SUBJECT: Kincaid Cat Tracks for September 2021

The School Year Is In Full Swing!

It's official, the school year is in full swing! We are so very grateful for the love and support from the entire Kincaid community.

Our Parents, Students, Kincaid Staff - thank you for taking the time to join PTA, contribute to Foundation's Family Investment Campaign, order Cougar Pride spiritwear and purchase a yearbook. Your support has a direct impact and is so greatly appreciated. Let's Keep It Going!

Membership in the PTA is yearly from July 1-June 30. We have over 250  members signed up, we are still a long way away from 100% participation. If you haven't renewed your Kincaid PTA membership yet, please consider doing so. Click to visit our website and join today!

This year's focus is showcasing PTA at Work to deliver quality and impact. 

Our F.B.I. (Fellas Being Involved) - thank you dads for helping with Friday morning carpool. If you are a dad, uncle, grandpa or male friend and interested in being a member of the crew, contact and we will connect you with the coordinator, Kevin McAlpin.

Our Classroom Parent Representatives - thank you for your service in the classrooms and beyond. Parents should be receiving information from their child's classroom parent rep(s) soon about how you can help this year. We still have a few classes with open slots. If you are interested in being a room parent rep, contact and we will connect you to a classroom in need. 

Our Principal Ms. Blake - thank you for the awesome new digital message board. It's a great way to showcase business supporters, upcoming events and special announcements.

November 2nd - ED-Splost VI Is On The Ballot

This November, Ed-Splost VI (the 1% sales tax) is on the ballot. It is important for our school and community as our student population is expected to increase and our infrastructure ages and/or becomes outdated. Revenue from SPLOST is vital to the continued growth and maintenance of our capital needs (renovation and building of schools, upkeep of community facilities, purchase of school buses, safety enhancements, etc.). Projects listed for this SPLOST include a new annex for Kincaid Elementary and the rebuild of the long neglected Sprayberry High School.
