Mrs. Paul to host a Meet the Teacher Night

I am overjoyed with excitement to be able to introduce you to our newest Keller-Harvel teacher, Mrs. Denise Paul.

Mrs. Paul will be hosting Meet the Teacher night on Monday, February 15th from 6:00 - 7:00 in her classroom. She will be welcoming her new students into their classroom beginning Tuesday, February 16th. The families of Mrs. Paul are welcome to walk their child to their new class on their first day.

Sarah Shipp has been voted as our Teacher of the Year for the 2015-2016 school year!

Mrs. Shipp joined the Keller Harvel family in August 2012. Since then she has stayed very busy helping our students in and out of the gym. She has implemented the KHES Running Club, Cup Stacking Club and Cosmic Bowling. She started selling Diabetic Paper Shoes to help raise money for the Diabetic Walk, and has led our runners at the Casey's Kids Fun Run.

The best teachers teach from the heart and our Mrs. Shipp has a heart of gold! Congratulations again to Mrs. Shipp!

PTA Community Store House Food Drve

You will notice several grocery carts in our front lobby. These carts are to help collect canned foods for the Community Storehouse. From February 8 - February 19 you can help the Community Storehouse restock their shelves to help a family in need. Show your support and place your items in your grade level cart.

Paper Diabetic Shoes Available!

In preparation for this, the P.E. dept is starting a fundraiser selling Paper Diabetic Shoes. The sale will “RUN” through Friday, February 26th. Each shoe requires a $1.00 donation.

This year, the teacher whose class (per grade level) with the most shoes purchased will be allowed the opportunity to put a pie in the face of: Mrs. Eriksen, Mrs. Evans, Mr. Smith, Mrs. Shipp or Nurse Rhonda. Names will be drawn for this event. Also, the student, per grade level, who donates the most money towards buying paper shoes will be given the opportunity to “pie” their choice of the above mentioned names.

We thank you in advance for all of your help and support.
