Meet Our Principal

Robert Butler, M.Ed.

Greetings Bobcat Families,


I am excited about beginning my fourth year as principal at KMS! It has been an honor to serve the KMS students, staff, and parents the past three years. I look forward to working with the KMS community to make 2020- 21 our best year yet.


The KMS administrative team and staff is confident that we have laid the foundation the past three years that will allow us to take our students' educational experience to the next level. This year, as we all know, presents a special set of challenges that we must overcome for our students. To support this belief we have selected "Whatever It Takes!" as the theme for the year. We know that regardless of the challenges presented by Covid 19, the KMS school community will do "Whatever It Takes!" to meet the educational, emotional, and health/safety needs of our students. Education is a partnership between a school and the community. That will never be more true than this school year. I look forward to collaborating with you and the KMS staff to provide a safe and nurturing learning environment where we collectively challenge our students to reach their academic, social, and emotional potential. Whether your student is a remote or an in-person learner that goal remains the same.


The 2020- 21 school year will bring many successes and undoubtedly a few challenges. As we venture into this unprecedented year together, I ask that we celebrate our successes and extend each other grace as we work through challenges and bumps in the road. As always, if you ever have any questions, concerns, or things to celebrate about your student(s) my door is always open. Feel free to contact me anytime. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of the “KMS Family.”


Go Bobcats!
