Hornet Homecoming Parade and Bonfire on October 5th
There will be a Hornet Homecoming Parade and Bonfire on Wednesday, October 5th, 2016. The Parade starts at 6:30 and the bonfire will be held at the Kirtland Recreation Park (behind campus) immediately following the Parade. The Parade will travel from KES onto Rt. 306 in front of KHS and to the back of KMS. Participants include the KHS Marching Band, Homecoming Court, Class Floats, Cheerleaders and many more! In the back fields, our fire department is building a community fire, for everyone to enjoy. This event will be accompanied by music and concessions! A shuttle will be provided for those unable to walk up the hill to the park. Click here for an event flyer.
PSAT at KHS on October 19
This year all ninth, tenth and eleventh grade students have the opportunity to take the PSAT at KHS on Wednesday, October 19. The guidance department strongly recommends that students who are planning on attending college participate in this challenging experience. Interested students can register with Mrs. Sutliff in the guidance office. Deadline for registration is Thursday, October 13th.
KES Walkathon Fundraiser
The KES Walkathon Fundraiser is underway! The students have started to accumulate laps by walking in their physical education class this week with Mrs. G. I hope you will be able to join us for this family event on Friday at the high school track from 5:00 pm-6:00 pm prior to the start of the varsity football game.
The KES Walkathon is our major fundraiser for the school year. You will not be receiving any catalogs asking you to purchase over-priced items that you do not need. The walkathon is a healthy and fun alternative that will help purchase items that will directly benefit your child. Immediately following the walkathon, KES will receive a check. Then next week, teachers will begin ordering the items for which the students are raising money.
We hope you will consider joining us in this fundraising endeavor that will have an immediate and direct impact on your child this school year. If you have already donated, thank you! If you have not contributed and would like to, please go to https://go.rallyup.com/kes-2016. We look forward to seeing you on the track!
