The 7th grade field hockey team beat Penns Grove 4-0 yesterday.  Peyton Hunt and Jordyn Mannices each had 2 goals and two assists.  Ainsley Albert and Rachael Kreicker each added an assist.  The defense continued their solid play, helping Allie Hodges earn her 5th shut-out.

The 8th grade field hockey team played an exciting, fast paced game at Legacy Field Thursday.  Sydney Thureen scored a goal to start off the game.  The offense was a power house, keeping the ball in the scoring zone the first half of the game.  Defense cleared the circle while Claire Borman played her best game of the season in goal.

Come cheer on the team at their last home game at Legacy Field on Tuesday, October 28

Mr. Carr’s Corner…

Success
BESSIE STANLEY
To laugh often and much;
To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.
This is to have succeeded.


Absence, Early Dismissal, Late Arrival procedures

The following is the procedure for absences, early dismissals and late arrivals at KMS.

Absences
If your child is absent on a given day, please call the school, (610) 268 5878, to notify us. Additionally, a note MUST be sent in upon your child’s return to school; without the note, your child’s absence will be considered unexcused.

Early Dismissals
If you know you will be picking your child up during school hours, please send a note in with your child on that day stating the time they are to be dismissed from class. The school will issue your child a pass to come to the office at that time. You must come into the Main Office to sign your child out.

Late Arrivals - In the event your child will be late to school, your child MUST sign in with the Attendance Secretary, located in the Guidance Office.  Please send your child in with a note stating the reason for their tardiness. Pick ups AFTER the school day - If you choose to pick your child up after the school day, the arrangement is between you and your child.  KMS does not need a note for after school pick ups.

For more details on the above items, please refer to the Student Handbook that was sent home with your child.
