Good morning KCA faculty and staff!
I want to take a moment to talk about Grandparents' Day with you. This year, the event will be held on Friday, October 9, which means we have just over a month to prepare.
After brainstorming with several members of the admin team, we've decided to move forward with an adventure theme. This gives us quite a bit of freedom to choose from a variety of crafts (animal, mountain climbing, airplanes, etc.) I'm hoping it also inspires you, as teachers, to add something unique to your class performance on the 9th.
During our winter Parents' Day event, several of you came up with clever ways to "go tropical." From unique music to the use of posters and more dramatic readings, our students really gave the audience a great show. I heard from countless audience members who appreciated the extra work that went into the assembly! Many of these families attend both grandparents' day and parents' day each year, and this is a great way for us to showcase our talented students and creative teachers!
In the near future, I'll be ordering crafts for the Pre-K through 5th grade students to complete. As always, I'll keep ease and ability in mind. They will be delivered to the school within the next week or two, and we'll do our best to get them out to you quickly! Please return the completed crafts back to my office by Wednesday, October 7. That gives our volunteers time to organize the decor and prepare it for hanging.
This year, I won't be there to help with the details, but I know that Kevin, Heather, and the others who have stepped up in the past, will be doing their best to ensure we run smoothly!
Due to the upcoming holiday weekend and multiple away games, we have decided to move our PTF event to next week -- September 10. We hope that this will allow more of our KCA family members to attend. The event will be held at 6:30 p.m. and childcare will be available for kids in the Pre-K through 3rd grade. Students will enjoy popcorn and movies during the event. If you'd like to reserve a spot for your child, please contact our office manager, Julie Dean, at 301-994-3080 or via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our PTF event is a wonderful way for you to learn about what's happening at KCA this year -- as well as sign up for volunteer opportunities! Additionally, it's your chance to reserve a time slot for lower school parent-teacher conferences on September 22.
We look forward to seeing you next week!
