TWO programs, ONE school, 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.

By noon on September 21st, over 130 families had donated more than $19,300. What an amazing testament to Kealing's school spirit and all the parents involved.

Over the next 3.5 weeks, as we march towards our goal of $55,000, we will also be sharing stories, insights, and particulars that highlight Kealing's school spirit and its wonderful school community - watch for them in School Messenger and the Hornet Herald.

Donating is quick, easy, and can be done at any time you choose. 'No Fuss' means you should not be troubled by this. Donate what you can, when you can. 'No Fuss' also means that funds will be collected without the added trouble of students selling wrapping paper, candy, or other items. We hope that you can help support this effort, where 100% of your donation goes directly to support Kealing's students, staff, and school community.


Thank you to all those that have already donated! let's keep it going!

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!
