Important Fall Athletic Information

Dear 6th Grade Parents,

KMS Athletics is starting to plan for the upcoming 2019 fall sports seasons at Karrer Middle School and we wanted to pass along some helpful information to you as you begin to transition as a 6th grade parent to a 7th grade parent with a student eligible to play sports in the fall for Karrer Middle School.
