Shady Grove Six Flags Performance!

Keller High School "Love Luggage" Project

The "Love Luggage" project is a service project sponsored by the Art Club and National Honor Society at Keller High School.

When asked about the history of the project, art instructor Kristy Laurent said, "The Love Luggage Project has been going on…forever, as far as I know. Each year, students spend the fall semester painting tote bags with designs for children. We collect children's books, art supplies, candy, and stuffed toys. Then, at our last meeting of the year, we have a party! We call it the Love Luggage Stuffing party, and we spend about an hour in an assembly line, assembling the bags with the supplies and a little note wishing the kids a happy holiday. After the party, we'll deliver the bags to a shelter collection site (we're going to the Community Storehouse for the first time this year). It's one of our favorite projects!"

This year Keller High School will donate over 80 bags to the Community Storehouse!

Region 2 All-Region Band Results

UIL Region 2 conducted auditions for both the high school and the freshman All-Region Bands last week. Students placing at the top of the region band were also selected to audition at the area round this January, for a chance to participate in the Texas All State Band in San Antonio this February.
