Are you looking to be more involved at Chief Kanim next year?  Do you want to be part of a team that gets great things done for our students and teachers? 

There are three(3) executive board member positions that are open for the 2018-2019 school year; Treasurer and 2 Co-Vice Presidents. If you would like to nominate yourself or someone you know who may be interested in one of the three(3) open board member positions, CLICK HERE to fill out the nomination form.  You can drop your sealed nomination form off in the school office PTSA box or send it via email to one of the Nomination Committee members listed below.

Joining this team helps our kids and our school to provide programs that cannot be filled by the district.  The executive team/board meets once a month for approximately 90 minutes. Next year’s board will determine the meeting dates and times, new programs we implement and continue to manage the great programs that are traditions at Chief Kanim. 

If you have questions, please contact one of the Nominating Committee members listed below.  We look forward to providing you with more information and hope you will join us on next year’s team!

We are excited to bring you an opportunity to be involved directly with the students in a new program called “Parent Presence”. There are times during the three lunches (10:45 – 12:15) Monday thru Thursday and (10:00am - 11:10am) on Fridays where there simply is not enough staff members available to be able to supervise the students outside and in the available gyms.  The result is a commons room and library full of kids with pent up energy that would like to be outside or in the gym playing games. 

Parent Presence will ensure that the students have options on where they spend their lunch “recess”. There will be a training meeting in November once all the volunteers are in place.  Teams of two(2) parents each day will check in with the office for their location assignment, and be issued walkie-talkies. The parent volunteers will be the supervision and adult presence in their assigned area (i.e. Outside, Gym or Commons).  

Our kids need you so they can enjoy some time outside of the school or in the gym during their lunch recess.  VOLUNTEER TODAY!

Thank You for your support!

Save the Date: June 7th is the 8th Grade Ceremony and Celebration

 The Committee organizing the dance after the ceremony will be looking for volunteers to chaperone and serve the food to the 8th graders. Traditionally this is an opportunity to “pay it forward”, by having 7th grade parents volunteer, so that the parents of the 8th graders may enjoy the evening, and the students don’t have their parents at the dance (which they never want). Please save June 7th 7:15 – 9:30pm and CLICK HERE to VOLUNTEER TODAY!

Fall City Days!

Fall City Days is coming up on Saturday, June 9th, for more information and to register, CLICK HERE.
