Fund Our Eagles- Donate Today
9/27/2023 11:32 am
This year's Fund Our Eagles Campaign provides funds for events and programs throughout the year that make Peter Kirk special. Our fundraising goal is $75,000: a one-time donation of $150 per student OR $300 per family. Below is a list of how our PTSA budget is allocated, from art supplies, scholarships and everything in between. 85% of our budget is used to support teachers and students in the classroom!
We have already raised 35% of our goal and with your generous donation we hope to achieve 100% by October 13. Thank you for your support, go EAGLES!
If you haven't donated yet, there's still time to push your student's classroom over the top! The winning classroom in each time slot will silly string the new Associate Principal Dongni Hu. Currently in the lead, with the highest percentage of families who have made a donation are:
Mrs. MacDonald (Grades 4/5)
Ms. Clarkin (Grades 2/3)
Mr. Romano (Grades K/1)
LEGO Scavenger Hunt October 4-8
9/27/2023 11:17 am
We are thrilled to announce the return of the LEGO Scavenger Hunt, taking place from Wednesday, October 4th, through Sunday, October 8th!
Keen-eyed students will have the opportunity to discover hidden LEGO kits throughout the exterior school grounds and local parks in the PK neighborhoods, using their creativity to craft something entirely new! This year's event introduces an exciting twist: when you find a mini build, you can redeem it for an extra batch of LEGO pieces outside the school at specified times, doubling the creativity and fun. This event is proudly sponsored by the STEM PK PTSA program and driven by Brick Forward.

Share your creativity with Reflections
9/27/2023 11:11 am
This Year's Reflections Theme is “I am Hopeful Because…”
What does “I am Hopeful Because…” mean? Let’s encourage our young artists to share their hopes and dreams, expressing the things to which they most look forward.
Reflections is not “just an art contest.” It helps kids take risks, be inspired, think creatively, and be celebrated for their creativity and work. Working towards a theme and on a timeline can help them build successful processes that will be useful throughout their lives.
Reflections Artwork Categories
The National Reflections program welcomes all grades and abilities to explore and be involved in the arts. Students submit their completed works of art in one or more of the available arts categories:
- Dance Choreography
- Film Production
- Music Composition
- Visual Arts*
The deadline to submit works of art is Friday, October 27, 2023 at 10:00pm. All submissions must be original works of art.
More details coming soon!
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to Andrew Wilson, Committee Chair Reflections Program, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
*Peter Kirk PTSA’s Reflections program is not accepting 3D artwork at this time. 3D art includes sculptures, dioramas, architecture, 3D printing, etc.
