Hornet Herald - July 14, 2019

Hey Hornets,

We've made it to mid-July and I have some updates for you. If you are receiving this as a former Kealing parent who wants out of the group, send an email to kms-hornet-herald+unsubscribe@googlegroups.comIf this does not apply to you, happy reading!


As you can see, the bond projects are moving along. We are looking forward to a larger and much-improved health office and a modified program office. All of the stairs will have new tread and a number of improvements are being made to support robotics and technology career spaces. Our students and staff will definitely appreciate the air conditioning system upgrade (unfortunately we are largely without A/C for the next three weeks while the system is being updated). Our main floor offices are shuffling around too and we will have a new and improved counseling center. It’s an exciting upgrade that will result in increased support for our students. The crew is moving quickly and has stayed on schedule so far. My fingers are crossed that the work will be all done before students return!

Volleyball Camp is Coming

Kealing Volleyball Camp is July 29 – August 1. Due to the A/C repair, camp is being held at Gus Garcia Middle School. The camp is open to all students who will attend Kealing during the 2019-2020 school year. The fee is $65 and scholarships are available. Click here for more information or contact Coach Brynie at

Got Supplies?

Supply sales are starting in stores and I am sure some of you are ready to catch some deals. The basic school supply lists for the 2019-2020 school year can be found on the Kealing website. These lists include items that students will need for their core classes. There are also a few supplies that will be delivered to Advisory teachers during the first week of school to be used across all Kealing classrooms. Since the students all take a variety of electives with different needs, be on the lookout for a few additional requests during the first two weeks of school.
