Transferring Google Drive Files

If you are a senior or a student leaving KHS at the end of the school year, please be aware that your district Google Drive account will be deleted at some point. Luckily it is easy to export files from Drive to a computer or another non-district Google account. Here are directions on how you can do that.

There is also a Google service called Transferhttps://takeout.google.com/transfer?pli=1

Here is a video that shows how it works

Hilanders Rising to the Top

Congratulations to Kimberly Pacheco, Miah Montgomery and Aaron Laferty for representing KHS and placing in the U.S. Congressional Art Competition.

Each year, the judges view the entries from all high schools in Southwest Washington. Three are chosen to represent high school art from our 3rd Congressional District. Kimberly placed 2nd and Miah and Aaron tied for 3rd place. Their art will be displayed in the Congresswoman’s office for one year. All three artists  will receive awards at the Congressional reception in Vancouver later this month.

The three pieces of art from KHS will be displayed in the Congresswoman’s office during the next year.


It has been another amazing music year for our Kelso High School students.   Above is this year’s musician that qualified for state WIAA competition.  In total, there were twenty-nine band, choir, and orchestra students that competed at Central Washington University.  Senior Isaac Ford placed 2nd in State on his String Bass solo, and all of our other students received I – Superior or II – Excellent ratings.

Congratulations to our teachers – Daniel Hartley, Colin Cossi, Josef Ward and Chris Wurst.  Thank you for the impact you make daily in the lives of Kelso students.


Our DECA students participated in a DECA Fall Leadership conference in Bellevue where they participated in a food, toy and clothing drive and a Miracle Minute. Also we give a  huge shout out to our very own Sammy Murray, who is a DECA state officer and had a huge part in running the conference. She was up on stage multiple times in front of 1,400 people and spoke. She did an excellent job!


Listen to our Theatre Club share on Metroscope.


We had nine students send in audition tapes for the Western International Band Clinic honor bands and three of our students were accepted!  They will participate in the honor bands on the weekend of November 16th – 19th in Seattle.
