Attention Reading Olympics participants: All forms are due back to Ms. McGarvey this Friday.

Today we will celebrate our Students of the Month. Take a look! (VIDEO)

8th-grade students remember to hand in your $3 to your 7th-period teacher. Today we will head to the big gym to cheer on our students and faculty that are playing in the game. All the funds raised go to families from our community who are in need. See you at the gym!

Students, let’s think about the schedule for a minute. We have one more full week of school before our conference week. Make sure you have returned your signed conference confirmation sheet to your conferencing teacher. Please plan to attend your conference as you are the most important link. Then we have Thanksgiving break. The Monday we return from break is the last day of Term 3 which means progress reports come out. If you need help advocate for yourself. The building is full of great resources.

Happy Friday! It’s time for Flocabulary!

Have a Great Day KMS
