Information for Parents and Guardians

Middle school is the most challenging time in growing up. The ages of our students can range from 10 to 15 and the maturity levels of our students are even more diverse. Parents and guardians play a critical role in the successful navigation of adolescence.  It's important for us to develop healthy relationships with our families so that our students have the strongest system of support possible.  We want our parents to be heavily involved in the activities of our students because they are our students' first teachers. You can help our students to make good choices and to search out opportunities to help them develop into the young adults they are striving to become.

We're so excited that your student is at Kalama Intermediate and can't wait to watch them grow! Below you will find helpful guides and resources so that you are up-to-date on school procedures and communications.
