Congratulations to our ACE Award Nominee & Winner
Fernell Lopez, what would we do without you? This classified ACE winner is an instrumental staff member as a bilingual educational assistant.

“Fernell gives his time and talents to build opportunities for students while supporting families. He works in our PILOT and GANAS programs, helping students grow and showcasing their leadership and academic skills while bringing arts into our school and organizing events that bring families together. While Fernell is extraordinary in his translation skills that help us do what we need to do for our Spanish speaking families, his heart extends to all of our school’s community.

“He is the very model of kindness and compassion and he demonstrates these qualities in all his interactions with students, staff, and parents. He cares deeply about people and helping them be whole in our society without having to give up their culture. He is kind and so very generous to others. And he brings fun, laughter, and music to our school. Fernell is the kind of man that you want for a father, a brother, a friend and most certainly a co-worker in every school.”

Fernell, te apreciamos mucho. Mil gracias por todo lo que haces para ayudar a nuestros estudiantes, familias y educadores.

Many thanks to Mike Truitt, who volunteers here at Kelly every day!  Mike’s dedication has led him to be recognized with a nomination in the 2017 ACE Awards. His nominator says, “Mike had just started a life of retirement when he was asked to volunteer in the game room at Kelly Middle School. Mike opens that room for students to play pool and ping-pong during lunch every day — 5 days a week for the past 3 years!”

Mike, thank you for the gift of your time, attention and enthusiasm — you are making a difference for kids!

Office Reminders

Picking Your Student Up Early?
If it’s a pre-planned appointment just send a note with your student. They show the note to their teacher to be excused from class and then they drop the note by the office to check out. They can then be in the office waiting for you! If you forget to send a note or have something unexpected come up please call the office with as much advanced notice as possible so we have time to locate your student and get them up to the office. This helps eliminate unnecessary class interruptions.

ParentVue
ParentVue is available for you to be able to monitor your student’s grades. Activation code information was sent home with your student at the beginning of October. If you did receive your activation code, please contact the front office. ParentVue is now available for Android or iPhone users just go to the app store and download for free.

Contacting Teachers
Do you have questions about how your student is doing? You can reach teachers through an email or a phone call. Simply go to the Staff Directory page on the Kelly website. There you will find staff email addresses and phone numbers.
