|Shop with a Mustang
This is our 11th year of serving our feeder schools by taking economically challenged kids Christmas Shopping. To date, we have assisted 34 schools to start their programs and two colleges. We have taken over 21000 kids Christmas shopping and raised over $328, 000. On December 14th we hope to take another 200 kids Christmas shopping. We spend on average of $220 per child.
Shop with a Mascot was developed by our Student Government (Mane Link) in 2003, led by Madelynn Woodall. The program is driven by donations from students, their families and Acworth and Kennesaw Business Association. This year’s Student Government would like to thank all the students, parents, and our partners for their dedication and devotion to our community.
If you would like to donate, please send a check to KMHS room 316.
Thank you Kennesaw Families

|The KMHS School Counselors and Sources of Strength need your help. We’ve adopted few children of infant to twelve years , boy or girl, in need of toys this holiday through the Cobb Foster Parent Association and we are collecting donations for them until Tuesday, December 10. If you have anything to donate (unused, unopened toys, money, or wrapping supplies) it will all be greatly appreciated! Please bring donations to Kristin Kneeland in the KMHS counseling office during the school day. Thank you so much!
On Fridays, the Counselors will be available in the Career Center during all lunches to answer your college & scholarship questions.

|Seniors – Requests for Transcripts & Letters of Recommendation
Below are some deadlines to keep in mind (originally posted on 11/20):
|Register today for AP exams @ www.TotalRegistration.net/AP/111739! If you are taking more than one exam, this is a good way to spread out the $ commitment. Register for first semester exams before the end of the calendar year and second semester exams before the March 21st deadline. Remember that each exam costs $89 with a one-time $15 administrative fee and a 3-hour course in college runs anywhere from $500 to $2400 (UGA and GA Tech have a flat rate for 1-6 hours). Be smart!
|Kennesaw Mountain High School Yearbooks are still available for sale until the end of December for $75.00. If you have not purchased a yearbook, log onto the yearbook website found on the main page of the KMHS webpage. You can go directly to www.jostensyearbooks.com . If you have any questions, see or email Mr. Mixon in room 208.|

|Shop With a Mustang is a program that our school puts on annually. Every year, our school, as a whole, raises money in order take hundreds of children who would otherwise not be able to go Christmas shopping out to The Avenue so that they may be able to celebrate the holidays just as we do. This year, however, we are caught with a lack of funding.If you can, we encourage you to help donate towards the cause. Together, we can still try and make a difference in these children’s lives. If you or anyone you know is interesting in making a donation, please ask your child to drop the money by the Mane Link desk at lunch. It would mean a lot to our school, our students, and our community.
Thank you in advance,
Mane Link – KMHS Student Government

Accident Avoidance Workshops
A quick quiz for you:
1.) Do you want to be more comfortable with the idea of sending your student out on to Atlanta roads?
2.) When trying to correct your student while driving, do you get the “I know, I know” or “let me drive” attitude from them?
3.) Does your student have more faith in their driving abilities, or think they know more about driving than you feel is justified?
4.) Does your student show little if any interest in driving or is uncertain, timid, or overly-anxious behind the wheel?
5.) Do you want your student to have more than “driver’s ed” in preparation for Atlanta roads because you feel the “absolute minimum” state requirements aren’t enough?
If you answered “yes” to more of these than you’re comfortable with, we can help with every single one of your above concerns, and then some.
The Accident Avoidance Workshops is “driver trainin’ the way it oughta be”.
The Workshops are coming right to Kennesaw Mt. High School this December. 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.
