Kennesaw Mountain Lady Mustangs Basketball

January 16, 2015

 

Dear Mustang Family,

As our respective seasons begin to wind into the final month, I wanted to take an opportunity to reach out to the parents and players of our future Lady Mustangs regarding the off-season.  In Cobb County and Region 4-AAAAAA, we are blessed to compete against some of the top players and teams in the state on a nightly basis.  With that comes great opportunity, but also the necessity to put in appropriate work to prepare ourselves to compete at a high level.  In this letter, I would like to outline a few upcoming opportunities that could benefit our youth players in preparing to help on the high school level in the future.

My goal would be for every player in our Lady Mustang program, from high school all the way down, to play basketball on a regular basis throughout the year.  With this in mind, I strongly encourage all players to find an AAU/YBOA team that they can participate on.  We have a number of AAU/YBOA teams in the Cobb County area that offer teams each Spring.  Players can typically play somewhere between 30-40 games in an AAU/YBOA season as well as  getting regular practices and other opportunities to develop their skills in the process.  Taken from a long term view, these additional basketball experiences allow for tremendous off-season growth for players of all ages and I strongly encourage any player planning to play in high school to begin playing on the AAU/YBOA circuit as early as they can.  If you need any help finding a team, you are welcome to contact me or any of the coaches on my staff to help point you in the best direction.

I also understand that not everyone is able to fit an AAU/YBOA team into their schedule and/or budget, so this Spring we will be offering our first year of Lady Mustang Skill Development Clinics.  Starting on Tuesday, March 3rd, we will be leading skill development sessions for any interested girls, grades 1-8.  Our sessions will be every Tuesday and Thursday from March 3-May 15 (with the exception of the week of Spring Break), running from 6:30-8:00 pm.  The clinics will be broken up into two segments, an hour devoted to skill development and thirty minutes for playing in pick-up style games to gain game experience.  The cost will be $150 per player and I will lead each clinic, assisted as needed by my assistant coaches, current and former high school players, and/or other basketball community representatives.

Overall, these clinics offer a great opportunity for me to work with and get to know our future players as well as for individual players to develop their basketball skills and make new friendships.  On the back of this letter you will find a flyer with our full schedule for the clinics and additional information about how they will run.  If you are planning to sign up, it would be a great help to pre-register (form attached) or shoot me an email to let me know you plan to come (jeffrey.mayr@cobbk12.org) so that I can figure out how much help I will need running the clinics.  We will also happily take walk-up registrations at the door on March 3rd if that option works best for you.

I look forward to working with each of you, and please let me know if there is any way I can be of assistance in helping our future Lady Mustangs prepare for their high school basketball experience.

Best Regards,

Jeff Mayr

Accident Avoidance Workshops

Driver trainin’ the way it ought’a be!

Question: If there was a captivating program you could attend with your student, that would reduce the likelihood of them being involved in an accident by more than 75%, would you attend?  And if so, how much would that be worth to you?  How does less than ½ of your insurance deductible sound?

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 Workshops are coming to 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.

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.

From the Administration

Dear Parents:

Kennesaw Mountain High School will be participating in credit extension through remediation for students who did not pass one of the following classes during the Fall 2014 Semester:  9th Grade Literature/Comp., American Literature/Comp., CCGPS Coordinate Algebra, Advanced Algebra, CCGPS Geometry, Biology, US History, and Economics.  These courses are EOC courses and are required for graduation.  The school district is allowing up to two weeks of remediation and credit extension to help students stay on track for graduation.  Please read the statements below for important information regarding our credit extension program:

  • All classes will be delivered via the Novanet program.  There will be no direct instruction although teachers will be available to assist students with question during class.
  • Classes will take place from 3:45 p.m. until 5:30 p.m., Monday-Friday in Room 217 and 219.
  • Students with a class average of 65%-69% may be placed in this two-week course, beginning Jan 12th and ending Jan 23rd.
  • Nova NET can be accessed at home.  Students are encouraged to work at home and bring questions to class.
  • Students will be allowed to do credit repair in only one course.
  • There is no charge for these classes.
  • Students and parents will sign a contract to receive this opportunity.
  • Students must be in attendance every day with no exception.  One absence will remove a student from the program.  There will be a strict tardy policy as well.
  • Once a student has mastered the skills to reach a 70% average in the course, he/she will be finished with the remediation class and will not be required to attend the remaining days.  For example, if a student has a 69 average in the class, it probably won’t take as long to master the skills needed as a student who has a 65 average in the class.
  • Parents or students must provide their own transportation.
  • Applications must be turned in by January 9th at 3:30 PM.  Applications are to be turned into Admin 1.

