Students Doing Good Things:

KHS School Spirit Challenge/Food Drive

This year, a couple of KHS students decided to do something to give back to their community. In doing so, they chose to participate in the School Spirit Challenge this fall. This event incorporates a food drive, and a pep rally that promote participation within the community both inside and outside of school.

The week of September 28 will be the focus week for collecting non-perishable items. Each day, there will be a theme, such as pasta or canned vegetables. We ask that students try to participate each day, as we are trying to reach our goal of 10,000 pounds of food. Funds are just as important as collecting non-perishables, and are greatly appreciated. We have created a website where you can donate food and/or funds towards the cause. This website can be found at the link: On this website, you can choose food items to donate through a virtual grocery store, or donate funds directly to the cause.

A portion of the proceeds do go directly to local food pantries in addition to being distributed to families in need throughout the state. Every dollar donated equals four meals for a family in need. Beginning next week, we will have collection boxes in various locations throughout the high school to collect both food and funds to go toward our totals.

In addition, on the morning of October 2 from 6-8 AM Channel 13 News will be at KHS hosting a televised pep rally. We ask that students arrive by 5:45 AM so that we can set up and allow the news crew to do the same. Throughout that time we will be participating in various school-wide events.  Any contributions are greatly appreciated. We thank you for your support for our school and community!
