Hello Kramer families!

I hope you are having a fun and relaxing summer! Here is an update about a few activities going on while we’re all on vacation. Mark them down on your calendar, and join us!

SCHOOL SUPPLY PACKS are still available! 
It’s the LAST WEEK to order your school supplies online. Go to and use our School ID: KRA002. If you want to purchase your supplies directly, you can view a supply list here or pick one up at Kramer in the main hallway.

Summer Work Days: Saturday, June 24th at 9am and Saturday, August 12th at 8am
While the kids and teachers are resting, let’s get together and spruce up our school! Join us for a parent work day to organize, clean, paint, and fix up various areas in and around Kramer. If you can join us for one or both days, let us know on our Facebook page, or via email. Please, bring your paint brushes, if you have any!

Suggestions or questions can be directed at Lauren Bushart at 214-808-0434 or

Speaking of sprucing up… The blacktop project has begun!

4th of July Parade! Tuesday, July 4, 2017 at 9:30am
Don’t miss our annual parade around Kramer! Breakfast, face painting, decorating contest, and much more fun begins at 9:30am. Decorate your bikes, wagons, dogs, strollers, and yourself in Red, White, and Blue! Join the parade around Kramer at 10:00am or grab a seat and enjoy!

Online student enrollment for the 2017-18 school year is now available! This summer (June 12 to August 27) you must go to to enroll your students this fall. You will need your SNAP CODE (found on your child’s report card). The earlier you enroll the better! This will ensure proper placement in your new class for Meet the Teacher night!

Go Kramer Colts teams! If your child wants to play on our Kramer Colts sports teams, you must contact the Kramer Athletics chair at by Friday August 11, 2017. Fall sports include Soccer (PK – 5th, boys and girls), Flag football (boys in PK-5th), and Volleyball (girls in 3rd-5th). Also, we NEED COACHES! No experience necessary; we will provide the information and equipment needed. If you are interested, let us know!

Finally, put these important dates on your calendar now:

  • Meet the Teachers will be on Thursday, August 24th at 5:00pm for incoming Pre-K, Kinder, & 1st graders, and 6:00pm for students entering 2nd to 5th grades.
  • First Day of School is Monday, August 28th! Drop off begins at 7:25am (you will be tardy at 7:46!). After-school pick up is at 2:55pm.
  • Colt Parent Orientation will be on Thursday, August 31st. This is a parents-only event. Parents, come and see what Kramer Country is all about!  PK/Kinder 5:00pm, 1st/2nd grades at 5:45pm, and 3rd, 4th, 5th grades at 6:30pm.

This is a lot of information, so don’t hesitate to ask any questions. There will be additional emails, mailers, and social media posts throughout the summer, so keep an eye out for them. I hope I get to see you sometime this summer at our PTA events!
