Becky also headed up the canned goods drive that was held over the last two weeks.  Donations were made to the Brown/Keya Paha County Food Bank in Ainsworth.  We were overwhelmed by the amount of canned goods collected at local businesses including Kate’s Hair Care, the Turbine Mart, and Town and Country Market.  Students also participated in the drive by bringing canned goods to school!  Many thanks to all who donated and to Ms. Thornton for delivering our communities donation!

Hour of Code
This week is Computer Science week! To participate, all KPCS students, teachers, and even a few staff members participated in a school-wide hour of code! On Tuesday, 12/6/16 from 1:30-2:37pm we gathered in the high school commons and gym to practice coding – the language of computers. Gamification has made coding fun. It is something people of all ages can do. It teaches skills like problem-solving, grit, and creativity!
