PTA NEWS

WELCOME BACK-TO-SCHOOL ZOOM SOCIALS FOR STUDENTS AND PARENTS – VOLUNTEERS DESPERATELY NEEDED 

Come one, come all—mark your calendars! The Kealing PTA would like to host three Back-to-School Zoom Socials:

  • 6th Grade Students & Parents: Friday, August 14, 7-8:30pm
  • 7th Grade Students & Parents: Saturday, August 15, 7-8:30pm 
  • 8th Grade Students & Parents: Sunday, August 16, 7-8:30pm
We need *LOTS* of parent volunteers from each grade to pull this off!

Are you creative and have ideas for breakout rooms that you’d love to share?
Are you available to serve as a *host* in one of our themed student breakout rooms?
No experience needed!

If we don’t get enough volunteers, then we will NOT be able to host these events! Volunteer for your child’s night or a different night (so you can attend your own night).

To volunteer, please email Kelly Mikelson at president@kealingpta.org.


BACK-TO-SCHOOL POP QUIZ (THIS IS EASY!)

  1. Is your kid a student at Kealing Middle School? If yes, join the PTA (must join annually).
  2. Do you want to actively support our community? If yes, volunteer with the PTA.
  3. BONUS: Want Kealing gear? If yes, purchase here.

Beginning this year, we have ONE parent organization. Our PTA is committed to serving ALL Kealing students, meeting the needs of ALL Kealing Parents, and supporting ALL Kealing faculty and staff.

Our FIRST PTA Meeting and Meet the Principal, Academy, and Magnet Directors occurs via Zoom on Thursday, August 20 at 7:30am.

To create a strong community, the PTA needs volunteers!

Check Out Our Kealing Parents Facebook Group

Calling all current Kealing parents — please join our Kealing Parents Facebook Group to ask other parents questions and say hi! Kealing Parents FB is here to facilitate another way to connect with parents. Join the conversation!

Kealing PTA not only advocates for all Kealing students (including yours and mine), they support our teachers and staff, support our communities, support basically everything that has to do with Kealing and public education. The Kealing PTA supports BOTH the magnet and the academy programs. There is no funding for magnet programs in the public school arena so PTA exists to help fund the exceptional education that both our programs provide. PTA also helps with all-things magnet—shadowing, recruiting, etc.

Do #1 and #2 for sure, today. Thank you!


KEALING PTA MEETINGS

Kealing PTA Meetings are open to everyone. We discuss topics relevant to both the Academy and the Magnet programs.
