Dear KES Families,
Welcome back! We hope you enjoyed the spring break! As you may know, April is the month during which we celebrate Earth Day. The theme, “Think Globally, Act Locally” continues to focus our attention on reducing our consumption, waste and use of resources in general. We are asking you to consider the ways in which your family could reduce their consumption and/or waste at home. Please take a moment to consider the possibilities. If you choose to participate, please sign the pledge (see attachment) and have your child return it to their homeroom teacher.
Now that spring has sprung, we look forward to continuing with our initiative, Walk for Wheels! Thus far, we have walked more than 1,000 miles and look forward to completing our commitment to the cause and our generous sponsors who will be funding the bicycles that will be donated to the World Bicycle Relief. We will choose four days in the coming weeks to walk the perimeter of the upper field during recess to accomplish the task before we celebrate International Walk/Ride to School on Friday, May 12th.
We will resume our Walk and Ride to School Fridays this Friday, April 21st! Our students will be greeted by music upon their arrival! Decreasing the number of cars in and around KES in the morning not only reduces harmful emissions but also increases safety for all of our students. We encourage you to walk and/or ride to school any day of the week!
Family Day at Yankee Stadium will be held on Saturday, April 29th when the Yankees play the Baltimore Orioles @ 1:05. The seats are in the first five rows of Section 306 and are discounted at $22.50 each. If you want to join in the fun, please write out a check made payable to the Katonah Lewisboro School District and send in your order to school to the attention of Terry Costin.
As a way of keeping you informed of all the events and activities that will be taking place these last few (hectic) months of school, we have created a comprehensive calendar. For your convenience, the calendar is attached as a pdf document. As you review the calendar, take notice of how many of the events and activities are sponsored by our PTO! To those of you who participate in the PTO by attending events, volunteering and/or chairing a committee, we truly thank you for enriching and enhancing our students’ learning experiences.
Cristy Harris and Terry Costin
