PTA No Fuss Fundraiser Update

posted Oct 7, 2020, 6:23 PM by KMS Hornets

Dear Kealing Families,

Greetings on this Wednesday in our first week of reopening the Kealing campus!  PTA would like to share a few mid-week announcements. 

First, a quick reminder about our ‘No Fuss’ fundraiser.  We are so proud of the many families that have donated to date, but are still over $20,000 from our need.  Luckily, we are in the midst of a ‘Match Challenge’! – a group of anonymous donors have pledged to match the donations raised from now through Friday Oct. 9th, $1 for $1, up to a total match of $7,000.  We depend on these funds for a wide variety of traditional costs (books, training, materials) - plus so many unique challenges during the 2020 COVID pandemic.  Please help us out if you are able – just hit the Easy No-Fuss Button

Second, an announcement on magnet programs and the upcoming School Board elections. On Sunday, October 11th at 4:00-6:00pm, Austin magnet schools will host a virtual forum for magnet parents to learn about the candidates running in the contested School Board districts. Questions will focus on the candidates’ views surrounding magnet education. A strong showing by magnet parents sends a message about the importance of magnet schools in Austin. To RSVP (not required), submit a question in advance, or to watch the YouTube live streamed event go here 15 minutes prior to the event (3:45pm): 

Go Hornets!
