KES PTO Loves Parent Volunteers!

colourful-volunteer-vector

The KES PTO Board loves its volunteers and has an easy way for all parents to get involved!

By using “SignUpGenius,” at any time of day, on any device, parents can sign-up for a single volunteer shift lasting just an hour to several shifts for the same event.  SignUpGenius displays all the volunteer shifts that need to be covered for the particular event, including specific times and responsibilities.  Parents don’t have to be available during school hours to volunteer.  Some shifts parents can do from home, such as, dropping off needed school supplies to the office or making event signs.

If you would like to be a PTO volunteer this school year, send us your email address at:  kentonelementarypto@gmail.com.

PAX Home Series…We’re Back!

Join us again for our PAX Home series!  In case you missed out on the FREE parenting tools last year, we are back and ready to get your family on track for a successful school year!

The PAX Good Behavior Game is a tool teachers at KES are using in their classrooms to help students with behavior.  The best part?  It’s also easy for parents to use at home!

The PAX Home sessions are the same as last year, so if you came before and found the tips useful, PLEASE encourage other parents to come see what it’s all about!  And as always, each session will take just 15 minutes of your time!
