3rd Grade “Celebrate Around the World Event”

Each year Mrs. Mikesell organizes a special “Celebrate Around the World” event for our KES third grade students. This event allows our students to learn about other countries and cultures as they “travel” to various “countries” throughout the day. Amy puts a lot of time into preparing materials and communicates with staff and students at KHS in order to recruit volunteers. She coordinates with Louise Matthews from The Lion and Lamb Peace Arts Center of Bluffton University, who brings clothing samples from other countries and leads a special presentation for this event.

Miss Loughman from KHS attended along with a number of her KHS volunteers. The third grade students appreciated all the help from the KHS students and enjoyed the presentations from the exchange students.

Ms. Kimmel’s Kindergarten Class

Kindergarten teacher Ms. Kimmel collaborated with a fellow teacher from Hilliard, Ohio to contribute items for the “Mail Call” for a Vietnam War Veteran. The veteran took an Honor Flight from Columbus to Washington DC on October 19, 2019. Here are the kindergarten students with their special pictures for that very special Veteran!

Veteran’s Day Assembly

Also, a big thanks to our KHS band and JROTC for participating in the Veteran’s Day Assembly.
