Mrs. Cumpata's Cosmic Communication - 5.3.24

Good Afternoon Kildeer Families!

I cannot believe this is the last month of school! Thank you for all your support as we enter the last month of my first school year at Kildeer. We are ready to finish the year strong! 

This week, our students completed their MAP testing, and for those who were absent, make-up sessions will be held next week.

There will be many fun end of the year events we’re looking forward to this month. We’re also thrilled for the beautiful weather. As the weather changes, our lost and found is once again filling up. Please encourage your child to stop by and check it out if they’ve misplaced anything!

Have a WONDERful weekend!

Mrs. Karen Cumpata