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.

Sign up now for the next Accident Avoidance Workshop at KMHS.  The classroom session is on Wednesday, June 10th.  The driving portion is Saturday, June 13th or Sunday, June 14th.  This driving class is very popular and could fill up quickly.  Reserve your spot now!

The December 26th Accident Avoidance Workshop at KMHS is sold out!  You are welcome to check with them to see if there are any cancellations closer to the date.

Shop with a Mustang —— “Character Counts”

This year the KMHS student Body has sponsored 224 future Mustangs for Christmas. Our Christmas kids will get a Mustang Hoodie, a Hundred dollars in clothes, an opportunity to buy gifts for mom and dad at Santa’s workshop, a pancake Breakfast and a pizza lunch.In total we will spend $175.00 per child.

Here are some of the things our student leaders have done to raise money. Some have made pies and sold them for Thanksgiving in their neighborhoods. Some gave speeches during their Thanksgiving meal to their friends, neighbors, and relatives about the true meaning of Christmas and walked away with donations in the hundreds.  Some told their parents they wanted the money that their parents were going to spend on them for Christmas to donate that money to Shop with a Mustang. Others have worked since August on various fundraising projects  to support the program. We have had students donate money during classes and at lunch. We have parents writing multiple checks and excited about what our students are doing. In all our Mustang Nation raised over $38,000.

Our character education program stresses Martin Luther King’s quote, “Intelligence plus character that is the true goal of education.” Our Shop with a Mustang program is the application of our character education program. We have 656 KMHS mentors ready to take our young Mustangs Christmas shopping this Saturday, 13 December 2014.

We have amazing students making a positive impact on our community. On Behalf of Mane Link and our students we want to thank all the parents and business leaders that devote so much time developing the future leaders of America. Our future is bright with our Mustangs.

 

PTSA

On behalf of KMHS PTSA we would like to welcome our new principal Dr. Mark Trachtenbroit.  We are looking forward to getting to know Dr. Trachtenbroit in the upcoming months.  I know everyone will join us in making him feel welcome at the Mountain!

————————————————-

The PTSA Community Outreach Committee is working with Ms. Bethany Miller, KMHS Social Worker, to coordinate a “Sponsor -a- KMHS Family at Christmas” initiative.   SO FAR, WE HAVE HAD VERY LOW SPONSOR SUPPORT.  WE NEED YOU!

If you would like to sponsor a family, please contact Dr. Robin Saunders (columbiarobin@yahoo.com). She will provide you with the gender, age, and size of the family member you will be paired to sponsor, along with the necessary delivery instructions.  Please contact her by December 12th.  Thank you for your CONTINUED support!

Join us at Peace Love and Pizza on Tuesday, December 16th for KMHS Night!  PTSA will receive a percentage of all purchases made from 3:30 to 10:00 that night.  This includes dine in, carryout or delivery.  All you have to do is order and tell them you are from Kennesaw Mountain High.

Peace Love and Pizza is located at 3960 Mary Eliza Trace in Marietta.  The delivery phone number is  770-321-5000. Come for dinner, stop by before the game or have it delivered to your home, it’s that easy.  Hope to see you there!

—————————————————-

Did you know that you can support the KMHS PTSA simply by going to the grocery store?  

You don’t have to buy any special products.  Here’s all you need to do…

Publix shoppers should present their Publix Partners card to the cashier before she/he finishes ringing up your groceries and/or prescriptions.  The cashier will scan the card and approximately 1% of your total grocery bill will go back to the school.  That may not seem like much, but if every KMHS family who shops at Publix uses it every time, it will add up quickly.  If you don’t already have a Publix card, you can pick one up in the front office at the school.  Anyone can support the KMHS PTSA – parents, grandparents, friends, neighbors – so pick up an extra card and pass it on.  The card will scan at ANY Publix store in Georgia and the funds will come back to our school.

