Tustumena Elementary Newsletter

November 5, 2019

Dear Tustumena Families,

Today is the last day for the Book Fair. If you haven't checked it out yet, you can do so during public library hours until 6pm today.

Cash Raffle Tickets still available in the School Office. Also, if your child has any Cash Raffle packets still checked out, please return them to the office. Thank you for helping make this a successful fundraiser!

As the holidays approach, classes may be doing holiday parties. Please remember that if you want to attend or help out with class events, birthdays, parties, etc, you must be an approved volunteer. If you have not done the application yet this year, please go to www.kpbsd.k12.ak.us and click on Volunteers. This may take a few weeks after completion to be approved, so be sure to apply well before you want to visit a classroom.

The Kenai Peninsula Borough School District requests input from staff, parents, and community members at the districtwide KPBSD budget development meeting, scheduled at various locations throughout the district on Tuesday, November 12th at 6:00 PM. Please check here for specific locations.

As new budget information becomes available, it will be posted here: Finance. If you have questions, please call Natalie Bates at 714-8888.
