Dear KCA families,
We are quickly approaching Thanksgiving week, and that means that our schedule adjusts as well. While the In Touch (below) captures many of the events, here are some important highlights to be aware of:
Spirit Night at Olde Town Pub
The MacDonald family is hosting a Spirit Night tomorrow evening, November 15, from 4 – 9 p.m. at their restaurant in Leonardtown. If you’ve never been to the Olde Towne Pub, it offers a great variety of food, including pizzas, flatbread sandwiches, burgers, salads and their famous chicken wings. Whether you dine in or take a dinner to go, non-uniform passes will be available inside! A portion of the evening’s proceeds will be donated to benefit the senior class trip.
Next Week’s Schedule
During Thanksgiving week, KCA is open on both Monday and Tuesday. Please note that if you have a 6th – 12th grade student, school will run on a Monday schedule both days. On Tuesday, however, students will have their normal Tuesday elective. Lower school students will not be affected by the schedule change.
No School – November 21 – 23
In honor of the Thanksgiving holiday, we will be off on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
If you purchase Scrip cards, now is the time to stock up! During this 24-hour sale, you can get incredible bonus rebates on Scrip cards from a variety of retailers. ThankScriping will happen on Tuesday, November 20. If you don’t have a Scrip account and would like one, please contact Heather Waller at email@example.com to get set up for this exciting shopping opportunity!
KCA will be participating in the global day of giving this year! Giving Tuesday is a great way for people to give back in a way that is meaningful for them. On November 27, join KCA for #GivingTuesday. More information will be posted soon!
If you have a 6th – 8th grade student who enjoys spelling and has an interest in participating in the Scripps National Spelling Bee, please join us on Thursdays after school! More information is in this week’s In Touch.
Lunch Order Forms
Due to the short week, we are including a two-sided form for next week’s lunch order form that includes November 26 – 30. If you would like to order lunch for your Pre-K – 8th grader, please ensure that you fill out both sides and send them back by this Friday.
Fall Drama – Dinner Theater this Friday!
Come out this Friday and enjoy four student-directed Hans Christian Andersen tales! Tickets are available at the front desk and dinner will be served at 6 p.m. We look forward to seeing you there!
Middle School Science Fair
On Friday afternoon, all middle school science projects will be on display in the Commons from 4- 6 p.m. This is a great opportunity for your student to show off their efforts while appreciating other projects! Teachers are asking that families take home their projects on Friday evening, if possible.
As always, if you have any questions, don't hesitate to reach our front desk by calling 301-994-3080.
