Kennesaw Charter Science And Math Academy PTO

Last minute N.U.T. Pass, Spirit Night, & Other reminders

4/14/2017 $1 N.U.T. Pass

It’s last minute, but we need your help!  We would like to send several teachers to visit STEM workshops at local schools in May, but we need to raise $500 to cover the needed costs for this effort.  You can help support this effort by participating in a N.U.T. Pass this Friday.  Have your student pay $1 to be out of uniform, and they can wear their favorite STEM inspired shirt.  It could be Star Wars, Minecraft, or anything you can relate to science, math, engineering, or technology.  It is okay be creative with the connection, so have fun with it.  Make sure your child can tell us how it relates to STEM if we ask them in the hall…it might be worth a prize.  😉

Field Day T-shirt orders due Friday, 4/14/2017
