PEACE DAY Homework: #KES Stands for Peace
On Friday, 9/21/18, our school celebrated International Peace Day by participating in a school wide assembly and recognized ways to be peaceful. When we find our own sense of peace, then we can share it with others. At KES we show our support for peace by being kind, loving, compassionate, and empathetic with each other. Each KES student will receive a copy of a picture of our entire school in the shape of a heart. Students were challenged by Mrs. Patterson to support peace in our school and community by sharing this picture with an individual person, a group of people or perhaps in a local community organization. Students can write a note on the heart, color a picture, or just post the picture somewhere. The purpose of this activity is to encourage our students to think about ways to share peace within their community and to also advertise that KES students promote peace. We look forward to hearing how KES hearts have made a difference in our community.
This week’s pre-academic skills are: letter/sound Dd; number 4; shape rectangle; color green. Please review these with your child. You can go on letter/number/shape/color hunts around your house and community. Discuss colors and shapes in your food, clothes, home, vehicle, books, etc
Book Fair is Oct. 9-12! We will soon start signups for volunteers to help with set up the week before (Oct.3), shopping assistance during fair (Oct.9-12) and take-down (Oct.15).
We will also be collecting donations for the teacher raffle prizes for Teacher Preview day. We will need 20+ donations to give away which could range anywhere from a $5-$25 for our teachers to win! You can start gathering donations and drop them off any time between now and Oct.1 in the library.
Save the date! The Kaechele Fall Festival will be on Friday, October 12 from 4:30-7pm. More details and volunteer opportunities will be coming soon.

Please note: In past years, PTA membership dues and annual giving donations were bundled as one payment. This year, we separated the PTA Fee of $6 from the annual giving donations. This change was implemented to be compliant with upcoming Virginia PTA requirements.
Please log into your MSA account and confirm that you joined the PTA and paid your PTA Membership Fee. Please find this under MY ACCOUNT, PURCHASES. If you signed up on a paper form, your payment is also viewable in MSA. If you need a registration link to access MSA, please email Mary Brewer at email@example.com. If you do not see a purchase record for the PTA Membership, then you are not currently a Member.
