KAY honors our veterans

Valentines Vet

The Valentines for Veterans program gave approximately 50 local veterans free admission to the TCHS basketball game on February 13. Handmade valentines and red remembrance poppies were distributed to the military service men and women in attendance. This service project was a combined effort between TCHS & TJH KAY groups and the local VFW Women’s Auxiliary. 






TJH staff appreciation dodgeball tournament


Staff and students cheer on the TJH KAY dodgeball tournament competitors at the TGS gym on December 21.

On December 21, the student body of Trego Grade School showed appreciation to our faculty.   Mackenzie Bliss, Appreciation Director of KAY, wanted to show appreciation to our staff members, so she went to the drawing boards and the KAY Cabinet.

A fog machine, spotlights, posters of the team names made the gymnasium a dodgeball arena.  The crowd was loud by the students rooting for their favorite team, Educators of Pain, LZE (Lance Ziegler Experience), and the Cotton Headed Ninny-Muggins.  Game one was Educators of Pain versus LZE, and ended in an Educators of Pain victory.  Game two, LZE against Cotton Headed Ninny-Muggins with a Ninny-Muggins’ triumph. The final game was Educators of Pain opposing the Cotton Headed Ninny-Muggins and concluded with another Ninny-Muggins’ success.

Toward the end, certificates and medals were handed out. Then, we asked the teachers to face the stage and little bags full of goodies were passed to all staff, but they didn't know why they were standing against the crowd.

The teachers dropped their kids off 30 minutes before the tournament started so they had time to change. In those 30 minutes, we had students fill in letters on poster boards to reveal a secret message.  Finally, we urged the staff to turn and view the stands. On the top row, the secret message spelled out #youmakeusgreat. 

"Today an entire school came together to celebrate and appreciate our faculty and staff," said TJH KAY sponsor, Lindsey Mong.

We, the student body, hope you staff members do feel appreciated.
