The NHS Book Drive:  Have the books in your first block class been piling up?  I hope so, only two weeks remain in the NHS book drive.  Any donation is appreciated and will bring your class one step closer to a free food award!

The book drive is being coordinated by Colin Mast.   KHS and the Local Community have donated 337 books already!  The class which is leading is Mrs. Sheneman’s with a staggering 65 books donated.  In second place is Ms. Joyce with 58 books and in third place is Mrs. Wahl with 42 books.  Just a reminder that we are looking for your gently used children books, beginner chapter books, and young adult fiction.  At the conclusion of the drive, the class with the most books donated will receive a catered breakfast meal!  Thank you for your support and I look forward to seeing what Kenston High School can accomplish!
