Kansas Anti-Bullying Awareness Week is next week, October 3rd through the 9th. Kenneth Henderson Middle School will observe the week through Anti-Bullying announcements and other activities including Blue Shirt Day. We encourage all students and staff to wear a blue shirt on Tuesday, October 4th, to promote Anti-Bullying Awareness! Those who wear blue, will have a chance to win a prize! For further Anti-Bullying information, visit:
Join us for Freddy’s Night on Tuesday, October 4th! When you dine-in or carry out, 15% of sales will be donated back to Kenneth Henderson Middle School! For more information, please see the attached flyer!
National Walk to School Day is Wednesday, October 5th! Kenneth Henderson will celebrate by having students walk the track before school instead of going to the gym that morning.
At the end of each quarter, students receive a Pride Side Sheet to take home. The first cut-off date is October 5th, 2016. If the Pride Side Sheet is returned the very next day with parent’s signature, the student will receive 20 bonus points. Please check the Pride Side attachment for more details!
This year, CORE Student Leadership Team will have their own station at Boo at the Zoo on Saturday, October 22nd! We will need enough candy to give away to over 5,500 trick-or-treaters! If you would like to donate a bag of candy to CORE, please bring your donations to the counseling office here at Kenneth Henderson! Any donations would be very much appreciated! Thank you for your support! *Please, no gum as per zoo request!*
In order to fund some of our special activities here at KH (such as P.R.I.D.E. Side and other activities that reward good citizenship by our students), we are participating in the Box Tops for Education Program! This is a great program that requires little to no work, but the rewards our school can earn from it are huge!
You can find Box Tops on a number of different products you find in the stores. Simply cut the Box Top off of the item(s), and send them to school with your child! There is a drop box located in the foyer (just as you are entering our building) that your student(s) can place them in! Thank you for your help and continued support!
If you would like to order KH Falcon apparel through our local RT Sporting Goods, please click on the link below! The Fan Gear Store will remain open all year, and orders will be placed once every two to three weeks! Visit the website below to purchase your Falcon Fan Gear today!
Your child has the opportunity to participate in a counseling small group here at Kenneth Henderson Middle School for a total of eight weeks (the exact dates have yet to be determined). Small group counseling is an excellent way for students to learn new life skills, develop self-confidence, become more aware of how they present themselves, practice new behaviors, and better understand how to deal with the many challenges life can present.
You will find the types of groups we are offering listed on the attached form. If you would like your student to participate in one or more of the groups listed on the attached form, please mark the group(s), sign below, and return the form to the counseling office as soon as possible. We can also meet with your child on an individual basis, if he or she would feel more comfortable in an individual counseling setting.
Now through April 30th, 2017, Kenneth Henderson Middle School will be participating in the Home Team Advantage Program through our local Buffalo Wild Wings. See the attachment for more information!
The Falcon Newsletter is sent out weekly via e-mail! There are also other ways to keep informed of all that’s going on here at KH!
