Wildcat Prowl Schedule on Thursday, May 18th:

The Wildcat Prowl is also a school-wide fundraiser event where proceeds go back to the KES PTO for field trips and other student activities.  Students who participate will have an opportunity to earn a prize for their efforts.

How the Fundraiser Works:

  • The fundraiser will run from April 24th – May 12th.
  • Students are invited to solicit flat rate donations from parents, friends, family, and neighbors prior to the Wildcat Prowl on May 18th.
  • For every $10-dollars in donations raised by a student, his or her name will be placed on a raffle ticket and entered into a drawing for a prize.  Drawing for prizes will be held on May 19th during school.
  • All donations must be returned in the envelope provided with this letter, to the school by Friday, May 12th.
