Keppel Weekly Announcements March 10

I hope you all remembered to Spring ahead and change your clocks this weekend.

On Tuesday there is Orchestra as well as Master Class.

Wednesday is Art Day at Keppel. All students will be participating in various art activities and performances. Special thanks to MKS for helping coordinate everyone for this event. Wednesday is a School Spirit Day, so wear your school spirit wear and show your school pride.

Thursday is a banking day, school starts at 9:00 am.

Friday is a College Spirit Day and the final day of school before Spring Break. We will have a Cougar Pride Assembly on Friday. If your child received a Tardy Assignment in their report card envelope, those are due to their teacher by Friday.

Students will be on break from Monday, March 18th through Monday, March 25th. They return to school on Tuesday, March 26th.

Please take 10 minutes and fill the GUSD Parent Culture survey that the district emailed to you. They are highly interested in feedback from each school. What you have to say matters.

A big thank you goes out from MKS to all those who supported our students during the Apex Fun Run turned Remix! After 2 weeks of leadership lessons, classroom visits, and dance moves (as well as cold and rainy weather), Mark Keppel students, families, and friends raised over $76,000 in pledges. Not to mention that 300 families earned enough pledges for Apex to donate clean drinking water through the Thirst Project. Way to go, Keppel!
Between the Family Fund Drive and the Apex fundraiser, our amazing families have brought MKS so close to our fundraising goal of $120,000.
