Principals Corner
Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a wonderful Winter break with friends and family.

It is always great to see the kids again after a long break. We are back into the swing of things and I know students and staff are working hard. Before Winter break, our students took a short attendance survey during Advisory class. One of the questions we asked was: “What is one thing you like the most at Kelly Middle School?” There were two loud and clear answers–Friends and teachers. The first answer is no surprise, but the second set of responses was encouraging to read. Collective student-voice tells us that our staff members are building strong, caring and genuine relationships with our students.

On Thursday this week, our students presented a Martin Luther King assembly to students and staff and community members. Please ask your student about it.

Please remember we are about three weeks away from mid-term grade reports. Please check your ParentVue account for updates on your student’s progress. Teachers will be updating ParentVue in the coming weeks as the mid-term approaches. Let us know if you need access to your ParentVue account.

Sincerely,
Juan Cuadros
