Senior Night - June 7

Thank you to everyone who has made a donation to support the Class of 2019’s Senior Night! This free event wouldn’t be possible without your help! If you haven’t made a donation there is still time. Donations of gift certificates, services, event tickets, and merchandise can be dropped off at the KMHS front office and will be used for prizes. Cash donations are used to cover the additional cost of prizes, food, and entertainment. You can make a monetary donation via Infinite Campus. Parent volunteers are needed for the night of the event - watch for a SignUp Genius coming soon.


We need your 2019 senior’s digital pictures!

Please send up to 10 digital pictures of your son or daughter from kindergarten through present so we can compile them into a video slideshow that will run in the cafeteria throughout the evening. Please submit photos to: bit.ly/2019KM.


Student Pick Up and Drop Off

Please be aware of the signage in front of the high school. Fire Lane: No Parking, No Stopping, No Standing. Violators will be ticketed. Student drop off before school should occur on the north side of the campus or in the front of the school (only before 7:00am) and pick up after school should only occur on the north side of the building. The front drive is designated for buses only after 7am and after school, and parents should not be using the student parking lot for picking up or dropping off their students. Thank you for your understanding and we appreciate your cooperation.

ACT Test Prep Information

KM will offer another Wisconsin Test Prep session in the Spring. The 7-week class will run on Wednesdays from April 24 - May 29, 7-9 p.m. Please go to www.wisconsintestprep.com or stop in the counseling center for registration information. Click here for additional ACT and/or SAT test prep opportunities.


AP Exam Information

AP exams begin Monday, May 6, and run through May 17. Students should arrive 15 minutes prior to the exam they are taking. All parents and students should review the Bulletin for AP Students and Parents 2018-19 prior to AP exams. The bulletin was given to students when they turned in their registration form. Additional copies can be picked up in the Counseling Center or accessed online. This bulletin contains important information about the exams, including the policies and procedures for exam administration and security that help ensure a fair and uniform testing experience for all students taking exams. On exam day, students will be asked to sign a statement on their answer sheet indicating they have read the Bulletin for AP Students and Parents and understand and agree to the policies and procedures in this publication.


Students are not guaranteed to be finished with exams in time for lunch, to catch buses or to attend after school activities. Therefore, students are encouraged to bring a bag lunch, beverage, arrange for transportation and/or notify advisers or coaches that they may be late. No student can be released early from any AP exam per College Board policy. Scores will be available to students online in early July.


ACT Reports

In the coming weeks (3-8 weeks from the test date) a paper copy of your ACT results will be coming to the address listed on the ACT pre-test paperwork. Some students have already received their results due to the fact that ACT releases the results in bundles BY SCHOOLS as they are scored. Additionally, if students utilized the make up date and/or had testing accommodations, those tests results will be delivered later than results from the February 20th test.


"Using Your ACT Results" is a helpful document. This guide will help you understand what your results mean and the possible next steps for you.
