Accident Avoidance Workshops

AAW Teen Driving Quiz!

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 to back to Kennesaw Mt. High School this December 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.

The Workshops are coming to back to Kennesaw Mt. High School this December 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.

From Administration

Our first semester Open House will be Thursday, August 28th from 6:00 until 7:00 PM followed by a PTSA meeting in the Media Center at 7 PM.  To make you aware of the various interest clubs/activities we have, we will also have a Club Fair in the cafeteria from 5:30 until 7:00 PM.  Your child will bring home his/her schedule on August 27th.  We hope that you will bring the schedule to Open House because on this night, we will ask you to follow your student’s schedule from first period through fourth period.  Ten minutes will be allowed in each class, and bells will ring to indicate the end of the period.  Each teacher will have a short presentation that will inform you about the curriculum of the course and the teacher’s expectations. 

Unfortunately in a high school, we typically have numerous extra-curricular activities that take place each evening so we have several teams that have games or competitions on August 28th.  Some of our coaches will, therefore, not be present at Open House; these coaches include: Corey Goldstein, Cindy Faulkner, Lisa Chapman, Jimmy Whittemore, Eric Blair, Dana Rogers, Lexi Bultman, Holly Thomas, Danielle Weaver, Brittany Betten, Andy Scott, Jeff Bettis, Chris Walker, Wade Stewart, Mike Candela, Steve Keuls, and Mike Pfeister.  Additionally, Dr. Gammill and Dr. Jezequel teach classes at KSU and will not be at KMHS for Open House.  If your child is in one of these teachers’ classes and you have questions or concerns, please email the teacher for more information about his/her class. 

We look forward to seeing you at Open House!

For the safety of all of our students and staff, we would like to remind parents not to drop off students on Kennesaw Due West Rd. on the hill leading into the school, or in the faculty parking lot. We prefer that you drop them off at the curb on the side of the building where the staff parking lot is. Also, please do not stop your vehicle on the crosswalks.

We really appreciate your cooperation. It’s been a great start to our year and we thank you all for your support.

Mustang Way / Freshman Orientation

The transition from 8th to 9th grade can be difficult for many students who graduate from middle to high school. In the ninth grade students are confronted with a new environment, rules, an exciting culture, and accountability. Course requirements are complex and demanding. The campus is challenging to navigate.  Suddenly the student is the youngest kid on the block.

The transition to a new school can be frustrating and overwhelming for the student.  Students are unsure of the expectations of the school, the teachers, and the students.  This frustration translate into lost opportunity of building a strong GPA from day one.  

Here are a few recommendations to help your 9th grade students adjust to high school.

- Have your ninth grader attend MUSTANG WAY!   The Mustang Way is a great way to learn about our school.  This is a half-day seminar presented by our student leaders about the expectations of the school, the teachers, and the student body.   This is your opportunity to talk with current students and ask questions to get ready for the best time of your life.  This program is for students only and has had a positive influence on previous freshmen adjusting to high school.   E-mail William.richardson@cobbk12 to sign up or ask questions. 

- Parents and students attend FRESHMAN orientation on July 31 from 10 am to 11:30 am.  Students will get their schedule and meet their teachers.   Students can pick up their books and the Parents can join PTSA, meet coaches and the Administrators, get information on how to get information on your students classwork, homework, monitor grades, and investigate ways to get involved in the school. 

- Freshman walk is on the 3rd of August from 2 to 4 pm.   This is the last opportunity for you and your freshman to walk the school before school starts on August 4th.   Teachers will not be here but the student government will be here to answer questions and assist your freshman to find the best way to get to each class. 

Students who participate in these events are familiar with the school and the expectations and start their high school life excited and calm.

Summer Reading Requirement

The Kennesaw Mountain High School English department believes that reading is an important activity that should not end when school is dismissed in May. To that end, we ask all students to read at least one book before taking their next English class and to complete an assignment while reading it or after starting the new semester, depending on the requirement for the specific English class. Assignments are typically due within a few days of the beginning of the semester in which students take English.

Please click here: https://sites.google.com/site/kmhssummerreading/home to find out what book(s) you should read in order to be prepared and to begin your semester successfully. Reviews on Amazon.com provide a good overview if you are wondering what the various books are about–but beware of spoilers!

Fall AP Calculus Students

 

If you are currently registered for Advanced Placement Calculus AB next fall, we in the Mathematics Department look forward to working with you.  Our AP programs have been successful in the past and continue to grow from year to year – a reflection of the dedication and efforts of our students.

 

To aid in the continued success of the program, a packet has been created containing several exercises of prerequisite skills.  During the summer break, please work the problems and write your final responses on the answer sheets provided.  This packet should be completed before the fall semester, and you do need to bring it with you to class on the first day of school.  You can download and print the packet by visiting http://kmhs.typepad.com/stockton/ or http://mrsmorlanmath.com .

 

It is quite possible that some of the exercises in the packet will have “escaped” you.  There are many resources available to help in reviewing such forgotten concepts – the Internet, review software and books available at most media stores, etc.  You might also try getting together a couple of times with your calculus classmates to work on a few tough exercises.

 

If you need any further information now or during the summer, email Dr. Stockton at james.stockton@cobbk12.org or Mrs. Morlan at susan.morlan@cobbk12.org .

 

Thank you in advance for your time this summer to make next semester easier and more productive for all involved.  We should have a great semester, and we in the department are certainly looking forward to begin working with all of you.

 

Have a great summer!

Dr. Stockton and Mrs. Morlan
