As we look to conclude one school year, we are already working to prepare for the next. We are excited to share with you a significant enhancement to the student learning experience at KAMS for the 2018-2019 school year.
Preparing our kids to be future ready, the middle school will be expanding our eighth grade laptop program into our sixth and seventh grade programs, ensuring all of our students at KAMS have devices for learning. Your student will be provided with a Chromebook laptop for learning during the first weeks of school next year. As a future-focused school of excellence, our goal is to provide each student the highest quality interactive learning experiences possible. Every learner will have equal access to resources and rich online materials, helping them to engage more deeply with their courses and in their studies.
Students at the middle school will also be using Canvas, our learning management software, to access our coursework, view assignment calendar, and submit work electronically. These online course resources will be available to your child at all times and easily accessed on their school device at any time.
You will receive more information on these programs and forms in the mail this summer. We will also be hosting an optional family information session about this program on Wednesday, August 29th, 2018 at 6:00PM prior to the start of Parent Night.
Expanding our laptop program continues the district’s tradition of excellence in offering the most innovative and engaging academic experiences and programs for our kids. We look forward to an incredible 2018-2019 school year with you and your child.
