Online Technology Consent Forms

During the week of August 15, each student brought home an Online Technology Consent Form for you to sign. By signing this document, your child is authorized to use online technology tools while at school. Per Cobb County policy, any learner who does not return this form will be denied access to online technology at school. The Online Technology Consent Form must be returned to your child’s homeroom teacher by Wednesday, August 31, 2016 for online access to continue.

KMHS PTSA Needs You!

The KMHS PTSA would like you to consider chairing or serving on one of our committees for the 2016-2017 school year.  There are plenty of areas where parents can be involved.  Click on the following link to see all the volunteer opportunities. Committees/Volunteers  If you love helping kids and want to be involved please email volunteers@kmhsptsa.org or president@kmhsptsa.org to join us for a fun year!  Following are the committees that still need a chair or co-chair.

Family Engagement:
The Family Engagement Committee addresses the very foundation of PTSA by promoting the education, health, and safety for all children. The inherent goal of the committee is to help strengthen, support, and sustain the involvement of parents in the lives of their children.  For example, during Red Ribbon Week we work to start the discussion of drug & alcohol abuse between students and their parents.  Events may be held during the school day, evenings or on weekends.

Male Involvement:
The purpose of the Male Involvement Committee is to encourage, strengthen and support the efforts of male involvement in the education of children. It is our ultimate goal to provide opportunities to men to not only become more engaged in the education of children, but to also offer men an opportunity to become more involved with other men who are facing, or have faced, similar situations and stereotypes commonly held within the greater community.

Legislation:
The main purpose of the Legislative Chair is to educate and share knowledge.  The Chair will keep informed about Georgia or National legislative issues and then report on passed or pending legislation to our PTSA members by articles in the e-news or other appropriate forums. The Chair will also attend legislative and advocacy workshops offered by Georgia and National PTA.  The Chair will work with the Family Engagement Chair to advocate for our children.
