Kennesaw Mountain NJROTC Clinches National Title
After a grueling two day orienteering meet held over the President’s Day weekend, the Kennesaw Mountain Navy JROTC Orienteering Team returned from California crowned as the U.S. Navy’s JROTC Orienteering Champions for 2015.
Orienteering is a competitive international sport that combines racing with navigation. It is a timed race in which individual participants use a specially created, highly detailed map to select routes and navigate through diverse and often unfamiliar terrain and visit control points in sequence. Speed and accuracy defines the sport, imagine a cross country team who has no defined trail but must find all of the legs of the race with only compass and map.
The Navy Mustang Orienteers have competed throughout the fall and winter months in a series of meets throughout Georgia culminating in a 2nd place finish at the Navy Southeastern Regional Championship on Jan 24th at Fort Yargo State Park. That finish qualified the team to compete at Navy National JROTC Orienteering Championship held at Vasquez Rocks State Park in the Sierra Pelona Mountains adjacent to the Mojave Desert.
Varsity Runners Jake Hackney, Spencer Human, Meg Richardson, Dylan Knight and John Erskine turned in superb performances over the two day meet; Spencer Human finished 2nd overall and John Erskine 8th overall. The sole Lady Mustang on the team, Meg Richardson finished in the 2ndplace female category in spite of running with an injured hip.
Not to be outdone, the JV squad finished 3rd at the meet. Limited to only 5 runners per course/per team this “JV” team was laden with Varsity talent ensuring a solid finish. Lukas Fiechtl, Patrick Legarretta, Justin Dickerson, Ioan Sofian, and Andrew Burgess-Wise.
Strong performance from the Novice Team of Miles Grable (6th) Jalen Tatum, Colin Woodham (8th), and Ethan Masters (2nd) guarantees future success next season!
The Kennesaw City Council will be recognizing these national champions at the March 2nd City Council Meeting. Well done Navy Mustangs!

Help a Student in Need
Dear Mustang Family,
Please join the efforts to stock a clothing closet for our students in need! We would LOVE to have all sizes of clothing, coats, very gently used shoes, hygiene items and re-gifted brand new underwear/socks that you can donate from your children and/or extended family and friends!
At any time of the year you may drop off washed items to the school social work office just past the front office in the guidance suite #159. ( I also take electronics at box in attendance office to raise $ to help families with emergencies, and non-perishable food items).

Accident Avoidance Workshops
Driver trainin’ the way it ought’a be!
When your student completes the 30 hours of driver’s ed classroom, 6 hours behind the wheel, and 40 hours of parent-supervised driving, you’ve just equipped them with the absolute minimum amount of training required by the state. Some stop there and hope it’s enough. But for those of you who insist they achieve more than the “minimum” skill level, call the Accident Avoidance Workshops. We fill in the gaps, and extend their abilities. We’re “driver trainin’ the way it oughta be”.
The Workshops are coming back to Kennesaw Mt. High School this June 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.
Kennesaw Mountain Parents and Teachers receive special pricing on Security monitoring or a new Security System (for New Customers Only)
$50.00 Goes to our PTSA when you sign up and mention you are from Kennesaw Mt. High.
