Core Ongoing Annual Programs:
LOVE YOUR SCHOOL FUNDRAISER
The PTA holds one major fundraiser a year called Love Your School, which helps fund all PTA initiatives including: major enhancements to Kiker (i.e. sunshade, drop-down screen in cafeteria), teacher supply reimbursements, and all other programs reflected below. We have one major push in the Fall, but you can donate anytime. More info here.
KIKER COMETS STUDENT DIRECTORY
PTA sponsors and coordinates the publication of our Kiker Comets Student Directory, which is printed and distributed each year at the start of the school year. Member login to the online directory can be found here.
REFLECTIONS ARTS RECOGNITION & ACHIEVEMENT PROGRAM
The National PTA Reflections Program is an arts recognition and achievement program. The theme for 2017-2018 is “Within Reach”. Students can submit original works of art expressing the theme in six areas: Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Musical Composition, Photography, and Visual Arts.

Kiker PTA provides funding for the reading materials, as well as helps with the organization and training of volunteers in support of this important program at Kiker. Camp Read is a volunteer group that helps during school hours with selected students who need a little extra boost with their reading skills. The program is supported by Kiker Administration and PTA, and students are referred to the program by Kiker teachers and administration. Learn more about Camp Read at Kiker…
SCHOOL GROUNDS ENHANCEMENTS
PTA sponsors initiatives to enhance our school grounds for the benefit of our children. Past initiatives included additions to the Kindergarten playscape, butterfly garden, and picnic area rock & water garden. Connect with Kiker Beautification on Facebook to stay updated on opportunities to help with school ground enhancement initiatives.
Twice a year (or more) the PTA appreciates our wonderful and hard working teachers with a luncheon. A room is transformed for a day into a small bistro and is filled with color and music to create a unique dining experience. A variety of homemade dishes are prepared by parent volunteers.
