Greetings Jaguar Family,
I would like to officially welcome each and every one of you to the 2020-2021 academic school year! 2020 has definitely been a year that will go down in history! However, it is our sincere hope here at Kenneth Gardner Elementary that together we can achieve greatness in spite of our numerous challenges we face around the world.
Times like these are truly a test of our spirit because most of us have never seen anything like this in our lifetimes. However, for our young learners, the landscape of education, has been forever changed. With this, we too, must all pivot and readjust our mindsets as we are forced to rethink education. This will require tremendous patience from all of us. While it is important for us to maintain a standard of excellence, we must be mindful that not all things will go perfectly; mistakes and mishaps will occur, but what’s most important is that we all learn as we go along. There is no doubt that we can accomplish our goals with an abundance of teamwork and commitment to our students. It is my personal request to you to be patient with yourself, be patient with your children, as well as be patient with our KGES team. Again, we are navigating uncharted territory.
The upside of all of this is that we will hopefully be able to say that we were a part of the major shift in education and albeit challenging, WE DID IT! I look forward to seeing you in person as well as virtually. Stay connected by visiting our website often. We will keep you informed by posting our newsletters, calendars and announcements. You may also contact me by phone (843) 355-7233; Ext. 4103 and by email email@example.com.
