Elected by the student body last spring, the 23 students on the Kelso High School Associated Student Body (ASB) have big plans for uplifting and energizing the school’s atmosphere. In addition to working with all school clubs to support their activities, the leadership team will also be promoting better attendance through rewarding students each trimester who meet the requirements and starting up a program called We Dine Together, which battles student loneliness.
“Overall, our goal is to promote unity, spirit and Kelso Pride,” said ASB President, Zoe Prothero. “We are also really excited to reintroduce Mr. Kelso and are now searching for sponsors for the student participants.” Mr. Kelso is a fun male pageant event with part of the proceeds going to charity.
“Throughout the year, our team looks for different ways to boost spirit: pep assemblies, lunchtime activities, giveaways for good behavior,” said Adviser Megan Thomas. “If you ever visit Kelso High School you will know – WE ARE KELSO.”
Every day, a crew of 43 ladies working in 10 schools serve up two full meals for the students in Kelso School District. Some of them arrive as early as 5:15 to prepare breakfast and get ready to greet “their kids,” as they affectionately refer to the students they serve.
More than calories on a plate, a lot of love and care goes into every meal of the nearly 659,000 meals served during the school year. Monthly menus are planned two months out, and a nutritional analysis is done for every single meal.
When asked what the best part of the job is, Food Service Supervisor Vivien Basom said, “Being here for the kids, giving them an encouraging smile and, when they need it, a hug. We build relationships with these kids and we genuinely care about them.”
- Kelso is a nut-free district due to food sensitivities
- All food for meals must be grown and purchased in the U.S. as part of the Buy American provision
