Message from Mrs. Carey!

Dear KES families,

Hope this finds you well! We have a TON of information to share with you this week including some end-of-the-year dates!! Please make sure you take time to check out the information below and all that I have linked to our newsletter.

I wanted to take a moment to congratulate our "Hero Boys Run" and "Girls on the Run" clubs! Last week they completed a "pre-race" utilizing the Queen Anne's County High School Cross Country course. They have built up stamina, set goals, and learned about running form and health and nutrition. They persevered and ran their hearts out! Thank you to all of the parents and staff that helped with this event and also ran with the students!

Many of you have been inquiring about the last day of school! Our Superintendent has put in a waiver for the last snow day that we have to make up. Once the status is determined, the BOE can let us know the final day of school for students. We promise to let you know once we hear!
