7thGrade Parents High School Information Night – This Thursday, May 10 @ 6pm
All 7thgrade parents are invited and strongly encouraged to attend this informational meeting about the high school application process. Now is a great time to begin talking as a family about goals and plans for high school. Don’t let the admissions process become overwhelming. Come and get some basic information to help you start planning for this next step in your child’s education.
This meeting is for parents only; students will get a lot of support for this process in class.
Culture Day is Thursday, May 10
While each class is celebrating this day differently, the whole school is united in celebrating and sharing the foods of various cultures on Thursday. We all agree that the foods of a culture help define and unite its people.
Each class is creating a potluck lunch to share among themselves and others. Please help us celebrate the diversity of cultures that create our world, our nation, and our school by bringing food of your family’s culture or one that you admire.
On Friday, Please Welcome Principal for the Day… Mr. P.
This Friday, Maximilian Piech (Mr. P.) will be greeting you at morning drop off as well as afternoon pick up. He will be having lunch with Mr. L. in his office and he will become the new voice of our phone message.
Please make sure you say hi when you see him!

After School Entrepreneurship Club Final Projects
Many 4thand 5thgraders have been part of an after school entrepreneur club led by Anatoly Bushler (Jacob and Ari’s dad). They spent weeks learning about setting up a successful business and brainstorming ideas to create a Business for a Day.
Last weekend they set up their businesses and worked selling their products. Two teams earned more that $100 and two teams earned more than $200.
Their earnings of almost $700 have been donated to the KPA!!
Congratulations to all for becoming successful business people and wonderful school citizens.
