In our ongoing efforts to enhance your child’s safety and simplify dismissal… We have implemented PikMyKid. Using this new way of dismissal allows the parent to "annouce" their arrival in the afternoon. The student will see the announcement and head to parent pick up from their classroom. Parents can also change their child's mode of transportation and delegate someone different to pick them up after school.
As the first nine weeks comes to a close, Assistant Superintendent Gillian Gregory led a presentation in front of the Leon County School Board, providing members with updates after using the new hybrid learning model. This video features excerpts from the presentation, which featured feedback from nine teachers selected from throughout the district.
A native of Nairobi-Kenya, and a longtime teacher at Kate Sullivan Elementary School, Mr. Amon Rwito is multi-lingual—literally and figuratively—since he is fluent in five languages. He also strives to inspire a love for curiosity and discovery through the language of his favorite subject—science. Mr. Rwito is equally skilled in the written word and is a published author of a children’s book. His multi-cultural, multi-subject-matter approach allows for an “exchange of ideas and knowledge with my students. It’s important to want to learn from one another. I learn from my students more than I think I teach them.” #ThankATeacher
