Making Memories in Washington, DC
Thank you so much to KHS Social Studies Teacher Scott Schuster for coordinating another awesome Washington, DC trip for our sophomores! There were many stops on the trip, including the White House, Capital Building, Supreme Court, Arlington National Cemetery, and the MLK, FDR, Vietnam, Korean, WWII, and Lincoln Memorials. Students also visited the Holocaust, Smithsonian, and Marine Corps Museum in addition to attending a play at the Kennedy Performing Arts Center and traveling to Mount Vernon. Special thanks again to Scott Schuster and chaperones Shannon Heffernan, Tracy Abfall, Michelle Compton, and Bruce Broad.
Celebrating Our Nation's Veterans
In honor of Veteran's Day, fifth graders hosted the annual Veteran's Day performance. During the performance, Mrs. Paulchell's fifth graders performed numerous songs, including the Star Spangled Banner, America the Beautiful, and more. United States Air Force Veteran Sergeant Timothy Gress also spoke at the assembly. We cannot express our gratitude for all those who have served and who presently are serving with United States Armed Forces.
Congratulations Michael Gale!
