Kuna Middle School

Weekly News - August 29-September 2, 2022


Kuna Middle School and Fremont Middle School will be releasing at 2:15 beginning Tuesday, September 6th. This will last the remainder of the year.

The purpose of the new release time is to allow the buses additional time to get to the elementary schools in time for dismissal.

A Letter from Admin

KMS Families,

It has been a great start to the school year. We have some new changes that have been really setting us up for success. If you don't follow us on Facebook, please go follow us. We will be posting photos often and other fun updates. Just a few reminders:

  • Please remind your student about the dress code. The purpose of the dress code is to encourage students to "dress for success" and come to school properly prepared for participating in the educational process. We really appreciate everyone's support on this.
  • WIN (What I Need) time, which happens every day, except Wednesday, is an opportunity for students to get the extra support they need in math or language arts. This extra support of WIN time will give the students more opportunities to be successful in all classes.

This year, we would love to see our families here in our building and become a part of this amazing community we have built. You can volunteer by helping with lunch duty, crosswalk duty, being a part of our PTO, coming to our Parent Advisory Committee meetings, or finding a way to be involved. Please just make sure you have filled out the volunteer application before coming in.

KMS students, Zane Hoagland, Peyton Martin, Alex Toothman, Landin Toothman and their families took time to rake the entire football field and collected more than 20 bags of grass clippings. Thanks to these rock stars and their families, the football field looked amazing for their first home game!

KMS is thrilled to welcome Mrs. Mathias to the AVID classroom! She was previously a paraprofessional in the KMS 8th grade resource room and earned her teaching degree this summer. Mrs. Mathias has been working with students since she was 16 years old. She taught preschool for 12 years and has a love for her pets: dogs, cats, and tortoise! One of Mrs. Mathias' favorite past times is to road trip around Idaho and Oregon and spend time with her family.

Historians in Action!

Students in Mrs. Kay's history class practiced analyzing primary documents. They had to piece together the story of her life based on documents, letters, yearbooks, and pictures. These historians are off to a GREAT start! They now know all about her without her even saying a word!

KMS Band Information

The members of the KMS Beginning Band are having a great time learning about the instruments and have just begun to make a lot of noise in room 41! All students need to make sure they have their band instruments, books and accessories by Tuesday so we can really get started in the book and learn how to play. If you have a student in the beginning band class and are not able to get them an instrument, please contact Mrs. Peterson at apeterson@kunaschools.org. All the information the students were given about getting their instrument and supplies is also in a folder in Schoology. Thank you for supporting your KMS musicians!
