Dismissal Changes

We recognize that with the loss of our west parking lot dismissal congestion has increased. The rain this week has not helped either. We are continuing with the new dismissal times mentioned below and believe it will get a little better as we get used to the new times. Please remember that this is temporary and it will be better when the gym construction is completed. That it is frustrating for everyone and that we are all part of the same KAES family. So lets show each other more compassion and understanding then we feeling like giving.

In hopes to improve the congestion, we will continue to dismiss students in the elementary building at 2:55pm and students in the middle school building at 3:05pm. If you have children in both buildings we ask that you pick up at 3:05pm, the designated dismissal time for the middle school. The same pattern of dismissal will be observed on Fridays with the time being 1:55pm for our elementary building and 2:05pm for our middle school building. Thank you for adjusting your schedule accordingly to help alleviate traffic for the remainder of the school year.

Home & School Classic Car Show - April 5

It is still a little more than a month away but Home and School is planing a really cool event that you will want to mark your calendars for. This year because of a number of challenges with our pine car derby we are unable to run that event. However instead we will have a new event that we have never had before, a classic car show on April 5 in the parking lot at Chisholm Trial Academy. If you are like me and love to look at these classics you won't want to miss it. Come April 5 and enjoy or better yet ask home and school how you can help.

Pine Car Durby - Postponed to Next Year

We will not have a pine car derby this year do to many challenges that have come up. We hope to continue our tradition next year when we have a bigger gym. If you already purchased a car kit from the school you can return it. Thank you for your understanding.

Thank you everyone for this amazing birthday. I will never forget it. You are all amazing.
