Superhero Day 2014
This year the theme at Kohl Open School is COURAGE! In every classroom courage is being examined, pondered, explained, and captured. To add to the examination Nina’s and Julie’s kindergarten/first grade classes had a Super Hero Day. Students came dressed as their favorite super hero or wore shirts expressing their choice. Lots of courageous entertainment indeed.
Welcome to the new school year!
Our Shin Kee Poem by Yolanda's Class
Take a word like Shin Kee and plant around it
Rabbit’s foot plant to tickle your friends
Tule sheltering habitat for slithering endangered giant garter snakes
Mustard blossoms dotting the landscape yellow, giving children a tangy flavor for their taste buds
Cylindrical stalks of Rush thriving and becoming a food source for the birds
Cattail used to shelter birds, protect prey, and a delicious edible plant
Native California roses capture the beauty of a wild garden, reminding us that the pioneers cooked rosehips jelly
California Golden Poppies shine as the heart of the environment
Fresh water clams wash to the shore during low tide
Pelicans drive in the water to hoist a fish
Hawks circle around searching for a meal
Kohl students trek through the grasses touching and learning about Mother Nature
Everything is now perfect in Shin Kee, stand back and view the environment which was created of plants—it is a WETLAND!
The 10th Annual Kohl/Walton Day in the Dirt was kicked off with a 5K Run/Walk dedicated to Art Cordero a former parent. They ran on the bike trail along the Calaveras River. All the students from both Walton and Kohl participated with students from UOP helping push wheel chairs from Walton. The students gathered in the amphitheater at Kohl for music by the After Naps and a band from the One Arts Academy. After a lunch, provided by the Cordero Family, the students enjoyed Shave Ice on the green. Awards for the fastest runners were presented, and a raffle was held. The day ended with the presentation of a check of $1000 to the Assistance League of Stockton for their work with children in Stockton. A great annual event where fun was had by all.
The Kohl Education Foundation hosted the 13th Annual Kohl Dinner which this year was a Crab Feed at the Scottish Rite Temple. Four hundred crab eaters were treated to a lavish crab dinner, multiple raffle items, silent and live auctions, and dancing with a great DJ. The Kohl Dinner was a great success which helps the KEF provides support for Kohl events, trips, and special supplies. One of the most significant achievements is to present at least two Kohl graduates with a college scholarship upon graduation from high school.
First Day of School 2013
The first day of school is always a great day at Kohl Open School. The students are returning with high expectations, the teachers are ready, and the parents come to wander and talk to od friends and meet new ones. This year Trustee Steve Smith visited. Teachers new and old were introduced and the Kohl Education Foundation hosted its annual Parent Reception.
Garden Clean Up
On August 10, 2013 a hearty band of parents, students, and friends of Kohl gathered to provide caretaking for the Kohl Memorial Garden. A garden that had been somewhat neglected during the summer sprung back to life in preparation for the first day of school. Thanks parents for providing an environment in which your children will learn in ways other than just books. They are learning to work together, the importance of teamwork, and the joy of a job well done. Please come and enjoy the garden with our staff and students.