Kroger shoppers should enroll their Kroger Plus card in the KMHS PTSA Rewards program.  Simply go to “MY ACCOUNT” at www.kroger.com to assign KMHS PTSA for this school year. Use School Code 14689.  Not A Kroger Plus Card Member? Go to www.kroger.com and Register.  Please Enroll KMHS PTSA with school code 14689 after registering for a rewards card.  After you’ve enrolled in the program, use your card every time you shop at Kroger and the funds will come back to the school.

 

Yearbook

The yearbook is $85.00 from October 13th- February 1st and the

price will increase to $100.00 on February 2nd until the end of the school year.

It’s going to be an amazing book! We will not be ordering many extras, so make sure to put your order in ASAP!!

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.

Sign up now for the next Accident Avoidance Workshop at KMHS.  The classroom session is on Wednesday, June 10th.  The driving portion is Saturday, June 13th or Sunday, June 14th.  This driving class is very popular and could fill up quickly.  Reserve your spot now!

From Dr. Daniel’s Office

On December 10, 2014, the Cobb County School Board will select the next principal for Kennesaw Mountain High School.  I will remain through the end of the semester to assist with the transition of the new principal before officially leaving to become the Cobb County School District Area 2 Assistant Superintendent. I want to let you know how much my family and I have enjoyed being a part of this wonderful school and community.  Words cannot describe how much I have enjoyed being the principal here for the past eight years.  It has truly been a pleasure getting to know you and working with you for the benefit of our students. I am very grateful to the Kennesaw Mountain students, staff, parents, and community members for their consistent dedication to pursuing excellence in academics, athletics, fine arts, extracurricular programs, and community service. Although there eventually comes a time for each of us to leave this great school, we will always be connected by our time at the Mountain. I am reminded about a statement I make each year at graduation, “Once a Mustang, always a Mustang.”

Thanks so much for the great memories. I look forward to hearing about the future successes and accomplishments of our Mustangs. See you around town.

Go Mustangs!

Kevin

It’s not too late to purchase a PTSA membership.  Each membership is $8.00 and we accept cash or check.  Forms can be found at PTSA  Membership Form 2014-2015.   Forms and payment can be given to your student’s homeroom teacher or dropped off at the front office. Thank you for your support!

 

Recycle and Donate your Electronics

Please donate used electronics! Mustangs are recycling used electronics to raise funds to help with emergency student needs from Kennesaw Mountain High School.  We will collect cell phones, laser and inkjet cartridges, iPods, video games & consoles, scientific and graphing calculators, DVDs and GPS devices, PDAs, digital cameras and laptops to raise money for students whose utilities have been shut off or are experiencing other emergencies that would impact their ability to attend and succeed in school.  A collection box will be set up in the front office throughout the school year.  Please see Mrs. Miller, the School Social Worker, to donate larger items like laptops and tablets.

 

Support KMHS PTSA

Publix shoppers should present their Publix Partners card to the cashier before she/he finishes ringing up your groceries and/or prescriptions.  The cashier will scan the card and approximately 1% of your total grocery bill will go back to the school.  That may not seem like much, but if every KMHS family who shops at Publix uses it every time, it will add up quickly.  If you don’t already have a Publix card, you can pick one up in the front office at the school.  Anyone can support the KMHS PTSA – parents, grandparents, friends, neighbors – so pick up an extra card and pass it on.  The card will scan at ANY Publix store in Georgia and the funds will come back to our school.

Kroger shoppers should enroll their Kroger Plus card in the KMHS PTSA Rewards program.  Simply go to “MY ACCOUNT” at www.kroger.com to assign KMHS PTSA for this school year. Use School Code 14689.  Not A Kroger Plus Card Member? Go to www.kroger.com and Register.  Please Enroll KMHS PTSA with school code 14689 after registering for a rewards card.  After you’ve enrolled in the program, use your card every time you shop at Kroger and the funds will come back to the school.

Yearbook

The yearbook is $85.00 from October 13th- February 1st and the price will increase to $100.00 on February 2nd until the end of the school year.

It’s going to be an amazing book! We will not be ordering many extras, so make sure to put your order in ASAP!!

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 to back to Kennesaw Mt. High School this December and spaces will go quick! Click here

<http://accidentavoidanceworkshops.org/pta/invite/KennesawMt_14.12.26.pdf> for more information and for a complete schedule, or call 770-262-7009.  If you are ready to register you may click here
