Tardy to School:  KHMS takes pride in teaching students lifelong skills that they will need in the work force.  One of these skills is to be to school on time.  Parents know they have to be to work on time to achieve success at work or they will have consequences; students have this same expectation, they need to be to school on time or they will have consequences.  Missing even as little as 5-10 minutes of any class is detrimental to a student’s learning and success in school.

With the upcoming holiday season fast approaching, it is time once again to think about the men and women in the United States Armed Forces who will be spending Thanksgiving and Christmas away from family and friends in a foreign country.  The C.O.R.E Leadership Team and JLC are sponsoring the Operation Falcons Give Project.  This is our chance to show our support by collecting items and filling Christmas Stockings to be shipped to the troops serving in Afghanistan and Iraq this year. Here is a list of items we will be collecting and a way you can help support the Operation Falcons Give: Individual packets of drink mixes, beef jerky, fruit snacks, granola bars, gum, candy (no chocolate), travel-size toiletries (combs, brushes, razors, shampoo/conditioner, toothbrushes/toothpaste), white tube socks, hand sanitizers, AA and AAA batteries, puzzles, books, hand held games, and decks of cards.  We will be collecting items Nov. 19th-Dec. 1 and donations of money are accepted and should be made payable to: We Support Our Troops. Please see attachment for more information.

The girls’ basketball team will be playing Great Bend at KH starting at 3:30pm today.  Please come and support our KH Falcons!

The Western Kansas Orchestra Festival WILL NOT be held in Salina.  The Festival will be held at Garden City High School, November 20-21st.

KH Papa John’s Day will be Monday, November 23rd.  Any orders throughout the day helps support KH.    Please see the  attachment.

There will be no school November 25th  – November 27th

Happy Thanksgiving Break.

Fellow Falcons, the submission deadline for 1st semester is past but we are still in need of Box Tops.  As a school, we managed to collected $240.00 worth of tops and will be receiving our check in December.  WAY TO GO!  Let’s keep those Tops coming in and make our goal of $1,000 by March 1.  If every student brought 10 Tops a month, we would collect $375.00 a month and easily reach our yearly goal.  Remember, the money earned goes directly back to you in the form of rewards and opportunities.  Keep up the great work, Falcons and collect away!

The Yearbook Class is in need of Sports/Activity pictures.  If you have some to share you can email them to

  • It has come to our attention that several schools in USD 457 are encouraging staff/parents to download an APP called Shoparoo.   What is Shoparoo?  Shoparoo is the most hassle-free school fundraiser around.  Shoparoo is a free app for iOS and Android phones that allows anyone and everyone to take pictures of their shopping receipts to earn cash donations for the school of their choice!

Both rewarding and easy, tens of thousands of schools across the country are using Shoparoo to pay for new supplies, classroom and playground enhancements, field trips, tuition assistance and much more. There is no registration required, and no set up process - anyone can raise money for any school. Just take a few moments to snap a picture of your grocery receipt on your smartphone, and voila - you've made an instant cash donation! Parents, teachers and other supporters love Shoparoo because:

  • No coordinating is required
  • Parents don't have to buy anything they wouldn't normally buy
  • The app makes earning money extremely easy and quick

The following link gives more information about the App:
