NEWS FROM STUDENT SERVICES
Any grad receiving a scholarship/bursary/award from a university/college or outside group must forward Mrs. McCarthy the email/copy of official school letter so this award may be recognized at graduation. We do not always receive notification at the school so we are depending on graduates to share this information with us.
KRHS LIBRARY NEWS
Return any overdue books as soon as possible as we need to complete our end-of-the-year inventory. Many thanks.
