Kilmer Holiday Show
Dear Kilmer Community,
We are really excited about our holiday event to be held on December 19th at 10:15 AM and then again at 6:15 PM at the Irish Social Club in West Roxbury.
Since we have never had an evening show, we are really trying to think through all of the details, but we are sure that there will be a learning curve.
Here are some of the parameters:
*Due to the size of the Hall, each family will be able to have 2 tickets to either the day or the evening show.
*Once we receive the RSVPs and have a total count, we will release additional tickets by raffle to those families that request them.
*Students are not required to attend the evening performance.
*We are going to ask for a $5.00 donation from each family to cover the cost of the hall. This is an option and families are simply invited to donate the money.
*Students will be able to go to the evening show without a family member. They will need to have permission and we will need to know by Friday, December 6th so that we can facilitate having enough supervision/chaperones.
*Parents, who have signed up to volunteer to set-up, clean up and possibly chaperone, will receive priority seating to one of the shows.
Please sign up here to volunteer!

Kilmer School Reusable Shopping Bags
Order your reusable grocery shopping bag and help the raise some funds for our school!
Bags are $3.50 each or 3 for $10.00 Forms were sent home in back packs and also available to download here on the website. (posted: 11/14/13)
Just a reminder to parents, students are not allowed into the buildings and are not supervised on the playground before 9:20am.
Please do not drop your children off early, as there is no staff available to supervise them.
Unfortunately, there is also no staff to supervise students in the building after school.
For safety reasons we are not allowed to let people into the building who are not part of the official after school program and staff.
Thank you so much for your understanding and cooperation. We are striving to keep all our students safe. (posted: Nov. 15)
