The PTO has sponsored The Holiday Gift Drive for nearly 17 years in an effort to help make the holidays a little brighter for families, particularly the children in our KES community whose families may not have the financial resources to celebrate.
Kindergarten: New mittens, warm pajamas and socks (youth sizing) for The Northern Westchester Community Center
First through Fifth grade: New, grade-appropriate, books, games and fun, small “stocking stuffer” type items which will be used to fill a festive red shoe box for the families in our own KES community. We encourage KES families to purchase items appropriate for the grade their child is in. (Ex. If your child is in 1st grade buy items to gift a 1st grade child.)
Please join the KES PTO Executive Board on Wednesday, November 14th at 7PM as we host our evening General Membership Meeting in the KES Gym. Following the General Meeting, there will be a presentation from the KES Compact Committee on Social Media Awareness, Digital Footprints & Digital Citizenship. See the compact committee update below for more details.
Monday, October 29th until Thursday, November 15th, the KES community will be collecting specific food items for the Northern Westchester Community Center.These donations will help hundreds of our neighbors in need enjoy special holiday meals. We have assigned items by grade and ask that you please leave food donations in the boxes outside your child’s classroom.
“International Walk/Ride to School” celebration. Mark your calendar and get out those sneakers because Mr. Stambaugh planned a festive morning for all of us to enjoy! There are three designated locations/times for students and families to congregate as starting points for walking together to school.
Katonah Village Library @8:40 AM (with Mr. Stambaugh)
Cherry/Lakeside @ 8:55 AM (with Mrs. Harris)

We thank the Bedford Police in advance for increasing their presence at crosswalks to ensure our safety. Should the weather prevent us from celebrating on October 4 we are reserving October 10 as our back up date.
