KHSCD will host it’s 2nd. Annual “Giving Tree” Holiday Drive for KHSCD students in need over the holidays. Students who take part are assigned a number and the number is put on the ornament, for anonymity. KHSCD staff will select an ornament that represents a KHSCD student and buy for that student. Parents/Guardians, if you would like your child to be a recipient, forms are available in Student Services. Parent signature is required and the forms are due back no later than Thurs. Dec. 8 so that teachers have time to shop. Parents/Guardians are asked to pick up the gifts between 7am-3:30pm on Dec. 19-20. If you have questions, please call Student Services at 919-217-5400.
