Dear Parents and Families,

On behalf of the entire Kettle Lake Elementary staff, I would like to extend a warm welcome to you as we begin the 2018-2019 school year.

We look forward to working with you during this upcoming school year. Please know that we will do all we can to foster a safe and caring learning environment in which our children feel loved and respected.

Our staff

The Kettle Lake Staff is composed of dedicated, caring, professional educators who are passionate about teaching and learning. We realize that our efforts will have a lasting influence on the students we serve. Therefore, we are committed to achieving excellence in education.

We hope that every student takes full advantage of the educational opportunities they will be presented with this school year.

Cougar Promise

At Kettle Lake Elementary School we strive to be Cougar Cool every single day. Our Cougar Promise states:

I know the way and I can show the way.

I am safe…I am responsible…I am kind.

I am Cougar Cool!

Community volunteers

Our parents are vital and active members of the Kettle Lake learning community through volunteering in the classroom and engaging with our vibrant and active Parent-Teacher Organization. The Kettle Lake PTO sponsors a whole host of activities throughout the school year to help us educate the whole child.

Kettle Lake Elementary School is proud to provide a safe and caring environment where every student has an opportunity to grow and learn. Again, I welcome each of you to Kettle Lake Elementary School. We look forward to working cooperatively with all our families to make this the best school year ever!

Use Our Library Program From Home

The Caledonia schools have begun using a new web-based library program called Destiny. This program can be accessed anywhere you have internet. You can see what books your student has checked out, their cost if they are lost, and see a history of all the books they have checked out from the Kettle Lake library. Your student can also make a personal list of books they would like to check out to use when they come to library, hold a book if it is checked out, and they can recommend a book to others or write a review. To log onto this program, click the link found here and choose Kettle Lake Elementary. Login in the upper right corner. The user name is your student's FirstNameLastName with no spaces. The password is their student ID number. Check out our exciting new program with them!
