Welcome to KMSA!
This year, Karen M. Siegel Academy will again partner with Doris Sanders Learning Center and Jean O’Dell learning Center to host a prom for our high school students. The venue for this special event will be Lake Region High School, where we will have food, fun, and lots of dancing for our students who can bring two guests. Our first ever “Mardi Gras” theme, will surely make an evening we won’t soon forget. If your KMSA student is in grades 9-12 you will be receiving more information in the very near future.
On February 6th and 7th, a select group of teachers, paraprofessionals, and support staff received Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS) training. This elite group of trainees represented classrooms from all over campus, working in classrooms with a wide range of abilities. The Picture Exchange Communication System is a research-based communication program owned by Pyramid Educational Consultants inc. The program is broken down into six phases and is based on applied behavior analysis. Many of our students have benefited from the program over the years and continue to do so. We look forward to teaching our students these indispensable communication skills so they can become independent and valuable members of our community.
