Juntos Para Los Niños

The Juntos Para Los Niños program is an innovative parent involvement program that reinforces literacy. The program focuses on parents as co-educators and stress the importance of the parent as a child’s first and most important teacher.  Through your involvement in your child’s education and by your child attending school regularly you will see academic growth and increased self-esteem. Each year 20-kindergarten students are selected to receive Juntos supports. Students are selected on the basis from the results from the Juntos Screening Tool. I will meet with children on a daily bases. During this time, we will reinforce skills being taught in the kindergarten classroom, educational tasks, read stories, and provide encouragement. The program also provides parent tips and welcomes all parents to come and visit the Juntos Para Los Niños Program. It is a wonderful program!

The teacher plans activities that foster learning through play, exploration and socialization and also the areas of social/ emotional, literacy and math development. The learning environment is set up to provide physical activity throughout the day so children can develop large motor skills. We monitor student achievement using New Mexico's Early Learning Outcomes Essential Indicators and Portfolio documentation forms.

Physical Education

Our goal in physical education is for everyone to learn to make healthy choices and feel successful when participating in a variety of activities. This enables students to develop a positive attitude toward physical activity and to develop healthy habits, which will hopefully continue throughout their lives.

Students will be encouraged to have fun and enjoy PE.  They will also be encouraged to participate to the best of their ability in a wide variety of activities.   

Student Assistance Team (SAT)

Each school has a Student Assistance Team (formerly Student Support Team) whose role is to ensure that students are provided the opportunity to succeed in the general education environment. Students are to be referred for special education evaluation only when interventions and modifications have been unsuccessful and data justifies possible separation from the general education program.

Video Club

Kit Carson is proud to present short videos created by 12 students from fourth and fifth grade. The Kit Carson Video Club is an after school club that promotes teamwork, attention to detail, precision, and much more. Each student will be part of a production team that includes the roles of a producer, director, editor, camera person, and screen writer. Before filming, each production group will be tasked to brainstorm about video ideas, create a detailed script, film, and edit their videos. As the year progresses, you will see their movies become more detailed and structured as they learn during this journey as a video club member. Check back periodically as the club will try to produce 2-3 short videos every other week. Videos will be uploaded on the Video Club's website for viewing. We look forward to hearing feedback about our videos and hope you enjoy our productions.
