From the President’s Pen

Dear KML Family,

What a blessing this first semester has been! God has been with us, guiding us every step of the way, and for that we are thankful. May God continue to bless you with time to relax and enjoy your family and friends during the break. Please take the time to reflect on God’s important plan for us through the birth of his Son. No matter what trouble or trial we face in this world, we are assured we have a forgiving Savior who paved the way for our salvation.

Blessings,

President Luehring

Short-Term Host Families Needed for 3 More Costa Rican Students!

KML is hosting students from Costa Rica from January 17-31, and there are still three students who don’t have a host family. No Spanish knowledge needed, just an extra room and a desire to share your family and culture with others. Don’t miss out on this awesome opportunity to share your family, culture, and the joy of Wisconsin winters! Please see tinyurl.com/kmlcostarica24 for more information, and contact Mrs. Micah Nelson (micah.nelson@kmlhs.org) ASAP if interested in hosting or with any questions. Gracias!

 

Senior Picture Deadline

Senior pictures are due by January 15, 2024. Please email all submissions to Mrs. Becky Meyer (rebecca.meyer@kmlhs.org). If a professional photographer took your pictures, please include a photo release form. Email Mrs. Meyer with any questions. View senior picture instructions and guidelines (kmlhs.org/seniorpics).

 

Lannon Stone Foundation Scholarship

Lannon Stone Foundation announced that it will once again sponsor a scholarship that will pay one half of the KML tuition for a member of KML’s class of 2025 who is not a participant in the school choice program. The student should be planning to pursue a career in engineering or science. A successful applicant will be a member of the class of 2025, have a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0, and plan to pursue a Bachelor of Science degree from an accredited college or university beginning in the fall of 2025. Applicants for the scholarship should submit a professional cover letter and essay as if they were applying for a job or to a university. The cover letter needs to demonstrate that they meet the criteria. The one page essay should describe their interest in the chosen field of study.

Student questions can be directed to Mr. Walz or Mrs. Breimon. Submissions should be emailed to Mrs. Wendy Breimon in KML’s Mission Advancement Office (wendy.breimon@kmlhs.org) no later than Monday, January 15. Mrs. Breimon will forward the applications to Lannon Stone. Officials from the company will interview the top three candidates and make the award determination.

 

KML Culver’s Day in Jackson

Wednesday, January 3, is KML Culver’s Day at Culver’s in Jackson. Student names will be drawn from the class with the highest sales! Winners will receive either a value meal basket, a cheese curd basket, or a concrete mixer. Congratulations, again to our Freshman class and December winners: Addison Stahl, Joshua Krahn, Madisyn Gundrum, Jonah Klemp, Madelyn Ziesemer, and Carter Kroupa. All of this is in addition to 10% of all KML sales going toward the Let’s Grow Together capital campaign. Bring your family and friends to Culver’s for a new years treat on Wednesday, January 3! Be sure to bring a coupon so you can record the class and student you would like to win. If you forget to print one from our website, ask for one at Culver’s. Thank you for supporting your high school.
