Dear KLA Parents and Families,

Welcome to the 2019-20 school year!  Our 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 continue to include additional small group instruction to address all students’ needs.


I am excited to announce that we will be offering Mandarin in addition to Spanish as an additional language option as part of our Enrichment courses. 

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
