    Please see the Connect-Ed message that was sent to families on the morning of July 18 regarding the new process for the 2017 Summer Mailing Forms. Please select "Read More" for updates.

    SUBMISSION OF PHYSICAL: You may now upload an electronic copy of a doctor-completed physical form within the Physicians section of the Summer Mailing Forms. If you have already completed your other forms and would now like to upload a physical, please log in to view your summary and select Edit from the drop-down. You may also send it in hard copy to the child's school, or email it to the school's klschools address located in the Contact Information. You do not need to provide it here if it has already been submitted in a 2017-18 Fall Athletics registration.

    STUDENT NAME NOT APPEARING: your student's name will be pre-populated as a participant choice only if he/she has previously participated in HS or MS athletics.

    SECTION SELECTION (the first data-entry field): please select the SECTION that corresponds to the grade level that this PARTICIPANT will be entering in the Fall. If the school and grade level that you need do not appear, then you may have selected the incorrect program for this PARTICIPANT. Please return to the dashboard and enter the full name of the school into the "I want to register for a program at" field.

    FINDING ANOTHER PROGRAM: if you have finished with your John Jay High School 2017 Summer Mailing Forms submission, and would like to next submit your HS athlete's forms for the Athletics Dept, please  return to the dashboard and enter  John Jay Athletics into the "I want to register for a program at:" field.

    UPLOADING A HEALTH APPRAISAL FORM: if you have completed your child’s summer mailing forms, and would like to go back in to upload his/her Health Appraisal Form (required for grades K, 2, 4, 7, 10 and all new entrants), please use the “View or Edit my Registrations” button to update the existing Participant record for your child.

March Means . . . Reading!

  PARP—Pick a Reading Partner—is an annual event at all three KLSD elementary schools that purposefully nurtures the joy of reading.  

Throughout the month of March, children are encouraged to share twenty minutes of reading with someone at home—whether it’s a parent, sibling, friend, older relative or any interested adult—every week day. This can be an adult reading aloud to a child, the child reading aloud to others, or even reading books or newspapers individually, but sitting together.

 “Enjoy these reading moments; don’t let them be a chore. They will be happy memories for you and your child,” said Enid Linden, Reading Interventionist at Katonah Elementary School.   

This year, each school kicked off PARP with a visit from John Jay High School’s Advanced Acting class. They acted out five favorite children’s books including Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type, We Are in a Book (An Elephant and Piggy Book), and He Came with the Couch, to the great enjoyment of the younger students. 

The emphasis on reading continues with family, friends and local VIPS coming to read, author visits, and other special activities along the creative theme each school picks for PARP.

Katonah Elementary School’s theme is All the Places We’ll Go, based on Dr. Seuss’ book "Oh, the Places You’ll Go!," which they selected as a community read. Fifth graders met one of their favorite writers, Rkindergartenersob Buyea, author of "Because of Mr. Terupt," and, still to come, kindergarteners and first graders will meet Alan Katz, humorist and author of "That Stinks! "and "Poems I Wrote When No One Was Looking." 

Increase Miller Elementary School’s theme is Good Books, Good Times, since a great story can make you feel like you're taking part in the adventure. Students throughout the school have been working on book recommendations during their library time this month, and they've been published on the library's website for everyone to enjoy.  

Meadow Pond Elementary School's theme is Ticket to Read, based on the "Ticket to Ride" board game. Teachers use a bulletin board with locomotives moving toward their goal as a  visual for students to track their reading. Kindergarten, first, and second grade students enjoyed meeting Laurie Keller, author of many famous books including "The Scrambled United States of America," who discussed how she writes and illustrates her books.

While there's more to come, PARP will be wrapping up at each elementary school soon, having done its work in reminding children of the many wonderful adventures and new friends that can be found through reading.
