From the President’s Pen

Dear KML Family,

I thought I would share how wonderful it is to be on summer break but still have such a busy campus full of activity. Throughout the summer, there will be camps and students of all ages participating in so many different areas that will help them grow. The educating, encouraging, and equipping never stops! Thank you for allowing so many teens and children to be a part of our KML family during these summer months.

Blessings,

President Luehring

Class of 2025 Senior Picture Guidelines & Deadline

It’s time to start thinking about senior pictures for students in the class of 2025! Having your senior pictures taken can be a time consuming process, so we recommend choosing a photographer and contacting him/her right away. All senior pictures must be submitted by January 6, 2025.

Because the yearbook represents Kettle Moraine Lutheran High School, we want to maintain a consistent style and format throughout the book. We do limit the pictures seniors may place in the senior portrait section of the yearbook. The yearbook staff asks that one picture be taken and submitted digitally which meets the guidelines found at kmlhs.org/seniorpics.

Senior pictures are due January 6, 2025. If we do not receive a picture by this date, the student’s ID picture will be placed in the yearbook instead. Please do not wait until the last minute.

Please feel free to contact Mrs. Rebecca Meyer (rebecca.meyer@kmlhs.org) with any questions or concerns.

 

Class of 2025 Seniors Borrowing Sports Uniforms

Any seniors wishing to borrow any sports uniforms for senior pictures need to fill out a form (posted at kmlchargers.com/athletic-paperwork – scroll to the bottom of the page) and include a $15 deposit of which $10 will be returned when the uniform is returned.

For BASKETBALL, FOOTBALL, and SOFTBALL, please contact your coach directly to coordinate obtaining your uniform.
