Night of the Arts
On June 5, Kane celebrated the arts with displays, portfolios, a basket raffle and an ice cream social. The Kane Night of the Arts is a popular annual spring event at the school. Below are some highlights!

Street realignment

To ease some of the crowding at Kane Elementary, the school of attendance for 13 district streets will change from Kane to Jaworek Elemetary beginning this fall. Incoming kindergartners and incoming first-graders living on the affected streets will go to Jaworek, unless they have older siblings who are at Kane already. In such cases, parents can contact the school to discuss the options of either keeping their students at Kane or having them attend Jaworek. It is the district’s intention not to split siblings between the two schools.

The streets affected are 1-540 Boston Post Road East, East Main Street, Curtis Avenue, Cotting Avenue, Cook Lane (from Boston Post Road to Peters Avenue), Bouffard Drive, Crystal Brook Way, Jean Road, Raymond Road, Symphony Road, Harmony Lane, Melody Lane, and Ames Place.

For additional information or questions, please call Kane School Principal Wendy Stanley at (508) 460-3507.

Let the reading begin!
On Feb. 7, Kane School kicked off its Reading Olympics, and in the spirit of the Sochi games launched its month of reading with Opening Ceremonies. While the Olympic theme played over the loud speakers, students passed a torch from class to class, and each classroom designed, colored and carried a special banner into the cafeteria for the ceremony itself.

During the ceremony, the entire school read a story, learned about the importance of working hard to achieve goals, and even got to meet an actual Olympian. Gil Santos, father of Kane first-grader Giovanna Landioso, competed in taekwondo for Brazil in 2 consecutive Olympics.

Principal Steve Silvestri led all students in the Reading Pledge, and then Kane mascot Kirby the Koala made a special appearance to greet the kids and light the Reading Olympics torch on stage.
Between Feb. 7 and March 5, students who read daily and log their reading on a special chart will earn an official reading medal during the closing ceremonies on March 5.

Shown below are highlights of the Opening Ceremonies!

Stargazers
On November 4, Kane fourth-graders were joined by a group of "expert" astronomers for a star-gazing party. Volunteers from Amateur Telescope Makers of Boston (ATMOB) and members of the Aldrich Astronomy group brought high-powered telescopes and arranged them upon the many visible bodies in the night sky. Families of fourth-graders brought refreshments and a curiosity for the night sky. National Honor Society members from Marlborough High School assisted in guiding families through activities such as viewing the Andromeda Galaxy and various double stars in the darkened playground area, playing in the gym, using chalk and black paper, or engaging in a presentation from Bruce Tinkler about telescope magnification. This event was out of this world!

Passionately Pink
Kane’s annual schoolwide Passionately Pink for a Cure day in October netted more than $650 for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. The event not only celebrates a Kane staff member’s “cancerFREEversary” of eight years, it also recognizes families, friends and loved ones affected or touched by cancer. Below are a few photos from the event.

On Sept. 20, the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) released its 2013 information about school accountability, how our school is performing relative to other schools, and the progress our school is making toward narrowing proficiency gaps for different groups of students. To access the Kane parent letter (three languages) regarding this information and the district- and school-level DESE “report cards,” see our NCLB Report Card webpage.

Parents: Starting with the 2012-13 school year, the district implemented a standards-based report card system. These report cards differ from those in the past; the new report cards reflect the Common Core standards embedded in the district’s new curriculum. Feedback on the report cards will be collected periodically to identify and develop revisions as needed. To access a parent pamphlet on the standards-based report cards, click:  English - Portuguese - Spanish. To access a glossary of terms and phrases, click: EnglishPortugueseSpanish.
