News and notes from the KPS Guidance Department
A December to Remember
What a month this has been! While we have pivoted (a few times) between hybrid and remote instruction, our outstanding faculty have not missed a beat. Our guidance team has been hard at work shepherding students through the college application process and providing families in the community with things they may need for the winter holidays.
Being an educator is such a giving profession. Our faculty at KHS and KCS give, give, and give all day long. At home, in school, and even after school hours. I wanted to take just a quick moment to acknowledge how much they GIVE to all. I am totally grateful.
