Ms. Coto's Welcome Back Letter 2021-22


Dear Parents and Guardians of KBK8:

It is my pleasure and take great pride and joy in welcoming you to the 2020-21 school year. It is exciting to be part of this community of great students, parents, and teachers at Key Biscayne K-8 Center.

KBK8 prides itself in being a “Community of Learners” where our students and staff look for opportunities to learn from each other in our daily lives.  We are committed to high academic expectations, mutual respect, and social responsibility and self-advocacy.

The staff at KBK8 has high expectations for all our students.  We have even higher expectations of ourselves. This year, the KBK8 staff will continue to dedicate our focus on improving student learning for all students.  We will continue to work diligently through collaboration to discuss teaching strategies to meet the needs of our students. We will continue to improve student learning through improved instruction focusing on aligned curriculum, data collection, and assessment. 

Parents and community members are partners in educating KBK8’s students.  We encourage parents and guardians to become active in their student’s education.  Please join our Parent Teacher Association.  Our PTA is vital and strong, providing valuable support for our school through volunteering, providing classroom mini-grants, funding extra-curricular activities, and more!  

As the Principal of this amazing school, I believe that in order to be successful, we need to partner with you, the families of our students.  We need your support as we ask students to practice reading, writing, and mathematics at home. Throughout the year, I will continue to meet (virtually or in-person) and speak with many of you, as well as to learn about your children and family.  If there is anything I or any of my administrators can do to help or provide answers to questions you may have, please let us know.

We appreciate your continued support.  We invite you to visit KBK8’s new and improved webpage will go live on Monday, August 30th, 2021 to be a part of our programs and activities, and to become a part of our “Community of Learners”.  Thank you for sharing your children with us. They are the reason that we are here.

We are honored to be entrusted with this critical component of their lives.  I pride myself in the safety and security that we diligently and consistently maintain for our students and our staff.  We will continue to stay safe throughout another Covid-19 start.  Thank you for sharing your children with us.

Respectfully Yours,

Ms. Michelle L. Coto, Principal
