Superintendent's Message

Hard to believe, but the First Quarter of classes this year comes to and end on Thursday, October 19.  Elementary Teachers are using this day as a work-day--an opportunity to get grades caught up and plans made for Second Quarter--while the Secondary treats it like "Business as Normal".  All Pre-K through 5th Grade students will NOT have classes on the 19th of October. 
Kim's FFA Chapter is sending seven students and their sponsor to Indianapolis, Indiana, to participate in National FFA Convention. It has been many years since Kim sent a contingency of students to this event and everyone going is looking forward to a week-long adventure of leaning and socializing with thousands of students nation-wide. 
Football and Volleyball seasons are wrapping up.  The High School Volleyball team has a chance to continue on into the playoffs as they will participate in the District Tournament at Lamar Community College on Saturday, October 28.  Regionals is the following Thursday--November 2, if we play well in Districts.  Middle School Football ends at La Veta on October 26, and High School Football completes its season on Friday, October 20, as Branson holds its Homecoming by welcoming Cheraw as the final opponent of the season.
Meanwhile, classes are zooming right along, the workload is challenging, and it seems like every staff member and student in the district is keeping extremely busy. The first nine weeks of school have had more than their share of activity. Between the field trips, FFA and FBLA events, Athletics, and normal daily life, Kim has been a whirlwind since school began. 
Here's to a scary (but not too frightening) Halloween, a peaceful and productive lead-up to the Holidays, and a very successful next step of the Kim school year.
