McCord Students of the Month

No better way to begin our day than to recognize these students who have been nominated by their teachers for Student of the Month. I want to thank our McCord PTA for providing the food & drinks for our students and their families. Also, a huge thank you to Mrs. Kirsten & Mrs. Gibson for organizing the recognition ceremony.

Hello 8th Grade Families,

Worthington Kilbourne High School is excitedly anticipating your student joining us next school year. During the month of January there will be two welcoming events for current 8th graders from McCord, Perry, and Phoenix Middle Schools.

On January 18th, we will be welcoming 8th grade students for elective course presentations and a building tour. This will take place during the school day.

On the evening of January 25th, we will hold Transition & Curriculum Night from 7:00-8:45 at WKHS. Our Transition & Curriculum Night gives parents and students the opportunity to receive first-hand information about the courses and programs offered at the high school level.

More information will be forthcoming in January. We wanted you to be able to save the date before the new year.

PACK Behavior Expectations

We wanted to review our PACK expectations for students now that we are well into the second quarter of the school year. Our students have done a great job but it is always good to keep our expectations front and center. We expect students to display these traits in all areas of our building, on the athletic fields, courts and mats and most importantly in the community and at home. Our assist teachers will be reviewing these with our students prior to holiday break. It would be great if you (parents) can review these with your student at home.

P - practice respect

A - act responsibly

C - choose to be involved

K - kindness to others
