School Programs/Clubs:

Accelerated Reader Program:
This program is designed primarily for 1st through 3rd graders. Students are encouraged to read AR books and afterwards take a comprehension test. Students earn points based on the results of the comprehension tests they complete. Students who reach grade level goals (points earned) receive awards quarterly and at the end of the school year.

Stop-Look-Listen Program:
This is another program which encourages the love of reading at KES. Parents of students in grades K-6th can earn a gold medal by listening to their children read 15 minutes a day, ten times per month between October and May. While students benefit from the STOP - LOOK -LISTEN project, the goal of the project is to recognize and reward parents for their participation. Contact the school (834-2839) to enroll in the program.

500 x 5 Program:
In an effort to help ensure that all children enter school ready to read, this program encourages parents to read at least 500 books to their preschool children by the time they reach the age of five. Contact the school (834-2839) to enroll in the program.

S.A.V.E./K-Kids:
This is a community service club which promotes the value of helping the community and students in this club will promote and teach others how to solve problems in non-violent ways. Since the focus of this group is leadership, membership is limited to only fifth and sixth grade students. This club is sponsored by the Kiwanis.

Student Council:
This club was designed to give 6th grade students the opportunity to speak out about concerns, give suggestions about changes and to demonstrate their leadership within the school building. 

Homework Club:
This after school club was designed to give students the opportunity to complete schoolwork between 2:15-3:00 pm. Students are at times encouraged to participate in this club by their teachers. Room is limited in this club so it is important for parents to contact the school if they are interested in having their child stay after school to complete homework.

Older Citizens’ Week:
As a way of thanking our students’ relatives for their support, KES offers “older citizens” an invitation to eat lunch with their grandson, granddaughter, niece, nephew, etc. on a select day during “Older Citizen’s Week.” This week is generally during the month of April or May.
