Dear Parents, Students, and Friends of Kelly,
Beginning of School – I don’t know about you, but it seems like the school year had just concluded and we were already beginning again! I hope you and your family were able to have time for rest, relaxation, and family bonding.
Harvey Update – The flooring and painting work was mostly completed just before the start of school. The remaining floor work in the hallways should be completed this week and then the wall paint will be touched up. The old gym floor is currently being installed, but will take a few more weeks for ‘curing’, painting, and finishing.
School Uniforms – Some families have reported ordering and delivery issues with Hilfiger, our new uniform company. We have been in close contact with our Hilfiger representative who assures us they are working to address the challenges as quickly as possible (a letter from a Hilfiger executive was sent to all families recently). If you have uniform difficulties, please contact Mr. Krause.
New Staff – We have a number of new faculty and staff this year;
Ms. Edna Hornsby – Spanish
Mrs. Evan Hoffman – Speech, Drama
Mr. Laurence Williams – Social Studies, Basketball, Football
Mr. Jessie Sparks – Social Studies, Football
Mrs. Ann Bond – Theology
Mrs. Amelia Clayton – Counselor
Ms. Kiersten Lamb –Director of Recruitment & Admissions
Mrs. Anna Papoutsis – Executive Director of Advancement
Open House is Thursday, August 30 beginning at 5:30PM for new parents (9th grade & transfer students) and 6:00PM for all others. It will begin in the Centennial Complex. Parents will have the opportunity to meet all their student’s teachers and learn a little about the courses that they are taking. In the cafeteria, you will be able to volunteer for the Home and School Association and the Booster Club. Yearbooks, reserved football parking passes and tickets, all season sports passes, and Kelly spirit shirts will also be available for purchase.
Thank you for choosing Catholic education and Kelly School. We consider it a true honor and privilege to work with you, the parent, in the education and formation of your student. Please pray for God’s presence and guidance for each of us here at Kelly and know that we are praying the same for you and your family.
Roger S. Bemis
