Prudential Spirit of Community Award Nominee

KMMS is proud to name 8th grader Adeline Bergholz-Gleason as our nominee for the 2021 Prudential Spirit of Community Awards. This award recognizes youth who are making a difference through their volunteer work in their schools and communities. In addition to the great work she has done as a Student Ambassador here at KMMS and volunteering at the Magee Elementary carnival, Addie is being honored for the volunteer work she has done at Three Pillars Senior Living Community in Dousman. As KMMS's nominee, Addie is being advanced to state-level judging to potentially become one of Wisconsin's top student volunteers! Way to go, Addie!  
Learning Environment Change Request Period Begins January 4

A link to a change request form will be shared via Infinite Campus Jan. 4 and requests will be open through Jan. 10. 

If you plan to make a change, please consider the impact a potential quarantine might have on your family in the coming quarter/term and select the correct environment. Due to staffing needs and configurations:

Changes at the elementary level will likely cause reassignment of your child’s teacher and class configuration, regardless of your family's decision. In addition, changes in either direction will not be honored after Jan. 10.
KM will not be able to honor changes at the middle and high school levels from distance learning to face-to-face learning after Jan. 10. 
At the high school level, selecting distance learning may alter your student’s term three course selections.
The final opportunity to request a change will occur before the start of term four, which begins on March 30.

NOTE: This change request form is only necessary if you want to change your environment for the third quarter/term, which begins Jan. 26.
