A Note of Thanks

Thank you to our Kingsley families for another great book fair!  While we did not quite meet our goal, we still put over 200 brand new books into our classrooms and library!


Teachers got to shop the fair with the $2000 in profits. In addition, they were so excited to receive books purchased by their students! 


Another huge thank you to our book fair volunteers. Whether you made copies, helped at the register, or babysat the books we couldn’t have done this without you!  We are looking forward to more book fair fun in the spring.  Kingsley families are the best!!!

Help Celebrate Teachers Year Round at Kingsley

Our next Teacher Appreciation Day of the year is just around the corner! Fourth Grade parents, you're up! Just to remind you what our monthly Teacher Appreciation Days are all about...

Here at Kingsley we are celebrating teachers year round! 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 Appreciate 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.

Fourth Grade parents will be hosting Friday, November 15th. 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!
