Did you know that your PTSA funds teacher grants each and every year? This allows teachers to apply for and receive funding for enrichment materials in the classroom that the school or county doesn’t have the funds to pay for. In the past, this has included classroom sets of calculators, equipment for the culinary arts, iPads and other technology and much, much more! It’s time for teachers to fill out there wish lists once again. All teachers can apply and any items granted stay with KMHS even if the teacher should change schools. This is one way that joining and supporting the PTSA directly benefits your student and your student’s teachers. Teachers, please look for the application forms in your mailboxes on Monday.

The nomination process for the Governor’s Honors Program is currently underway. The Governor’s Honors Program (GHP) is a residential summer instructional program designed to provide high-achieving and artistically talented high school students challenging and enriching educational opportunities not usually available during the regular school year. Rising juniors and seniors in Georgia’s public and private high schools, as well as students enrolled in home school, may be nominated by their teachers. This year’s program, located at Berry College, will be in session from June 17 through July 14. If the idea of spending four weeks this summer on a college campus, studying in-depth an academic field of interest with outstanding high school and college instructors appeals to you, speak to one of your academic teachers as soon as possible or swing by Room 327 to see Ms. Dye for more information. Potential fine arts candidates should see Mr. Dunn in the Fine Arts Building. The Governor’s Office of Student Achievement provides additional information at the GHP website:https://gosa.georgia.gov/governors-honors-program.

Volunteering at Homecoming is always exceptional because you get to see the students dressed up in their finest!
In an effort to promote creativity and individuality, KMHS club pictures this year will be taken by the individual clubs. For clubs to be featured, the yearbook staff needs to receive the club photo by October 25th along with the names of those students featured in the club itself. Parents, please make sure your students are attending their upcoming club meetings so they don’t miss out on being included in the picture!
School picture make-up day is on Thursday, September 21st in the media center during all lunches. This is for students who missed the picture days or those who bought a package and wish to have a re-take. Students will need to bring their original package to school on make-up day if they want a re-shoot.
