On-site Parent Volunteering at Kingsley cancelled for the time being due to the Coronavirus per DG58 Guidelines

Hello Parents,

We received word from Principal Mel Sawisch tonight that in response to DG58 guidelines regarding the Coronavirus to "cancel all activities that include non-essential visitors until further notice" that this unfortunately includes parent volunteers (copy parents, library volunteers, PTA TAD lunches, etc.). Kingsley Administration will re-evaluate this plan before we leave for Spring Break (this is the same at all other schools in District 58). For now, the 1st Grade Parent TAD Lunch scheduled for March 26th will need to be postponed. Thank you for your patience, understanding, and support.

Help Celebrate Teachers Year Round at Kingsley

Our next Teacher Appreciation Day, hosted by First Grade parents, is just around the corner! Just to remind you what our monthly Teacher Appreciation Days are all about...

 

You may be used to Teacher Appreciation Week in May, but we wanted to show our appreciation all year and give every class the opportunity to participate. Each grade will be designated a month to host a celebration in honor of our staff at Kingsley. There will be two TAD (Teacher Appreciation Day) Leads who will organize the theme and details of the event, coordinate with Mrs. Glowicki about day of the event, and work with the list of volunteers to help support and donate goods. TAD leads will be in charge of reaching out to the volunteer list once it is established to support the event and for being at Kingsley during the event. How do you celebrate our staff? That's totally up to you. Host a breakfast, lunch, potluck, snacks, raffles... anything YOU want to do to show your appreciation.

 

First Grade parents will be hosting Thursday, March 26th. Please use the Sign-up Genius link below to volunteer your time and efforts! Any questions/comments can be sent to kingsley_pta@yahoo.com. Thank you so much for your continued support of our teachers and staff!
