Big Bluejay Madness

Staff Vs. Students





September 20th High Attendance Day!

Attendance HERO

Thursday, September 20th, has been designated state-wide as “High Attendance Day” for Kentucky schools.  This day highlights the importance of regular school attendance and the correlation between attendance and student performance.  Students who attend class regularly are more likely to keep up with their daily lessons, assignments, and academic achievement. 

Awards will be distributed statewide based on each individual school’s attendance percentage.  The school in each category (elementary, middle and high) with highest percentage attendance for that day will be awarded $500!

Let’s strive for 100% attendance on Thursday, September 20th and everyday!

Bluejay T-shirts

The PTO is taking up orders for Keavy T-shirts.  Order one so you can wear it to Big Bluejay Maddness on October 4th.  Shirts are $12 and the money is due by September 21st.  You can write checks out to Keavy PTO.

Kindergarten teachers and assistants welcomed all grandparents to attend a special breakfast at school on Monday, September 10.  They had a great turnout and it was such an honor to have them in our school.
