Can you believe it? There’s just three weeks until Santa Shop starts at the elementary school. This is such an exciting time of year for the students (and adults), but we need help to make this event happen.
We are working on the class shopping schedule and will have it to you as soon as we can. We invite parents to shop with their children at the designated class times and we also need volunteers to help others shop and wrap their gifts.
A Sign Up Genius with days and times will be posted and emailed when the shopping schedule is complete.
Please remember that any volunteers must complete a background check for the school year of 2017-18 to be able to help.
Last but not least, we are seeking donations of new or very gently used items to sell at the shop, especially dad/grandpa/big brother items. We also go through lots of Scotch tape wrapping the presents and can always use donations of rolls of Scotch tape. Stay tuned. Thank you!
The elementary school is looking for volunteers this week and next to help put together packets for our upcoming round-ups. If you have questions and/or can help with this need, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
The elementary school is looking for help on Wednesday, January 25th, Thursday, January 26, and Monday, January 30th. The Mobile Dentist will be at school all day and they are in need of volunteers to help with bringing students back/forth from class. Any time you can offer would be great! Please let Deb know if you have any time to spare. (email@example.com) Thank you!
Junior Achievement will be starting soon at KCE, grades K-3 will be participating this year. JA provides all the materials for each classroom. 1 (or 2) volunteers are needed to lead the instruction. There are 9 classrooms that need to be covered, so 6 more volunteers are needed. There are 5 classroom visits that are approx. 30 minutes long over a 5 week period. Preparation time is approx. half hour for each class. This is a very rewarding volunteer opportunity and a great way to give back to the school.
Potential volunteers can be prior students of KCE, business partners in the community or parents of children in higher grades. Class instruction will start next week. However, some classes could start a week later, if needed, to secure volunteers.
Feel free to contact Sara Schutt in the Elementary office for more information.

Our next popcorn sale will be on March 4th, with popping taking place on the 3rd. We will start popping around 9:30 am. Many hands make light work and we could also use some help on Friday morning (the 4th) selling/delivering the popcorn at 8:15. If you are able to help for even an hour, it would be greatly appreciated! Just show up in the PTCO room off of the atrium in the elementary school.
The Elementary needs someone that is willing and able to check in with teachers and walk any younger students to the stage for their pictures. If this is something you could help out with, please contact Sara Schutt at email@example.com. Thank you!
