posted May 20, 2017, 8:03 AM by KMS Hornets

Kealing Generation citizen students competed in Civics Day and took home the best middle school award for their work on Senate Bill 918. In the Generation Citizen elective, students learn about advocacy and democracy and are provided the opportunity to work with local leaders to solve an issue they are passionate about. We are trying to pass Senate Bill 918 which will require cosmetology license holders to take a course on identifying domestic violence with the intention of providing more options for women experiencing abusive situations.

Kealing 30th (Re)opening Anniversary

posted Mar 27, 2017, 11:46 AM by KMS Hornets   [ updated Apr 12, 2017, 7:58 AM by Kenisha Coburn ]

Kealing 30th (Re)opening Anniversary

Who:      All Hornet Families and Community Members (past, present, and future)

When:    April 22, 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Kealing originally opened in the fall of 1930 but was later closed in 1971 as a part of desegregation efforts. In the fall of 1986 the campus became a junior high both for students in the Kealing neighborhood and for students throughout Austin ISD who were accepted into the magnet program. We have completed 30 school years since the reopening.

Join us for games, tours, music, lunch, and fun as we mark this milestone with members of the Hornet community. Also, we will display Kealing memorabilia as a part of the event. If you have old photos, uniforms, t-shirts, et cetera that you are willing to donate for the display, please drop them by campus no later than April 18. Email shauntay.black@austinisd.org with questions.

Safety Update

posted Jan 27, 2017, 9:22 AM by Shauntay Black

Kealing Parents:

 

This morning we were made aware of a situation in the community near campus, and we are in communication with the Austin Police Department to monitor the situation closely.  Our campus is in a reverse evacuation (meaning that everyone stays inside and transition continues within the walls of our building) until the situation is completely resolved to ensure our students' safety.  There is no imminent threat, but we are playing it safe and ensuring that all our students and staff remain within the perimeter of our building.
