Welcome to the 2015-16 school year at Kinard Elementary! It has been an extremely fast summer for families and staff who are all anticipating an exciting new school year! As a district, we have moved into the technological mindset of what an innovative classroom looks like and just how to bring that to life for our students. As a Leadership Model School, we create student leaders and we assist them in recognizing, stretching and reaching their own unique potentials. We work together, school to home, to design meaningful experiences and a positive, nurturing environment where discovery, responsibility, and leadership prevails. We communicate regularly with parents and provide engaging instruction and opportunities for our students on a daily basis. We are proud to have you partner with us this year at Kinard Elementary School where we are, “Leading the Way to Greatness!” Looking forward to an awesome year, Mrs. Kathryne S. Weathers Principal
Our custodians worked tirelessly throughout the summer preparing for the upcoming school year. They have cleaned, waxed, and painted, making our school the greatest school! Thanks to Mr. David Strain (Head), Mr. E.J. Matthews, Mrs. Julia Roberts, Mr. Eddie Carter, and a special thanks to Mr. A.J. Ciurlik for their commitment to excellence!

Kinard student Art Work has been shining at the Arts Council of York County in Rock Hill this past week. Our students, under the guidance of Ms. Lowman, created beautiful artwork as part of The Disappearing Frogs Project which brings awareness to the decline/disappearance of frogs and amphibians and inspires people to take personal action to protect our environment. We are so proud of our Kinard students!
