Our Field Trip is this Wednesday. Remember to pack a disposable lunch (no lunch boxes).  We will wear our KES Kindergarten t-shirts. (I’m sending them home today) All background checks must be done by today in order to chaperone this trip.  Money is due by tomorrow please for students and chaperones.
