Pink Shows Support
At least one third of our students wore pink today (Friday) to support and raise awareness for those who have struggled or are struggling with breast cancer. During lunch, students wrote the names of people impacted by breast cancer on sticky notes and we posted this photo on Facebook.
To help your child understand the purpose of a day like this and build empathy, an idea to consider is writing and giving a card of encouragement or other token to show that this person is in your thoughts..
Picture Retakes During Lunch Monday
All students need to have their picture taken for identification and yearbook.
To order pictures, you can complete the Life Touch order form that is located in the kiosk outside of the main office. Have your child bring this packet and payment. Or we recommend that you order online at:
Enter Picture Day ID: LS219063Q1
Then, print the confirmation of payment and bring that to school for retakes.
Let’s Have a SOCK-cessful Warmth Drive
Beginning this week, we are collecting socks, hats, gloves and disposable hand warmers to warms the hands, feet and hearts of those who are homeless. Please donate to the collection bin at the front door.
Mix It Up, Oct. 22
Mix It Up at Lunch Day is an international campaign that encourages students to identify, question and cross boundaries. Studies show that students consistently identify the cafeteria as a place in their school where divisions are clearly – and sometimes harshly – drawn. So, we ask students to move out of their comfort zones and connect with someone new over lunch. It’s a simple act with profound implications. Studies have shown that interactions across group lines can help reduce prejudice. When students interact with those who are different from them, biases and misperceptions can fall away.
Be a great role model and meet new people today, too. Be sure sure to share your experiences with your child and ask them to share about their Mix It Up Day.

Coyote Corner, our student store, opened October 1st to the students delight. Volunteers are needed to maintain operations. Sign-ups are open at https://m.signupgenius.com/#!/showSignUp/20f0a48aaab2ea0fc1-coyote. Reminder, you have to be a KPTSA member to handle money. For those who have not worked Coyote Corner previously, you must attend a quick training prior to volunteering.
Thanks for all your help. Together, we are making great things happen!
