Welcome Kiker Comets
Spooky Game Night - Virtual Bingo - Thursday, October 29 at 6:30 pm -7:30 pm
Immediately following the PTA General Membership Meeting, Kiker students are invited to dress up in their Halloween costumes, or favorite Halloween clothing (no masks, please) and play Bingo with some all-star Kiker teachers and classmates via Zoom. There will be breakout rooms for the kids to join a game of Bingo. Each breakout room winner will receive a prize. All winners will be entered into a drawing for additional prizes.
Information For Families of 5th Graders
The Directors of Lively and Kealing Magnet programs, along with the Principal of Ann Richards School for Young Women Leaders, have developed a schedule in which they combine their presentations [back-to-back] to provide the most efficient way for 5th grade students and parents/guardians to hear about the unique offerings these programs provide.
The time for our Kiker families is on Wednesday, October 28, from 10:00 am - 10:45 am.
Please visit here for more details.
Dress Up as a Book Character
To share in the uniqueness of this year, we are offering the opportunity to celebrate a love of books on October 30 with an optional dress up day. If your students would like to dress up, they may:
1) dress up as a book character
2) dress up in their costume of choice and create a book cover to match
3) wear PJs (lots of books have PJs!)
4) wear their Kiker spirit shirt
Please remember that we do not wear any items with weapons. Proper face masks for health must be worn; costume masks do not replace health masks. Students should be able to walk, play, and use the restroom independently in their costumes.
No pressure to dress up if that is not your child's idea of fun!
