Two easy ways to help:

Teacher Flower Day

Wednesday, April 17

Kilgour's annual Teacher Flower Day is when each student will bring in a flower for each teacher in their class and then parent volunteers will collect and assemble a bouquet for the teachers. Please bring your flowers in and find your classroom's volunteer (usually a Room Parent) who can collect those.

We need volunteers for each class to collect and assemble these bouquets that the children are always so proud of! Please SIGN UP HERE. We should be done by 11am. Please bring shears/scissors and a bucket to collect flowers in. Vases will be provided by PTA.

Questions about flower day? Please contact your class room parents and/or Kelsey Graham at

Kilgour Transition Night

Wednesday, April 17

4:30 - 6:30pm @ Kilgour School

Come meet your students' next teachers and hear about the curriculum requirements for your upcoming grade-level. Please stay tuned for Principal Communications for more details on the evening's schedule. 

Special Bonus: VISION 2020 Overview to be unveiled.

Free Wine Tasting
(a Tornado Rain Check)

Thursday, April 25

from 4 - 6pm @ Unwind on Hyde Park Square

PTA Platinum & Carnival Presenting Sponsors and Kilgour parents, Charlie Williams & Erin Knodel of Lifetime Financial, are hosting a FREE wine tasting and fun Mustangs gathering at Unwind Wine Bar for Kilgour families. Historically, their events fill up fast, so get your tickets now! Be seeing you!
Please Note: If you already had tickets and last month's TORNADO kept you in your bunker, you're getting a rain check and those tix have been transferred. If you don't have tickets, please still RSVP- there are openings from people who were able to come last month.

Now Taking Self-Nominations for PTA Roles

Nominations due by Monday, May 6


Kilgour needs your VOICE, your ENERGY, your IDEAS. Kilgour families come in all shapes & sizes, with diverse backgrounds & experiences, from different lifestyles & neighborhoods. PTA wants and needs volunteers from every family to provide the strength this diversity offers our school. 

In addition to helping build Kilgour's community inside and outside our building, PTA provides annually on average over $150,000 dollars of financial support and uncounted thousands of volunteer-hours- all of it crucial to our students' success.

We cannot continue to do this without you! Please let us know how you're willing to help. Nominate yourself by filling out this form.
