Come and see what it’s like to go to Kindergarten at Kemp!

Our goal is to help children feel at home at Kemp Elementary by fostering familiarity with our school, students, and teachers. Ready, Set, Go! Camp introduces rising kindergartners to Kemp and is run by our Kindergarten teachers.  Students will explore our school, practice kindergarten skills, enjoy crafts, friendship and fun as they get a head start on becoming Kemp Elementary Cougars!

Pablo Picasso said,” Every child is an artist.”
At Kemp, our Student Art Show celebrates that idea!

Mrs. Ramirez would like to say Thank You to all of the students and Parent Volunteers who helped make the Art Show a big success. It was wonderful to see and celebrate the creative side of our students!

Multi-Cultural Night-A Great Success



Multicultural Night could not have been a success without you!

Thank you for performing, presenting and attending our first Multicultural Night. Our vision was for the school, community, and district to come together in celebration of everything that is different that makes us one!

Current and former Kemp students gave wonderful performances.  We had performances from other area schools as well as schools from outside of our area and KSU students who performed to our eager audience.  There were performers who came from other counties to share in the magic bringing even more to the evening. Area businesses supported through catering and our very own parents brought in scrumptious culinary delights for all to sample.

Thank you to the AWESOME parents  and staff who pitched in before, during,  and after the event to help put this school back together in record time, we were overwhelmed by your support.

This is the Kemp Spirit that we wanted to elicit and bring together.

Unity, Love, Peace and Respect for One Another,

Thank you for embracing our vision.

The Kemp Staff
