Dragons Descant: December 4, 2017

What a fantastic weekend we had!  Can't complain when its December and we're still hanging outside comfortably.

Not tons of news out there today. But please focus on what's important (see the finals schedule link below). In fact, finals are technically more important at KISJ now than they ever have been.  Yes, they are a full 10% more important to your grade. That means finals are a very important 20% of your final semester grade. Also, make sure you pay extra super special attention to the academic honesty policy before the exams and know the risk your taking if you're thinking about breaking the rules.

From Ms. Cave:
On Saturday at BHA, the KISAC South swim meet was held. Due to the SAT, the HS swim team was considerably smaller than usual with only nine swimmers. Despite this, they all gave 100% and their commitment was rewarded with the boys winning first place (by three points which was one relay race), and the girls, all of whom only joined the team in season 2 last week, placed second in the HS chills category. They were incredible role models to the ES and MS swimmers, eagerly supporting them and offering them encouragement and guidance in swimming etiquette.

12/6: Band & Choir Concert + MS/HS Art Exhibition @ 7:00pm
