A Look Back on This Year

The 2016-17 school year is coming to a close, the seniors are leaving and a new class is moving up. We have had a lot of accomplishments during this school year and it is time to show some recognition to those that have succeeded.

In August, the boys’ and girls’ KHS soccer teams kicked off their fall season, as well as the girls’ volleyball teams. The boys’ football teams also started off the 2016 season strong. The last Friday of the month was the boys’ varsity football homecoming game, and the burning of the K. The entire homecoming experience was a very exciting experience for the new freshmen.

In October, Kuna wrestling began  and the National FFA Convention kicked off in Indianapolis, Indiana. The boy’s soccer team made it to districts and finished out the season with a 4-8-1 record. The girls’ varsity volleyball finished with a record of 3-1. The girls’ varsity soccer team ended their season with a record of 5-7-1. The varsity football team concluded their season with a record of 4-6. In early November, a Harvest Dance was put on by the Ag Department, prompting girls to ask guys to the dance.  Both girls’ and boys’ basketball and KHS wrestling began their seasons.

In December, a choir and orchestra concert was put on to spread holiday cheer.  Christmas break began on December 21 and was expected to end on January 3rd. Unfortunately, Mother Nature had other plans, and students were kept home five consecutive days due to unsafe road conditions. Classes finally resumed on January 11.

Soon after school was resumed, it was homecoming week yet again. That week was extra special because Kuna High School was trying to raise money to send a young girl named Bethany to Disney World with the Make-A-Wish Foundation.Students did this by selling Mickey Mouse ears and personalized Wish stars for $1. Bethany was invited to the homecoming assembly to be shown the tremendous support she deserves. The homecoming dance was on Saturday, January 27th.

In February, the Kuna choir put on a lovely show in preparation for the festival the next weekend. The girls’ varsity basketball finished out the season in with a 8-11 record. The boys’ varsity basketball team ended their season with a record of 4-18.

In early March, a Daddy-Daughter Dance was hosted by HOSA, making a fun night for fathers and daughters. Boy’s and girl’s baseball  and tennis hit it off.. Additionally, from March 9-11,  Bus Professions of America  and Tech Students America State Leadership Conventions were held. On April 11 the juniors had SAT testing while the lucky freshmen went on a college field trip. Prom was held on Saturday, April 19. On the 27th an assembly was held for election speeches by the candidates running for positions on the student council.

Overall, this school year will certainly be one to be remembered. KHS helped send a little girl to Disney World, while having fun. All fall, winter, and spring sports did great in their seasons. This year has been a success, and we can’t wait for the years to come!
