Dear KRS Families,

Happy Mother's Day to all the KRS community mothers!

Thank you to the KRS families for making teacher appreciation week very special! Your thoughtfulness, gifts, and treats were extraordinary!

Great thanks to the wonderful parents who volunteered last weekend to spread mulch and plant flowers to beautify the school grounds. Thank you so much!

Congratulations to the KRS band, orchestra, and chorus students for playing in two fabulous concerts! We are so proud of you! Thank you to directors Mr. Rossi (band), Mrs. Quinlan (orchestra), and Mrs. McEachern (chorus) for directing the concerts. Thank you to pianist Mr. Sellwood for accompanying the chorus and orchestra.

Our fourth graders are very talented! Tonight is the fourth grade talent show at 5:30 PM in the KRS multi-purpose room. All are welcome to attend!

Have a wonderful weekend!


Dr. Kathy Koop
