Hello Colt families!

I want to make a shout out to all our volunteers, from the bottom of my heart THANK YOU! Without you, many of the awesome happenings at Northampton would be hard (if not impossible) to pull off. March is busy, busy so if you are a registered KISD volunteer we need you! We have many different volunteer opportunities coming up so if you are not registered I encourage you to do so. There is nothing like seeing your child’s face light up when they notice someone they love is at the school. If you have any questions about volunteering please email .

Important Dates/Volunteer Opportunities for March :

4th – 8th – Spring Book Fair

7th – Willies Ice House Spirit Night

8th -Field Day, all day and all grades

11th -15th – Spring Break

18th – 22nd – Art Appreciation Week

22nd – Horseshoe Helpers

As you may have noticed our school is looking a little more spiffy lately. Thanks to all of you we have been able to bring a some color into our school! This is so exciting for the staff and students. The murals are almost complete and are looking great! If you haven’t had a chance to check them out I encourage you to take a moment stop by for a look. If you have any questions on where PFO uses you donations take a look at this high level list of items we have been able to provide so far this year.

  • New lower level (K-2) readers
  • Fulfilled 12 different teacher grants directly related to classroom activities – which included flexible seating, Osomo kits, learning games and fun creative supplies.
  • Have the Oscar-Alley Theater group come perform
  • Provide new safety equipment for our safety patrol student
  • Sponsored author Jennifer Torres
  • Created front office, cafeteria and library murals
  • Breakfast for Dad’s and Doughnuts
  • Supplies for Valentine’s Day
  • And many other activities.

When we say we are thankful for your donations, WE ARE! Look at that amazing list! Our Spring fundraiser will be in May so look for more information at a later date. We are kicking up the idea of bringing back the Spring Carnival for the 2019-2020 school year. However, this cannot be done without more volunteers. If you are interested in being part of a carnival committee please email me and I will make sure you are in the loop. This is a large task with LOTS of preplanning and cannot be pulled off without more volunteers.

Thank you again for your continued support on making Northampton great!
