What's Happening on Campus?

Make-Up Picture Day

If your child missed having their picture made OR if you are new to Keller-Harvel, we will have a Make-Up Picture Day on Tuesday, November 17th.

Open House

Please join us on Thursday from 6:00 - 7:00 for the KHES Open House. Join your child in their classroom and in the hallways to see examples of what they are learning in school. This is a special event for your child to "show off" their work. Your child's teacher has done some amazing things already this school year and they have worked hard to showcase the talents of all of their students. We can't wait to see you on Thursday.

Parking is always a challenge when we have such great events like this. If you are close, please consider walking or riding bikes if weather permits.

End of the 2nd Six Weeks

Today, Friday, November 13th, ends the 2nd 6 week grading period. Report cards will be available to see in Home Access Center next Friday morning and those families who indicated in InfoSnap during registration that they wanted paper copies will go home with students on Friday, 11/20 as well.

Apex Fun Run information will come home on November 16th.

All students will be attending a Pep Rally at 1:45 on Monday, November 16th. Please look for your child’s Pledge Kit that they will receive on that day. We will also have emails coming from your teachers. Please feel free to visit to hear about this interactive program that helps schools all over the country raise money, while promoting leadership and fitness in the classroom. This year's character theme is Apex DREAM TEAM! Students will join Johnny Dreamer and the Apex team in an exciting journey to learn what it means to become a Dream Team Leader
