Mrs. Richard

Mrs. Kate Richard is our Extend-A-Day Coordinator here at SKDS, where she has been working since 1998. Extend-A-Day is an extension of the 4K program. Mrs. Richard plans reinforcement and challenging activities to build upon the learning that takes place in the 4K classes. Children may choose to participate in the Extend-A-Day program up to five days each week.

Mrs. Richard was happy to have the Extend-A-Day position open up at just the right time. When her youngest daughter went to Kindergarten, the position became available. Mrs. Richard said the job “fit right into her schedule” and she has been enjoying working with Extend-A-Day ever since. What is Mrs. Richard’s favorite thing about her job? She shared, “SKDS has a great environment to work in. The students, staff and faculty are great to work with.”

Mrs. Richard grew up near Iron Ridge and went to High School in Horicon. Currently, she lives in Beaver Dam with her family. Her husband Randy retired from John Deere. She enjoys spending time with Randy and her three daughters, KristyLee, Tiffany and Paige. She enjoys planning vacations and improving her house and yard. One of her all-time favorite things to do is shopping with her girls.

Mrs. Richard’s advice for students: “Never be afraid to ask a question.”

Her favorite quotation: “The only way to learn to love is to love.”


Q. Do you have before and after school care?

A. Yes.  We offer this service through the YMCA, called SACC (School Age Child Care), which has several sites throughout the city. For more information on the program contact the YMCA.
For families in the 4K program and our 3 year old preschool program, we offer an Extend-A-Day program. This versatile Extend-A-Day is an optional extension to both programs.  For morning 4K students and 3 year old preschool students, class is from 8:15 until 11:00AM. and Extend-A-Day is from 11:00 until 3:15.  For afternoon 4K students, Extend-A-Day is offered from 8:10 until 12:15 and class is from 12:15 until 3:00PM.

4K students may participate in the Extend-A-Day program one day a week, or up to five days a week. For three year old preschool, Extend Day is only available opposite their class days on Monday and Wednesday. The rate for Extend-A-Day is $12 per day plus $2.25 for school lunch (students may bring a cold lunch and purchase milk for .40). Schedules must be turned in on a weekly basis for each following week.

Our Extend-A-Day Coordinator works closely with our Early childhood teachers to reinforce, enrich, and expand the learning that occurs in those classes. There is also a rest period, recess, story time, etc. included in the daily schedule for Extend-A-Day.
