If you are new to KME, we understand how

overwhelming it can be to learn the way that the school operates.

 We have put together some important information about the PTO,

how to contribute to KME, school events, and fundraiser information.  

The Mission of the PTO 

We are a non-profit, all-volunteer group committed to enriching our children’s educational experiences at KME and building a vibrant community within our school. We help parents and caregivers stay connected, understand our community’s needs, and foster community spirit; all of which is intended to maximize the experience of our students.  Every parent and guardian of a student enrolled at KME is a member of the PTO.

By supporting the PTO, you are supporting KME! You help contribute to fun school events and enrichment programs that not only raise funds, but more importantly engage the students, build moral, and school spirit.

How the PTO operates

The KME PTO is structured as a non-profit, which means that whatever money is raised within a given school year should be used before the school year ends. All students should also be able to benefit from how the funds are spent. In the past, the PTO has not only sponsored fun events like the school dance and extravaganza, but they have also paid for educational resources for teachers/staff, turf to make the playground safer, an outdoor classroom, and many other projects that help make KME the best place to be.

Veteran’s Day Parade  

KME loves our veterans and active service members! During our celebration in November, students, teachers, and parents line the hallways to show our appreciation for their service to our country!  Veterans and family members are invited to school for a coffee and donut breakfast.  Once the children have arrived, the students who have invited family members to participate join them to walk in the parade.  Then we usually enjoy a short presentation and music from the students.

This is an evening event where KME families share their cultural heritage. Students and their families are able to share and learn about different foods, dress, currency, traditions and more from around the world.

Programs organized/sponsored by the PTO

After-School Programs

We offer various after-school enrichment programs for our KME boys and girls throughout the year focusing on areas such as the Arts (drama, art, dance, music), Culture (language), Sports & Fitness (athletic training, martial arts, soccer, yoga), and STEM (science, technology, engineering, math). All classes are held at the school, directly following dismissal for the day, with an occasional evening class. Class schedules and fees are determined by each Program Provider. Parents are responsible for registering their child with the Program Provider and for covering all class fees.

In-School Enrichment Programs

We offer many in-school programs for KME students throughout the year.  Our VP of Programs works closely with the principal and teachers to make sure all programs are tied in with the curriculum.
