Our Mission is to prepare all students to reach their full potential as life-long learners and socially responsible contributors to our global community.



**DIRECT APPEAL**

Every two years, the KHS PTA asks Kings Highway parents to donate to the PTA’s general funds through a Direct Appeal Campaign. We forgo the galas and merchandise fundraisers and simply ask you to make a financial contribution. 100% of all donations are tax deductible and directly support your children, as well as the faculty and staff at KHS!

Because every single child benefits, we’re setting our sights on 100% participation. Every single amount helps.

To donate online, click the DONATE button below. You do not need to have a PayPal account to complete the transaction online; you may also pay by credit card. Please consider adding $2 to cover the credit card processing fee.

BRAND NEW GIFTS THIS YEAR!

Every single donor will receive a KHS window decal as our way of saying thanks, and so you can show your Cheetah pride on your car or at home!

Donors who give $250 or more will receive this heavy canvas KHS cheetah tote bag!!
