It was great to see some of you during conference week! If you missed out on a conference and would still like to chat, please send us an email and we’ll find some time for a phone conference or one on one at school.
I ran across this brochure while researching some information for a parent. Many of you are such amazing advocates for your children. Navigating through choices in education with a gifted child can be daunting.
A new subscription button should be appearing on the home page of our site. It will alert you when additions to the website have been made.
Thank you for all you do for your children!

Welcome Back for another great year at Keheley!
Our tentative date for this year’s open house is Friday, August 11 at 7:30am in room 113, in the first grade hallway. This year we would like to extend the same opportunity of allowing you to donate $15 for supplies instead of giving you a list of extra items to purchase. No need to purchase baggies, paper towels, tissues, pencils, highlighters, etc. This worked well last year and we’ve extended it to include a personal pencil pouch for students to keep their supplies in. They will need a 3 ring binder and can use the same one they’ve used in years past. This usually lasts them through 5th grade. They will need the following dividers with labeled tabs: Tally/HW; Algebraic Thinking; Affective Thinking; Cognitive Thinking; and Extension/Unit; Total of 5 dividers.
Target Days will be announced soon for each grade level. Target classes officially begin the week of August 7th. We will also be welcoming a new Target teacher this year as Mrs. Simpson has taken a position at McCleskey Middle School.
Please don’t hesitate to email me with any questions you may have. I am looking forward to seeing everyone and catching up on July 31!
