Summer 2014

Summer is quickly coming to an end!

Hope your family has enjoyed a fantastic summer! Our staff has been hard at work preparing for the new year. We are committed to providing 21st century learning opportunities that foster academic excellence and a love for life-long learning. We continue to mold and shape our Global Tech Academy to ensure that your students experience the most innovative programming we can deliver. As part of this technology initiative, we will strive to deliver much of our communication in a digital format. This will be a new experience so please bare with us as we attempt to work out the kinks! Hope you find this new e-newsletter to be informative and easily accessible.

Communication...please spread the word!

Electronic communication is the most efficient and convenient way to distribute information. However, this means that we need parents to keep their contact information updated! You can make sure that you are connected by:


1-Family Access through the district website www.tisd.org to receive messages by phone, text, and email.


2-download SchoolWay (formerly SchoolConnect) app on your smart phone to receive push notifications about important events.


3-Following our KP PTO on Facebook!


Please encourage other KP families to keep current by engaging in these communication opportunities.
