Dear Kellogg Families-
What a fun week to be a Knight! We started with an energy-filled Pep Assembly followed by crazy outfits for our spirit days, and ended with a fabulous Fun Run! The rain greeted us for about 10 minutes on Friday, but then we were lucky enough to run and celebrate in the sunshine. Thank you to everyone who turned in the student Fun Run envelope, those who were able to contribute to our fundraiser, and those who were able to help supervise the course and be my popcorn popping partners. It was a wonderful community event that will help us support our ASB activities throughout the year. Look for a celebration video highlighting the week coming out very soon!

As you are planning your family calendars, please be reminded that we have two shorter weeks coming up starting on the 13th. We have a 4 day week following Veterans Day, and our schedule is O,E,O,E  and zero period meets every morning including Wednesday. This calendar information will be available via this Blog an…

Dear Kellogg Families-

We have an exciting week ahead of us at Kellogg.  We start off with our first Pep Assembly of the year on Monday. This is a fun, high energy assembly that helps us kick off our Spirit Week. Here are the student selected dress-up days for this week:

Monday - Class colors 7th grade - yellow 8th grade - blue Tuesday - Lazy day (PJ's, sweats, comfy clothes) Wednesday - Halloween Thursday - Crazy hair day Friday - Twin day

We end our week with our Kellogg Fun Run! This is our ASB fundraiser and is a wonderful community builder within our school. Please glance back at previous Blog entries for the Fun Run informational letter and our video introducing the event. We need parent volunteers during the day to help us pop popcorn for every student who returned their Fun Run envelope with a parent/guardian signature. We also need parent volunteers to line the course to help cheer on our students and keep them moving in the right direction. If this could be you, please sign up a…

Thank you for everyone who was able to come out and support our PTSA Trivia night! We appreciate you!!


Attention Dads of Kellogg!
I would like to invite you to participate in our WATCH DOGS program. You may be familiar with the program already as it’s quiet popular at our elementary schools. In case you’re not familiar, WATCH DOGS stands for Dads Of Great Students, and the purpose of the program is simple - to have dads interacting with students on our campus. We are especially grateful for dads who are able to come help out at lunches which run from 12:00 - 1:15 each day (except for Wednesdays; on Wednesdays lunches run from 11:35 - 12:45). If you’re interested in participating, email me at the email address below. I’d like to hold a WATCH DOG orientation on Thursday, October 25th at 5:00 P.M.  Plan on being there about 30 minutes. We’ll have pizza, learn about the program, take care of the volunteer paperwork, and get you on your way. Our students love seeing their da…

Dear Kellogg Families-

It's hard to believe that we only have two more weeks of our first sport season! If you haven't had a chance to come out and cheer on our Knights, we have a home Cross Country meet and Football game both on Wednesday at 3:45pm. We hope to see you there!

The end of our Quarter One grading period is next Friday the 25th. Quarter grades will be mailed home and should be used as a gauge for how your student is performing academically, and what supports they might need in order to finish the first semester strong. All students should be using their planners daily to track assignments, and Canvas to check their grades. If you need assistance supporting your student with organization or Canvas, please reach out to their counselor for help. 

Picture retake day is this Wednesday the 17th. Students who missed our picture day or want to retake their picture will be provided time to get their picture taken during the school day.

Your student will be coming home on Monda…

Kellogg Families- We had our first Fanny Pack Friday at Kellogg this past Friday! This is when our staff wear fanny packs holding our character bracelets and hand a few out to students who have been examples of the specific character trait during the week. This month we are learning about and recognizing commitment. Week one focused on TIME commitment. Our upcoming week is on the commitment and importance of knowing NAMES in our school community. If your student comes home wearing a red commitment bracelet, please ask about it and congratulate them for being recognized for this character trait. Want to know more about the October daily character dares and the weekly focus areas? Visit this LINK and use the dares as daily check-ins with your child or conversation starters at dinner. The more we connect our work at school with home, the more our work impacts our students. If you have yet to see our kick off video, here is the LINK!

Thank you to everyone who was able to join us for Curriculum Night! It is always a wonderful night having our halls filled with families and students.  We hope that you were able to learn about our vision at Kellogg, how to best support your student this year, and who to contact when you need assistance. Please continue to let us know how we can best support your student and family.

This week we are excited to get our monthly character theme and daily character dares started on Monday, Oct. 1st. If you were unable to attend on Curriculum Night, please watch our Character video on our student recognition plan. Video link This program will hopefully provide you opportunities to give your child praise for showing VALOR at Kellogg and ask about why they were given a character bracelet during the month.

Joining our PTSA is another way to connect with our school. Our PTSA supports so many of our programs that otherwise could not be offered at Kellogg, and they provide many op…
