KMS Spring Book Fair

Attention Parent Volunteers:

The Spring KMS Book Fair will run from Tuesday, March 31 - Friday, April 3. Students get to visit the Book Fair at least once during their Reading classes. The sale is a wonderful opportunity to bring a diverse selection of popular books to our children and get them excited about reading, but we need LOTS of volunteers to make it happen twice a year. We need 2 volunteers per shift to check students out, restock books, and help students with book selection. Please consider giving just a little bit of your time to staff one or more of the shifts. Even if you can only give an hour of your time it would be appreciated. You can sign up to help by clicking on the link below.

Sports Drinks & Energy Drinks

With busy student athletes, families will often grab food and beverages in transit to games or practices. Knowing whether sports drinks and energy drinks are appropriate for children can be confusing due to tricky marketing and media hype. Please click on this link to read about the differences between these highly marketed beverages, and how to make water an everyday drink when your family is on the go or at home.
