KMS Back To School Newsletter

2019

Welcome Back!

The 2019-2020 school year is quickly approaching! The Kilgore Middle School staff has been busy planning for the upcoming year and we are certain it will be the best yet. Our hope is that this newsletter provides you with all the information you will need to make the start of school a smooth experience. If I can assist in any way, please do not hesitate to let me know.

School Supply List for 2019-2020 School Year

Our staff has worked hard to ensure that each grade level list is under $40.00. There could be additional supplies requested throughout the school year, if needed. Please bring supplies to Meet the Teacher and divide them by out by subject area (note on the list what subject area is requesting that supply). It is often helpful to put each subject in a bag and drop off the bag in that classroom.

Did You Know?

Our Secondary Dress Code has been slightly modified for the upcoming school year. Below is an updated copy of our dress code for KMS.


Changes include, but not limited to:

*Sleveless tops and blouses are now allowed; however, no tank tops or clothing with low neckline or low underarms. Midriffs must be fully covered.

* All shorts, skirts, and dresses must be no shorter than 3" above the top of the knee when standing.

* Reminder - leggings, yoga, and form fitting pants are viewed as an accessory item and cannot be worn unless the top is no shorter than 3" above the top of the knee when standing.

Incoming 6th Grade Information

WELCOME 6th Grade Students and Parents! We recognize that the transition from elementary to middle school can create some anxiety for not only our students but parents alike. We strive to make your child's middle school years a great experience. This Summer, you should have received an invitation to attend orientation on Friday, August 9 from 9:00 - 11:00 in the KMS Gym. Please park in the back by the cafeteria and enter through the concession stand doors.

*Please note this is not a come and go event and will begin at 9:00 and last until 11:00. Our goal is for your child have their ID made, receive their schedule (if they have completed the registration process), find out about the many traditions of KMS, and have all your questions answered. See you then!
