DONATE UNUSED COUPONS
We are excited to announce that KMHS is partnering with Alive Ministries. Alive Ministries’ mission is to eliminate hunger for at risk students in local schools so that they may have a greater opportunity to succeed in school and life. Alive Ministries partners with schools providing food and toiletries to children and families in need. One way Alive Ministries obtains food and toiletries is through couponing.
Please donate your unused coupon inserts to help feed children in need! Coupons can be dropped off in the front office in the box marked “DONATE COUPONS”. Please do not cut out the coupons.
When shopping for groceries, prescriptions, and/or gift cards, please don’t forget to use your Publix and Kroger shopper cards. Both stores give 1% back to the KMHS PTSA and it really adds up. If you don’t have a Publix shopper card, you can pick one up in the front office.

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!
