KPA Welcome Letter
WELCOME TO THE
2015-2016 SCHOOL YEAR FROM KPA!
KPA’s mission is to build community among parents, students, faculty, and staff through a variety of social events. As the co-chairs, it is exciting to be able to put this mission into action, and with our many volunteers, play a significant role in the building of our Kehillah.
KPA has a lot of fun events planned for the coming year. Here are a few to get us started:
KPA Curbside Coffee – Friday, August 28th, 8:30 AM
Come socialize, sip fresh made espresso or coffee from our artisan coffee cart, munch on yummy snacks, and enjoy.
Other Curbside Coffee dates: September 25th, November 20th
KPA Meeting – Friday, September 4th, 8:30 AM
Want to get involved in KPA? This is a great time to come hear about and discuss our plans for the year. Open to all parents.
