Primary Director's Message

Dear KLA Parents and Families,

Welcome to the 2022-23 school year!  The staff and I are excited are to begin another successful year with your children. We have another wonderful year ahead of us! 

We will continue our work to develop strong readers, writers and critical thinkers. This year we will place an even stronger emphasis on increasing math proficiency among our students. Our daily schedule will include additional small group instruction and Enrichment classes to address all students’ needs.


Our mission to reach this goal also relies on home support. I firmly believe a student's success is tied to a triangular partnership: SCHOOL, STUDENT and PARENT/FAMILY.  Our hope is to build and foster a positive, encouraging relationship with you. Communication is key and the teachers and I look forward to connecting with you. 


Additionally, we welcome your assistance through volunteerism, participation in our Parent Volunteer Team (PVT) and expertise that would enhance our students’ learning. If you are interested in participating in any of these opportunities, please feel free to contact Eva Contreras, [email protected]


I look forward to another wonderful school year!


Kind Regards,

Nicole K. Dougherty
