Why Should You Keep Kid Street?
by: Stavros Kostakis, 8th grade student
I have been at Kid
Street for the last two years. Kid
Street is one of the lesser known schools around and I am lucky that my family
found it. I love it here. The education
we receive is high quality and taught not just by teachers, but by all
employees who equally love all the students who go there . The school has a big
impact on its local community. This school needs to stay open and it would be
detrimental to the local community’s education if it were to be closed. Kid Street is a safe place for its students
and their families. It is a home for
all of us who are part of the community.
This school can be
described as providing a service to the community. Students are able to engage
in multiple enrichment programs such as, Gardening Club, Dance Club Chess Club,
Kid Street News Bloggers, etc. There are also multiple field trips hosted here,
we’ve been able to go to the Roxy Movie Theater, The Exploratorium, and other amazing experiences.
Learning here is fun and I feel it can’t be matched by other schools. Our lives come into play with every lesson
and our teachers take a genuine interest in our lives. This creates for a positive learning
environment for everyone.
This school is
known for its thriving community. There are wonderful teachers that are here
because they want to teach, not just for a paycheck. The families are impacted
greatly through the school’s ability to address each child’s learning
needs. They do this through
differentiated academic instruction and support. Kids have more choice in their school of
attendance, and their individual learning needs are able to be met, which
results in bright children with even brighter futures. Kids get the education
they deserve here at Kid Street Charter School.
A message from Principal Kathleen Mallamo
It is my pleasure to welcome you to Kid Street Charter School, home of the Owls, for another exciting school year filled with learning. Our Kid Street staff and faculty holds itself to high expectations that every student is given the opportunity to experience the educational process in a positive manner in order to reach his/her potential.
We strive daily to reach every student so that all may become innovative, critical thinkers that collaborate effectively and contribute meaningfully in a technically advanced world. We are especially pleased to be offering a new Middle School Program (grades 6-8) that incorporates Makers’ Education, values the individual talents of each unique student, and provides enrichment opportunities that challenge students to express themselves in new ways.
It is through education that we as individuals are entitled the chance to move upward in society, maintain self and family, and obtain the skills needed to be productive citizens in the global community.
Parents, I trust that your child’s experience at Kid Street will be a life changing one. The 21st Century presents our students with challenges and opportunities than ever before. I want students and families to take advantage of the array of services provided to enhance their growth while here at our school. From basic services such as food and to enrichment opportunities such as art, drama, and engineering, we want our students to leave our doors as well rounded, confident, and talented individuals.
Please do not hesitate to contact me at any time to discuss our program and opportunities.
Sincerely, Kathleen Mallamo
