Dear Students:


It’s time to test your spelling skills in our annual school Spelling Bee.  Participants at each grade level will compete against each other.  Then the 7th and 8th grade winners will battle it out for the spot in the district spelling bee.  The final winner has the opportunity to not only participate in the district spelling bee, but also have a chance at the regional, state, and national contests.


KAMS Spelling Bee will be held on Wednesday, October 19th during lunch.  Only participants may be present for the contest due to the size of the classroom.  The winner of the school bee is welcome to invite family and friends to the district and regional bees. Come sign-up and get your list of words to study in Mrs. Richardson’s classroom (MJ7).


You MUST sign up and get your list of words by Friday, Oct. 9th to participate in the contest.


Both the 7th grade and 8th grade study words are attached. 


If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Richardson.


Dear Parents and Families:

Reading for pleasure inside and outside of school has real and long-lasting benefits. It unlocks the power of information and imagination and helps kids discover who they are.  Here’s what you can do to help kids develop stronger reading skills and a love for reading:

  • Set the example. Let your kids see you read.
  • Have a collection of books in the home. Update this collection routinely to keep pace with changing tastes and reading skills.
  • Support our school’s Book Fair. Allow your kids to choose their own books to read.


Our Scholastic Book Fair is a reading event that brings to school the books kids want to read. It’s a wonderful selection of engaging and affordable books for every reading level. Please make plans to visit our Book Fair and be involved in shaping your child’s reading habits.

On campus Book Fair dates: September 26 – September 30th

Shopping hours: 7:30am-4:00 pm

If you are unable to attend the Book Fair in person, we invite you to visit our online Book Fair at


Our online Fair is available from Sept 19th – Oct 1st.

We look forward to seeing you and your family at our Book Fair! Remember, all purchases benefit our English Department.
