The KIS PTO will be hosting our annual KIS Family Fun night this Friday, March 15 from 6pm-8:30pm in the KIS Gymnasium. Please refer to the previous email specifically sent for this event containing all details.
Wednesday, March 20 will be our 4th Annual KIS Invention Convention. Set up for the convention will be Tuesday, March 19. If it is necessary for you to bring materials to the school for your student, please enter via the main office and someone will assist you. 5th Grade student projects will be on display during the school day of Wednesday for all other students to see. We are excited to have a professional team of engineers/scientists joining us for the day with the difficult task of judging these projects. 4th Grade class projects will also be on display for other students to view and ask questions about. The school day portion of the convention is not a parent event.
We invite you and your family to view all projects on the night of March 20 at our KIS community walk through. This will be a community event taking place in the KIS gymnasium from 6pm to 8pm where winning projects will be revealed. Those winning students will then have an opportunity to spend a day in May at Rockwell Automation with a team of engineers. We look forward to seeing you at the Community Walk Through!
Next, We would like for you to participate with your student(s) in our Right to Read Week activities from March 18 through March 22. Students will be engaged in activities throughout each school day to recognize these events and we extend a special daily home challenge for your family. We would encourage all families to participate in the following activities for at least 20 minutes on the designated night.
