Superintendent Update Week of Oct. 19

Good Day Kimball. Students are back to school for a full week of school this week. The fall sports are wrapping up. This week is last week of regular season volleyball. The playoffs for the girls start next week. If you have some spare time, get out and support them as they make their push to do well in section play. Just a reminder for any winter sport athletes to get going on their preparation for the start of their activity. That season starts Nov. 9. It will be here before we know it.

Stand Up Against Bullying event Oct. 14

Kimball Elementary has a new focus on anti-bullying. Stand Up Against Bullying is a researched-based program based on the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program. Each month, staff and students wear an orange T-shirt and discuss important anti-bullying issues including playground behavior, cyberbullying, short- and long-term consequences of bullying, strategies to eliminate bullying in our schools, and more.

Our kickoff event was held on Wednesday, Oct. 14, and students from ?ÄúCamp O?Äù, an after-school service learning program, wrote and performed skits to remind students of the effects of bullying behavior. Paid for with a grant from Resource Training and Solutions, the year-long program will also include a magician performing for KES students Wednesday, Jan. 13, with a program entitled ?ÄúThe Bully?Äù.
