Online Clubs - Meetings/Links/Schedules: here
Do not eat anything that came in the box in the mail until Thursday's activity at 8:15. We will be making something with the ingredients in the box and you need all of them. There is a special schedule Friday and attendance is still mandatory.
You are allowed to receive one night of homework over break; one hour for AP students and 45 minutes for non AP students.
Auditions for the US Winter Play, Twelve Angry Jurors, will be Wednesday, December 16 and callbacks December 17 from 4:00 - 6:00pm. There are no time slots as all Jurors are in the same room and we will read for different roles, so please plan to stay the whole time. If you can't make it please let me know. Script is linked here and the second part here. Follow this link to the zoom for the audition and this link for the cast breakdown.
Community Service Committee
The Community Service Committee is currently hosting its annual Snowman Gift Drive. If you wish to donate a gift to a child, please visit this website which features the most urgent gifts that kids are currently waiting for. The organization is also accepting direct donations if you do not choose to sponsor a gift. After your family has donated, please fill out this form in order to track what our community gave. Thank you for your support!
The Chanukah activities will continue for the next few nights. Tonight will be the show and tell and dreidel games, tomorrow night is a big night discussing holidays, and the last night we will be having a community service project.
Lit Loose (the KPS book club) will be having our next meeting in late January. The official date is TBD. The book is The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky.
Need to brush up on your verb tenses? Feeling perplexed by punctuation? The Writing Center has a new Topic Page on "Grammar, Usage, and Mechanics" with links to resources and practice exercises. Go to "Groups," "Writing Center," and "Topics" to find it. Students can also make an appointment with a Writing Center teacher to discuss and better understand the art of grammar, as well as any other aspect of language arts. This trimester, those teachers are Dr. Schwartz and Dr. Porterfield.
