The approximate value of pi is found by dividing the circumference of any circle by its diameter.  We also use 22/7 as an approximate value of pi.      Happy pi day!!!

Kindness can make you healthier and Kindness may be contagious.
Researchers from the Stanford Social Neuroscience Laboratory conducted studies that illustrate that kindness might in fact be “contagious,” and that people are more likely to do kind acts when they see others being kind as well.
Mrs. Morgan and Mrs. Cornett smile at the RAK of when students hold the door for each other or help each other and Titus feels that having the door held open for him is a big RAK that can make a difference. Hallie and Liam feel it makes a difference when someone stands up for each other.
Sierra feels getting a compliment makes a difference and Ellie felt people randomly donating to a cause she picked for her birthday was a huge RAK.

From KMS Counselors:
Guess what? Science shows that the positive effects of kindness are experienced in the brain of those who participated in, received or witnessed the act, improving their mood and making them significantly more likely to “pay it forward”. This means one act of kindness in a crowded area can create a domino effect and improve the day of dozens of people! You can be that person. Imagine if those small acts changed the culture of you school/workplace.
 
Mr. Byers, Mrs. Fitzpatrick, Mrs. Baker, Ms. Albert and Mrs. Reed all feel that a Random Act of Kindness is just when you do something for someone when don’t have to or without being asked to do it.

From KMS School Counselors:
Our final message as part of “National School Counseling Week.” focuses on how we deal with change.
Change is constant in today’s world, and it can be difficult to keep up with at times when life seems to be moving so fast. But by making the right choices, by being determined and persistent and motivated, you can do it. You can be the change you wish to see in this world. As the rock band Journey put it, “Don’t stop believing.”
Harriet Tubman once said, “Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.” Your teachers are here to help. Your principal is, too. And when you need someone who will listen that you can trust, remember that your school counselors (Mrs. Hernandez-Washington, Mrs. Zecchini and Ms. Moses) are always here for you. Thanks to all the students and staff for helping to make this a great week. Now let’s all work together to be the change.

From KMS School Counselors:
Mrs. Hernandez-Washington, Mrs. Zecchini and Ms. Moses want to share today’s“National School Counseling Week” message, which is about acting with compassion. As Aesop, the famous ancient storyteller, once said, “No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.”
We all know people who are selfish, who seem to think only of themselves. We see this in children who pout over candy and toys, in classmates who behave in an ugly or dismissive way when they walk in the school hallways, and in corporate CEOs who value greed.
The author Dean Koontz once said, “Some people think only intellect counts: knowing how to solve problems, knowing how to get by, knowing how to identify an advantage and seize it. But the functions of intellect are insufficient without courage, love, friendship, compassion, and empathy.”
Remember: It’s the random acts of kindness that often can make the biggest difference in a person’s life. As your school counselors, we can help you deal with the challenges you face and help point you in the right direction, and will do so with kindness.

From Mrs. Trummer:

From KMS School Counselors:

The message today as part of “National School Counseling Week” is about developing the right habits that point you in the in the right direction.
The great philosopher Aristotle said, “Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.”

Mrs. Hernandez-Washington, Mrs. Zecchini and Ms. Moses want you to think about the choices you make every day. Are you on the right path? Are you doing the things that will help you succeed in school? Are you going to class, doing your homework, listening to your teachers, getting rest and exercise? Are you maintaining a healthy lifestyle? These things are critical to your future success.

Frank Outlaw, a man you probably don’t know, once said something very wise: “Watch your thoughts, they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.”

