It is a tradition that was done in Canton where I
was principal, and one that was the highlight and culmination activity of each
school year. I am hoping it will be a great last day school year memory for our
students and staff.
I have totally enjoyed my first year back in Galesburg after being in
other districts for the last ten years. I have lived in the Galesburg/Knoxville
area my whole life. I actually lived on Baird Avenue when I was a young girl
attending Costa and Galesburg High School. It has been a joy getting back in
touch with families I have known for many years and getting to know the students
of King. It is so much fun to learn about connections with families, and we even
have some of my former students’ from Galesburg High School children at King.
I am looking forward to summer
break. This year has been a huge learning curve for me, but I will be excited to
start the new year in August. Have a wonderful safe
Summer vacation is rapidly approaching and students will
be home for the next three months!! Keeping children busy and engaged during
this time is always a big challenge for parents. As a parent of four children,
there were many times when my children would argue and fight and I thought I
would pull my hair out!! When
children get into arguments, sometimes they do things without thinking such as
lashing out, name calling, or physical aggression.
It is very normal for us to want to jump in and solve our children’s
problems for them. After all they are the most precious possession we have! But
it won’t help them learn how to cope when we aren’t around. So here are some
useful tips to help teach your child (ren) to problem solves:
Welcome to King! Mrs. Hoschek is our principal. She enjoys working with students, parents and staff members.
