Club de nativos 2014-15.docx

This year Kemp will be starting a  Spanish Club for the Foreign Language learners in 2nd -5th grade in order for them to get to expand upon what they learn in Spanish class. The club will meet twice per month, on 2nd and 4th Mondays from 2;30-3;30 in Sra. Tansey’s class (Rm. 404). We will learn more about Spanish speaking countries, play games, do crafts, make “Spanish word of the day” videos for the rest of the school, play out dialogs, act out stories in Spanish and more. The students will have to be picked up outside KEMP at 330 or go to ASP for the normal fee. If they are interested in participating please complete the form below.  If there is enough interest, I will announce the first meeting at school and by email or text.

Transportation News

CCSD Bus Routes for the 2014-2015 school year are now available on the CCSD website.  Runs and maps will be posted at your local school for review prior to the first day of school.
Bus Routes

Kindergarten and First Grade students along with their parents are invited to ride the bus August 1, 2014, as a practice run prior to the first day of school on Monday, August 4. Buses will run at regular scheduled morning pick up times and parents/students should be at the bus stop at least 5 minutes early.  Due to limited space, we ask that you limit the number of additional family members riding.  Only school-age children are allowed to ride as our regular buses are not equipped with car seats. The bus will follow the planned route to school, then return back to the bus stop.

During the months of August and September if temperatures reach 90 degrees or higher students may bring water in containers with a screw on lid to drink on the bus. 

If you have any questions, please contact the Transportation Department at 678/594-8000, or email your transportation area supervisor whose email can be found on the Transportation website.
