It is Annual Fund Season!

Remember we are looking for 100% participation from our families.  No amount is too small!

The KMS Annual fund is our way of making sure the school raises the money it needs to continue providing the highest quality in education, staff retention and appreciation as our annual fund contributions are our main source of funding for an annual bonus given to all staff.  Along with the Annual ArtFest and Raffle, the KMS Annual Fund represents our long-term commitment to strengthen and enhance all aspects of the school, particularly the following:

  • Teacher Retention and Improved Benefits Program
  • Ongoing Teacher Development Trainings
  • New Program Materials
  • Organic, Vegetarian Food and Garden Development
  • Facilities Improvements

A contribution to our annual fund goes a long way to helping us continue to reach our goals. To contribute to the Annual Fund, please use the donate via Paypal button above or contact us at
