Greetings Kingston Hill Academy Community!

I know that you most likely have questions related to the start of the school year that hopefully will be answered by the end of this newsletter.


By now you no doubt have heard that we are having a Back-to-School Event on Monday, August 29th from 5pm – 7pm.

What to expect at the Monday, Aug. 29th

Welcome Back-to-School Event

Class Lists will be posted at this event.

  1. Come by between 5:00 pm & 7:00 pm (Volunteers arrive 30 minutes before your shift start time).
  2. Tables will be set up outside where teachers/staff will be seated by grade to greet their students. You can drop off classroom donations and meet your child’s teacher! They will have T-shirts indicating what grade they teach.

Class Wishlist/Donations vs. School Supply List

Please note that a Class Wishlist or Donation list indicates items that teachers ask for the entire class’s use. While a school supply list is for your individual child. Please bring Wishlist items to the Back-to-School event & send school supplies the first day of school. Click here for your child’s class wishlist and school supply list.

New KHA Playground Coming Soon!

KHA fundraising efforts last year wrapped up by late June with funds to support the purchase and installation of new playground equipment and new playground certified mulch. The first half of the equipment was installed the first week in August. However, the remaining equipment isn’t due to arrive until early October. Then, the fresh 12 inch thick mulch will be spread over the entire playground. The equipment is coming from Germany and with supply chain issues still looming, we are unable to get it here sooner.

The Good News & the Bad News

KHA students will have a brand-new state-of-the-art playground to play on this school year. However, the current condition of the playground is unsafe and therefore will be roped off and not be used until all equipment and mulch is installed, and big machines are offsite. I will keep you posted as things progress.

Look for information regarding updated bus routes and times in your email from Susan Wilcox, our office manager, sometime this week.

Lunch Menu and order forms will go out this week. If you haven’t already, you should get the MySchoolBucks app and set up an account for your KHA Student.

You should have received a Welcome Packet in the mail by now. If not, please email
