Through talking with trusted peers and adults, young people gain perspective about their pain and the problems they’re experiencing.

Today, to highlight the importance of showing your personality and what makes you...you, it is “Show your Inner Character Day!” so try to spot people who are dressed up as their favorite animated character!

Next week is Hope Week here at KMS. Hope Week is designed to spread hope, bring awareness to suicide prevention, and to highlight how we are all important, matter, and are our own individual person. 

Next Monday, May 10th kicks off Hope Week with “Don’t be Mean, wear Green Day!”, so wear as much green as you can to school next Monday! Let’s remember that we need to treat each other with kindness and compassion because we never know what someone may be going through in their own life.

Stay tuned each day on announcements next week to hear what the following day’s theme will be! Remember, wear lots of green next Monday!

The final thought for Random Acts of Kindness week.....Kindness is a silent smile, a friendly word, a nod of encouragement.  Kindness is the most single powerful thing we can teach children.  Kindness is not what you do but who you are.....

From Coach Schooler:
All 7th and 8th graders interested in joining KMS track this spring should pick up an informational packet in north or south unit offices and join the google classroom with the code in the packet.

From KMS Counselors:
This Week is Random Acts of Kindness Week.....while Kindness is something we should practice on a daily basis, during this week each year, we are reminded of the importance of showing kindness and how much it can help others, even the smallest act.  Take time this week to make sure you are holding the door for someone, thanking a teacher or staff member, saying please and thank you a little more and so on....
Kindness is choosing to acknowledge and celebrate the beauty in others, regardless of whether or not they can find it in themselves. 

Today's thought on kindness....
Be kind whenever possible and it is always possible- Dalia Lama

From Student Council:
It's Thankful Thursday, and this week we're having Thank-the-Cafeteria-Staff Thursday.  This year has been tough on everyone, and our cafeteria workers are no different!  They have been packing meals every day for families to pick up, AND they even took meals out on school buses earlier in the year.  Now that we have students who are back in-person, the cafeteria staff makes breakfasts and lunches, PLUS they are still monitoring the bag lunch pick up as well. Whew! Thank you to Mrs. Siler and her smiling, hard-working staff!  The Student Council would like to encourage everyone to take a second to Thank-the-Cafeteria-Staff for today's Thankful Thursday!

Announcements for Friday, February 5, 2021

From KMS Counselors:
Good morning. Ms. Moses, Mrs. Hernandez-Washington and Mrs. Zecchini would like to thank you for listening to these announcements during “National School Counseling Week.” Our final message 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 counselor is 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. And remember, we are all in for all students ...

 

Announcements for Thursday, February 4, 2021

From Student Council:
Student council would like to announce that today is Thank-A-Counselor-Thursday! This is the first Thankful Thursday we've had and the student council wants to start by recognizing our 3 amazing KMS counselors: Ms. Moses, Mrs. Zecchini, and Mrs. Hernandez-Washington.

Maybe you don't realize how much our counselors do here at KMS: sure they listen to students who need them, but they also build community among students, AND greet people in the hallways to make everyone feel welcome, AND communicate with parents, AND help with cafeteria duty, AND cover classrooms when teachers need them to, AND this list could keep going AND going AND going!

The KMS counselors help everyone on campus and the student council wants to make sure that these 3 ladies know how much they mean to us. If you see Ms. Moses, Mrs. Zecchini, or Mrs. Hernandez-Washington today, make sure to say THANK YOU on this Thank-A-Counselor-Thursday!

From KMS Counselors:
Good morning. Today is day 4  of “National School Counseling Week.” The message today 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,” said the man responsible for ending slavery, “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.
 
This past year has been a great reminder that the attitude you choose can impact you every day and as your school counselors, we are here to help you

 

Announcements for Wednesday, February 3, 2021

From KMS Counselors:
Good morning. Mrs. Zecchini, Ms. Moses and Mrs. Hernandez-Washington here and today is day 3  of “National School Counseling Week.” 

Today we are celebrating diversity. I’d like to ask you to look around your classroom. What do you see? None of us is alike. We look different, sound different and think differently. We are all unique. And what a fabulous school we have as a result. How boring life would be if we were all the same.
 The poet Maya Angelou said, “We all should know that diversity makes for a rich tapestry, and we must understand that all the threads of the tapestry are equal in value no matter what their color.“ 
When it comes right down to it, we are all different inside and out, and diversity is the one true thing we all have in common. Acknowledge your differences and celebrate them. Not just today, but every day.

We always love to hear about you and what makes you unique or who you have become thus far.

From Mrs. Shadoan:

Attention KMS Student Council Members: We will be meeting via Zoom tomorrow, which is Wednesday, February 3. 8th grade will meet at 12:30, and 7th grade will meet at 1:00. The link to the Zoom meeting is in the email Mrs. Shadoan sent. Please try to be on time to the meeting. Email Mrs. Shadoan if you have any questions.

 

From KMS Counselors:

Good morning. This is Your School counselors coming to you on day 2.... Today’s ” message focuses on “what matters.” 

Actor Matt Damon said recently: “I think what’s important for kids to know is your decisions here on earth matter. Your behavior matters. How you treat other people matters.” What you do in school, at home, and in other places makes a difference in your life and in the lives of others. It might be as simple as holding the door open for someone, or as complex as writing a great story or inventing a new way of computing. No matter how big or how small, what you do matters. 

In Oh, the Places You’ll Go, Dr. Seuss writes: “You'll get mixed up, of course, as you already know. You'll get mixed up with many strange birds as you go. So be sure when you step. Step with care and great tact and remember that Life's a Great Balancing Act. Just never forget to be dexterous and deft. And never mix up your right foot with your left.”

If you need to talk about making decisions, reach out to us….

From KMS Counselors:

Good Morning KMS…..This is Mrs. Hernandez-Washington, Mrs. Zecchini, and Ms. Moses and today is the first day of National School Counseling Week. Our focus this weeks is All in for all Students”

 

Pop star Katy Perry once said, “It takes a village to make me who I am.” This simple quote has a lot of depth. Each one of us has a village. Your village consists of your classmates, friends, family, teachers and others who surround you each day. Your village can help you become who you want to be. Your village is your network. Sometimes when we share our dreams and goals with our village, they can provide much needed support to help us achieve them. If you’ve set a goal to increase your grade in a class maybe discuss your goal with your teacher. He/she could provide you with strategies to help you accomplish what you’ve set out to do.

 

Who do you trust in your village to help you with your dreams? Who could be a resource and help you along your path to achieving your goals? Give this some thought and come see me if you want to chat. Your School Counselors are part of your village and are here for ALL of you!

 

Make sure to check our Google Classrooms everyday for information or questions…
