TEACHER APPRECIATION WEEK
Next week is KMHS Teacher Appreciation Week and KMHS PTSA is organizing a wonderful week of events. We would like to thank California Dreaming, Massage Envy, Doctors for Health & Wellness Foundation, Autobell Car Wash and NorthStar Church for providing special treats for our teachers and staff!
Teachers love nothing more than to know that they have made a difference in the lives of our students. This weekend, would you encourage your child to write a note of appreciation to his/her teachers. Thank you cards will be available at the Mane Link desk. Notes can be delivered next week directly to the teacher by your student or placed in the Thank You Teacher box and we will deliver for them.
On Friday, May 1 we are asking for parents to drop off homemade or “not-so-homemade” desserts for a Teacher Dessert Buffet. Please drop off the desserts in the front office on Friday morning and they will be delivered to a special room for their enjoyment. Click on the link to sign up.
THANK YOU for all you do to support our teachers at The Mountain!

Accident Avoidance Workshops
Driver training’ the way it ought’a be!
The next KMHS Workshop is Wednesday, June 10
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 classroom session is on Wednesday, June 10. The driving portion is Saturday, June 13th or Sunday June 14th. Reserve your spot now before the sessions fill up!
