Mr. McKinley

Please take a minute to read the post below from FKE. Our very own Mr. Mike McKinley is awaiting heart surgery. We would love our FKE family to come together to show him just how much we support him and his family. Mike is quietly awesome at FKE. He is always willing to help out and is so appreciated!! Let’s show him how much we love and support him!

Below is a message from FKE.

NAFCS Education Foundation Celebration Donations

Attention parents and grandparents of FKE students!

The annual NAFCS Education Foundation Gala will be held on Friday, March 9 at 6pm at Huber’s Plantation Hall. This year, the main goal is to involve more parents, and we are hoping you will consider attending with us! In an effort to help achieve this goal, here is a list of Frequently Asked Questions.

Who can attend?
Any adult interested in supporting the education of Floyd County students. Parents specifically encouraged!

What do I wear?
Wear something that makes you feel comfortable. The majority of attendees dress in business or business casual clothing, and some who like to get dressed up wear cocktail attire. It’s up to you.

How much does it cost?
We would LOVE to have you. (It’s also a great way to support the schools and advertise for your business at the same time!) Tickets range from $60 per individual to $3000 for a station sponsorship, and everything in between…there is literally something for everyone. Go to the event website for more information or to purchase tickets: https://one.bidpal.net/educationcelebration

What happens at the gala and what’s included?
