Dear King-Westwood Jaguar Families,

It is always a pleasure to have Dr. Rice visit our third grade students each year. One of the things he talks to our students about is their dreams and aspirations, as well as The Kalamazoo Promise and what that means for their families and their future. It is a good reminder that our students can do anything and be anyone they choose; empowering the student and allowing him/her the opportunity to dream.

Dr. Rice asked each of the children what they wanted to be when they grew up. We heard lots of wonderful dreams of becoming a teacher, police officer, fire fighter, scientist, inventor, veterinarian, doctor, engineer, journalist, and more. As you can imagine, there are some students that dream about being a professional athlete. Dr. Rice gently reminds those students they need to have a career choice for after their career as a professional athlete is over. All are fabulous examples of our children dreaming about their life goals. These are also reminders to the adults that we must do everything in our power to ensure these young people are given the opportunity to live their dreams and make their goals a reality. They also
discussed that each requires college or some sort of post-high school education and/or training.

The Kalamazoo Promise is there to help students achieve their goals and live that dream. It is a wonderful gift, but it is not free. It takes hard work, diligence, perseverance, and making sure every one of our students graduate from high school. King-Westwood has a great record of students who have taken advantage of The Kalamazoo Promise and are successful in their post-college careers. Thank you for contributing to the success of our King-Westwood students who are well on their way to being able to accept the gift of The Kalamazoo Promise.

I look forward to seeing you around school in the days and weeks to come.
Best Regards,
Sandie Lundquist, Principal
