Tampa Bay Lightning Street Team Visits KES

Students got a visit from several members of the Tampa Bay Lightning Street Hockey team in May of 2018.  The group included Jassen Cullimore, a member of the 2004 Lightning Stanley Cup winning team.  The 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders attending the sessions each took home a hockey stick and ball to practice the skills they were taught during this visit.  Proper use of the equipment was stressed.  Students also received an autographed picture and ticket for next year’s regular season game.  Thank you, Tampa Bay Lightning Street Hockey team!!!

Thank You to our Awesome Volunteers!!

KES honors our awesome volunteers each year at the annual Volunteer Appreciation Breakfast.  Our 2017-2018 Volunteer of the Year was Mrs. Melissa Bywalski. “Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much!” It is with the help of our volunteers that we are able to do so many of the great things that we do at KES! Thank you for your dedication and service to our students.
