Message from the Principal

We are starting another terrific year at Kaleidoscope! It was wonderful to see so many families during registration and Open House. The staff members have been excited to get back in the classroom and are well prepared to challenge your child intellectually, while meeting their social/emotional needs and making it enjoyable.

I am looking forward to a great year and please know I am available every day to discuss any feedback about our school, good or bad. It is important to me to get feedback on what is and isn’t working in our school in order to be the best middle school in the Fox Valley.

Together, we can make a difference and open the door to a world of possibilities for all of our students at Kaleidoscope. I look forward to hearing from you and seeing you at the various functions throughout the year.
