Our boys basketball team lost against a good Clarke team this past Friday night, 72-55. Our guys competed hard; it just wasn't our night. Here is an excerpt from an email we received this morning from a Clarke parent: "I am......a parent of one of the (Clarke) basketball boys. I wanted to commend your Boys Basketball team for what happened AFTER the game. I saw a few of them bring out garbage bags so I paid a little extra attention.....What I saw was your boys showing respect for our gym by cleaning BOTH sides of the bleachers......Please let those players and parents know it did not go unnoticed. And THANK YOU for teaching these kids a lifelong lesson of respect, doing the right thing, and lending a hand when needed. I am sure our custodians appreciated it as well."

Last Friday, KMS students earned the experience of having a hypnotist, H3 Hypnosis from Knoxville, come and put on a show for each grade level. This was such a fun way to celebrate students' hard work and success with PBIS goals. After the show, students received a message from the previous speaker, Joe Beckman. Joe kicked off the next initiative at KMS, the 10/5 rule. Any time a member of KMS, student or staff, is within 10 feet of another person, they must be acknowledged with a wave, head nod, etc. If they are within 5 feet, they must be acknowledged with a "Hello", "How are you?" etc. What a great way to kick off 2023!
