Kulshan Clothing Closet Update

With the help of the student WE Club and the PTSA, we have created a wonderful clothing closet at school for students in need, so they can get a clean/gently used outfit if needed. Or if a child has a clothing emergency, there is an outfit on hand. If your child is in need of an outfit, please send them to the counseling office to make an appointment. Or if there is an urgent situation, the ladies in the office can help. Special thanks to all of the families and teachers who have donated to the clothing closet. If you donated, feel free to email Teddi Anshus to get a receipt for your donation. teddi@teknights.com Donations: We are short on boys spring clothing, so if you have any Boys Large, XL, Or Men’s small, medium clothes to donate it would be greatly appreciated. We are particularly looking for clean, gently used or new, no stains, active-wear (ie: shorts/tshirts) that are appropriate for students to wear to school in spring weather.

Whatcom Community College is hosting a free science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) carnival on Thursday, May 9 from 3 - 6 p.m. in the Syre Student Center.

Lost and Found Lunch Boxes

Are you missing a lunch box? If lunch boxes remain in our lunch bin over the weekend, we place them in our Lost and Found (with the jackets and sweatshirts). As you can imagine, lost lunch boxes get stinkier every day, so we encourage you to grab your lost lunch box. Thank you!
