A special thanks goes to Jim Dawson and the staff at Mountain View Elementary School, who have given of their time to make the sixth-grade transition a smooth process. As a cooperative effort, the student orientation process has been a positive and informative experience for all involved. KMS students will be able to pick up their 2003-04 class schedules during fall registration Aug. 15.
Yearbooks will be delivered to KMS soon. Forty extra yearbooks are available to purchase. The cost is $25. To reserve a copy, call 283-4896 or stop by the school.
Several of Mr. Tobin's sixth-grade Quest students participated in the district Mathlete competition in Seward on May 1. This is a competition that focuses on cooperative team problem solving in math, as well as quick response solutions and a third phase that involves the solution to a large scale community-type problem (payroll). One team, consisting of Molly Watkins, Catherine Hoisington and Kristi Louthan, competed. The other team of Alex Sonnichson, Brian Denesen and Bryce Boyce also competed and took first place overall for the district competition. This team also took first place in teamwork. Both teams combined to win the "Outstanding School Award" with the highest average scores for all events. Congratulations to all the students who participated.
