Mahan and Fritz Newsletter

week of September 22-26

Weekly update:

This past week was a whirlwind of fun! We were thrilled to have the KHS football players visit our classrooms Friday morning. The players were so engaging and sweet to the kids. They answered questions and encouraged students to work hard in school and build great character, they even tossed the football for a bit before returning to KHS. We also had student council representative elections. Mrs. Fritzenmeier and I would like to give a "shout out" to all of the students who ran for class representative. The speeches were creative and engaging, it was obvious they put in a lot of time and effort preparing for them. We hope you had a wonderful weekend! Scroll down for more news and upcoming events.
