Secret Pals - Thank you!
Thank you everyone who supported the Secret Pals Program!  Gifts to the teachers were delivered Thursday, October 9th and Friday, October 10th.  Stay tuned for the next date in December!

SECRET PALS SIGN-UP! *DATE CHANGE!*
This a great way to secretly spread a little joy to our wonderful teachers. Families choose a teacher and then secretly spoil them four times a year: October, December, February and April. Shhhh...PALS are kept a secret! We have compiled a spreadsheet with the teachers secret wishes that you can use to plan your surprise. We will be showering them on October 9 and 10 *date change!*, so please sign up here for your Pal soon!

REFLECTIONS - "LOOK WITHIN" | DEADLINE OCTOBER 31

https://www.txpta.org/reflections-participation
Reflections has been a staple arts program in many schools for 50 years. Through the efforts of our Local PTAs, millions of students have found a creative outlet in the areas of dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography, and visual arts.

With positive recognition as the focus of this program, rather than competition, students of all ages and abilities can experience the benefits of creative expression and help in finding their own voice in telling their unique story.

This year’s theme is “Look Within” and the deadline is October 31st.

Entry Forms and Rules
Students should download the Program Rules to ensure their art meets the requirements for each art category. Each entry must be accompanied by a completed Student Entry form.


MESSAGE FROM PTA PRESIDENT

WARNING PHISHING SCAM - DO NOT FALL FOR THIS
In the past view months, emails for PTA Board members on various campuses around AISD have been asking parents in a direct email to go out and buy gift cards and then to take the picture of the codes on the back and email them back. KMAG and PTA are never going to ask you for the codes. During the teacher appreciation holiday party in December, we may ask for physical gift cards to donate. We will never describe a big need scenario and then ask you gift card codes! Be on the lookout!

TEXAS PTA MISSION
To make every child's potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children.

PTA is the largest child advocacy organization in the US. Please help us grow our membership to greater than 500,000 Texans. This will help Texas PTA have a voice that will in turn put pressure on the legislators to fix the funding formula that is so negatively affecting Austin ISD schools. To help ensure Texas PTA has a strong advocacy voice, please join the PTA.

Check out our Spirit Store for Kealing Hornet hoodies, t-shirts, stickers and other goodies. Buy online, then have your kiddo come pick up their shirts at lunch up on the stage in the cafeteria on the 1st Thursday and Friday or each month.
