THANK YOU, BOOK FAIR VOLUNTEERS!
I wanted to take a minute to thank all of the wonderful volunteers we have had so far for the book fair. Our set up crew got the job done in one shift, so we were able to cancel the second shift. Our daily book fair volunteers have been patient and just plain awesome helping all the younger students fill out their wishlists. That makes the book fair so enjoyable for our students.
Thanks to the volunteers who have been helping with side projects during our lulls. The students will be thrilled to see all of the new titles available for check-out right after the book fair ends. It is always a big project to get the new books ready for the shelf, and we got a head start on it, today.
Lastly, thanks to Mrs. Green for taking over the Library Special the last couple of days. She has been working with the students playing Lightbots, which is an early phase of programming.
Thank you, everyone! —–Tamara Beeler

Calling all Room Parents and Reward Coordinators!
Welcome to the 2016-17 school year at KCSMA! Your role this year will be instrumental in making this an exceptional time for our kids. Some activities planned for this year include grade level service projects, a door decorating contest, and teacher rewards for collecting Box Tops.
Please plan to join us for the Room Parent and Rewards Coordinator Training:
5:30 – 6:15 pm
Note: If you are unable to attend the meeting but wish to be a room parent or rewards coordinator, please email@example.com. The training materials for either role will then be sent to you.
Calling all men who have an interest in making a difference in our children’s lives!
We are so grateful to have so many involved parents and grandparents at KCSMA. We see the effect it has on the students and love how their eyes light up and they stand taller when they are greeted by one of our volunteers.
In the mornings before school, our PTO Co-President Greg Maloney has been performing hallway duty. He greets the students, and already, Mrs. Frey has said she can see the difference in how the students react when they enter the school. Although students love their teachers and the staff, there is something special about being greeted by one of our enthusiastic volunteers.
Our FBI group (Fathers Being Involved) has taken a backseat to other PTO priorities, but we feel it is important to get it going again. We would like to start out by having any interested adult male* KCSMA family or friends spending time greeting the students each morning. All it will require is a few minutes each morning (any time you can spare between 7:00am and 7:45am) to say hello and give an encouraging nod or high five to students.
If you are interested, please let us know. We will have special FBI name badges made up in the next few days. You would just need to sign in at the office. Email firstname.lastname@example.org. if you are interesting in helping chair this committee, we would love to hear from you. More info can be found here.
*We recognize and appreciate the female volunteers in our school. There is compelling evidence, though, that having male role models have a direct influence on student success. We are looking to encourage our KCSMA men to take an active role.
ASP staff will be there to watch children, free of charge, if you need to bring yours.
