Next Week at Key (11/17/16)

NW@K November 17, 2016


This Sunday, November 20, Key Grounds Clean-Up from 9 to 12

Our Mission will Be To Rake the Leaves! There will be an adult prize drawn every hour on the hour for those present – and we only ask an hour of your time! We will have leaf bags and other basic items but a limited amount of tools to share so if you could BYOGT (bring-your-own-garden-tools)! Below is a sample of tools needed:


Gas Blowers


Tarps (to move the leaves to the conclusion curb side)

Kids are welcome to come and help as well as play on the playground, one caveat: there is a church group using Key School on Sunday, we will only be allowed in the building to use the bathrooms and that has to be done VERY quietly. We will have coffee/donuts for all and will have a special raffle for adults. Looking forward to seeing you all there and please RSVP to

Mark Your Calendars for the Annual Tree Sale Coming Dec 3rd & 4th  8am to 5pm

It’s starting to cool off signaling the coming holiday season and Key’s traditional (30-years!!) tree sale.  Picture the fire burning and the whiff of pine in the air while socializing with your friends!  Plan to be there Dec 3rd & 4th in the Key school parking lot to buy your tree, wreaths, kissing ball, greens, bows and stands. Many volunteers will be needed so get your Holiday On and help! It is a great way to meet other Key parents and broaden your circle of Key Contacts!


Sign up here:


Holiday Sign-Up Parties

The Key School Auction Team will be Offering Holiday Sign up Parties!  We have a few holiday sign up parties that will be offered in December including a 1st grade Ginger bread house decorating party, a preschool cookie decorating party, and a 1st grade girls Holiday movie PJ party!

Our Auction website will go live the weekend after Thanksgiving so mark your calendars to claim your spots!  These parties only have 10 spaces each!

    We need more volunteers to host Holiday parties so each grade level can join in on the fun!!  These can be simple play dates, Holiday Caroling, Pinterest craft parties, and Adult get togethers!!

You decide the number of children you can accommodate and price points can start anywhere from $30 each and up! Money raised is going towards the Key School PTA!

Anyone interested please email Jessi Marx at

A reminder that Chess will not meet over the month of December as Coach Olivia needs to study for finals! I believe last class will be December 1 and then to return in January. She will send a note out to participant’s parents to confirm this.
