KDM Congratulates Students of the Month, Angelina Yan (1st grade ) and Elizabeth McNinch (4th grade ). Angelina is an excellent role model for her classmates. She is always willing to help out her teacher and other students in her class. Elizabeth works hard on any task she is presented with, helps others when asked to, quietly works independently, and works well in groups.
KDM faculty, staff, and students participated in the Global Great Kindness Challenge with Spirit Week! Each day we focused on creating a welcoming and inclusive environment at school.

Congratulations to our Spelling Bee Finalists!!!
A big thank you to Phyllis Alpaugh and the Rotary Club of the Rockaways, who generously donated dictionaries to all third graders. Ms. Alpaugh had students look up the word "community" in their dictionaries and made it a real concept for them.
