Do you know of a business or individual family who may want to sponsor our Accelerated Reader program? For a $100 donation, we will put the family/company’s name on the back of this year's AR t-shirt as an AR sponsor. Our PTA and both libraries are huge sponsors providing the website access and some prizes. These additional sponsors will help to offset the cost of the t-shirts. All students who earn 100 AR points and keep their average percent correct at 80% or higher will earn the t-shirt. This is an excellent way to sponsor this activity, and the business name will be advertised throughout the remainder of the year and next year. We need to have donations and company names (logos may be provided as well and we will try to accommodate those on our shirts) turned in by Friday, March 14. Please contact Darlene Miller at 539-7772 if you have questions regarding this opportunity. Thank you!
A huge CONGRATULATIONS goes to our KES Teachers of the Year:
Allison Campbell, Second Grade
Diane Eubanks, Special Education
Virginia LaRue, Fourth Grade
Debbie Smith, Kindergarten

We are having a safety issue with our dismissal procedures. Parents are taking children from the class line making it difficult to monitor who is leaving and to verify if they are leaving with an approved person. This is our procedure for dismissal. We encourage you to pick up your child through the dismissal line instead of coming into the office every day. But, if you insist on checking your child out each day, here are the procedures for dismissal.
