KABMS students performed in the spring play entitled, “You’re Driving Me Crazy!”, which was performed April 21. The students did an incredible job performing in this short, comical play.
“You’re Driving Me Crazy!” is a short comedy play about the following: Most people have some funny stories about learning to drive, and driver’s ed seems to add to the absurdity of this rite of passage. These four scenes take a hilarious look at the world of driver’s ed, especially from the instructor’s perspective. In them, we meet: 1) a nervous teacher who doesn’t seem to know the first thing about driving, 2) a teenage girl who brings some unexpected guests to her first driving class, 3) a teenage boy who’s forced to share a car with his temperamental ex-girlfriend, and 4) a teenage girl who can’t break away from her smartphone long enough to learn how to drive.
KABMS will provide summer school for students who are required and/or recommended for basic skills classes: English, math, social studies, and science.
Also, we have classes offered for those that would like to participate in the following enrichment classes: Fitness Is Fun, Chromebook Games and Building Games, Mad Science 2.0, and Fun and Games.
There is also a KABMS “RULZ” for our incoming 6th grade class to attend for 2 days only. This class will provide expectations for the classroom setting, as well as expectations for each setting throughout the building, and provide students an opportunity to become familiar with building policies and procedures.
Summer School at KABMS will begin May 26 through Thursday, June 9, from 8:00 a.m. until 3:30 p.m.
MAP testing has begun at KABMS and will continue through the middle of May. Please ensure that your child gets plenty of rest, eats a good breakfast, and puts forth their best effort. Results will be available at the beginning of the 2022-2023 school year.
