June 2020 Kromrey PTO Newsletter

Hello Kromrey parents/guardians and teachers,

For this last newsletter we are doing a “year in review” to look back at all the successes and accomplishments that occurred in the 2019 – 2020 school year. There are many reasons to celebrate Kromrey’s progress and the PTO Board is grateful to play a role in supporting the teachers, administrators, and your students.

We are also looking forward to the 2020 – 2021 school year and we will be prepared to support the Kromrey community to the best of our ability.

Thank you for a great year, have a great summer, and we will see you this fall!

Your Kromrey PTO Team

1. Congratulations to our kids! - Congratulations to all of our students for completing their school year and advancing to the next grade.

The PTO offers special congratulations to our Kromrey 8th graders as they move forward to high school! To recognize this significant accomplishment, each student will have a sign with their name on it and two banners will be made saying “Congratulations 8th Graders”. The signs and banners will be hung at Kromrey by June 4th and will remain until mid-to-late June.
