  • Friday February 2nd Mme Havlin's KFHS French students celebrated French groundhog day with the traditional meal of round, golden crêpes or thin pancakes with various toppings.  The French, like Americans, use this day to reflect on the passing of winter and look forward to upcoming spring warm weather and sun.  For good luck and prosperity they flip a crêpe, catching it.  


  • HBCU Band Recruitment Event


  • The IB CAS/TOK courses collaborated with Mr Riddick's agriculture class to talk about respectful disagreement and healthy change.  Mr. Riddick was a guest speaker who addressed the group about facing adversity and succeeding in bringing systemic change to an organization.  The students worked in small, mixed groups, using a graphic organizer (about vision, strengths/allies, opportunities/dreams and obstacles to overcome) to have both structured (protocols) and unstructured conversation about succeeding in achieving their goal of a more perfect school.  They made connections with club leaders and others with similar visions, and took risks expressing their opinions in an unfamiliar group.
    Many thanks to Mr. Riddick for his example and his wisdom.

  • The Holiday Door Decorating Contest was a fun diversion the week before winter break.  The students were showing off their creativity!


  • Students in Ms Rhodes' Art 1 class are creating works of art for the Sister Cities Art Show/Contest. Students were given the theme "Climate Scape: Resilient Cities for Tomorrow's Climate" and then had to create a 2D project based on the theme. They explored climate change and researched how cities are trying to combat its effects. They then brainstormed what they could create for their project piece and went to work with their choice of materials.

     

  • On November 29, 2023 select Art students participated in a visiting artist workshop taught by Virginia Museum of Fine Art artist Leigh Anne Chambers. This workshop was sponsored by the Suffolk Art League, which supports art education within the City of Suffolk. Students talked about the elements and principles of art and learned abstract painting techniques, then put them into action to create adventurous artworks. The event culminated in a critique where students discussed their inspirations, challenges, and successes, and peers provided feedback and encouragement for future artmaking.


  • Students in Theatre I working on inspo/mood boards for their Tech Theatre projects. Each group had to pick a unique theme or concept for the play "Alice in wonderland" and then create a poster that takes inspiration from that theme.


  • Students have been making inferences in Mrs. Brown's English class this week, and they worked on a murder mystery today. They worked in groups looking at clues and making inferences to solve the mystery. Each member of the group had a different task: some kept track of character details, some managed the timeline, and some identified red herrings in the clues. They then had to bring their information together and discuss to solve the mystery.

  • KFHS French students traveled to Norfolk to experience francophone art and cuisine.  With a guided tour and art making session at the Chrysler Museum, students also took in the vibrant street art of the Neon District and enjoyed a croissant and lunch while meeting the bakery owner of La Brioche Bakery on Granby Street. It was a first for many, but certainly not the last!


Oceanography Field Trip to VA Beach

  • On October 19th, KFHS Oceanography students went to Little Island Park in Virginia Beach.  Students participated in a 'meaningful watershed experience' in which they rotated through six stations that included:  1) Taking a seine net in the water to collect animal samples; 2) Measuring the change in the beach elevation to create a profile of the beach; 3) Analyzing sand samples from different parts of the beach; 4) Observing density and changes in vegetation in the beach environment; 5) Recording wave and weather measurements; and 6) Studing the water quality.   Samples and data collected on the trip will be used for further analysis in subsequent classroom lessons and activities.
