Volunteers Needed

“I am the coach of the Kent City HS Forensics Team. My students compete in events like storytelling, poetry recitation, informative speeches, oratory, dramatic interpretation, broadcasting, and sales. We have three meets: Feb 2, Feb 16, and March 2. I need judges to attend these meets with us. The bus leaves Kent City High School at 2:05 pm so that we can arrive at the host schools by 3:05 pm. There are 3 rounds to judge, so you will be finished by 7:00 pm or so. We will give you the criteria to judge each event. Most inexperienced judges feel nervous at first, but get the hang of it quickly. You just provide students with a little written feedback and constructive criticism to help them improve their performances. Please let me know if you would be willing to help these talented students! Thanks!” — Stacy Brown stacy.brown@kentcityschools.org

Summer Scrip Changes

Attention All Parents of KCCS Students!

For the past several years the PTCO has provided a free sno-cone to each KCCS student (elementary through high school) near the end of the school year as a reward for a job “well done”! We are nearing that time again, but with the end of year busyness, we are in desperate need of additional volunteers to provide this for the kids. If we don’t have additional helpers volunteer, we are in jeopardy of not being able to do this for our students. The dates we are planning to provide the sno-cones for each of the schools are as follows:
•HS – Friday, 5/29, after the seniors graduation practice (time TBD), and during the school lunch periods (This would be a great opportunity for some parents of seniors to help out! 🙂 )
•MS – Wed, 6/3, during school lunch periods
•EL – Tues, 6/9, mostly during school lunch periods

If you are willing/able to help out any or all of these dates or have any questions, please contact Mandi Bair at honeybairs@juno.com

Fundraiser Unloading

Middle School Dance
