KMS 2016-17 Teacher of the Year
We would like to congratulate Mr. Joe Calhoun for being recognized as Kountze Middle School’s teacher of the year for 2016-17. Mr. Calhoun has demonstrated professionalism in and out of the classroom. Students in our district seek advice and mentoring from Coach Calhoun. He is also the campus leader in our anti-bulling campaign and the KMS Bully Club sponsor. We have found that students who move on to high school will come back to seek advice from Mr. Calhoun. It is his serious dedication inside and out of the classroom that has helped Mr. Calhoun earn the respect and admiration of his students and colleagues. Again, it is with great honor that we recognize Mr. Joe Calhoun as the Kountze Middle School teacher of the year.

Positive News is Always Good News
The TGCA has a fantastic article about last school year’s Play4Kay program hosted by our middle school girls’ basketball players. The article highlights the efforts Coach Mattox and our girls put forth in the fundraising and promoting of a positive cancer awareness program. We want to further recognize coach Mattox and her girls for their contributions and support of cancer survivors and our community as a whole. With staff and students like these, we will continue to gain state and national recognition for our positive efforts.
Please take the time to read the article as posted in the TGCA newsletter below.
The KMS Aviation Class put their drone to work during the community pep rally. Here are some in-flight images from the bonfire. We also recorded fantastic HD video footage while flying over the crowd. We want to thank out students for manning the drone and recording special community moments like these.

What a view!
Please take the time to review our next step of preventing bullying at any campus level. Our students and staff have added the anti-bullying bystander pledge to our action list. Please feel free to review the pledge and make notes and changes that will benefit our family here at KMS.
Looking at our past will shape our future. Last year was a milestone year for our anti-bullying program at Kountze Middle School. We learned a lot about what our students and community members are expecting from our school. We understand that no program can be perfect, but we also know that simply not working for a goal will always result in failure. I am proud to announce, that this school year, we will again embrace the Kountze Middle School Brave Blue Program. We will continue working towards a bully free campus. In order to do so, we need students to understand what bullying really looks like and what we can do as a family. Our Careers Class will explore the benefits of a bully free society and how to work towards that goal. We ask for your help and moral support as we continue to recognize and reduce the bullying in our community.
