Last year, UMHS hosted our 7th annual KIN Store for student's. The KIN store gives students the chance to "shop" for not only themselves, but for their family and friends. Items in the store include clothing in all sizes, toys, house-hold goods, and toiletries that have been donated from our community and staff. This year the store was hosted by our Science Department and put together and organized by Mrs. Zeiter-Smith and Ms. Timmsen along with help from students from the AVID classes. These students and teachers spent numerous hours sorting, washing and organizing the store for over 100 students to come and shop. Students come in and fill as many bags as they can, with the only payment required being a smile or two. Over $550.00 worth of prizes were delivered as well in addition to the shopping spree. Mrs. Zeiter-Smith and Ms. Timmsen would like to thank the following in no particular order:
The Science Department for hosting this year
Haley Martinez- for scheduling all of the student shoppers
Taylor Finegan and Emily Messina (adult AVID tutors) for filling out all of the certificates
AVID students, teachers and a handful of TAs for sorting, organizing, folding, decorating E9, and gift wrapping all presents.
Della and the cafeteria crew for baking cookies - so yummy!
Molly Smith and Leadership for making all of the signs
Brijette Bergman for creating the Sign-up Genius
