Good Evening Kingsview Family.
This is Principal Harrison with the Panther Report. Thank you for a great opening of school last week. Students and staff definitely demonstrated our DR2EAM BIG state of mind. I hope that you have created an account for the myMCPS Parent Portal. Please be advised myMCPS Parent Portal is the primary home-to-school communication vehicle for schools to share information regarding grades, attendance, scheduling, and more.
If you have not already done so, please join the PTSA. This year full membership includes a discount card to various local businesses and restaurants. Your membership supports Kingsview MS students and staff. Please visit the PTSA website for details about membership.
Please make your calendar for these upcoming events:
Monday, September 10th- Holiday. There is no school for students and staff.
Tuesday, September 11th - Fall tryouts for 7th & 8th grade students interested in Softball or Cross Country will be held from 3:10-4:30pm. Students interested in trying out for fall sports must have their physical completed.
Wednesday, September 12th - KMS will host Back-to-School Night (BTSN). BTSN at KMS has three different parts so please plan your evening accordingly. BTSN will begin with concurrent activities in two different locations: the After-school Activities Fair will be held in the cafeteria from 5:30-6:15pm and the Health Information Fair will be held in the gym for all 7th & 8th grade parents from 5:30-6:15pm. Classroom visits will begin with period 1 promptly at 6:30pm and end at 8:30pm. During the classroom visits, you will follow your child’s schedule and hear from KMS administration during your child’s “lunch” period.
Friday, September 14th – KMS will administer the PSAT for any 8th grade student interested in an opportunity to take this college level assessment. The PSAT will be administered on October 26th at Kingsview MS. All 8th grade students interested in taking the PSAT must return the permission slip and the $11 fee by Friday, September 14th.
Please be advised after Sunday, September 16, 2018, the Panther Report (AKA the Sunday message) will be delivered on a bi-weekly schedule. Please review the school website and your email for any information that may need to be disseminated between weeks.
I look forward to seeing you at Back-to-School Night!
Remember at Kingsview Middle School, we DR2EAM BIG! Have a great evening.
