KMS Parent Group

Happy New Year to KMS families!

Highlights of our January 11th evening meeting: We want to coordinate a ‘day of service’ for next year’s Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.  Please reach out if you are interested in helping to plan this event.  The October ‘fun night’ was well received and we’re going to reach out to the Keene Paraprofessional group to see if we can have another fun night this spring.  The January school theme is,  “We are Heroes”.  In the spirit of keeping that theme going throughout the rest of the year, the parent group is purchasing wristbands to distribute free to students during lunchtime.


Thanks to the parents that volunteered and/or donated food/beverage for our teacher appreciation snack on January 25th. Our teachers and staff appreciated the snacks and it gave them a boost on the early release and workshop day. We’ll host another ‘snack appreciation’ later this spring.


Please consider making a donation for the end of year Staff Appreciation luncheon at KMS. The parent group hosts the lunch for the 115 KMS staff members who support our children throughout the year. Because we don’t fundraise on a regular basis, we ask parents to make small donations to cover the costs of the event.  Checks can be made payable to the Keene Middle School Parent

Group and dropped off at the school office.


Dressy dance – February 16th – Volunteer needs will be posted via our Facebook page. Students purchase tickets in advance @ KMS.


Next meeting: We will hold our morning meeting on Thursday, February 1st,  8:15 - 9 AM in the conference room.  Hope to see you there. Please join our Facebook group – “Keene Middle School Parent Group”. This is our primary communication tool.
