There are a few weeks left to donate to our GIFT CARD DRIVE! THANK-YOU to everyone who has so generously contributed so far to our KMHS community GIFT CARD DRIVE. We appreciate your donations so much ~ but the needs are SO GREAT. There are plenty of spots on our sign up genius that have not been taken. Therefore, the Gift Card drive will CONTINUE through January. If you received gift cards over the holidays that you won’t use, please consider donating them to the KMHS gift card drive.
All gift cards will be held by the school social worker, who will distribute them throughout the school year when a student has an emergency need. Again, 100% of this drive will stay with the KMHS student family. Thank-you for your help. Gift cards should be turned in to the front office throughout the month of January.
To help, please go to:

The Accident Avoidance Workshop is a great class for new and inexperienced drivers. Only a few spots remain. AAW is also a KMHS PTSA Business Partner and gives the PTSA a cash donation for each student who enrolls in the course. A few spots may still be left. Inquire today.
Studies show the average time between accidents for experienced drivers is 15 years. For a teen, it’s 10 times more frequently. So the question isn’t “Will my student need this training?” … the question is “Will you have given your student the training before they need it?” Every fatal teen accident in the State of Georgia for the past three years could have been prevented by applying the content taught in the Accident Avoidance Workshops. Research has proven if your child dies before they’re 20, there’s more than a 50% chance a motor vehicle will be involved in that tragedy.
