Mister Rogers 9/11 clip

A message from Fred Rogers, an icon of Early Childhood Education, on the 1st anniversary of 9/11. It stays relevant and can be applied to the covid-19 crisis we are facing today. "I like you just the way you are..."


Ensuring the health, safety, and security of our community is the most important priority we have as a School. We understand the deep trust you place in us each day when you leave your child in our loving care. At KHM, we do not take that responsibility lightly.


With our new Virtual STEM Summer Camp, summer can be both safe AND fun!

We’ve teamed up with Endeavor Schools Virtual Camps and Launch STEM to provide families with half day Virtual STEM Summer Camp from June 22nd through July 31st! Children who have completed grades K-7th will experience exciting and intelligent hands-on learning as they build, problem solve, code and experiment, with our remote educators.

For more information regarding the 2020 Virtual STEM Summer Camp, including a comprehensive list of themes, scheduled sessions, or to register your child, please visit:


Our Pledge to Our Children

Dear Children,

As your educators and care givers, we want the very best for you. We strive to unleash your full potential as global citizens, and we take the importance of setting a positive example seriously. Our hearts are broken after witnessing the injustice imposed upon Mr. George Floyd last week and we feel compelled to make a pledge to stand by you.

At Endeavor Schools, we are united by our fundamental core value of “RESPECT.” We believe in RESPECT FOR ALL. We celebrate our differences, recognizing the richness that comes from our diversity. We believe in the power of the human spirit, and strive to bring joy, kindness, care, and compassion to the children we serve. You are our future, and we want a better future for you.

Over a half century ago, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered one of the most impactful speeches of all time from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. As part of his speech, he invited us to share in his dream for our future -

"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character."

We share Mr. King’s dream and want to make a pledge in his honor, and to honor the lives of those individuals we have lost to racism.

Our Pledge to you:

We pledge to care for you and support you, no matter the color of your skin, or your race, ethnicity, religion, or gender.

We pledge to help you form the character you will need to build a better future.

We pledge to provide you with a peaceful and nurturing learning environment.

We pledge to embrace our differences and celebrate diversity.

We believe in you and have faith that peace and unity will prevail. We believe in your future. 05/26/2020
