Welcome to the new 2020-2021 School Year!

Hello!

The KMS PTO would like to welcome you all back to the new 2020-2021 school year! We hope that you’ve been healthy and somewhat sane during the “longest Spring Break ever…” It has been approximately 5 months (and counting) since your child has set foot in a classroom to learn!

We’d like to thank the KMS teachers and staff for putting in time and determining the best course of action to reach out and teach our KMS kids! They have spent many hours researching and implementing the tools for our children to learn. Thank you so much!

The KMS PTO will be conducting their monthly meeting via Zoom today at 5pm. If you are interested in attending our meeting, please contact us and we’ll provide the Zoom link info to you via email.

Thank you!

80th Anniversary KMS T-shirt orders

We hope that this post finds you and your family well. Given the current circumstances of the COVID situation, we would like to offer order refunds to any families that may have changed their mind. Please reach out to us on the Contact Us page, provide us with your order number and your refund request and we will process the refund as soon as possible.

To those who are eagerly awaiting their orders, we are also looking into shipping/delivering the orders out to families based upon your billing address since school will not be in session until May (at the earliest). If you would like your items to be shipped/delivered elsewhere, please Contact Us and provide us with your new shipping address.

We still have a number of shirts and hoodies available and if you are interested in ordering, please visit our store.

Please take care, stay safe, and let’s flatten the curve.

Taste of Kaimuki cancellation

Dear Kaimuki Middle School Ohana,

As the COVID-19 outbreak continues to spread in the US, many educational institutions are cancelling extracurricular activities to prevent the spread of the virus. As of this letter, Hawaii has confirmed two cases of the COVID-19 infection on Oahu and KMS PTO is taking precautionary health measures to protect our Ohana and the community, by cancelling the Taste of Kaimuki Middle School event scheduled for Friday, March 27.  Our decision to cancel this event was made after careful evaluation of the current COVID-19 situation and actions that would need to be in place to reduce the risk of transmission.  Based on these considerations, we recognized that we would not be able to provide an event that guaranteed the safety of our Ohana, community members and food vendors, entertainers and volunteers. 

We would like to send a big MAHALO to the KMS families and staff who were so generous and enthusiastic about answering the call to help with donations of ideas, time, beverages, equipment, supplies and funds to make this event a success.  As we continue to monitor the situation, please know that we are continuously brainstorming ways to make up for this event by providing other opportunities to celebrate the great things about KMS. With regards to the drinks that were donated, we would like to let you know they will be used to benefit the students at KMS.  However, if you would prefer that we return your donation, please contact us at kmspto.org/contact-us, to make arrangements to  pick-up from the school. To those who have generously loaned us your coolers, please stop by the front office between 7:30AM – 4:00PM during spring break to pick up your item.

In celebration of KMS’s 80th anniversary, we created a commemorative shirt and hoodie that will be available to the KMS Ohana and community.  You may purchase these items at the KMS PTO Store, kmspto.org/store.  First distribution of shirts and hoodies is expected on Friday, March 27.  We are happy to let you know that the shirts and hoodies have been approved to wear to school on any day of the week, but only have limited quantities, so order yours today!  The profits from the sales of the shirts and hoodies will be used to support programs and events at KMS.

We thank you for your support and understanding.  Please feel free to contact us via email at kmspto.org/contact-us, if you have any concerns, questions or suggestions. 

Be safe and stay well! 

Mahalo for your time and support,

KMS PTO Board
