Incoming Kennedy Middle School Families!

Calling all incoming 6th grade Kennedy parents! As you and your student transition to middle school, there are lots of opportunities to be involved with the Kennedy community. The KMS PTO is an organization of parents, teachers and staff working together to enrich and improve our students' middle school experience. The PTO is open to all and you are automatically a member - no dues necessary. Your voice matters in shaping our school's priorities, culture and success! 
The PTO is responsible for raising and administering funds that directly support all our amazing elective programs: Drama, Music, Art and STEAM. Simply put, these programs wouldn't be as robust without PTO funding. We also host community events, teacher and staff appreciation days, and assist with procuring classroom supplies. 
There are open PTO leadership positions for next school year. Consider joining our dedicated team in any of the following roles: PTO Secretary, Teacher and Staff Appreciation committee Student Celebrations committee, Fundraising committee and more!

A medida que usted y su estudiante hacen la transición a la escuela intermedia, existen muchas oportunidades para participar en la comunidad de Kennedy. El PTO de KMS es una organización de padres, maestros y personal que trabajan juntos para enriquecer y mejorar la experiencia de nuestros estudiantes en la escuela intermedia. El PTO está abierto a todos y usted es automáticamente miembro, sin necesidad de pagar cuotas. ¡Su voz es importante para dar forma a las prioridades, la cultura y el éxito de nuestra escuela!

El PTO es responsable de recaudar y administrar fondos que apoyan directamente todos nuestros increíbles programas electivos: Drama, Música, Arte y STEAM. En pocas palabras, estos programas no serían tan sólidos sin los fondos del PTO. También organizamos eventos comunitarios, días de agradecimiento a los maestros y al personal, y ayudamos con la adquisición de útiles escolares.

Hay puestos de liderazgo abiertos en el PTO para el próximo año escolar. Considere unirse a nuestro equipo dedicado en cualquiera de los siguientes roles: Secretario del PTO, Comité de apreciación de maestros y personal, Comité de celebraciones estudiantiles, Comité de recaudación de fondos ¡y más!
