Dear Mustang Family, Nov 12, 2014
We are pleased to announce the formation of the Kennesaw Mountain High School Foundation. The Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting the staff and students of KMHS. Our goal is to recognize and reward excellence in teaching and learning, promote innovative instruction in the classrooms and ensure a successful educational environment for our students.
As a newly formed foundation, our mission is to support the following programs:
• Fund additional teacher allotments to reduce class size
• Fund and advocate for the expansion of academic programming including career tech programs
• Fund student and teacher recognition programs and grants
• Fund facility enhancements to create a state-of-the-art academic campus
In order to make these programs a success we need the support of our Kennesaw Mountain families, the community, businesses and alumni. Please visit our website www.kmhsfoundation.org for sponsorship opportunities. Your donations may be made online or by check sent to the school marked KMHS Foundation. All donations are tax deductible.
As a kick-off fundraiser, we are selling personalized Legacy Bricks that will be paved in the KMHS courtyard. Now through December 5th, we are offering the opportunity to purchase a personalized 4” x 8” brick for a student rate of $50 or an 8”x 8” brick for $100. Please fill out the brick form attached with your payment.
If you are interested in getting involved or have any questions, please contact Deborah Hill. You can make a difference in the education of our children and the leave a legacy at Kennesaw Mountain High School!

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.
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!!

Members of the 2015 Senior Class have offered to donate International Flags to KMHS to represent our school’s rich diversity.

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
