Dear Keating Families,

Welcome back everyone. Wow, what a summer! The weather has certainly made it easy to get outside, get moving and enjoy the beauty of our amazing community. I hope that you and your family were able to take full advantage of the fine summer weather.

As we swing into new routines, I encourage folks to mark next Thursday, September 14 on the calendar for the Keating Open House and Meet the Teacher Night from 6:00-7:30. We look forward to seeing you all here to meet your child's new teacher, explore the school and connect with M. Jungen and me.
