From the President’s Pen
Dear KML Family,
Our preparations for the new school year are nearly complete! Thank you for choosing KML and being a part of our student body of more than 530 students. We are excited to welcome our entire KML family back on Wednesday, August 18. Please pray for our families, students, faculty, and staff as we begin another year focused on the foundation of our school, Jesus Christ. What a blessing it will be to gather our Christian community together!
Immediate Host Family Opening
The KML International Student Program has an immediate need of a host family for a male Chinese student returning for the 2021-22 school year. Open your home to a student and engage the world! Monthly stipend included. If interested or for more information, contact Mrs. Dawn Farley (262.677.4051 x4036; firstname.lastname@example.org).
SCRIP Office Hours
If you’re not a current SCRIP user, now is a great time to become one! Start earning credit toward your student’s tuition and fees, or receive a cash rebate on your purchases. Stop in the SCRIP Office or visit www.kmlhs.org/scrip to learn more! And always feel free to reach out to email@example.com with any questions. We’d love to help you put this program to use!
Don’t forget SCRIP as you get ready for the school year!
A full list of vendors can be found at www.shopwithscrip.com
If you’re looking for a volunteer opportunity, please consider the KML SCRIP Office! This involves filling or handing out orders and keeping inventory of the stock on hand. Training is simple and done on the job. The shifts we are specifically looking to fill are Wednesday mornings and Friday mornings, 8:00 AM-12:00 PM. We also welcome volunteers who are only available once or twice a month. Our volunteers are an important part of making the SCRIP program successful. If you’re interested in learning more, please contact Mrs. Michelle Zak (firstname.lastname@example.org).
A reminder for large or special order items: please place your order in person by 1:00 PM Friday or online by midnight Saturday in order to have your cards available the following Wednesday.
School pictures will be taken on the first day of school, Wednesday, August 18. Paper order forms are not being sent out this year. Please visit kmlhs.org/schoolpics to place your order directly with Network Photography online. Retakes are scheduled for Friday, September 24.
KML Parent-Athlete Meeting Follow-Up: NEW Student Athletes
NEW KML Student-Athletes (including transfer students), who were NOT able to attend (either virtually or in-person) the Mandatory Parent-Athlete Meeting, are reminded to:
These items need to be completed no later than Friday, August 13, at 11:59PM.
Required Forms for Sport Participation
Students planning to participate in KML Athletics must have the necessary athletic forms on file. Athletes will NOT be allowed to participate in a fall sport without the required paperwork.
All forms are posted at https://kmlchargers.com/athletic-paperwork/, are available in the rack outside the Main Office, or can be picked up from the Activities Office.
Please contact Mrs. Amy Nass (email@example.com) with any questions you may have about required paperwork or what your child has submitted or is missing.
All forms should be on file at KML prior to the first practice/tryout clinic. Forms may be mailed or dropped off in the Main Office. Athletes will NOT be allowed to try out or practice without the proper paperwork on file.
Equipment and Uniforms
Athletes are issued uniforms at the beginning of each sports season. The proper care of that equipment is the duty of the athlete. Uniforms should never be bleached. Equipment or uniforms lost or damaged beyond common use must be replaced by the athlete. The cost will be based on the replacement price. Cleaned uniforms are due to the coach or Activities Office within one week after the teams’ final season game. Late fees of $5.00 per week will be assessed up to one month, after which a replacement fee will be assessed to the athlete. Uniforms should be handed in to the Activities Office in a bag with the athlete’s name included. Please be sure the uniform is cleaned, turned right-side out, and complete. Repairs should be made if possible. Please call the Activities Office with questions.
Fall Athletic Team Pictures
Athletes participating in a fall sport will have a team picture taken on the dates listed below. Order forms for team and individual pictures will be sent home with each athlete at the start of their season. Purchasing pictures is optional, but all athletes must be in the team photo. Complete uniforms need to be worn. Please coordinate jersey color choice with your coaches.
The schedule is as follows:
Thursday, August 12
Thursday, August 19
Wednesday, August 25
Athletic event schedules are available at https://kmlchargers.com/athletic-schedule/. Specific sport schedule information is also posted on each sport’s home page. Practice calendars are posted under the MORE tab (again on each sport’s home page). Please consult the schedules in advance to avoid conflicts. Some changes in printed schedules do occur. The online calendar (www.kmlhs.org/calendar) will have the most current schedule.
Fall Sport Parent Volunteers
All parents who have a child participating in a fall sport will be assigned to assist with game duties, take admissions, or work in the concession stand. A schedule will be sent home with all athletes and is also posted at https://kmlchargers.com/athletic-volunteer-schedule/. If you are unable to work during your assigned time, please switch with another parent and email Mrs. Amy Nass (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the change. For dates when you are helping with admissions or concessions, please identify yourself to the admission takers to gain complimentary admission.
KML Athletic Admission / Passes / Directions to Games
KML is excited to welcome all guests back to our campus this fall season! We will not be limiting spectator attendance at this time. Please note that masks are optional for all KML events. What a joy it will be to see our bleachers and sidelines full again!
