Kiker Night of Giving
Thursday, December 5
Kiker PTA & Austin Allies presents a Night of Giving! Kick-off the giving season by helping out others in the community. We will have many great non-profits talking about family volunteer opportunities in the area, as well as many fun projects to help support these organizations including: Austin Allies, Carrying Hope, Caritas, Women’s Storybook Project, Service Dogs, Inc., BookSpring, and the Austin Creative Reuse . Kids will put together backpacks for foster children, make cards for area citizens, create rainy day kits for our friends without homes, and look at fun ways to reuse materials. We will also be collecting the following:
– can goods for the Capital Area Food Bank
– hats and gloves for our sister school, Allison Elementary
– collecting crafting materials for Creative Reuse (https://www.austincreativereuse.org/donate/donate-materials/#weaccept)
– gently used books for BookSpring.
– materials to fill 6 backpacks for Carrying Hope (see the sign-up genius below)
– blankets (brand new preferred, but gently used also accepted)
We will have a short PTA General Membership Meeting at 6:00 and then the Night of Giving will start. We will have snacks, hot chocolate, and tea to stay warm and to get everyone ready for the giving season. Let’s show our kiddos that giving back to our community helps us all!
Please sign-up below to bring an items for the Carrying Hope backpacks or simply bring an items above directly to the organization (can goods, hats/gloves, gently used books, blankets, and crafting materials) to donate, no need to sign-up!

AISD Updated Safety System at Kiker
Always be prepared to show identification when visiting Kiker! As you are all planning visits to Kiker for any reason (with the exception of morning drop off) please always be prepared show identification. If you have been here before, we will ask you to provide your drivers license for us to scan and update in our system. If you have friends or family that will be coming with you, please make sure they bring identification as well.
If you need to pick your child up early, we will ask for identification. In addition, try to be here by 2:30. This will allow plenty of time for the buddies that escort them to the office to get back to class safely prior to dismissal. Please note that this system has been updated district wide. We thank you for your help and understanding while we work out all of the details!
