KES PTO Board has just started using “SignUpGenius,” a website that has online sign-up sheets to organize PTO volunteers for upcoming spring events.

Parent volunteers who have already provided the PTO with their email addresses will receive SignUpGenius email invitations for each volunteer event.  SignUpGenius will display all the volunteer shifts that need to be covered for the particular event, including specific times and responsibilities.

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.  Volunteers will also receive email or text reminders from SignUpGenius prior to their volunteer shift.

If you would like to be a PTO volunteer this spring, be sure that we have your email address, so you can receive the SignUpGenius invitation emails for upcoming PTO events.  Please provide your email address to: Christina Cross, PTO Secretary —



Blizzard Bag assignments were sent home on Friday, December 19th.  Teachers prepared three days of assignments that support current or previously learned concepts.  The Blizzard Bag assignments will allow us to exceed Ohio’s five-calamity day allocation by three additional days.

Should we exceed the five days, each completed blizzard bag will count toward a day of attendance for you child.  Since the Blizzard Bags support our classroom instruction, we highly recommend students complete the assignments regardless of the number of days of school missed.

Any student who completes all three days of assignments and turns them into their classroom teacher by January 23rd will receive a small treat and have their name placed in a drawing for miscellaneous prizes.

This desire to get the work turned in early will allow important concepts to be reviewed before state testing and prevent assignments from being misplaced.  However, your child will only be docked attendance days if he/she does not complete the Blizzard Bag assignments for days beyond the 5 calamity days.

***Monday, January 12th was our sixth calamity day.  Therefore Blizzard Bag 1 needs to be completed and turned in as soon as possible.  If your child is missing a Blizzard Bag assignment please write a note in the assignment book and his/her classroom teacher will make sure they get another copy.
