Student Pledge

I am proud to be a student at Kinoshita Elementary.

With the support of my teachers and my family,

I will work hard every day to build my character

and my skills in Reading, Writing, and Math.

I will work every day to prepare for my future.

I am smart. I am important.

My teachers believe in me. I believe in myself.



Summer Accelerated Reading

Kinoshita students are encouraged to participate in our summer program, Accelerated Reading (AR) Friday's. Students will join other Kinoshita Scholars in the school's multipurpose room from 11:00-12:00 on the Friday's listed below. Students will have an opportunity to select AR books and either read them aloud to a dedicated community volunteer or the volunteer can read aloud to the student. Students will then take an AR quiz on the school's computer lab and move-on to the next book. 

At the end of the AR session, all students and families will be invited to the lunch room to participate in the District's Summer Feeding Program. All children under the age of 18 years can enjoy a free lunch! We hope to see you on AR Friday's here at Kinoshita Elementary School!

Summer AR Friday's: 

July 10, 17, 24,
