Kolmar Families & Friends,

It is hard to believe that September has come and gone and we are now fully immersed in the sixth week of school. Students and teachers have settled in and are working hard. Thank you to everyone that has stopped in during the day and at Back to School Night to welcome me to Kolmar School. I have enjoyed getting to know your children and look forward to a wonderful school year. Also, it is so nice to walk through the building each day and be greeted by your children with a “good morning”, “good afternoon” or a smile. Students are working hard on greeting staff members in the building. Please ask your child who they greeted warmly today.

October is Fire Safety Month. The Crestwood Fire Department will be here on October 7 to present mini-assemblies to our Kindergarten - 3rd graders. Hopefully, the weather will cooperate and allow for the students to hop on board the fire trucks!

Our Mustang Trot was postponed due to the rainy weather we have been experiencing. Students will participate in the Mustang Trot on Friday, October 4. Please send in donations by October 7, 2019. All donations will go to the school - last year we were able to purchase new recess equipment for grades Kindergarten - 6th. Thank you to the staff that put this event together to support our school!

As always, we owe our Parent Group a big “thank you” for all the hard work they do for us throughout the year. Don’t forget that all parents are members of the Parent Group. Check out the Kolmar Parent Group Facebook Page for information. Also, click here to see events currently scheduled. We invite you to join us for our next meeting on November 6 at 9:30 am.

Happy Fall!
