A Message from the Principal:

November 2, 2023

Happy Fall, Kootenai Families! 

As we jump into a season of giving thanks, I want to share how grateful I am for our teachers, staff, students, and YOU! Thank you for entrusting us with your children every day and partnering with us to ensure their success. 

I can hardly wait to have you join us for Parent-Teacher conferences, which will start next week and go through November 16th. Your child’s teacher will be sending a link to sign up for a conference, which is a great time to hear about what we LOVE about your child, in addition to speaking about your child’s progress so far this school year. 

In addition, next week we will kick off Idaho Family Reading Week, The Crows Nest, Quarter 1 Awards, and after Thanksgiving Break we will have Kootenai Family Movie Night. Please check out our newsletter for more details or follow us on social media (Facebook & Instagram). We look forward to seeing you! 

In gratitude,

Summer Tigert, Principal
