When the New Year’s Day kindergarten signs went up, a new wave of teachers and parents, led by the kindergarten parents’ group, the KIPP Alliance, had a lot of complaints.
One of the complaints was that the new signs were too big and had the word “KIPP” on the bottom.
This, the kindergarten teachers argued, violated the school district’s code of conduct.
One complaint was that students were confused about the school’s kindergarten program.
And the kindergarten teacher’s group countered that the signs were a way for parents to be heard, and that they were a sign of good parenting, and a way to encourage students to make the right choices.
The complaints were not uncommon.
At the beginning of 2017, more than 100,000 kindergartners across the country had their new school year started with the KIDS logo on the front and the word KIPP on the back.
The logo was chosen to represent the school as a whole, which means the kindergarten and the teachers are all part of the same community.
The kindergarten and teachers also had to agree to use the word and “KIDS” on each sign, to mark the start of the school year.
The parents, however, felt that the KITT logo on each front sign was too big.
They felt that a lot more of their children were going to school in kindergarten than in grade school.
This time, the school system did something they hadn’t done in the past: they made the kindergarten signs smaller.
When kindergarten started, the new sign was 3 inches by 5 inches and 4 inches wide.
It was supposed to be smaller because kindergarten teachers have to use a different size pencil to mark children.
They used the same size chalkboard to mark their pencils.
In kindergarten, the kindergartens and teachers worked together to come up with a solution.
One day in late March, the head of the kindergarten program, Lourdes Sanchez, came to the headmaster’s office and asked the district to make two new signs.
The school board agreed.
It is a big step, said Sanchez.
In fact, this was one of the last times a kindergarten program made a change to the sign format.
In the past, kindergartner’s and teacher’s groups had been fighting for better signage.
In 2017, they started to get a sense that the kindergarten sign format had changed.
The new kindergarten sign, for example, had the KISS sign instead of the K-CUP logo.
But it wasn’t until a few months later, when a group of kindergarten teachers and the kindergarten parent’s group started a campaign to get the district’s new kindergarten signage approved by the school board, that the board voted to approve it.
The KITT Alliance had lobbied for more space on the kindergarten front signs for the last few years, and it was time for it to be given the attention it deserved.
This is a very large school, and we need to be able to tell the whole story, said Lourdeas Sanchez.
Lourdas Sanchez said she has never seen such a large group of parents in her life.
We have to show them that they are part of our community, and they have a right to be there, she said.
The preschool sign was another example of a small change that the district made, she added.
In February, the district started using a different logo.
The teachers were excited about this.
It gave us a chance to really make a splash in a community that was very receptive to change, said Nancy Fenn, head of kindergarten and early childhood programs.
That was a really good moment.
And then, one day, the teachers and school board had to vote on a new logo.
Sanchez said the board was divided.
Some members were for it, while others didn’t want to change the logo.
In a rare twist, the board allowed the district not to use any other sign, and instead it had the school name written on the new logo, “School of KIPP.”
The school name is a reference to a group called the KITPs, which stands for kindergarten teachers, and also refers to the group of preschoolers who started it.
Sanchez, who said she is also the mother of two preschoolers, said she believes the board and the district both took the right decision.
I believe the school staff and I did what we had to do to get it approved.
Loursanchez said she thinks the kindergarteners and teachers who are on the KITS are doing a good job.
They are trying to make it work, she told the board.
And that is what the district is striving for every year.
They need to keep working, she continued.
They want to get better, and I think the new signage is the start.
In March, Loursalez was working with the district and the board to get new kindergarten and teacher signs approved by both the district board and by the state’s Department of Education.
After a year of waiting, the changes were finally approved in May
