We are very excited to announce to you that next week is our first annual kindness week! Kindness week is an easy, fun way to spread positivity and good vibes to people all around you! We have a spirit week planned and a week-long activity that everyone at K-M can participate in! Every day next week will have a “dare” assigned to the staff and student body that helps show more kindness around K-M. If you are spotted by “spies” looking for these dares being completed, you can potentially be rewarded! Also, each day of kindness week has a color assigned with it. Show your school spirit and wear the color that corresponds with the day of the week!
If you are a Running Start 11th grade student, you are required to take: • the mathematics Smarter Balanced Assessment • the ELA Smarter Balanced Assessment (if you didn’t score a level 3 or 4 last year when you took it in 10th grade) Follow the link to learn more.
K-M Drama is presenting Rodgers and Hammerstein’s classic fairy tale, Cinderella on May 5,6,12,13 and 14th. All shows begin at 7pm except on May 14th, which is a 2pm matinee. All seats are $10 and are available for advance purchase from the school cashier or at the door an hour prior to curtain.
Summer school is right around the corner. If you believe that you need credit recovery to graduate on time with your class, come to the graduation center to pick up a summer school contract. This contract will need to be completed by you and your parents. Students must return the contract to the grad center before May 20th. Be sure to review your student records in Skyward for final semester grades both this year and previous years. Classes with failing grades need to be retaken. Students with questions can contact your counselor. Counselors will review contracts when returned to confirm class(s) needed. Students who have submitted summer school contracts will be notified by Jun 10th of their assigned session. For further details, pick up the Summer School contract.
Enjoy the talented drama and music students’ performance May 5-6 and 12-14.

Thank you for your interest in volunteering in the Kent School District. Volunteers make a difference and their support and contributions are greatly valued. Volunteers in Public Schools (VIPS) support and enrich the lives of students and staff, provide help for individual students, and enhance aspects of the education process.
For the safety of students, staff and volunteers, all volunteers are required to complete a volunteer screening process which includes scheduling an appointment with the school office or department to a complete background check. During this appointment, you must complete a Disclosure Form, have your fingerprints taken, and have a Washington Access To Criminal History (WATCH) report run. Please note that a valid Washington State driver's license, Washington State photo ID, or passport is required for identification.
Volunteers shall have their background check completed and approved prior to having access to students, including field trip volunteers responsible for students other than their own child on a field trip. This process can take four to eight weeks, especially during "peak" seasons such as the beginning of school.
If you have questions, email Faith Sisley or call 253-373-7467.
