Our New Year Resolution? Learn About Other Cultures
Kimberlin had the privilege of hosting Taiwanese Exchange students for an afternoon. In preparation, the Knights spent their time learning about Taiwanese culture. Kimberlin students also got the opportunity to ask questions when Taiwanese students visited their classrooms.

Most Valuable Knight
Each week the Kimberlin staff votes for the Most Valuable Knight. This week's MVK is Kate Gilliland, our school nurse. Let’s read what our staff had to say about Kate...
Kate is a phenomenal nurse! She takes pride in her work and it shows! Kate always has a happy, willing-to-help spirit, and she is a joy to be around. Kate is always positive and encouraging; she makes others smile when we need it the most! Kate oversees the health of not just our kiddos but our staff while at school. Nurse Kate does an excellent job with our birthday board! It’s always festive and creative! She embraces a healthy lifestyle and is a great role model for all of us. Last week, it seemed like there was an unusually high number of throw-ups, nosebleeds, etc...and Kate took care of it with a smile.
