Kramer Enews 5/19/23

School News and Information

This will be our last E-News for the year.  We want to thank you for your support throughout this year and wish you all a safe and happy summer!

We have had a fun and amazing week!  We had our retirement assembly, Kramer talent show, 5th Grade STEM Showcase, Science Week, Kramer Mile, Field Day, and staff lunch choices.  Thank you to everyone that visited, helped, and supported Kramer this week.  


Kramer Mile- Kramer PTG

Thank you to everyone that donated to our Kramer Mile.  We were able to raise over $16,000 for our Kramer PTG.  We will be able to fund field trips, and staff requests, and provide numerous other opportunities next school year.


We had tons of volunteers help make this event a success.  A big thank you to our Miami partners, Russ Peterson (MU Track) and Darrell Hallberg (MU Athletic Department).  

Thank you to Chief John Jones and Chief John Detherage from the Oxford Police & Fire Department for keeping our streets closed and safe for our Kramer participants.  We couldn’t have done it without their help and support.  


Thank you to all of the parents, friends, and family members who lined Sycamore Street.  Thank you for cheering on over 530 students and 70+ staff members walking/running to Millett.


5th Grade Clap out

We will have the clap out on the last day of school.  We will begin at 2:00.

5th grade will come down the stairs, go through 2nd grade, 1st grade, library, kindergarten main entrance area, cafeteria, and out the bus loop doors.

3rd and 4th graders will fill in from upstairs.  They will line up in the library and toward kindergarten.

Parents can line around the walking circle/track of the bus loop.

5th graders will do one lap, come in through 2nd-grade doors and head back up.
