PBIS Videos from Media I Students
As part of the District Positive Behavior Intervention and Support program (PBIS), the high school is promoting the characteristics of a model KHS student: Hard working, Open-minded, Respectful, Noble, Engaged and Trustworthy (HORNET). Recently, our Media I class produced some awesome silent movies. In these scenes, students are showing what to do (and sometimes NOT to do) to be a HORNET at KHS. Please click here (for Playlist 1) or here (for Playlist 2) to check out their creations. Also, a special thank you is extended to the Media I teacher, Mr. Brian Harvey, and his students for their work on this video project.

Class Rank Meeting Follow-up
Thanks to the parents who came out last night to the KMS/KHS discussion on class rank. If you were unable to attend, please check out the Power Point presentation posted further down on this page.
Parent Meeting to Discuss Class Rank at KHS
At KHS, we have been discussing changing the way student performance is reported via the student's final transcript, particularly, removing class rank (the practice of ordering seniors by their cumulative GPA and reporting this rank to colleges). If such a change were to occur, it would be implemented so that current KHS students would not be affected.

You are invited to be part of a conversation about class rank on Thursday, January 14th from 6:00-6:45 PM in the Forum. Talking points will include:
  • What is class rank, and how is it calculated?
  • How does it impact students in the college admission process?
  • How does ranking affect kids?
  • What are current trends in how schools are dealing with ranking and why?
  • What are the things we are talking about at KHS?
Mod Block and Delayed Start Commence
As promised last year, we began the school year using only the typical 50-minute period schedule for grades 6-12. Now, it is time to commence with the weekly mod block that was rolled out last year. Beginning September 2nd, your grades 6-12 students will follow the mod block schedule (see mod block schedule grid on the KHS web page or in your email) every Wednesday and Thursday for the rest of the year.

It is important to note that Thursdays will be delayed start days. This means that if a parent is willing to provide their own transportation, any student in grades 6-12 does not have to arrive at school until 8:45 or so with class (block period 2) beginning at 8:57. Teachers will still report at usual times for professional development meetings those mornings. Students who come to school at the usual time are to report to the cafeteria, where, like last year, they will be directed to study and collaborate on school work, projects and independent reading activities.

The mod block Wed-Thur schedule will be reviewed with your students again at the beginning of the week, prior to it commencing on Wednesday. Please look the attachment over and talk to your child Monday night. If questions still exist, please call your principal so things can be clarified. Again, t is important ot note that if your child plans on taking advantage of delayed start Thursdays, transportation is the responsibility of the parent. Otherwise, buses will run usual routes and times.
