School Closed Today

Hello KMS Families,
Due to the winter storm warning of heavy snow and winds expected to come by late morning, we have made the decision to close the school today.
Please know we do not make these decisions lightly – our primary concern is always the safety of ALL of our staff and families. 
Fingers crossed this will be our last storm this winter!
Please stay safe today.
Kind regards,Ugette

This Week:

A busy week here in LE! On Monday we had volunteers from Friends Of Honduran Children in to do a workshop with students called “Global Kids”. Students learned about what life is like for Honduran Children and participated in several activities including writing post cards. Thank you Libby( a KMS parent) and her team for coming in to talk to us!

Students were excited to present their French plays to parents today! Thank you to everyone who took time out of their busy schedules to come watch their children present and thank you to Laura, our French Teacher for all her hard work in supporting our students with these performances.

Next Week:

Gym will continue on Wednesday at Trent University. Please help your child/children to remember their running shoes, water bottles and dress in comfortable/stretchy clothing!

Jimmy Chapman, a well known local Break Dancer will be returning to KMS on Friday and teaching us all how to break dance.

Tip/ Reminder:

Casa News: Week of January 21-25, 2019

This Week:

What a strange week we all had! From frozen pipes to snow storms and freezing rain! Through it all, the children kept smiling. It’s been so lovely to have snow in the backyard again! If your child wants to bring their sled back to school, there is enough snow to toboggan once again. Please remember to label the sled so that we can keep track of whose sled belongs to which child.

Next Week:

On Tuesday we have a special guest coming to run the annual “Teddy Bear Hospital” in the two Casa classrooms. Angela Carruthers (mother to Brennah in UE) will be teaching the students all about life in the ER and will show the students how to care for a variety of stuffed animals with pretend injuries.

Public Open House:

There is a Public Open House tomorrow from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm. If you know of anyone who would like to come and tour the school and learn more about the Montessori philosophy and KMS, please extend an invitation on our behalf. We’d love to meet them!


Hello KMS Families,

As well, all programming scheduled for our Elementary and Middle School students at Trent has been cancelled as we do not want them traveling by bus.
