Kennesaw Charter Science And Math Academy PTO

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, staff, and administration in an atmosphere that is consistent with the educational philosophy of KCSMA.

Congratulations to STEM challenge winners

Congratulations to Lily Perez and Mfreke Johnson for winning the Fall STEM challenge.  Students were asked to submit a prototype of something that Ikea would sell, but it had to be made out of paper (recycled if possible).  Lily (left pic) made a sheep, and Mfreke made a working vacuum.

Thank you to all of the volunteers who helped during the fundraiser distribution.  Big thanks to all who stayed and helped haul all the orders that were not picked up into the school.   We did not anticipate so much would not be picked up, and we really appreciate you staying late and moving it.  Thanks to all the kids who helped.  They have been awarded extra DOJO points for their awesome attitudes and hard work.

Parents, if you did not pick up your order, please email kcsmapto@gmail.com.  An alternate pick up date will be decided.
