No School - MLK Day
Third Quarter started with students learning Hands-Only CPR and how to approach emergency scenarios. Classes are creating public service announcements to help teach and motivate other KCS kids to help when help is needed.
The Environmental Service Club is off to a great start! We have begun cleaning up our campus and doing beach clean ups. Students are looking forward to more service projects and exploring the island together.
