Help Support the PTA: Show Eagle PRIDE!
The Kingsbury PTA is raising money for several spring initiatives: refurbishing the greenhouse; hosting the Teacher Appreciation Luncheon (May 7th); and hosting the Spring Festival (May 10th)!

Kingsbury families are encouraged to purchase Eagle PRIDE T-shirts today! Please share this fund raiser with your family and friends.

Note: on the fund raiser website, listed below, donations are accepted without having to make a T-shirt purchase.

Purchase your T-shirt today — the goal is to sell 100 shirts by Friday, April 11th!

To check out the T-shirt design and to place an order, visit the Kingsbury PTA booster website at

Each shirt is $20 and is available in both adult and youth sizes. Fifty percent (50%) of each shirt purchase goes directly to Kingsbury PTA's spring initiatives.

When you wear an Eagle PRIDE T-shirt, you are raising awareness of our wonderful school!

All shirts will be shipped to the school and distributed by Kingsbury PTA volunteers upon arrival. If you have questions, please email Ms. Caryn Wick.
