    Introducing the KRS Spirit Shirt! 
    This year the administration and PTO have worked hand in hand to design the brand new 2017-18 KRS Spirit Shirt. 
    Each grade will have its own signature color, used to encourage class spirit throughout the year on Spirit Days, Field Trips, Field Day, etc. These signature colors will follow the classes through their years at Kings Road School. Students may wear the same shirt for as many years they like or buy the 2018-19 shirt next Fall.  Our hope is that each child will have a Spirit Shirt to wear this year. 
    The PTO is offering the shirt at a subsidized cost of $5 per child. Please follow the link below to order the best size for your child. We will have sample sizes available at the Open House on September 5th and in the office afterwards. The shirts will be made of 100% preshrunk cotton. 
    The PTO will also be providing matching shirts for teachers and administrators.

    As requested by Mrs. Koop, Miss Tavaglione, and the classroom teachers, the designated t-shirt colors will be:

    KRS Class of 2023 - Kindergarten - Purple
    KRS Class of 2022 - First Grade - Red
    KRS Class of 2021 - Second Grade - Orange
    KRS Class of 2020 - Third Grade - Yellow
    KRS Class of 2019 - Fourth Grade - Green
    KRS Class of 2018 - Fifth Grade - Turquoise

    Special thanks to Andrea Shemeley and Mary Skinner 
    for their design work!

    Also available for a limited time, a new & improved selection of KRS Spiritwear! Back by popular demand KRS hats & pajama pants! A portion of every purchase will be donated back to the PTO so before you head to the mall for back to school shopping, please head to the KRS Spiritwear Store to support your favorite cause! 

    All orders must to be placed by Sunday, September 17th.
