The Year in Review
We hope your PTA has had a successful year! KAC is here for you; we hope you found value in the services we provide. A couple standouts this year:
a Communication MOU with KSD to help bring equitable access to PTAs across the district to resources for promoting the PTA mission.
a successful transition of leadership with the Clothing Bank. This critical service continues to provide our communities – over 1100 kids accessed the bank this year.
another successful Reflections campaign. Participation increased by 25%, especially at the secondary level, and our outreach partnership with Naked Pizza gives our amazing artists and writers exposure to the larger community. Running Reflections at your school is not as challenging as you might think, and we have great resources!
If you haven’t already, please take a short survey to help us improve the service we provide next year.
KAC general membership meetings are the fourth Monday of each month at 7:00 pm in the Kent School District Administration Building board room at 12033 SE 256th Street. At our meetings, we provide information, networking and training in a variety of formats for officers of Local PTA and PTSAs. Our next general membership meeting will be on August 22nd, 2016. There are no general membership meetings in December, June and July.
We have a Facebook page. Check it out, like it and spread the word!
