Welcome!

Welcome to the KCSMA Parent Teacher Organization!

We believe that children are motivated to become lifelong learners when they are part of a thriving learning environment that includes active participation by their families, schools, and their community.   Our PTO exists to provide support for the educational, social, and recreational needs of the students and to promote open communication between parents, teachers, and administration in an atmosphere that is consistent with the educational philosophy of KCSMA.  

Please visit this page often for the latest information on PTO sponsored events and volunteering opportunities.  If you use the FOLLOW feature, you will receive email notifications by email whenever there is a new post.   We use this page to post school information pertaining to activities of the PTO, but at times, we also share important school news.  You can also find us on Facebook and Twitter.

Although we provide support to KCSMA, the Parent Teacher Organization is a separate entity.  Therefore, for information related to school policies, procedures, or enrollment, please refer to the student handbook or contact the school directly.  You can find links to the KCSMA website and KCSMA Facebook Page on this page.
