KP School Fall Fundraiser

KP, as a school runs two fundraisers, one in the fall and one in the spring. Our spring fundraiser supports our KP Cares focus to support families in need in the KP community. Our fall fundraiser supports field trip needs and the upgrading of our auditorium.

Last year KP raised close to $20, 000 and saw a profit of just over $9,000. We applied half of that to support scholarships for field trips/subsidize overall field trip costs and put half in our account to renovate the auditorium. We are hoping that you will support us once again this fall toward these efforts.

Please note there is a correction to the dates in the flyer: While you received packets with all of the product information, we apologize for the incorrect information in the fundraiser flyer. The start date is October 14th and it ends on October 28th. Here is the corrected letter (click here).

To shop online or share with friends/family, please use this link Have your parent/caregiver set up a student ID for you to receive credit. The online school ID is 1032144.

For your safety, we do not encourage selling door-to-door without adult supervision. Thank you for your continued support.

Unity Day 2016, Oct. 19! Wear and Share Orange!

Together against bullying — united for kindness, acceptance and inclusion.

Make it ORANGE and make it end! What are your true colors when it comes to bullying? If you care about safe and supportive schools and communities make your color ORANGE on Unity Day.

Wear Orange: Make a statement!

ORANGE provides a powerful, visually compelling expression of solidarity,” said Paula Goldberg, Executive Director of PACER Center. “When hundreds of individuals in a school or organization wear orange, the vibrant statement becomes a conversation starter, sending the unified message to kids to know that they are not alone.”

6th grade Masquerade Mixer on Friday, October 28

There will be a DJ, dancing, snacks and prizes for awesome costumes. To buy a ticket bring your permission slip and $5.00 to Ms. Caldera before lunch or during lunch. See Ms. Caldera in room 9 for more information.
