Bucket Drummers to perform at Retired Teacher's Luncheon

On February 3rd the Bucket Drummers will perform at the KISD Retired Teachers Luncheon. Permission forms are due to Mrs. Masters ASAP. Students need to wear their 2015 KHES shirt and jeans. We will be off campus for approximately 1 hour.

The KISD School Walk for Diabetes will be held on April 2, 2016

In preparation for this, the P.E. dept is starting a fundraiser selling Paper Diabetic Shoes. The sale will start Monday Feb 8 and “RUN” through Friday, February 26th. Each shoe requires a $1.00 donation.

This year, the teacher whose class (per grade level) with the most shoes purchased will be allowed the opportunity to put a pie in the face of: Mrs. Eriksen, Mrs. Evans, Mr. Smith, Mrs. Shipp or Nurse Rhonda. Names will be drawn for this event. Also, the student, per grade level, who donates the most money towards buying paper shoes will be given the opportunity to “pie” their choice of the above mentioned names.

We thank you in advance for all of your help and support.

How Do You Make a Teacher Smile? CHOCOLATE!

Our teachers LOVE CHOCOLATE & Jean's Passes! If you would like to donate bags of miniature candies like Reese's, Twix, M&M's, etc. just drop them off in the front office. Mrs. Eriksen keeps a bucket of chocolate in her office everyday specifically to make the entire staff SMILE.

Thank you to for the donations so far!! We've seen many, many smiles!!
