Math Placement Information

Mathematics placement screening will take place for all grade 6 and 7 students on Thursday, February 18th and Friday, February 19th. You will receive correspondences regarding the process from your child's mathematics teacher.

Any questions or concerns about the process should first be addressed with the classroom teacher and then subsequently with the appropriate Department Supervisor.

Fundraiser to Support our KP Families in Need

In an effort to be proactive and to limit the number of times we are asking for donations, we are running a spring fundraiser to establish a fund to support needs as they may develop among our KP Families.



Fundraiser begins February 17th.

These delicious Butter Braid Pastries are a welcome addition to any meal. All funds raised will be used to support KP families in times of need.

March 2nd - All order forms and money need to be turned in.

March 15th - Pick-up from 3-6pm in KP auditorium foyer.

Wanted: Volunteers to help in and out of the classroom. The children, teachers and administration invite you to come to school to volunteer your time, talents and expertise. We understand how hectic life may be, and if you would rather take projects home, please just indicate that on the survey (click the link here).

It Matters: Paul Duquette Memorial

There are two ways you can support this effort:

Basket Item Donations:

We are appealing to anyone who may help out with putting together baskets or items that could be raffled off the night of the paint event in March. We are looking for any and all things. Ideas include "adult beverages", movie, spa themed, sports items, gift cards to places in town, etc. . Feel free to Contact Stacey Grindle or drop off them off to the main office to her attention.

Donate through Go Fund Me:

The "It Matters: Paul Duquette Memorial" Go Fund Me page is now up and running. The link can be found below. Please take the time to visit this page and read the beautiful words written by our fellow staff members and to see the great sketch of the Cairn Memorial Garden by Stacey Grindle.

Feel free to forward the link on to anyone you feel may be interested.

Thank you and be well.
