Dear Kingston High School Parents Association members,

Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year!

The KHS PA exists to support parent involvement and communication between school and home.  You will receive occasional emails (several today but generally only one or two a week) with information that we hope you find useful.  You are also invited to come and chat with other parents at the KHS PA meetings.

The first KHS PA meeting is Thursday October 22, 2015 6:30pm at Kingston High School.

Also mark your calendars for HOPE 2015 hosted by the KHS PA on November 14, 2015.  The Helping Others Protect Everyone conference is for parents and students in grades K-12 and will focus on ways to resolve conflicts and improve relationships in our homes and communities.

KHS Construction :  An article on the district website details access to KHS for students, teachers and visitors starting today as well as traffic patterns during construction.

KHS TV Announcements :  If your student is not able to hear the daily announcements in class or if you want to know what is in the announcements, printed copies of the announcements are available in the guidance office.  The announcements are also posted each day on the school webpage under KHS-TV Announcements in the left sidebar.

Last week the KHS students saw an interview with KHS 10th grader Alexina Chasin who participated in the teen Chopped competition on the Food Network.  Here is the KHS-TV video and here is a newspaper article about her participation.  You can also find an article about Alexina on the school district website.  Watch Alexina in the second level of competition tonight!

If you are aware of any information that other parents would find helpful, please contact Jolyn Safron, KHS PA President so the information can be shared with KHS PA members.  Also if you have any questions or things you are wondering about, send a note to Jolyn.

Here’s to a great year for our students at KHS!

Jolyn Safron, KHS PA President
