Kensington Parkwood PTA is here for you.

Welcome to the KP PTA website. Our PTA is a volunteer, parent-run organization committed to supporting the KP community. We work to enrich the school experience, create opportunities to come together, and keep everyone better informed! Join the KP PTA and donate to the Eagle Fund here. Come volunteer anytime!

WEEKLY UPDATE: Sept 14

JOIN THE PTA by donating to the Eagle Fund! The Eagle Fund supports academic materials and programs, teacher supplies, technology resources, events and more! This year, the PTA has provided all teachers $300 to support their classes in creative ways, and to expand wellness and mental health programs. Learn how you can donate online here!

  • Thursday Sept 17 at 7pm: Virtual PTA Meeting (via Zoom) to review the proposed budget and board slate.

  • Friday Sept 18 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm* - PTA Voting: drive up and drop off your paper ballot at the KPES lower lot (same location where material pickup was held). Asha Subramanian, PTA Secretary, will be there to collect your ballot. Please print out the attached ballot and wear a mask when dropping it off. Extra paper ballots and pens will be available for anyone who cannot print it prior to dropping off.
