also EXTREMELY EXCITED, 1st & 2nd grade students are getting their laptops!  Students will start using their devices each day in the classrooms, similar to 3rd and 4th grade classrooms!

        I encourage feedback!  Anything I can do to improve communication or family involvement please let me know!  My email is or you can call 660-563-3019 Ext 2501.

Have a wonderful weekend & thanks for all you do!         

Sincerely, Mrs. Mellon
