Project Chimps

Kennesaw Mountain High School is proud to announce our partnership with Project Chimps.

Project Chimps

“After almost 100 years of using chimpanzees for invasive biomedical research in the United States, scientists, politicians, policy-makers and the public all agree: it’s no longer necessary, and chimpanzees deserve retirement in accredited sanctuaries…a “super group” of chimpanzee, nonprofit, philanthropic, and legal experts joined together, and founded Project Chimps in 2014 to provide sanctuary for a majority of the last remaining chimpanzees in private research facilities…(this) 36-acre sanctuary is nestled in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of northern Georgia, and will eventually provide sanctuary for up to 300 chimpanzees.”

Due to our unique partnership, Project Chimps has graciously granted Kennesaw Mountain students unprecedented access to the facility and the wonderful work they do. Students will see firsthand the ethical consequences of biomedical research and the implications and importance of environmental stewardship. We could not be more excited for this unique, real-world learning opportunity. To learn more about Project Chimps please access the following link:

Governor’s Honors Program
2017-2018

The nomination process for the Governor’s Honors Program is currently underway. The Governor’s Honors Program (GHP) is a residential summer instructional program designed to provide high-achieving and artistically talented high school students challenging and enriching educational opportunities not usually available during the regular school year. Rising juniors and seniors in Georgia’s public and private high schools, as well as students enrolled in home school, may be nominated by their teachers.  This year’s program, located at Berry College, will be in session from June 17 through July 14. If the idea of spending four weeks this summer on a college campus, studying in-depth an academic field of interest with outstanding high school and college instructors appeals to you, speak to one of your academic teachers as soon as possible or swing by Room 327 to see Ms. Dye for more information. Potential fine arts candidates should see Mr. Dunn in the Fine Arts Building. The Governor’s Office of Student Achievement provides additional information at the GHP website: https://gosa.georgia.gov/governors-honors-program

 

Club Pictures

Club pictures are going to be taken by the individual clubs. In order for your club to be featured, we need to receive the club photo by October 25th along with the names of those students featured in the club itself.

 

Important Senior
Yearbook Information

Seniors need to CHOOSE their senior photos by September 27th from Lifetouch. Students and Parents need to pick one Formal (with a blue background) and one casual pose they want in the yearbook and then call 800-736-4775 with pose numbers. They will need the session ID and proof numbers from their prints. If they don’t choose a photo, Mrs. Hoover and the lab choose one for the individual.

Baby Photos will be collected by October 4th. No specific size is required. Baby pictures should be clearly identified. An address label with the student's name and address should be placed on the back of the picture. We prefer a digital copy of the baby photo, but if you are unable to scan or send the photo, a physical copy will suffice. Please send the single photo to kmhsyearbookstaff@gmail.com. If you don't get your senior photos taken, your baby photo will not be in the yearbook. Please bring your photos to room 306 and give them to Mrs. Hoover if you can't email them directly.
