Have you joined the KGES PTA?
Cost is only $7/adult. Membership forms are available on the school website under the PTA page and on the PTA bulletin board at the entrance to the school.  KGES gets to keep ½ of each membership to use towards KGES services and programs supported by KGES PTA!  THANK YOU!! 
(scroll to bottom of this page for attached form)


KGES PTA is charged with providing a yummy hot breakfast to our wonderful teachers before school once/month during their staff meeting.  Can you help? J  Donations of casseroles, fruit, juice, and more accepted the day before each event.  Also *NEW* this year we are happy to offer the opportunity to one lucky parent to come behind the scenes with us as Coffee Talk Assistant of the Month!  What better way to show your appreciation for the teachers personally before the busy school day takes over?  If you can help in either of these ways, please contact Jennifer Josselyn at:
