Kiker Art Fundraiser Begins!

The Kiker Art Department is excited to announce that the art fundraiser will be digital again this year! There are many beautiful items available for holiday gifts. Please look for your child’s custom Kiker Art Fundraiser order form to be sent home on Friday, November 9. This essential brochure has your child’s artwork featured on it, their private student ordering code and pertinent instructions for ordering.
Ms. Swint will hold on to all the original artwork until after the Thanksgiving Break because the student codes needed for ordering are on the back of the original work as well. The sale, benefiting the Kiker Art Department, will begin Friday, November 9 and end Friday, November 16. Orders placed during the 9-16 dates will arrive before the winter break. Orders placed after the 16 may not make it back before for the holidays, but they will ship out at a later date. Please celebrate your child’s creativity. They are great young artists that put a lot of hard work into their art. Enjoy!
Please contact Ms. Swint at [email protected] with questions regarding the art fundraiser.

Food and drink items can be dropped off at the front desk the morning of the luncheon during student drop off time. Paper goods and gift cards can be brought into the front office earlier in the week.

Please refrigerate beverages/cold items ahead of time as we will have limited refrigerator access. We ask that you send all food items in disposable dishes.

Calling all holiday bakers!!

Pull out your favorite cookie recipe and donate the goodies to Sweets for our Staff!
The Kiker PTA would like to honor our staff by presenting them with boxes of homemade treats for the holidays. We hope to send all staff members home with a box of a few dozen different sweets. We are asking for volunteers to make their favorite treats and donate at least 3-4 dozen to the Kiker staff. All treats need to be in the Office by 8:00 on Friday, December 14. We also need volunteers to help us package the treats on Friday, December 14.

AISD Updated Safety System at Kiker

Always be prepared to show identification when visiting Kiker! As you are all planning visits to Kiker for any reason (with the exception of morning drop off) please always be prepared show identification.  If you have been here before, we will  ask you to provide your drivers license for us to scan and update in our system.  If you have friends or family that will be coming with you, please make sure they bring identification as well.

If you need to pick your child up early, we will ask for identification. In addition, try to be here by 2:30.  This will allow plenty of time for the buddies that escort them to the office to get back to class safely prior to dismissal.  Please note that this system has been updated district wide. We thank you for your help and understanding while we work out all of the details!

The Kiker PTA wants you!!

Are you interested in volunteering with the Kiker PTA? We have Board, Committee, and other positions available for the 2018-2019 school year? We love our many volunteers! Contact:  [email protected]
