Kenneth Henderson will participate again in a Pennies for Patients fundraiser, 2/1/2016 – 2/12/2016, which raises money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to find cures for blood cancers and assist families in need. This year, students will compete within their teams by donating money in their Social Studies classes. All of Mrs. Doull’s classes, Mr. Borton’s classes and Ms. Eastman’s classes will compete against each other. The team that raises the most money will win a prize for every student on that team. Parents can also make donations by either sending money with their child, or by making an online donation at http://mid.sy.llsevent.org/KennethHendersonMiddleSchool, to win prizes (see flyer). You can also donate by check, made payable to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Thank you in advance for any donations made that will help save lives!


KH Intermediate Tour (KH Singers, Jazz Band, 8th Grade Orchestra) will be performing at 5 different schools Friday, February 5th. 


Attention all KHBB 7th/8th B Teams!!  The B teams will play at home against Horace Good on Tuesday, Feb 9th. The first game will start at 4pm.


February 16-17th  -  All students will be taking the Math Performance State Assessment.  This test will take approximately 25 minutes and will test your student’s ability to apply their math knowledge to real world problems.


KH Papa John’s Day will be Monday, February 22nd.  Any orders throughout the day helps support KH.  Please see attachment.


February 22-23rd - 8th graders will be taking the Multidisciplinary Performance Task (MDPT).  MDPT is a performance task that gives a glimpse of a student’s critical thinking and writing in an on-demand environment.  This is a two day state assessment.  Each day will take approximately 30 minutes and will be administered in their social studies class.  On day one, students will read articles relating to a topic in science or social studies and taking notes on these.  On day two, students will provide a typed response to a prompt related to the articles while using their notes from day one.

KHBB games scheduled for February 25th at Horace Good have been moved to Monday, February 22nd.


BOX TOPS                                                                                                                              

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.  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 khyearbook1@gmail.com.
