CONGRATULATIONS to the Class of 2019!
Last night we watched the Class of 2019 walk the stage for their diplomas and toss their caps into the air at their commencement ceremony. We wish all of our seniors many blessings as they follow their dreams and pursue their goals. Represent Kenston well as you make your mark on the world and always remember, “Bombers Fly Together”!

Remember, your 2018-2019 Yearbook is still in the process of being put together and will take the summer to complete—especially since there are still events happening even after school is out—mainly athletic. For those graduating seniors, you will receive your yearbook this fall by mail if you selected the option for “Senior” yearbook and you checked the box “mail to home” when you placed your order. (The cost of mailing to seniors is covered by Herff Jones.) If you are interested in purchasing the 2018-19 Yearbook, online orders can be made at www.yearbookordercenter.com (order number 2856). Questions: email Mr. Fodor at: justin.fodor@kenstonapps.org