From Mrs. Zdenek Advisory:

From KMS School Counselors:
Today is day 2 of “National School Counseling Week.” Mrs. Hernandez-Washington, Mrs. Zecchini and Ms. Moses want to share today’s message which is about choosing your attitude and how that attitude can shape your future.
The inventor Thomas Edison once said, “Our lives are not determined by what happens to us but by how we react to what happens, not by what life brings to us, but by the attitude we bring to life. … There are two types of people: those who fear failure so they never try, and those who fear failure so they never quit.
Abraham Lincoln, our 16th president, faced great struggles with a divided country during the Civil War. But he had great determination and a never give up attitude. “Always bear in mind,” , “that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other.”
A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events, and outcomes. To use Edison’s words, it is a catalyst, a spark that creates extraordinary results. As your school counselors, we are here to help you find your spark.

Ready for a food drive update??

Central may have been confident about winning on Friday, but as of Monday this week, South was beating them. South Unit 7th graders have brought in 688 items, for a total of 1376 points. Central Unit 6th graders have brought in 669 items, for a total of 1338 points. That means only 38 points separates Central and South. North Unit better pick it up if they want to keep the trophy... they only had 920 points, so they're 400+ behind the other units!

The food drive isn't over yet though. Food donations will be accepted until Monday, Dec. 17. Don't put your food into the barrels without showing your advisory teacher- make sure your donation counts toward the trophy totals! Our first food pick up will happen in Central Unit tomorrow, so Central advisory teachers, please make sure donations are counted and put in your barrels by the end of the day today!!

From Student Council:
Today we observe observe Veteran's Day.

Veterans’ Day began after World War I to recognize those who served our country. In 1921, an unknown World War I American soldier was buried in Arlington National Cemetery. The Tomb of this Unknown Soldier, on a hillside overlooking Washington DC, became the focal point of reverence for America's veterans. Similar ceremonies occurred in England and France.

These memorial gestures all took place on November 11, giving universal recognition to the celebrated ending of World War I fighting at 11 a.m., November 11, 1918 (the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month).

Realizing that peace is preserved by ALL veterans, Congress requested to make this a day to honor those who have served America in ALL wars. In 1954 President Eisenhower signed a bill proclaiming November 11 as Veterans’ Day.

KMS would like to recognize and honor our KMS veterans:
Mr. Mark Clayton,
Mr. Jeff Hysinger,
Mrs. Theresa Thompson,
Mr. Scott Helms,
Mrs. Krista Berning,
Mr. Jeff Duncan,
and Mr. Jim Davis.

Thank you sincerely for your service to our great country!

From KMS Counselors:
Today’s theme is “Be All You Can Be! Be Drug Free!” Today’s Red Ribbon announcement is: Although many people smoke because they believe cigarettes calm their nerves, smoking releases epinephrine, a hormone which creates physiological stress in the smoker, rather than relaxation. Cigarette smoking is perhaps the most devastating preventable cause of disease and premature death.
Smoking is particularly dangerous for teens because their bodies are still developing and changing. The 4,000 chemicals (including 200 known poisons) in cigarette smoke can adversely affect this process.
One-third of young people who are just "experimenting" end up being addicted by the time they are 20.
Thank you for participating in the Red Ribbon Week theme activities this week! Remember, Be Safe, Be Responsible, Be Respectful, Be Drug Free!

From KMS Counselors:
Today is Mix It Up At Lunch Day! You may be learning today how students are like Tootsie Pops and why we are doing Mix It Up At Lunch Day! Be ready to answer questions and win prizes in the lunch room. For those of you who are wondering now why we are doing Mix It Up At Lunch Day, listen up. Students consistently identify the cafeteria as a place in their school where divisions are clearly—and harshly—drawn. So today we are asking students to move out of their comfort zones and connect with someone new over lunch. Studies have shown that interactions across group lines can help reduce prejudice and bullying. When students interact with those who are different from them, biases and misperceptions can fall away.

As a team we had 12 kills, 1 block, 15 digs and 11 aces. Fantastic job KMS Volleyball! The girls play Beavercreek Black tonight so come out and support the team!

The defense even managed to get up for some blocks, but in the end the Panthers were just a little too much for the Birds. The girls are practicing hard and will continue to get better as the season goes on! Go Birds!
