Dear KCA families,
I’m sending out our regular Eagle Notes email today in anticipation of tomorrow’s forecast. Currently, it appears that we may get some snow in the morning, which will turn into a wintry mix and end with rain in the afternoon. Please keep an eye on St. Mary’s Public School’s website (www.smcps.org) for updates. Temperatures looks like they may rise in the afternoon, so our plan to hold Parent/Teacher conferences on Thursday should be fine. We will send out an email/text alert if something changes.
Enrollment is open for current students! This is the perfect time to re-enroll your child – or add a sibling. The last day to opt-out is February 28. If we haven’t heard from you by then, your account will be billed at $85 per student on March 1. We’ll open enrollment to the public on March 4. If you have questions about the enrollment process, please don’t hesitate to ask. You can reach Mrs. Barbara Mashtare via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
PARENT TEACHER CONFERENCES – THURSDAY
Upper school teachers will be available from 12:30 – 6 p.m. in the high school commons for 7th– 12th grade families who wish to meet. Lower school conferences are held by appointment only in classrooms. Please connect with your child’s teacher if you need to schedule or confirm a time.
Please note: THURSDAY, FEB. 21

AUCTION DONATION DROP-OFF THIS SATURDAY
We’ll be holding another drop-off event this Saturday in our main office! If you have an item that you’ve been considering donating, please bring it by the school between 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. We’ll be on hand to accept it and can provide you with a tax deductible receipt. Thank you in advance for your support!
SPELLING BEE –CONGRATULATIONS
Congratulations to the five contestants in our middle school spelling Bee! Violet D’Lima, Bella Owens, Jason Chen, Charlynne Lowe and Matthew Tigrett learned hundreds of words to prepare for this event. After 30 rounds of spelling words, Matthew Tigrett took first place and Charlynne Lowe was the runner up. Some of the most difficult words these students attempted included“tergiversation” and “felicitously”. Both Matthew and Charlynne will move on to the regional event in Baltimore on March 23.
