A Message From Mr. Fitzpatrick
GaGa Pit is Back!
Thanks to the generosity of the Mertz family, Kerby now has a brand new GaGa Pit. The students are so excited to begin playing in there. We have created a video that explains the rules and expectations. For the lunchtime volunteers, we will have copies of the rules for you in the office.
Thank you again, Jamie and Heather!
We are fortunate to live and work in a community where the Public Safety Department likes to partner with schools to help educate our students in keeping themselves safe. Today, two public safety officers from Grosse Pointe Farms and one from Grosse Pointe Shores visited Kerby to talk with all students about fire safety. When your child comes home today, ask them to share some of the things the firemen shared with them.
Restricted Parking Along Beaupre
Yesterday, a Grosse Pointe Farms Public Safety stopped by to talk about parking along Beaupre, more specifically parking in the restricted area marked by a yellow curb.
In between the two sandwich board signs, there is a yellow curb. That area is designated as drop off and pick up only. The expectation is to pull in, drop off, or pick up and then move along. If you leave your vehicle to walk your child to the blacktop, you run the risk of getting a ticket. Unattended vehicles may be ticketed.

Stock the Staff Lounge
Let's stock the workroom to show the staff at Kerby how much we appreciate them! If you can donate one or more of these items, that will be awesome! We asked our amazing Kerby Crew at the beginning of the year a list of things that would brighten their day if they found it waiting for them in the workroom, and from that we have generated THIS list.
Everything can be dropped off in the front office between now and the week of Thanksgiving, and we will get it stocked in the pantry/fridge! You are welcome to include a card or note so they know who it came from, or you can donate anonymously.
Thanks for your support!
