WELCOME TO KIMPTON MIDDLE SCHOOL
Dear Kimpton Families~
Some important dates are on the horizon at Kimpton. Our eighth grade JUMP START will be held on Tuesday, August 14th, and our 7th graders are invited to join us for JUMP START on Wednesday, August 15th. Please look for a mailing at the start of August for specific times, or check out the Kimpton Web Page. Open House for 7th grade will be on Wednesday, August 29th, from 6:30 to 8:00, and we will meet 8th grade parents on Thursday, August 30th at their Open House. School pictures, along with Kimpton's first round of parent/teacher conferences will be Thursday, 9/27, from 3:00-7:40 Please contact your child's team teachers to set up a conference time. Our teachers are always happy to meet, discuss concerns, and problem-solve. This is also a great time to share any insights you may have about how your child learns best! Remember, you can sign up to receive Weekly Kimpton Updates through the Annual Forms and Consent Portal. This is a great way to stay updated on Kimpton events.
In an effort to streamline the process and eliminate the need to fill out forms multiple times, all forms are accessible on-line again this year. Important forms can be found on the district web page under the ANNUAL FORMS AND CONSENT PORTAL. Please feel free to contact the school if you have questions or concerns regarding this process. Password information is mailed home at the beginning of each school year.
Please remember to use the district web site, under Kimpton, in order to stay informed about events and important dates. For example, incoming 7th graders are required to have an additional immunization this school year. Details can be found on Kimpton’s web page--along with general and team specific supply lists, and other important information. Please check it out! You can also follow me on Twitter @Kimpton_SMF in order to keep up the latest news.
Should you ever have additional concerns or questions, please feel free to contact your child’s teachers, school counselors (Mrs. Angely 8th, or Mr. Griffin 7th), the Assistant Principal, Mr. Love, or me—Mrs. Palchesko, Kimpton's Principal. It is important that we keep the lines of communication between school and home open in order to ensure student progress and success!
I am excited to begin my fourth year as the Kimpton Middle School Principal. We're going to have a great year!
Mrs. Susan T. Palchesko, Principal
Please feel free to contact me any time with questions or concerns, and thank you for your continued support!
