Reminder on Transportation Notes to Teachers

school-bus

Due to the large number of students at Kenton Elementary School, it is important to include the following information on notes sent to the teachers regarding transportation changes:

  • Student’s full name
  • Teacher’s name
  • Name and address of the place where the student is going to (only if it is NOT their home address)

By providing this information, it will help to eliminate confusion for staff and students at the end of the day.

Thank you for your help!

KES PTO 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 from, such as dropping off needed supplies to the school 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.
