The time sure has flown by during this past month of November and the better part of December. Only five days left until we are set free to enjoy our Holiday break.

Over the past five weeks the students of KHS have been rather busy doing fun activities organized by our SRC. With November being the month to support Prostate Cancer the SRC baked mustache cookies and promoted the cause of growing facial hair in support of men who suffer from this disease.

The volleyball teams of KHS wrapped up their seasons during November. Congratulations to our Sr. Girls volleyball team on their showing at conferences and to the Sr.Boys volleyball team on their close loss to Birch Hills at the Regional Playdowns in Nipawin, SK.

To wrap up our magazine sales the students gathered in the gym to watch the brave Sean Cunningham wax his legs in front of everyone as a prize for reaching our goal. November has come and gone and being into December now we can feel the holiday spirit growing in the hallways as each student wraps up their classes in preparation for the winter break.

This past week the SRC launched two new programs; one of the programs is a raffle that every student will be selling tickets on. There are two camouflage themed prized that are up for grabs. Tickets are available from any student and can be purchased before December 18, 2014. The Kelvington Food Bank has been low on food so the SRC decided to launch a food drive titled “Fill Santa’s Sleigh” where every student and staff member at KHS is challenged to fill Santa’s sleigh in time for the Christmas holidays so that we can help stock the coffers at the food bank.
Some new sports teams are coming up during this winter; our curling teams have begun practicing and the basketball teams are in full swing for the season. Thank you to all of the students who dedicate their time to sports and to the coaches who mentor these young adults.

Being that the school is very busy, I should probably get back to work. Every day the students of KHS come to a warm school that is filled with laughter so we are encouraged to spread our good fortune to the marginalized people of society. We hope that every student can help change the world one act of random kindness at a time this holiday season.
As Alice Cooper said “The two most joyous times of the year are Christmas and the end of school” so as we look forward to both of those things we can recall all of the amazing opportunities that 2014 has brought to Kelvington High School and we look forward to 2015 and the even more great things that are about to come. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from the Students and Staff at Kelvington High School.

Yours in education,
