THE HAUNTED HALLS OF KINCAID IS COMING FRIDAY, OCTOBER 28th!
Our next Foundation Friday is a Spook-tacular one! Does your student have their Halloween costume picked out? Students can WEAR THEIR school appropriate COSTUME TO SCHOOL! Just have your student bring their $2 donation to the cafeteria and some not-so-scary Foundation volunteers will be there to stamp their hands with a Kincaid cougar paw. So get SPOOKY and support the Foundation!
On November 2nd, 3rd and 4th our school will have a Buckets for Books fundraiser to complete the funding for a complete set of Harry Potter books for each class room in third-fifth grades. Students can bring in their donations during this time. Look for more information from Mrs. P. about this event.

Some of our Target students have developed their own DonorsChoose project. They did some research, analyzed data and created their own solution to a problem that they felt was important. Your donations (no matter how small) can help these students see their project completed.
Other teachers at Kincaid also create projects on DonorsChoose throughout the year. Please take a moment to look over the projects and think about giving a little to support the students at Kincaid. Share the link on your Facebook and Twitter accounts. Email your friends and family members. Ask your employer if they match donations. With your help we can make sure our students have everything they need to grow and learn.
Does your company have a donation matching program? Take a moment and check out Kincaid's DonorsChoose page and give to a class room right here at Kincaid. DonorsChoose is a wonderful resource for teachers that need/want supplies or equipment for their students. Give what you can, share the link with family and friends, post the link to Facebook and Twitter. It's a wonderful way to give back to your child's school.
