Dear KHA Families,


Despite the gloomy weather lately, there is so much to celebrate at KHA right now that I can’t even contain my excitement. See below for some of the recent successes we have had so far this year!


Move-a-Thon 🏃

Thank you so much to the PTO and you all for helping your children spread the word to help us raise a staggering $29,000 with this year’s Move-a-Thon! All of the proceeds will be going directly back to the students in some way and that is just plain awesome. But wait – there’s more!


America’s Healthiest Schools Award 💪

Last year, Nurse Judy nominated KHA for America’s Healthiest Schools and loe and behold – we won! This means the KHA is one of only 781 schools in the entire country to be recognized for supporting the physical, mental, and social-emotional health of students, staff, and families.

Feinstein Golden Tickets 💸

The next round of Golden Tickets are being pulled this Monday. Tune in to WPRI Channel 12 at 4:30 to see if your child won. Who knows – maybe we will have another winner 🙂
