The KAC PTA Clothing Bank will be holding summer work parties during July and August on the following Thursday mornings from 10:00 a.m. to noon: July 17, July 31, August 7 and August 14. More dates will be scheduled in August. We continue to take donations through the summer and high need items include tennis/gym shoes in GOOD conditions and pants in smaller sizes, although all clean, gently used clothing items for youth are greatly appreciated.

The Reflections theme for this year is “The world would be a better place if…..”. More information will be coming in the fall regarding reflections, but students could certainly start thinking about what they want to do for their entries now.
