Who is Georgia W. Kimball?
A word from the Principal :
*As the weather turns colder, please label your child's coats, sweaters and other personal items so they can be more easily returned if lost. Don't send items to school that would be a hardship if lost or stolen.
*It is never too late to join PTA. Membership is only $6. To volunteer time, contact the office for details.
*Our PTA is collecting Campbell's soup labels and General Mills Boxtops. Send them to school with your child's name to receive credit for their homeroom and a dog tag.
*Students are allowed to have wireless devices such as cell phones at school, but they cannot be used during school hours and must be turned off. Devices that are on and/or cause a disruption during the school day will be confiscated. Refer to page 14 of the student handbook for the consequences of violating this rule.
*When dropping off or picking up students, please do so only from the right lane to avoid students crossing in front of cars. Student safety is of upmost importance.
This school year, the CATCH program continues at Kimball and across the MISD. CATCH stands for Coordinated Approach to Child Health. The coordinated effort takes place between the classroom teachers, food service program, and families at home.
Our teachers incorporate healthy lifestyle elements into the curriculum, while Coach Holley utilized CATCH activities at all grade levels. Our food service department provides nutritious meals and emphasizes healthy eating through various activities.
Your food and physical activity choices each day affect your health-how you feel today, tomorrow, and in the future. These tips and ideas are a starting point for sustaining good health. Choose a change you can make today, and move toward a healthier you.
Thank you for supporting us and joining in our efforts to promote a healthy lifestyle among Kimball students.
Parking Lot Rules
Please remember to adhere to the parking lot guidelines when dropping off and picking up your children. All guidelines are in place to protect the children.
Specifically, the right lane is for dropping off only. It is helpful if all cars stop near the flagpole as this allows more people to drop off at the same time. Please wait patiently in line for the cars ahead of you to drop their children off. There is an increased danger for the children when cars pass each other in an effort to hurry through the line.
The left lane is reserved for through traffic and should never be used for dropping students off. Children should never be allowed to cross the parking lot without adult supervision. Thank you for helping us ensure the safely of all Kimball students.
