Welcome to KLES PTA!
Interested in joining the PTA? Please take a moment to learn more about the PTA and how you can be a part of it!
We'd love to have you as a member and don't worry, your level of commitment is up to you. Consider joining today to show your support!
The PTA is doing a Membership Drive to get more families involved with the PTA. We are always hoping to increase our membership so we can have more voices working together to support our kids. Another benefit of becoming a PTA member is you get access to sign up for After School Activities a day before the general school population and the requested donation of $12 (for specific PTA run activities) is waived as a thank you for paying for your membership.
The classroom that has the highest PTA Membership enrollment from the beginning of the school year to Friday, September 30th will have a Pizza Party, hosted by the PTA. These enrollments can be from anyone who wants a voice on the PTA, including any family member (parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc.), students, teachers, or community members. Memberships are $15 for 1 person or $25 for 2 people.
You can sign up online at https://klespta-membership-drive-22-23.cheddarup.com, click on the QR code, or you can fill out a Membership form and send cash or check (made out to KLES PTA) with your student to school.
