At last week's school board meeting, I reported that KMHS student council collected over 150 food items for the food pantry during the Thanksgiving food drive. That was an UNDERSTATEMENT! Overall, KHS donated 347 non-perishable food items to the food pantry at the United Methodist Church in Patten :). The ladies that received the food were very appreciative and had tears in their eyes when we brought all of the food in. WAY TO GO KHS STUDENTS!!!!

7th Grade artists at KMHS explored different methods of drawing pumpkins. From their drawings, they created a collage version using colored paper. Artists then used a variety of patterns using lines with markers in each section to create contrast. Shoutout to Mrs. Howes for drawing out the artists in our students!

Last week, we received a generous donation in the form of a newly paved basketball court. During recess, children were thrilled to utilize this new space through basketball, four-square, chalk art, and matchbox car racing. Thanks to Mrs. Berry, who coordinated with Northeast Paving, Mr. Brackett, who scheduled the event, and the staff members that flexibly shifted their outdoor learning journeys/ teaching plans to make this possible. #wearekatahdin

Exploration Science - 8th Grade With Fall being so warm, Kayaking safety and practice was able to be extended. Students were able to practice getting in and out of the kayak, practice maneuvering around each other, and practicing paddling around the island in the ponds below KMHS. There was a lot of laughter and a lot of splashing, but most importantly, a lot of engaged learning was taking place. A great success for Exploration Science in the Middle School!

End of the quarter is always a celebration for us at KMHS. It is a celebration of success at not only an academic level, but a personal level as well. With that, as a celebration, Middle School Exploration Science purchased what was needed for S'mores and the students practiced their flint and steel fire making skills. The entire classes were spent cooking S'mores and sharing what they were expecting to learn next quarter.
