    In sports news

    The 7th grade volleyball team had a spectacular match against Eisenhower they dominated the first 2 matches with great teamwork to give us another win. Play of the night- Leila Hosn set it to Alexa and then she did an amazing spike! Bump, set, spike it that’s the way we like it uh! So far your 7th grade team is undefeated, come out to see us at our home game next Thursday.

    The 8th grade volleyball team had a good match against Eisenhower last night winning 2 out of the 3 games.
    Savanna Cox again was a force in the front row, scoring many points at one stretch.
    Mimi Currah and Kaine Marcinkowski were consistent with their serves with good placements.
    Ana Scott had some very nice spikes down the line.
    Reina Perez played hard and hustled in defense.
    The team will play Olympic View at home next Thursday.
    Come support your Knights.

    The 7th grade boys basketball team met a talented Eisenhower squad in the Kellogg gym last night.  Our boys started slow and found themselves down by 13 in the 2nd quarter and with the help of a big 3 from Bobby, 10 at the end of the half.  Your Knights came out in the 3rd quarter with an aggressive defensive resolve to fight back to within 3 at the end of 3.  In a back and forth 4th quarter with the help of a 3 point bomb from Alex and  a driving contested shot in the lane with 2 icy free throws from Elijah our boys pulled even and forced overtime.  Defensive stops and smart play was the difference in the overtime win .  Everyone contributed with Jordan and Connor’s defense, Elijah leading all scorers, LJ, Elijah and Daryl leading all rebounders.
     Terrific win Boys!!!!!  GOOOO!!!  Knights!!!

    The big question going into the Knights 8th grade boys basketball yesterday was whether or not the team would maintain the focus, energy, and hard nosed defense required for their 2nd game in 2 days after a big win over Meadowdale the previous day.
    Eisenhower came to Kellogg looking to pull an upset on the Knights and came out ready to play in what was a competitive first quarter before the Knights with their team depth ,wore down the visitors from the North ,in pulling away for a comfortable win.
    Hayden played his best game of the young season and along with Mark provided some excellent shooting, Sam and Amdane provided some  good 4th quarter play while Desmond and Marcus provided that needed leadership with their solid play.  Everyone contributed and it was another solid performance by the team.
    Also, great win by  the 7th graders! You showed great determination and heart in your come from behind win! Way to stay together and keep fighting!

    Students - One of things that is important to us at Kellogg is that all students feel recognized when they do a good job, or when they have tried their best to accomplish something, or when they have taken time to help another student in need. One of the ways we recognize students is with our student of the month celebration called KNIGHTS. Another way is with our quarterly recognitions for students who have shown VALOR or who have performing well academically. Some folks would like to come around to Tutorial classes on Friday to congratulate some students who were nominated this first quarter by teachers. Any student can be recognized and receive a certificate. All you need to is bring your best self to school every day, be a hardworking learner, ask questions, help others, and your teachers will notice. We look forward to sharing this first quarter’s certificates with you in Tutorials on Friday.

    Students and Staff!  Tonight is the Night!  Kellogg Night at the Shorecrest Boys Basketball game!  Tip off is at 7:15.   Tickets are $6.00.  If you’re with an adult, tickets are $3.00.  Come out and show your Kellogg Pride!  Did you know too, that 8th grader, Alexandra Garcia-Ortiz has been chosen to sing the National Anthem at the Varsity boys game!

    7th graders:  Is your lunch break just a little too loud and overwhelming?  Are you looking for a place to spend some quiet time, to calm your mind for just a bit in the middle of the school day?  Are you interested in how a little Mindfulness each week could help you focus at school?  Each Wednesday during 7th grade lunch we are offering a space for students to get a little calm from the storm.   Join us in the Family Center (across from the office). Plan to bring your lunch in the room and stay for the whole time. Talk to Senora Soares if you have questions!


    It is with great excitement that I would like to announce our theme for December: GIVING SELFLESSLY.  You can give your time, thanks,  objects, energy and most importantly, your positivity.  Sometimes giving a smile or a complement can change the tone of someone’s whole day.

  • Tutors for Spanish Class

    Starting Wednesday, December 7th there will be tutoring for Spanish students in the library.  The tutors are former Kellogg students who are now advanced Spanish students at Shorecrest and started the program last year.  It was VERY beneficial for those students who took advantage of this extra help.  The tutors are excellent and can help with homework, studying for tests and , generally, understanding material with which they are having trouble.  Students need to sign in with Hangtime first, and then proceed to the library.  They may take the Hangtime bus home.  For questions, please contact Ms. Maira Rusis
