On Tuesday, the junior girls basketball team won 49-29 against Athena, and the boys 54-16 against Athena.

Wednesday, KISH staff had a potluck at lunch with food provided by parents and student council. Staff was very thankful and deserving. In the evening the gym was packed with basketball practices.

Thursday, Student Council had a morning MO-MO where a video was shown. In it KISH students said what they appreciate about the KISH staff. There were also representatives from several universities that stopped in to give information to senior high students.
