Welcome to Kid Street Learning Center Charter School
Home of the Owls
Thanksgiving Day can be traced back to the 1621 celebration at the Plymouth Plantation. In 1864, Abraham Lincoln proclaimed the last Thursday of November as Thanksgiving Day. George Washington
made “The National Thanksgiving Proclamation” in 1789. The holiday was then set in stone by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1939 to be celebrated on the 4th Thursday in November. Giving thanks has and always will be a priority in our great Nation.
Students at our school have been learning about the history of Thanksgiving and expressing things they are grateful for. Enjoy these quotes from some of our students:
“I am grateful to have good friends. I also appreciate having teachers teach me new things. I am grateful for our after school program having fun activities” – Noah, 2 grade
“I appreciate the free food we get.” – Anthony, 3 grade
“I am grateful for having a family who supports me” – Johanna, 4 grade
“I am grateful to be getting and education.” – Hope, 5 grade
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 more unique
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 clothing, 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
