Kilpatrick Elementary celebrated the return of its students, teachers, staff and volunteers with several back to school events. The students were welcomed back to the school for Meet the Teacher Night on Wednesday, Aug. 17 where students were not only able to meet their teachers and see their new classrooms, but they were able to purchase spirit wear for the upcoming school year. This year’s theme in the outback is “OKE On Top of the World…Let the Adventure Begin.”
In addition to this event, the PTA welcomed back the school’s wonderful teachers and staff back by hosting their annual luncheon on Friday, Aug. 19. At OKE, the first day of school is not complete without a “Welcome Back Coffee,” which gives parents an opportunity to meet other volunteer parents and get familiar with the many volunteer opportunities in the Outback.
With the start of the school year, Kilpatrick kicked off its Birthday Book celebrations the first week of school. Students who donated Birthday Books to the school library included: Rohan Bhat, Evan Mungaiu, Zoe Charles-Zekeri, Breno Rocha, Matthew Bobadillo, and Amy Lacey.
Finally, Cub Scout Pack 548 and Daisy Troop 17516 raised money through popcorn and cookie sales and donated part of the proceeds to the beautification of Kilpatrick Elementary. The scouts also helped plant the butterfly garden in front of the school.
