Thanks of Behalf of the Kealing Staff
The PTA sponsored Staff Holiday party was a success. Thanks to all parents who supported this event. It was a winter treat and a great way for our staff to relax at one of the busiest times of the year!
Spelling Bee ResultsCongratulations to 6th grader Pranathi J. for winning the Kealing Spelling Bee on Wednesday, December 7th. She and runners-up Nisha V. and Peyton D. were so well-prepared that it took 2 hours and 26 rounds in order to finally decide our winner. Ms. Strickland wants to thank all the students who participated in the bee, and give extra thanks to Ms. Tasneem, Mr. Slapak, Ms. Neill, and Mr. Aparicio for their help that afternoon. Wish Pranathi good luck as she prepares for the next round of competition in February.

The Facility Condition Assessment and the Educational Suitability Report are now available. These reports give an overview of Kealing's current campus conditions and will help inform the district's long-range facility planning as we work to envision the future of Austin ISD.
The minutes from the Facilities and Bond Planning Advisory Committee (FABPAC) Meeting meetings can be found here. They include the recommendations presented by the consultants. AISD is working diligently to make informed recommendations that will inform the next 20+ of improvement in the district. Stay tuned for more info!
AISD Middle and High School Application Programs
Austin ISD has created a new system to make the process easier when applying to Academy and Magnet Programs district-wide. This system takes away the burden of submitting test scores, grades, etc. as we are able to access this info directly through district systems. If you have a student who is applying to one of these programs for the 2017-2018 school year, be sure to follow the instructions below.
Yearbook AdsEighth graders grow up pretty fast. If you don't stop and buy a yearbook ad, you might miss out. Only a limited time remains to commemorate your child's middle school experience with a personal message in the 2017 Kealing yearbook. Purchase yours online today at www.jostens.com/yearbookads. Prices start at $35. Don't miss out. Sale ends December 15th.
Shadowing Volunteer Needed
The KMAG Shadow Committee is looking for a volunteer to set up Sign Up Genius for our parent volunteers' shifts. This should be set up by mid-December. We will have all of the dates/shift times for you. This is an easy task one can do from home. This person, ideally, will monitor it as well during the shadowing period in late January and February in case volunteers are having issues signing up for shifts. Please let us know if this interests you (Rob_Molly_Kohler@sbcglobal.net)
