Happy New Year!
Speaking of amazing Kruse Community, we love how fast people were to help another parent get out of the snow on Tuesday morning! You all are awesome.
Annual Holiday Giving Program- A Huge Success
Thank you to everyone who was able to donate items, gift cards, time or money to this program. Over 30 families had filled out requests for help and because the Kruse Community is always so generous all requests were met. Close to $3,000 dollars in gift cards were also donated to the families. A big thank you to our Holiday Giving Program coordinator, Natascha Palmer. She spent countless hours organizing, making sure all the needs were met and the program ran smoothly.
Thank you 100% Chiropractic
Thank you for your generosity!
Staff lounge update
A goal of the PTO for a few years has been to update the staff lounge. It hadn't had new furniture or much majorly done since Kruse opened. Thanks to the Fire House Car Wash fundraiser and donations from a few Kruse Families we were able to create a space that is more welcoming and relaxing. We also want to thank Revive Home Interiors for the design guidance.
So far the teachers have really appreciated the space and the room is being used so much more than it has in years! Here are just a few quotes from our teachers:
- "It brought tears to my eyes when I saw it! I can’t wait to spend some time in there! Words do not express our gratitude!" Mrs. Katzman
- "Thank you, thank you to each of you for taking the time to make our work world a lot warmer and enjoyable." Mr. King
- "Thank you so much for the amazing transformation of the teacher break room! We appreciate all the thoughtful planning, time, and effort you put into the new space! I felt so peaceful eating lunch in there yesterday." Mrs. Kirby
- "It’s amazing! It really does feel peaceful and it just looks so nice!" Mr. Anderson
Family Skate Night at Rollerland
There is also a Fun and Game Special for $11. The Fun and Games Special includes unlimited skating, unlimited playground, 2 runs in the laser maze, and 12 arcade tokens, and free skate rental if needed.
Welcome Back Clubs at Kruse
Foreign Language Club, Lego Robotics Club, Art Club, Chess Club, and 5th grade Yearbook club.
We would love to sponsor a Fitness/Wellness Club and Odyssey of the Mind but we are in need of parent volunteers to organize and run them. If you are interested in helping with the fitness club or Odyssey of the Mind or even have another type of club you would like to see at Kruse contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Keep an eye on weekly emails for ways to register for these clubs.
*Due to the ever changing pandemic we will adjust club precautions and meetings to best keep your students and our staff safe and healthy.
