Have a few extra hours a week? KWHS is calling for volunteers!
There are students who could use a mentor, copies to be made, bulletin boards that could use sprucing up and we could use your help.  If you are interested in spending a few hours a week at KWHS to help out in the office or in a classroom, we would appreciate the help.   See Office Manager Tiffany Freeman and she will match you with a great opportunity.
