Thank you for visiting Kingsford Park School’s website. I am Dr. Volkomer and would like to welcome you to Kingsford Park School. Whether you are just visiting or planning to become a part of our building community, we are happy you are here. This building community is a vibrant setting with engaged students, responsive faculty and staff along with an active parent organization. We are working each day to teach and assist students in becoming “Fully Prepared and Life Ready.” While educating the whole child, academics are very important but educating children by focusing on positive character attributes, enhancing relationship skills and setting high expectations, assist in realizing the district’s vision and mission of “being child centered”. In order to best meet your needs, our main office is open from 8 am until 4 pm each school day and we can be reached by phone at 341-2500 or by email (see the staff directory on the website). Although the district calendar has many of our celebrations and activities for the building scheduled, our KPS google calendar link should include many of the grade level events listed for your convenience.
Another important note is that all parents and guardians of students in the building belong to our parent organization called the KPS Home and School Association. This organization provides many events and activities throughout the school year including but not limited to arts in education presentations for students, author/illustrator visits, a school yearbook, a carnival, support of educational events such as literacy nights, and host a school store for students every Tuesday and Thursday morning. That parent group meets the second Wednesday of each month in the library from 7 pm to 8pm. Please use the back entrance to our school library from the Varick Street Parking lot (next to the ice rink) to enter and join the fun. Your participation would be welcomed whether monthly or occasionally. We encourage and thank you for being a part of your child’s Kingsford Park experience.
