A note from Mrs. Jolley(New)

Dear Kloefkorn Families,

While we still have eight weeks of school remaining for this year, planning for the 2017-18 school year is in the works! We are still working to finalize staffing for next year, but did want to make you aware of some upcoming personnel changes that will be taking place. We wish the best to the following staff members that will be leaving Kloefkorn:

Laura Deans – 3rd Grade Teacher

Julie Forsman – 2nd Grade Teacher

Sam Samuelson – Resource Teacher

Matt Palmberg – Resource Teacher

We look forward to interviews in the next few weeks to have new hires at Kloefkorn.

Early Entrance to Kindergarten (New)

If your child turns 5 between August 1st and October 15th they are eligible to participate in an assessment conducted by LPS to determine possible early entrance to kindergarten.

If this is something that you are interested in you may stop in the front office to pick up an application starting April 3rd. To register, bring your completed application and original birth certificate to the front office and Christy will get you scheduled for an assessment. All assessments must be scheduled one week prior to the beginning of each round of testing and are completed at Eastridge Elementary. Click here to view available testing dates and learn more.

Calling all Third Grade Parents

Is your student interested in playing a string instrument next year? Come meet Mrs. Holloman, our strings specialist and learn all the details about the fourth grade beginning strings program. Students may choose from violin, viola, cello or bass. The Information Night for Beginning Strings will be Tuesday, April 11th at 7:00 p.m. in the Kloefkorn cafeteria. The meeting will cover when and how to get an instrument, what to expect from the program and how to register your student. Questions will be taken at the end of the meeting. Please bring your student with you to the presentation!

Kloefkorn Kilometer

Would you like to help promote health and wellness in the Kloefkorn community? The PTO is looking for some caring adults to organize the Kloefkorn Kilometer. We have a great template for you to follow or bring some fresh ideas to our fun Saturday morning health fair. Please contact board@kloefkornpto.org if you are interested.

Plant Sale

The Kloefkorn PTO had great success last year with Janet’s Jungle Plant Sales and have decided to partner with them again for this year’s big fundraiser! Janet’s Jungle sells high quality plants at great prices.  Plants and distributors are personally selected by Janet and her team, and all plants are locally grown right here in the Midwest.  You’ll be getting premium plants and supporting our school!
