Crossing Guard Training
During the next several weeks, starting on April 7th, the Prince William Crossing Guard Office will be training newly hired Crossing Guards at crossings that serve Kerrydale ES.  There will be a certified instructor with the trainee(s) at all times. Expect traffic to be slower than usual at training sites. The safety of the children crossing is our primary concern, with the expeditious movement of traffic a secondary goal.  Any questions, please contact the Crossing Guard Office Commander at 703-792-4593.
Start off your day on the right foot!
Join us for a Walk to School Day on Friday, April 24th at 8:20am.  Join Kerrydale staff and students as we walk to school.  Please meet us at 8:20am at the corner of Ketterman Drive and Kerrydale Road. We are also meeting at the corner of Hendricks Drive and Kerrydale Road.  If the weather is inclement, the students will walk inside the hallways of the school. What a great and healthy way to start off your day! Hope to see you there!

Help the Earth & Kerrydale!

Kerrydale collects and receives money for every ink or toner printer cartridge or old cell phone we recycle. The cartridges are recycled and if the phones can still be used, they go to a women's violence charity to help women who need them or they get recycled as well. Please help Kerrydale work towards a cleaner earth while earning money to help our technology program. Cartridges and phones can be sent in with your child anytime or brought up to the computer lab and dropped off in the big box in the mailroom or in the front of the lab. In the past, we have used the money to purchase student software, digital cameras, headphones and other equipment.  Thank you in advance for your support!
