Hello and welcome to the latest Next Week at Key! We hope you had a wonderful spring break and are ready to get back to school tomorrow.
Open House for Prospective Parents Friday, April 26
On Friday, April 26, Key School will open its doors at 9 am to prospective parents who are interested in learning more about our award-winning school. This will be the last Open House of the school year. It provides a great opportunity for people to tour the building, observe classes, and meet Key School staff and parents. Help us spread the word! We are also looking for parent volunteers to lead tours that morning (fact sheets are provided for guides). If available, please sign up here or email Tracy.
General PTO Meeting Tuesday, April 30
Please mark your calendars for our next general PTO meeting on Tuesday, April 30, at 6:30 pm. We will be presenting the draft budget for next year among other things. Sign up for childcare here (https://forms.gle/S4x8h3XuuMN51wnC9). An agenda will be available soon.
