Classroom Observations: Elementary Level (1-6) parents may begin observing the week of Sept. 17. Children’s House (P3-K) parents may begin observing their child’s class during the week of Oct. 1. Please contact the teacher to set up a time. “Montessori Classroom Observation Guideline” are available in the office.

Avenues of Communication: Our official KCPS website contains news, FAQs, calendar, staff directory, and much more. Our Facebook page is updated regularly and is a great place to ask questions. Wednesday folders come home with students weekly and contain Ms. White's Newsletter, “Principal Pages”. Principal White tweets regularly HERE. Our PTA website can help you get plugged into the PTA. Last but not least, one of the best ways to get information is by attending our monthly PTA meetings and getting involved!

Yearbook Photos: Please make sure to take lots of pictures at school events, field trips, etc. to include in our yearbook.

Parent Involvement Matters

Our first 2018-2019 PTA meeting is on Thurs., Sept. 13. Dinner and childcare (ages 3 and up) are provided. Dinner begins at 5:30 p.m. The meeting will begin at 6 pm. Please RSVP HERE! PTA meetings are open to the entire school body. If you would like to be a voting member, you can pay your $5 dues HERE. In an effort to decrease waste, we encourage families to bring their own dishes and napkins. 

Our PTA is looking for chairs/co-chairs for the following committees: Back to School BBQ, Book Fair,  Green Team, Volunteers, and Membership. To help out or for more info, please email PTA President, Tim Hill. If being a committee chair seems intimidating, please consider being a Room Parent. Room Parents facilitate communication between parents, PTA, and teachers and support teachers in needs that may arise. Most Room Parents plan and execute classroom parties and help with teacher appreciation efforts. If you'd like to get involved as a Room Parent please to talk to your child's teacher or contact Comica!
