Dear Parent/ Guardian,
The mission of KAPPA IV is to ensure that we maintain and deliver a quality education to all of our scholars. To this end, the KAPPA IV community continually strives to maintain a safe, orderly, nurturing and academically enriched environment at all times. Unfortunately, incidents involving cell phones, iPods and other electronic devices interfere with the delivery of instruction. Please be reminded that the Regulation of the Chancellor states “cell phones, ipods, beepers and other communication devices are prohibited on school property.”
Please note that if your child is found to be in possession of any of the above prohibited items, the item(s) will be confiscated and will only be returned to a parent or guardian. Thank you for your continuous support and dedication to KAPPA IV. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at (212) 690-4963.

Welcome Back Letter
September 11, 2012
Dear Parents and school community,
Welcome to the 2012-2013 school year! I am excited to report that although budget cuts continue to impact our organization, we continue to be an outstanding middle school choice for scholars in District 5. Our quest in preparing our scholars for leadership and achievement is evidenced by our teachers unwavering commitment to recognize and celebrate all individual children’s unique qualities. KAPPA IV’s nurturing and challenging environment operates from a child-centered philosophy which explores all available options to provide our scholars with a quality education full of opportunities and possibilities. In keeping with a philosophy of enhancing our scholars' individual development and talents each and every day, we have introduced various initiatives and classes for the 2012-2013 school year. The new initiatives and classes were designed to help maximize both student academic and social capabilities. The continuation of our debate program as well as well as the addition of foreign language, art and music will invariably provide your child with the necessary tools for college and career readiness.
We encourage you to check our website regularly in order to stay updated on the status of upcoming school events, important information and reminders. Finally, keep in mind that we strive to maximize our resources and efforts in order to provide each individual scholar with an opportunity to succeed. If you are interested in volunteering and/or have any ideas please be sure to share your comments with a member of the school community. On behalf of the KAPPA IV family we are looking forward to making the 2012-2013 school year a success for all!
