Today marks the 18th anniversary of the September 11th attacks. While all of our current KMS students were born after the attacks, it is important for us all to understand what this date truly means. Many of the KMS staff member have a detailed account of that day seared into their memories. September 11, 2001 was a turning point for each of us just as it was for the nation and the world as a whole. So, today, be sure to ask the adults around you about their memories from that day and about what this day means so that we collectively ensure that: we will never forget.
