Student Government Applications

Practice your servant leadership skills by serving in student leadership.  Applications are now available for the 2014 – 2015 school year.  The elections process is different at KMS to reduce the likelihood of popularity voting.  Therefore, students are not allowed to campaign by distributing lollipops or creating posters.  The elections process is comprised of several components – an essay, interview, teacher rating and anonymous class voting.  We seek parental support in the process too.  If you are interested in serving your school, class and the community, please download a form.  Essays are due to Mrs. Vannatta by April 23 at 8:00am.  Please review the other components and their specific due dates on the form.  We look forward to a successful school year.  ’14-’15 Spring Elections Form

Mr. Atabay’s updates

Aloha parents!

Just a few reminders:

1) We are at mid-quarter.  Please check KS Connect as it should help you understand where your child stands academically at this point in the quarter.

2) We’ve recently had incidents of broken glass as children have brought glass containers to school and it’s dropped on the ground.  This creates an unsafe environment for all and I’ve asked students NOT to bring glass containers to school.

3) We’ve heard from KES that some of our students are hanging around their campus during after-school hours.  Unless authorized to be there, KMS students should never be at KES, especially after-school hours.  Although we have a number of students remaining at MS campus during after-school hours, our handbook states,  “If he or she is not part of the KS bus transportation program, please make arrangements to pick your child up by the end of the school day at the School Street Bus Terminal.  After school supervision is not provided” (p. 22).

Mahalo for your cooperation!

Mr. Atabay
