QUOTE OF THE WEEK…
“Do the best you can, with what you can, while you can, and success is inevitable.” ― Steve Maraboli
Greetings KHS Families. We hope everyone had a relaxing “reboot” weekend after the first official week of Homeschooling. We don’t have any new updates but we want to let you know that we miss you and we are thinking of you! We’d like to thank our teachers and staff for their hard work in rolling out distance learning for our students. And thank you to the parents for your flexibility, patience, perseverance and feedback. Good luck this week! If you find yourself at a breaking point, remember what Lou said Friday…. Prioritize Reading, Writing, and Math.

SPED Families Message...
Please try to reach out to your child’s teachers and let them know how things are going. They are ready and willing to help and would love to stay connected with each of you.
Lonely and isolated senior citizens in our area need your help!
- Nursing homes and Assisted Living communities are now limiting — and in some cases prohibiting — visitors to prevent the spread of Covid-19. This has left thousands of senior citizens isolated at a time when they are most in need of emotional support. Let’s send them notes to brighten their day!
- Local husband + wife, Susan and Paul Doyle, of Oasis Senior Advisors are asking for people to write notes to senior citizens, and they will coordinate delivery to many facilities throughout Fairfield and Westchester Counties. This is a wonderful activity to do with your kids, and will make the day (or week!) of someone who is old and alone.
- Wash hands immediately before writing note.
- Do NOT seal/lick envelope
- Write on front of envelope: FOR SOMEONE SPECIAL
- Return address on envelope so seniors can write back.
- Sign-off for child: First name and age
- Sign-off for adult: Name and hometown
- Home-made cards are welcome!
- Messages can/will be addressed to no one specific; notes can generally say things like “Hope this note brightens your day!” “You are being thought of today!” Any drawings, art can be included!
- Please drop off your note in a box placed at the KHS front door by this Wednesday, March 25. Susan and Paul will pick up the box at the end of day on Wednesday.
Stay safe, healthy, and AT HOME!
Your KHS PTA Co-Presidents,
Kim Ceman & Rosie Curtis
