Class of 2015
Hello Senior Parents!
What an exciting year this is for your seniors! We ask that ALL senior pictures are COMPLETED by September 1, 2014. Even if you are getting your Senior Pictures from a different source, you must go to through our Lifetouch offices to get a formal and an informal taken for the yearbook (the sitting fee is $30.00.) Make-up day will only be those who have not gotten their picture taken or dislike their picture and if they have already gotten their picture taken, there is no fee of $30.00. The make-up day is going to be on September 4th, during school.

Accident Avoidance Workshops
Driver trainin’ the way it ought’a be!
Teen fatalities up 19% … 1 in 4 teens crashes before they’re 17 … cars remain the #1 killer of teens … why? … because “driver’s ed” is still all that’s required. You need to require more of your student because today’s roads are different … today’s society is different … and frankly, your kid deserves it.
Whether building confidence in new drivers, or knocking the hot-rods down a few pegs, the Accident Avoidance Workshops’ goal is to save lives by positively impacting new drivers’ development, in both their decision making abilities and the physical skills necessary to maximize on their own vehicle’s capabilities without losing control of their vehicle, or themselves.
The Workshops are coming to back to Kennesaw Mt. High School this December and spaces will go quick! Click here for more information and for a complete schedule, or call 770-262-7009. If you are ready to register you may click here.
