KUHS is proud to be recognized as an AVID high school, a high school that has proven achievement and creates lifelong advantages for our students. Our fine and performing arts programs are second to none. KUHS offers a Liberal Arts Academy with OIT where students can earn up to 18 college credits before they graduate high school! We are also partnering with KCC to offer a KU/KCC Career Pathways program where students can take classes at KCC in Computer Technology, Digital Media Design, Emergency Response Operations, Auto-Diesel Technology and Welding. In some of the pathways, students can become certified before they graduate high school! KUHS continues to be strong with exceptional programs in business.
Seniors: An updated scholarship list is available with several new scholarships. You can pick up a copy from Mr. Todd, Mrs. Headden, Mrs. Menke, ASPIRE or from the rack outside the counseling office. The scholarships are also listed on the KU Counseling Blog.
Give Back Tables will soon be set up around school to collect unused and wrapped food items only from breakfast and lunch times. Don't throw good food away when someone else can eat it. The collected food will be available for other hungry students in the counseling office.
This is a necessary reminder to KU students from Mr.Swan about a few student behavior items that need to improve:
1. Personal Displays of Affection (PDA) at school including kissing are not allowed on campus at anytime. Please be respectful, or be prepared to be disciplined.
2. Use of cell phones in classes is not a constitutional right and are not allowed in class. If a teacher tells you to put your phone away, you must do it without arguing or face being written up for Defiance. Ms.Yazzie will address cell phone violations with discipline referrals, lunch detention and calls home to parents if necessary.
3. Please show Respect for Self, Others, and KU by being your Best Self and doing your Best Work every day. Use of profanity and vulgar language in our hallways and school activities does not represent what is best about KU, or our proud students. Thank you for your cooperation.
The food drive here at Klamath Union continues through today!

QUOTE OF THE DAY:
Have a great day and fantastic 3-day weekend!
REMEMBER - NO SCHOOL ON MONDAY! IT'S PRESIDENT'S DAY!
PSAT score reports from College Board will be posted electronically to student's individual email addresses between Dec. 10-12. KU students will receive their paper reports after the schools receive them, and they will be dispersed to Sophomores and Juniors (who took the test in October) after Winter Break.
Parents and Students: A valuable resource for students to get extra help in classes is available every day after school in the KU Media Center. Tutoring is free and available from 3:15 - 5:15 pm Monday through Friday. Everyone needs extra effort and help with academics at one time or another. Tutoring is another opportunity to improve grades!
Thank you to the many families and friends who have shown tremendous support for KU Pelican students and staff so far this year. Parents, grandparents, alumni, and many others cheer our student athletes, attend KU music and theater performances, attend conferences for students, provide food for staff, and shower Klamath Union with love and support. We feel you and appreciate all you do! Go Pels!
- Mr. Swan
