Welcome to Kettering Elementary School!

 Kettering Elemementary Have a fantastic Kettering Cougar Day! 









Hello, Parents, 

We wanted to inform you that our KES PTA is rebuilding and revitalizing for the 
2015-2016 school year.  This year we will be collaborating with the Prince George’sCounty Council PTA and they will mentor our new PTA officers and committees for the next year to ensure we are successful.  In order to have a successful PTA here at KES we also need you to come out and participate.  We will hold a meeting on September 29 at 7 pm to conduct elections for the positions of president, president-elect, secretary, and treasurer.  You will also be able to join the PTA that evening and that will ensure your voice in the PTA and its efforts.  In order to make this a success, we need you so don’t hesitate, come out and see what we are planning for this year and provide your suggestions and ideas, and, you can participate on a committee too.  We will have food for this meeting so come out and network with other parents and work with us to engage, collaborate and succeed with our revitalized PTA team! 
We hope to see you there on Tuesday, September 29
th at 7 pm.
