Florence Update

October 16, 2015

Dear Florence Families,

It was a great four day week at Florence. On Thursday, Georgia Altom and I hosted our first Coffee Talk. We had a small but interested and informed group in attendance. We were able to share information about some of the ins and outs of district and campus business and share information about the Florence goals for the year. We hope you can join the next one as we continue the conversation.

Today we also Joined the Fight Against Drugs by "Wearing Camo" to celebrate Red Ribbon Month at Florence! It was fun to see all the creative Camo!!!

Have a great weekend!



Casey's Fun Run

Dear KISD Families:

We are 5 weeks away from the 19th annual Casey's Kids Fun Run. Let me stress the word FUN! This event is for all ages and all fitness levels. Even the 5k (3.1 miles) can be walked. Sign up the whole family and come out and enjoy the day together with friends and family, while contributing to a great cause- the students of KISD!

For a little extra incentive, we will be awarding The Casey's Cup to the school with the most participants. That includes "virtual runners." The winner will be announced at the awards ceremony immediately following the race.

See you there!

Thank you!!!

Thanks to PTA's Tiffany Finkelstein for a great carnival and to and Shana Bishop for a fabulous Silent Auction. They could not have done it without the army of volunteers to help - parents, teachers, and highs school students. Thanks to everyone for helping to make it a success!!
