The newspaper is a co-curricular activity written by students with teacher supervision and instruction. It is open to all grades and meets every week.
The Cardinal Newspaper is the voice of our students, published two to three times a year on our website. Our students gather the news, write the stories, research information, take pictures, and create the surveys, puzzles, cartoons, and activities that reflect the interests and culture of our school. Sign up and become a part of KMS history! The Cardinal Newspaper….not just a school newspaper; it’s a KMS tradition!
The KMS Drama Club seeks to educate and challenge young performers, providing excellent, family-friendly theatrical experiences. Typically, we produce a Fall Musical and a Spring Showcase. Both of these events require auditions, casting, and some form of rehearsal. While we aim to be as inclusive as possible, some performances do not allow for very large numbers of performers, so we may need to make cuts, depending on the structure of the performance. All students are welcome and encouraged to audition!
Mathcounts is a “nationwide coaching program and a series of competitions designed to stimulate student interest and achievement in mathematics.” Students meet weekly to work on problems individually and in groups. The program is open to all students who enjoy math and being challenged! A letter explaining the program is sent home during the first two weeks.
