Dear KHS families,
I sincerely hope that this newsletter finds you doing extremley well and having experienced an enjoyable summer so far! The month of August has arrived and we here at KHS are very excited about the upcoming school year. School will officially start on Tuesday, September 4 and many different people have been passionately preparing to have our school ready to provide our students with the absolute best learning environment and opportunities available.
Please know that throughout this school year I will continuously use our high school website and electronic newsletter to keep you informed of any changes and our progress. I humbly request your continued support and involvement in your son’s or daughter’s education throughout the year. I ask for this for when we are all able to truly work together our students will certainly have positive experiences within the classroom and beyond. In addition, please feel free to contact me if you any questions or concerns that you would like to discuss. Each student’s educational journey is unique and presents different challenges, therefore I want to make sure that EACH one of our students is properly supported along the way.

1ST DAY OF SCHOOL AT KHS
Freshmen & New Student Orientation Evening
The will be a student/parent orientation taking place at Kaukauna High School on Monday, August 27, 2018. From 5:00-5:50 P.M. IGNITION Mentors will be serving a complimentary spaghetti dinner to our freshmen, new students, and their parents. Building tours will also be offered during that time for those who are interested. The “Path to Success” presentation will begin promptly at 6:00 P.M. in the auditorium with break-out sessions to follow. The purpose of orientation is to ensure that incoming students and their families feel comfortable and knowledgeable about the potential experiences of transitioning to Kaukauna High School. The format for the evening consists of a brief welcome and introduction of presenters and programs, followed by four consecutive 15 minute presentations held in smaller groups with time for questions and answers. We look forward to seeing our newest Galloping Ghosts and their parents at this orientation as we work together to provide a positive and meaningful high school educational experience for each student.
We look forward to seeing you there!
2017-2018 YEARBOOKS HAVE ARRIVED.
The 2017-2018 Kaukauna High School Papyrus Yearbooks will be ready for students to pick up
on Wednesday, August 15th and Thursday, August 16th from 9 AM – 7 PM. This is in conjunction with the school registration dates. If you/your child forgot to order a yearbook there will be a limited number of additional yearbooks available for purchase. The cost is $60. The yearbook committee will also be selling past yearbooks during the distribution dates. Available Yearbooks for sale are 2017, 2016, 2014, and 2013 at a cost of $40 each. Yearbooks for 2008-2012 will be available for $20. Yearbooks for 1996 - 2007 will be available for $10.
ORDER YOUR 2018-2019 YEARBOOK
It’s time to order your 2018-2019 yearbook online starting now for $50. The link to order your yearbook is http://jostensyearbooks.com/?REF=A09318500 The cost of the Yearbook will go up after October 1st so order your yearbook early. Don’t forget the yearbook is a permanent memory book. While most students own a cell phone and take hundreds of pictures a year, few of these pictures will ever make it into a photo album and even fewer of these pictures will be saved for the future. As a parent, you probably still have your yearbook and you know the value of this “history” book. We hope you will invest in a “history” book for your son or daughter as well. Yearbook distribution will take place at registration in 2019. The reason is so we can include senior awards, senior graduation ceremony pictures along with spring sports.
