Dental Dates Needed
A dentist is coming to Kloefkorn on Nov 14th for all students that do not have a current dental date on file. If your student has seen the dentist within the last year please email me the date (if you have not already) and I will update the student’s information. Thanks so much for helping make Kloefkorn a successful school. Have a great week!
Picture Retakes & Orders
If you missed picture day or got your photos and don’t love them you will have an opportunity on October 25th to do a retake. Lifetouch offers a satisfaction guarantee. Return your portraits on retake day and they will re-photograph your child free of charge. If you’re still not satisfied, return your portraits for a full refund.
MAP Testing 3rd & 5th Grade
We will administer the Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) test to grades 3 & 5 during the weeks of October 23rd and November 6th. During these testing periods, we encourage you to make sure your children are in school unless they are ill. To learn more about MAP including the test dates, click here.    
Thanks Volunteers!
These past few weeks could not have happened without such amazing support from our Parent Volunteers! Thank you to all of our Fun Night committee heads and especially KayCee Wanser for taking our silent auction to a whole new level.    Shout out to our volunteers who helped set up for our annual book fair as well as all of the volunteers who helped make dinners for our valued teachers and staff during conferences!  Thanks again for helping the PTO bring such great things to our children, family, teachers, and staff at Kloefkorn.
Fall Parties
Kloefkorn’s Fall Classroom parties will be here soon and we need your help! The party is on Tuesday, November 21 – about 3 weeks away. Parties last 30 minutes and will be held at the following times: Preschool – 10:30; 1st grade – 1:15; all other grades (K, 2-5) – 2:15. The party should involve kids eating the PTO-provided snack and 1-2 games and/or crafts; more party specifics will be announced as volunteers confirm. If you’d like to help with your child’s party, please sign up by Friday, November 10, using the link: If your classroom fills up and you’d still like to volunteer, please email Trisha Berry and she can help coordinate you with an open classroom or give you further direction.

Book Fair
Our total sales for the book fair were $4,386.36, with us taking around $1,300 in profits.  That money will go towards purchasing books and resources for the library and subscriptions to our online databases.  We also had 70 books (!!!) donated to classroom libraries.  What a success!  
Movie Night
It’s our first movie night of the year! Join us in this PTO-sponsored FREE family event! Cubs wear pjs and bring blankets to spread out on the floor of the multi-purpose room. Parents, feel free to bring camping chairs and stake out your spot at the back. Concessions are available for purchase. Make sure to get your PAW-corn bucket for $10 and get free refills ALL year!
Emoji Movie Friday 10/27 at 7pm.  With the proximity to Halloween, we invite Cubs to wear your costumes!
We had more than 1,440 Box Tops turned in this week, bringing Kloefkorn’s total to 7,563 Box Tops. UNBELIEVABLE!  Thank you!!
Can you help us reach our goal of 10,000 Box Tops by next Friday?  That means we still need 2,437 more Box Tops.   
We can’t do it without your help!
