KDS Graduates Celebration Parade
Saturday, May 30 was a great morning to celebrate the 2020 graduates of KDS DAR School! The Graduates Celebration Parade featured two classes of KDS graduates - kindergarteners and seniors - the beginning and the end - parading down Main Street while hundreds lined the streets to honor them.

Thanks to everyone who showed up to let our graduates know just how proud we are of all they have achieved.
Summer Activities Resume on a Limited Basis
Although classes are out for the summer, activity on the KDS campus is resuming on a limited basis with sports teams and other groups busily working towards upcoming school year activities.
Patriots for Patriots Mask Program is a Big Success
In mid-May, the school converted its Family & Consumer Sciences Classroom into a mask production facility in an effort to address the great need for personal protective equipment across the country. DAR Chapters, community groups, and individuals who are sewers were asked to lend a hand in service to America.
