Student Council Canned Food and Coat Drive
Student Council will be hosting the food and coat drive from now until December 8. We are happy to announce that the 2017-2018 Student Council has kicked off with great success. However, our goal for collecting food and coats is much higher than last. Also, if you have a gently used (clean) coat, please consider donating to our drive. Coats can be placed in the large wooden bin in front of the main office. The Kiker Student Council sends a warm THANK YOU in advance!!!!
4th Annual Market Day
Second grade will have our 4th annual Market Day in the Kiker Cafeteria on Wednesday, December 13 from 8:45- 9:45. All Kiker students are invited to come shop. We will have slime, stress balls, decorative jars, paintings, ornaments, gift ideas, a wheel of fun, and so much more! If you want to shop, send in quarters and dollars in an envelope with your name, teacher’s name, and labeled for Market Day. Items will cost between .50 to no more than $10. All money raised will be donated to Carrying Hope, a non-profit helping foster children, and The Austin Humane Society. Come shop and support excellent causes!
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.

All treats need to be on the Cafeteria Stage by 8:00AM on Friday, December 15. We also need volunteers to help us package the treats on Friday, December 15. Please sign up below.
