Hi everyone! This is just to let you all know that the collection of chocolate hearts money starts today and will end on Friday. Jenna and I put envelopes in each advisors' rooms with lists of who owes money and how much. Don't forget to bring in your chocolate hearts money before Friday if you bought any for yourself, your friends, or your teachers; because all of the profits are going to help an important cause, the National Alliance on Mental Illness.

Each year, as part of our celebration of National Engineers Week, we gather KPS students across divisions to participate in our annual STEM Sisterhood projects. Due to COVID restrictions, we will run an asynchronous STEM Sisterhood this year. You should have received an email from Ms. Crowe with instructions on how to view a special STEM project created by your Primary School STEM sister. Please view the video and leave a comment for your STEM sister before the start of Spring Break. Thank you!
