SUBJECT: Kincaid Cat Tracks for August 2021 - Welcome Back!


The new school year is here and everyone is excited to have students back in the classroom. 

Thank you to the families in attendance for Meet & Greet. A special shout out to Ms. Blake for having Sprayberry High School band members and cheerleaders on site to welcome our youngest students during the school bus ride-along portion of the morning. 

Immediately following Meet & Greet, Kincaid PTA held its first general meeting of the year. The new executive officers were introduced and the 2021 budget approved. Kincaid Foundation provided details about their mission, Family Investment Campaign and grant spending. This year's focus is rebranding to showcase PTA at Work--delivering quality activities that have an impact.

As you read through this newsletter, check out all the things coming up and the ways PTA and Foundation support our students, our school personnel and our diverse community.
