KMHS Weekly Update Good Afternoon. Here are a few updates! Aug 30, 2022 The first couple days of school ran smoothly. Staff enjoyed seeing everyone and hearing about their summer adventures. Our soccer teams are off to a strong start. All teams have had a game. There are still openings if you are interested! See Mr. Harris for information and paperwork. We are especially in need of HS girls to join the team. As you may know, I am out with Covid so I am working from home and after school hours. Please contact me through the office until I am able to be there in person. I would like to thank everyone who made the first days go so smoothly…..Mel Cullens, Eryn Schmidt, Penny, Kathy and Dana, and everyone else who may have quietly stepped in to help out. Thank you all! Computers can be used for learning as soon as we have the signed form from you. Please remind your child if you have not seen it. If you need login information so you can follow progress on web2school contact Kathy in the office. If your students have completed community service hours during the summer have them stop by the office to get the forms for signatures. This is a great time to get service hours so don't forget each HS student needs 8 hours each year for a total of 32 hours at graduation time. This is a graduation requirement set by the district. Seniors met today to go over senior privilege, yearbook and other senior matters. They will meet periodically through the year to keep informed and on top of deadlines. Have a nice day! Shelley

We are very fortunate to have Roscoe ( the dog) joining our KMHS team this year. This is a program that took us a year to plan and approve and now he’s here. Roscoe has been in and out of the office all summer , met staff this week and is ready to meet the students. He is a trained 2 year old Sheepadoodle. He will not shed and is hypoallergenic. As you can see below he joined the staff on Wednesday! You will see more of Roscoe throughout the year.
We welcomed staff back to school this week to begin preparing for another exciting year at KMHS. New hires joined us on Tuesday and returning staff joined us Wednesday and Thursday. We covered various topics including policies, procedures, programs and more. We met with Melissa Condon from the Emergency Management team in Augusta. She taught us about personal awareness and gave us strategies to revisit our schools plan. We were treated to a very delicious meal from Olive Garden delivered in person by Sargent Lawn from the Air Force. He made a visit to our school earlier this summer and we set this date for him to meet the staff. His message was let’s support our US military and inform students of the potential opportunities for them. Great training days …..
