On Friday, Mrs. Loeding's class gave one final presentation on their class pet Hiccup, a bearded dragon. Parents were invited into the school to listen to the presentation. These students have done such a great job researching and presenting on Hiccup!
Joe Beckman came to speak to KMS students on Tuesday morning. Joe talked about the choices we make every day and making connections with the people we interact with. He also talked about being a Difference Maker, and that you can't change the world in a day, but you can change one person's day. We encourage families to talk to their students about what it means to them to be a Difference Maker at home and at school. Also, big thank you to Your Life Matters for sponsoring Joe Beckman's speech to our students!

That's a wrap for 2022 Middle School Mock Trial. We were among the 32 teams the last two days at the Iowa State Tournament. We didn't place where we would have liked, but the learning and fun were priceless. These kids have grown and learned so much in the last 3 months; it always amazes me. The future looks bright for KHS Mock Trial with these students on the rise. Special shout out to 7th grader, Bale Pracher, our All-State Outstanding Attorney. Thanks to the parents for supporting this program, especially those who attended, provided breakfast, snacks, ran errands, hauled our stuff, food and kids around. You made my life easier this week and I appreciate you all. As always, I can't thank Ed Bull enough for donating his time and talent with us.
