Eric Watson turned in a phone and a set of car keys that he found in the upper C bathroom. About an hour later, a very worried Jimmy Horwitz came to the Main Office to see if someone had turned in his missing items. Jimmy said, “Wow, I don’t even know him, but I’m so glad he turned them in! I was definitely in a panic when I found out they were missing!” A big “thank you” to Eric!

I’d like to get a shout out to some boys on the hockey team, Kyle Silk, Remy Maurer and Cooper Akers, for doing a good deed last night (1/12/2019). They went to a late dinner after their hockey game. On the way back, the were on Pettibone Rd and came upon many cars that were stuck on the hill due to snow and ice. After an already exhausting night for them, the boys spent over an hour in the freezing weather using Kyle’s truck to tow almost all the cars out and waited until police came to help the one car they couldn’t tow.

November 5, 2013On Friday, November 1, one of our students rescued an “escapee” – a large, black, well-behaved DOG. Antonio DiDomenico returned to KHS mid-afternoon, and walked up to the building with a large black dog in tow. Antonio checked the dog’s collar, called the Animal Protective League, with the tag’s numbers, and was given the phone number of the owner. Ironically, the owner was on Bainbridge Road – Antonio phoned the owner, and found that the man could not come pick up the dog, so Antonio walked the dog down the back way to Bainbridge Rd., returning the dog safely to his owner.
