Reflections Needs You!!
Does your child enjoy photography, dance, film, painting, drawing, musical composition or collage? Then we hope you will participate in this year’s PTA Reflections program! The theme is Heroes Around Me.
Reflections is a national PTA-sponsored program offering students the opportunity to create works of art for fun and recognition. Students in preschool through grade 5 are encouraged to create and submit works of art (on a specified theme) in six categories: dance choreography, film production, literature, musical composition, photography, and the visual arts (which includes art forms such as drawing, painting, print making, and collage). Students may submit as many entries in as many categories as they would like. Entries may be turned in at the Kiker office starting Oct. 22. All entries are due no later than Oct. 30 at 3 p.m. No late entries will be accepted.

Kiker Math Pentathlon Club Registration is OPEN!!!
Do you love board games? Want to help your child build math skills? Math Pentathlon Club is a great way for children to strengthen their critical reasoning abilities and strategic thinking…without even realizing they are learning! Your child will learn and practice five age-appropriate games with their peers, and may participate in a tournament with other Austin-area schools in the spring.
Parent participation is required – Parents help teach the games to the children, practice the games at home, and monitor the children as they play with their fellow students. Math Pentathlon lets YOU get in the game!
We meet at Kiker on Monday evenings, 6:00-7:00 PM, beginning November 12th. Grades K-5th are welcome.
For more information about Math Pentathlon Club and to sign up for the 2018-19 season, go to http://kikerelementary.org/math-pentathlon.
DEADLINE to sign up for Math Pentathlon Club is November 2nd, 2018
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!
