PTO HOLIDAY Sharing Drive

December, 2018

Dear KES Students, Staff and Families,

The PTO sponsored Holiday Gift Drive begins! This drive has been happening for nearly 17 years in an effort to help make the holidays a little brighter for families; particularly the children in our KES community whose families may not have the financial resources to celebrate.

Kindergarten: New mittens, warm pajamas and socks (youth sizing) for The Northern Westchester Community Center

First through Fifth grade: New, grade-appropriate, books, games and fun, small “stocking stuffer” type items which will be used to fill a festive red shoe box for the families in our own KES community. We encourage KES families to purchase items appropriate for the grade their child is in. (Ex. If your child is in 1st grade buy items to gift a 1st grade child.)

Please send in all gift donations unwrapped no later than December 12th. If including a gift receipt (much appreciated), please tape it to the gift. Our children will experience the joy of giving as they watch the boxes outside their classroom fill up with gifts!

Wrap Night will be held the evening of December 17th (snow date 12/18) in the KES dining room from 6:30 pm until we are done! As Wrap Night approaches we will let you know more about it! But please save the date NOW!

Please let us know if you have any questions. Thank you, in advance, for your much-appreciated generosity!

 2018 KES PTO Holiday Sharing Committee Chairs,

Note from the HEALTH OFFICE

It is that chilly time of year again!  

Let us quickly review our school rules for recess attire.  As stated in the family handbook, please be sure your child comes to school in clothing that is appropriate for outdoor play. 

 If the temperature including the wind chill is below forty degrees, students should be prepared to play outside wearing the following:

  • Warm coats
  • Long pants

 On snowy days in order to play in the snow (including sledding) students will also need:

  • snow pants
  • Boots
  • Hats
  • Gloves

 Please be aware that if a student is not dressed appropriately, he or she will be unable to attend outdoor activities (including recess).  If the temperature including the wind chill falls below twenty degrees, the students will stay inside for recess.   Dr. Louis A. Corsaro, the school district physician, has also advised us in these matters. 

 Thank you for preparing your child with appropriate outdoor attire
