K.E.S. School Year 2015-2016

The next two weeks ahead...

The Day is Almost Here!

Kerens Elementary Parents and Guardians,

In just a few short days, summer will be over. I am so excited and proud to be the new principal of Kerens Elementary School. The staff and I have been busy preparing to have the best year ever for your children. Here are just a few things you need to know in order for us to have a smooth start to the year.

  1. During Bobcat Bash, you will be dismissed from the KHS Gym to proceed to the campuses. You may wish to bring supplies with you to drop off in the classrooms. You will have an opportunity to meet your child's teacher.
  2. If you have not filled out a registration packet, please pick one up this week or at Bobcat Bash. Monday the office will be closed. Please come by on Tuesday through Friday to pick one up.
  3. Before you leave Bobcat Bash or release your child to us at 7:45 a.m. on August 24th, we need a contact phone number and how they are getting home on Monday.
  4. I will send home an additional newsletter on the first day of school.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me or my secretary Vicki McDonald. Kerens Elementary School 903-396-7941.

I am looking forward to meeting each of you and your children!
