Orchestra Festival

The Kuna Middle School Orchestra students attended the DIII Orchestra Festival last week. This was the first time any of these students have participated in the festival, after a two year break due to Covid. KMS Orchestras are looking forward to bringing back this tradition!


This is the first time in at least seven years that KMS Orchestras have earned a superior rating at the festival. The last documented superior rating was in 2010. KMS is so proud of the Orchestras and their growth over the years! Also a huge congratulations to Mrs. Whitmore for orchestrating such amazing performances this year!

Ecosystem Model Projects

Team Onyx 7th grade science students showed up in a big way with their projects this week! They were given the task of creating a model of an ecosystem, which included a scene, a food web, a fact sheet, an informational cube, and an artifact. The creativity and attention to detail was amazing! Many students hand made artifacts, including this panther made from paper. Mrs. Palmer couldn’t be more proud! These students are talented. A special thanks to all the parents and guardians for their assistance and encouragement, we couldn’t do it without you!

Dungeons and Dragons Club

The new Dungeons and Dragons (D & D) club at Kuna Middle School is a great hit! There are approximately 20 participants and six different table groups running games. Anyone is welcome to join! We have dungeon masters with experience helping brand new players, including Ms. Doremus. The club meets after school on Wednesdays from 2:21-3:30. Students need to be picked up promptly at 3:30.


"I think it's important that kids use their imaginations and practice story-telling instead of always playing video games," says Mrs. O'Dell, one of the teacher leaders of the group. Mrs. Peterson has also volunteered to be a teacher member on occasion.


"I think that this club has more enthusiasm and passion than any other club that I have seen!" says Ms. Doremus. She doesn't have as much experience as some of the players, but she does really see a great sense of community with these gamers.
