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!
