PLAN AHEAD FOR CURRICULUM NIGHTS FOR PARENTS
Curriculum Nights are an important opportunity for parents to meet teachers and administrators, see their child’s classroom and school, learn about the curriculum KCSD96 students will experience, and get info about communicating with staff. The date and times for Curriculum Nights vary by school and grade levels. 2018 CURRICULUM NIGHTS


PTO FAIRS
PTO Fairs will be ongoing at schools during Meet-the-Teacher and Locker Set-up Day. Parent Teacher Organizations (PTOs) are KCSD96 parents volunteering their time and talent. PTOs plan school community events that families enjoy and raise funds for “extras,” such as cultural arts programs to enhance curriculum. Please create or update your Membership Toolkit account at each District 96 school at which you have a child attending. Use this convenient account to purchase/donate/make payment–and to volunteer.

Update or create your PTO Membership Toolkit now at each school at which you have a student attending!

STAY TUNED AND ASK QUESTIONS
Our District and school websites and calendars will be updated in the days and weeks ahead. Also, after-school clubs and other back-to-school info and parent opportunities will be added when the info is confirmed.

 

Please plan to check back periodically throughout the month and be sure to read Principal Messages and E-NEWS 96 consistently throughout the school year. If you have questions, please contact the administrative assistant at the school your student attends or the District 96 public information coordinator at [email protected]
