Dear KCA families,
I hope you're having a great week! If you can believe it, we've officially entered the second quarter of our 2018-19 school year. Report cards for lower school will be sent home in today's Golden Envelopes. Upper school report cards will go home with students on Friday. If you log into RenWeb, you can see your child's final grades and teachers' comments for the first quarter. Once you're in the parent portal, click on Student Information on the left-hand column. Then, click on "Grades" in the same menu. Finally, select the "Report Card" tab in the center menu. If you have any questions about using RenWeb, please don't hesitate to let us know!
CARNIVAL & CRAFT/VENDOR FAIR - THIS WEEKEND!
We hope that you'll be able to attend our AMAZING event this weekend! We'll begin at 12 p.m. and run until 6 p.m. This event is open to the community and admission is FREE! Tickets are $1 each, and most rides and attractions are between 1 and 3 tickets. Our carnival games will be stocked with some amazing prizes and we have some incredible food planned for the day. (Check out our In Touch for a list of what's coming!) Thank you for sharing this event on social media with your friends and neighbors, as this is a great community awareness event for KCA. We are still in need of some volunteers for the day of the event to ensure all of our games are covered! If you have some time on Saturday and would like to take tickets or hand out prizes, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
PICTURE RE-TAKE & CLASS PHOTO DAY - THIS FRIDAYI
If you would like your child to retake his or her individual student portrait, please call Barbara Mashtare at 301-994-3080. This ensures that we know to call your student out of class to re-do their photos.
DRESS CODE FOR CLASS PICTURES
Instead of a casual Friday dress, we are asking all students to wear their REGULAR UNIFORM this Friday. Please send your child to school wearing khaki bottoms and a KCA polo shirt. This helps ensure that our class photos look unified.
BOX TOP CONTEST UPDATE
We're getting close! Several of our grades are now well on their way to reaching the 700 Tops Goal!
MOMS IN PRAYER
Our Moms in Prayer group is looking for additional volunteers to meet on Mondays and pray for both staff and students. I've added information about this group to this week's In Touch newsletter (below). Parents who participate in this weekly group receive volunteer hours for their time.
ELEMENTARY DRAMA PROGRAM - BEGINS NOVEMBER 14
Do you have a 3rd, 4th, or 5th grade student who is interested in theater? We're sending home a flyer today for our lower school drama program! As it has in previous years, this group meets after school on Mondays and Wednesdays until 5 p.m. Students will learn theater techniques and have multiple performance opportunities throughout the school year. If you have questions please email Mrs. McWhorter via email at email@example.com.
As always, thank you for reading through our In Touch newsletter below! Whether you read it online, through the weekly Eagle Notes email, or the paper copy, we appreciate your taking the time to stay on top of what's happening here on campus! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to let me know.
