KHS is in need of volunteers to participate as buddies during Special Olympics Feb. 28. Buddies are paired with athletes and spend the day playing games with them. Students should only sign up to be a buddy if they can attend a mandatory training session during homeroom Feb. 21. Special Olympics will take place during periods three, four and academic homeroom, so students who are signing up to be a buddy should plan on receiving excused absences for those classes.

The original deadline to apply to be a buddy was Dec. 14, but it was extended when not enough applications were submitted. The deadline to apply is Jan. 11, but they will continue to accept applications until enough people have signed up. To apply, pick up a form Chris Stumpf’s room in the guidance hall or contact [email protected] with any questions.
