“Thanks a Billion!”

Target Kicks Off A New Teacher Appreciation Campaign

Before you say farewell at the end of the school year, say thank you. That’s the message Target’s sending to students and parents everywhere with its Thanks a Billion” campaign, which invites guests to honor rock star teachers for all their hard work.

As part of the social campaign, guests are encouraged to share a message of appreciation through Target’s Facebook page or the Thanks a Billion website, honoring a teacher who has made an impact on their life. When a guest submits a note of gratitude (certain terms & conditions apply), Target will donate $25 to the teacher’s school with the opportunity for each school to receive up to $25,000.

Thank your Kennesaw Mountain Teacher(s) Today!!

  Kennesaw Mountain High PTSA needs YOU!

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!  Click here to go to Accident Avoidance website Accident Avoidance Workshops

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!

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 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!

The Special Dance

One of the ways KMHS developed a culture of servant-leadership is through an initiative we perform for students with special needs.  Believe it or not—it’s a dance. Yep. Each year, our students host a huge dance for kids with special needs around the county; over 700 kids come, and 400 students volunteer to be “mentors” (buddies for the kids, to have fun with them, dance with them and make their day amazing.)

“It takes a village to raise a child”, African Proverb.   This dance is sponsored by our student government, Mane Link.   North Star Church sponsors and host a reception for the special needs bus drivers, and teachers.  North Star Church provides hundreds of cookies and bottles of water for our guests and mentors.   Our PTSA provides water and the personnel to operate the concessions.   Our students transform our hallways and the gym into a magical dance hall.   Beauty and the Beat’s CEO, Ricky Discenza, provides the music.  

 

Our students are amazing with our special guests.   If you want to really see the impact our students can make on the lives of others?  Then attend this dance next year.  I assure you that you will be on emotional rollercoaster and feel satisfied and fulfilled knowing our Mustangs make a difference in this world.  

 

Thank you for all who participated in our dance.
