WIAA Blog: "What it Means to Be a Hilander"

Senior Loryn Musgrove, who represents Kelso on the WIAA LEAP Committee, published a blog article on, "What it Means to be a Hilander". This is a great read, full of Kelso pride. Thanks for representing Kelso in such a positive light Loryn!

"Like opening the front doors of the school for the first time, putting on that Kelso jersey makes you want to play for everyone in the entire Kelso community. When you put on the blue and gold, you don’t play for yourself. You play for your coaches, your teammates, your family, the community, younger kids who look up to you, past generations who have worn those jersey’s before you… there’s just nothing like it anywhere else." - See more here.


No Early Release on May 20th

Please be advised that, due to mandatory State testing, there is NO Wednesday Early Release on May 20, 2015.
