Welcome back to school!

The PTA warmly welcomes all new and returning families back to school. We have good things in store for the 2019-2020 school year. See below for upcoming events and dates.

Important!!! We are now using an online membership platform for our three parent group memberships (PTA, Dads’ Club and KEF). Totem is an online membership tool newly adopted by the National PTA. You will be directed to it during your Jumpstart process after updating all your emergency information. You can also access it here directly. https://jointotem.com/

We will have our new spirit wear available for sale as well as representatives from the PTA to answer questions, help you sign up to join our three parent groups, Dad’s Club, KEF and the PTA. Volunteer sign-ups for enrichment classes and other classroom volunteers will be posted as well.
