Online Registration is still available for the 2016-2017 school year. Currently, about 60% of Kealing Middle School students have registered online.  Let's see how high this percentage can go before the first day of school.

Ms. Rivera, the Kealing Registrar, will be organizing First Day Packets on Monday, August 15, 2016 from 8:00 am - 11:00 am. We are looking for parent volunteers to help stuff envelopes. Click here to sign up if you are available to pitch in, even if only for part of the time.

School supply lists are available by grade level and program. These lists reflect the majority of the supplies needed for English, Math, Science, and Social Studies core classes. Students will receive elective supply lists during the first week of school along with requests for any additional supplies they may need.

If you are ready to part with a refrigerator that is in good working condition, we would love to have it in our new faculty work room.  Please email to arrange for delivery or pick up.

New students are encouraged to attend transition camp.  Transition camps are designed to help new students learn about the school, meet new teachers and classmates, and learn their way around the campus. Transportation will be provided for Academy Camp and Magnet 6th Grade Camp. Check here for updates as the bus schedule will be included once it is finalized. No registration is required. We look forward to seeing all of our new Hornets in August!
