Back to School

Good Evening, Kramer Families!

In one week from tonight we will have uniforms laid out, school supplies ready to go, back-to-school hair cuts complete, earlier bedtimes, and lots of excitement and maybe a few jitters! I can't believe it's almost school time again!

First of all, a huge THANK YOU to all the volunteers and supporters who came out to Kramer's Work Day last weekend! SOOO much work was completed and the exterior of Kramer looks great! From the HUGE mound of mulch that was spread all over the playground in the flower beds, to the trimmed tree branches, power-washed sidewalks, spray-painted posts, and SO.MUCH.MORE, you all made a huge difference!! Thank you! If you couldn't make it, don't worry...there are a few remaining projects on the list and another work day to be planned soon :)

Secondly, below are a few updates/reminders about the next coming days and weeks. Please put these dates on your calendars, share the information to anyone who may not get this, and don't hesitate to reach out with questions.

For the first two days of school (Monday and Tuesday):

--PreK 3 and PreK 4 will walk directly to their classroom on Monday and Tuesday. Their parents may accompany them; however, they need to leave by 8:00 am

--Kinder through 2nd grade students: Parents may accompany their student to be seated in the auditorium until 7:45 and then travel to the classroom for drop-off; however, they ask that parents say, "have a great day!" at the classroom door.

--No eating lunch with students for three weeks. You may begin eating lunch with your students during the fourth week of school.
