Sign Up Now to Help with Conference Week Meals!

Each year during Conference Week, the PTA hosts five days of meals for our teachers and staff.  We want to say thank you for the extra long hours they pour into our school for this week! 

While the PTA has secured catered food for three of the five days, we need your help!  We need donations of canned drinks, fruit, and food -- crockpots of soup for Soup & Salad Day, and treats for Dessert Day.  Plus, we need volunteers to help with set up & clean up each day.

There is also an option to send a monetary donation and the PTA will use it to buy what's missing.  Send cash or check (to KSE PTA) through your child's folder, or send paypal to kingspringspta@gmail.com -- be sure to include a note that your contribution is for Conference Week.

THANK YOU!

FAQs about our NEW Gift Funds

This year the PTA will be coordinating Gift Funds to provide gifts to all of KSE's teachers and staff for the holidays and the end of the year. Please read through the questions below to learn more about this fund!

1.  Is there a link to contribute?

 

The link will go live in early November and remain live for 3 weeks. We will set up a link for the end of year fund in the spring.

 

2. What's the change?

 

This year, instead of room parents collecting money for holiday and end of year gifts for their home room teachers, the PTA will facilitate a school-wide gift fund. The school-wide gift fund will benefit ALL of KSE's teachers and staff. With this change, we will be able to recognize all of the wonderful people who work at our school.  

 

In November, families will be able to contribute to the holiday gift fund. In the Spring, families will be able to contribute to the end of year gift fund.

 

The school-wide gift fund will replace the room parent collections for their teacher's holiday and end of year gift. They will also replace the gift fund PTA has hosted in previous years (which gave a gift to non-homeroom teachers & staff).  

 

3. Will there be different funds and links for Holidays and end of year/teacher appreciation or all in one fund? 

 

There will be two different funds -- one in November, for the holiday season, and one in the Spring, for the end of the year.

 

4. Is there a donation goal per event? If so, what is the goal for each event? 

 

Each family is encouraged to donate what feels right for the occasion. This replaces last year’s separate staff gift fund and teacher collections by room parents, so families might consider combining those amounts together.

 

The amount of the gifts will be determined by the amount of funds collected.  We will take the amount collected and divide by it the number of full time and part time staff. For example, full time employees may receive $30 while part time employees receive $15.

 

5. Is it possible to have a goal and show an up to date amount donated, periodically, so all know how far to go. This would be similar to the Foundation does with Support the Pride. 

 

We will do our best to update on the funds collected and will definitely let everyone know the final gift amounts once they are calculated.

 

6. Is there a committee chair or someone to direct future questions? 

 

At this time, the school-wide gift fund is being handled by the PTA Executive Board.  If you have questions or concerns, email manning.erica@gmail.com or kseptacommunications@gmail.com, or contact any executive board member.

 

7. Will room parents still do class gifts? 

 

This school-wide gift fund is meant to replace most money collections by room parents.  So, please do not ask families to also contribute for a class gift except for the teacher’s birthday or other special occasion (wedding or baby shower, etc.). Doing so goes against what we are trying to achieve with the gift fund. We want to recognize everyone at KSE that contributes to our children's education and experience. We also want to make things simpler on our families.
