Kraemer Middle School’s PRIDE Program provides thirty-minutes of academic intervention and enrichment four days every week. The school recently coordinated two special PRIDE enrichment sessions for their students.
Last week, Kraemer art teacher Julie Masone and activities director Ricky Castro planned a special holiday chalk-art contest in front of the library. Many students attended and completed an amazing tapestry of artwork for all students and staff to enjoy.
Then on December 17, the school’s social science team invited parent Peggy Huang to speak about her experience working in government offices. Students are currently studying the constitution and branches of government. Peggy was able to share her story of running for a seat in the House of Representatives. Currently, Mrs. Huang serves on the Yorba Linda City Council and has worked for United States Attorney’s Office and Sacramento County District Attorney. She stressed to students the importance of community service and civic engagement. Mrs. Huang also shared this message, “Know your community. Pick a cause you like. Work with passion.”
“We are grateful that our teachers continue to find ways to enrich KMS students education with these unique experiences,” Principal Michael Young shared.
