Principal's Message




Dear Ethel Kight Families, 

   Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year at Ethel W. Kight Elementary School! We are committed to our mission of cultivating high student achievement, social responsibility, and lifelong learning. We offer a variety of programs and activities as well as an excellent academic curriculum that assists in the growth and development of well-rounded individuals.

   We are so excited about the progress our students made last year with the dedication of our staff, our students taking ownership of their learning, and the support of our parents and community members. We know that this year promises to be filled with even more extraordinary opportunities for all of our students to reach their full academic and personal potential through rigorous and relevant teaching as well as innovative programs designed to allow students to play an active role in their learning. Our faculty and staff will continue to encourage all students to set high goals for themselves. 

   Our students will continue to learn about the importance of being respectful, responsible and safe through PBIS lessons. We also have many opportunities throughout this year for parent participation and trainings, so that we will continue to work closely as a school family. Our theme this year is, Ethel's House Is the Best House! 

   Good communication between students, teachers, staff and administration is the key to the success of our students. I look forward to working with you and your student. Thank you for entrusting us with the opportunity to educate your student.
