Staff, make sure to check your 2018-19 Closing Procedures Packet for a list of all the activities through this last week and a half of school. Click here for access to a digital version of the packet.
One event that did not make its way into our closing procedures packet was PTO's Memory Book distribution, which will occur this Thursday, May 23rd during first period. Students who did not pre-order a memory book can purchase one at lunch on Thursday on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Parents, don't forget that your child's participation in the Fun Day celebration on Wednesday, 5/29 is dependent on both behavior and having cleared all fines and fees. Teachers and sponsors are reminding students of outstanding fees throughout this week.
Also, please make sure you send your Bearcub next Tuesday, 5/28 (after Memorial Day weekend) with their Chromebook, charger and case for Chromebook pickup day. The bell schedule will be slightly different on pickup day to allow all students to turn in their Chromebooks through first period:
Final Exam Schedule:
Friday, May 17: TSDE (part 1), Prin. Info Tech (part 1), PHS (part 1)
Monday, May 20: TSDE (part 2), Prin. Info Tech (part 2), PHS (part 2)
Tuesday, May 21: Prof-Comm., DDMP (part 1), Gateway to Technology (part 1), Health (part 1)
Wednesday, May 22: DDMP (part 2), Gateway to Technology (part 2), Health (part 2)
Thursday, May 23: Spanish I & II (part 1), Algebra/Geometry (part 1), Art 1
Friday, May 24: Spanish I & II (part 2), Algebra/Geometry (part 2), PATH
Finally, parents, don't forget that the last day of school is an early release day! Dismissal will begin at 1:25. The abbreviated bell schedule means that lunch on the last day will really be more of a brunch, so plan accordingly. See the bell schedule below for the last day:
Here is what is coming up for Kleb PTO:
We are still taking nominations for next year’s board here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1A9ph9t5_T9WxQ4-s10iRfF0GcCh6l7P4qFmz_TSu5lY/edit (or you can print a form from the PTO website)
If you have a little time or a skill to offer, please consider putting your name in the hat so we can create a strong, well-balanced group that represents our WHOLE school. Don’t forget to pass the interest/nomination form on to anyone who will be coming up from elementary school too. We would also like to have a contact in each of the clubs and organizations here to make sure we are as connected as possible to the needs and activities of our kiddos. Thank you for continuing to support Kleb PTO!
