KM Perform Up-Close Event is Tonight!

KM Perform Up-Close invites the community to experience the artistic and academic work of KM Perform students. Come and enjoy musical performances, TED-style talks, and visual exhibitions on the evening of January 17th from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m.! All are welcome. Spread the word!


There is a 5:00 p.m. Information Meeting in the Band Room for prospective students and families for the 2019-20 school year.

Records Day and Student-Led Conferences

There have been a few questions about upcoming dates. We have a Records Day on January 18th and a student-led conference day on January 28th that will also double as an additional Records Day. We have implemented more accountability and intervention for students who fall behind in goals. Students who are red in multiple goals are expected to come in for one or both days. We will schedule these students in myLC. In addition, many musical students will be attending additional rehearsals during these days. We will continue to get creative with our schedules to support our students doing awesome things!


As always, our KM Perform classrooms will be open to students who wish to study and work. Many students come for the day to work on projects or receive extra help from teachers. Students are required to attend all legacy courses and arts courses on records days. It is important that students honor their commitment to any legacy or fine arts courses.
