Clubs

We have a number of clubs on our campus.

Alliance Club—Mr. Justice, Mrs. Skoglund-Cottr, Ms. Mercer, Ms. Maresca

The Alliance Club is a student led club at KMS that focuses on building friendships through understanding and acceptance of all individuals regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, or sexual preferences. We welcome any new faces who wish to be involved with our club. Please contact Ms. Maresca, Mr. Justice, Ms. Mercer or Mrs. Skoglund-Cotter for more information. 

Meeting times: 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month, before school, from 8:30 - 9:15

 Drama Club—Sponsor Ms. Mercer

Drama Club brings students together who share a passion for theater and the performing arts. More importantly, it provides an excellent opportunity for students to express themselves, work together as a team, and develop their acting skills. Drama Club is an actor’s workshop. Students will learn about performance art through creative activities and games, which involve improvisation, voice, expression and movement, role playing, monologue and scene preparation and, ultimately, a performance piece. They will have opportunities to create, perform and respond to one another’s work in a safe, supportive, fun environment. For more information, please contact Ms. Mercer @ 955-6960 or mercerkn@gm.sbac.edu

Meeting times: Second Semester, February through May, Tuesdays and Thursdays after school until 4:30
