Dear KES Families,
November is a month for giving at KES! We kicked off our annual KES PTO Food Drive on Monday, October 30th. The KES community will be collecting specific food items for the Northern Westchester Community Center. These donations will help hundreds of our neighbors in need enjoy special holiday meals. Items have been assigned by grade as follows:
Kindergarten: Tea Bags (small boxes) and Hot Chocolate
First Grade: Regular or Decaffeinated Coffee (instant or ground)
Second Grade: Canned Fruit and Vegetables
Third Grade: Butter Cookies or Shortbread Cookies
Fourth Grade: Bags of Flour and Sugar (1-2 lb. bags)
Fifth Grade: Cooking Oil (vegetable, canola, etc. in small bottles)
*All Grades: Cans of Soup, Beef Stew, Chili, Baby Food and Diapers
Please do not include perishable or expired items.
Children may bring the items with them to school to be placed in the boxes outside of their classroom. KES students are also invited to help deliver the food, weigh it and stock the shelves at The Community Center on THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 16TH. If you and your child would like to participate, please email one of the KES PTO Holiday Sharing Chairs:
Also this month, KES is collecting for those who have been affected by the recent hurricanes in support of the John Jay High School American Red Cross Club. Items needed include: bottled water, batteries, baby food, diapers, and non-perishable foods. Monetary donations will be accepted. Checks only made out to JJHS. A collection box for these donations will be located in the KES Main Office until November 30th. If you have questions about the Red Cross collection, please contact Jessica Fulton, KES School Social Worker.
If you are sending in donations with your children, please make sure that they know whether to place the item(s) in the box outside their classroom for KES PTO Food Drive and/or the box in the Main Office to support hurricane survivors. Labeling the items may be a good idea!
Thank you in advance for making this a successful KES community effort!
