Kindezi O4W PTCA

Welcome to the Kindezi Old Fourth Ward Parent Teacher Community Alliance website! The Kindezi O4W PTCA is focused on supporting Kindezi’s mission of educating the whole child.

Our Vision: Every parent, teacher and administrator working synergistically and in collaboration with community partners towards providing an optimal educational experience for our scholars.

Our focus for the 2019-20 school year is to support the school's efforts to celebrate LITERACY!!

How can we support our students? Let's SWARM! SWARM stands for "Students Will Always Read More" and is a 20-30 minute independent reading block from 7:50 AM to 8:20 AM Tuesday-Friday for all K-8 Classrooms. During this time students are reading their independent reading books while teachers are conferencing with students around their reading. You can message the teacher and come to read to a class any morning that you are free to do so!

All efforts by the PTCA are accomplished through committees. The general meetings are times when we can come together to update everyone about the committee work as well as to welcome new attendees. Please see our list of committees and join us!

The general meetings are also a great time for members to network, share ideas and voice your school concerns. Meetings are held in the Media Center. The 2019-2020 school year general PTCA meetings will be on the following dates:

          • September 26th, 4pm, in conjunction with Curriculum Day
          • November 8, 8am
          • December 12th, 4pm, in conjunction with Curriculum Day
          • January 10, 8am
          • February 27th, 4pm, in conjunction with Curriculum Day
          • April 17, 8am

The PTCA also arranges for monthly fundraising dine-out opportunities once a month at a variety of participating restaurants. This is another great chance to meet up with other parents!

We are looking forward to seeing you!
