Families of Somers Elementary,

Welcome to the 2019-20 school year! Our staff have been preparing and are eager to
begin a new year. With 365 new days come 365 new opportunities. We are committed
to learning, growing, and leading with your students.
We begin our journey with Open House on August 28th from 5:00-6:30. This is an
opportunity for parents to pick up important school information and for students to meet
their teachers. Please begin by picking up materials for your students in the foyer just
inside of door 1. Classroom assignment, bus letter, fee statement, WI Forward test
result as well as other important pieces will be in your child’s packet. Stop by the book
fair and check out many school and community resources in our gym. Our
Somers School Community (SSC) parent organization will be selling spirit wear and
welcoming students with popsicles.
I encourage everyone riding a bus to acclimate your student to the bus stop by waiting with him/her and discussing safe bus behaviors. Attendance and being on
time is a very important life habit. Please be proactive and prepare for a positive start to
each day. Our school hours are 8:15-3:15 (F12:11).
You will find helpful and up to date information on our website . Each grade level will publish a weekly newsletter you can
access through our website as well. This will give you specific weekly grade level
information. As always, I encourage you to communicate directly with your child’s
teacher if you have specific questions or concerns.
KUSD is using a new math resource called Bridges . Please join us September 25th at
our Math Night to learn about the components and how you can best support
your student.
Somers Elementary begins its journey as a Leader in Me school. This leadership
initiative is built on Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. The
principles are helping us develop student leaders who are successful academically
and are proactive contributors to our school and community. Watch for opportunities to
learn more as a family to support this work.
