Kapaun Mt. Carmel Catholic High School

Grandparents Day

Grandparents Day 2016 was a great time had by all!  We had 450 grandparents in attendance, and your grandchildren are still buzzing about it!  It was a morning full of love and laughter.  Special thanks to the KMC Parents Club for the reception and delicious treats!

The link to the video that were shown during the morning’s festivities can be found HERE.  Watch the videos with your grandchildren next time you're together!

We have also uploaded our pictures from the mornings festivities.  Click HERE to check out the photos!  

Special thanks also go to: Textron Aviation for providing their parking lot for the shuttle; Premier Food Services for the donated coffee; Kansas Photo Booths for the fun photo booth pictures; Catholic Care Center for the 5 foster grandparents (who were paired with students who didn’t have a grandparent in attendance); and the KMC Band, Madrigals, Cheerleaders and Student Ambassadors who really added pep to the morning.

Lastly, some have asked how they can help our students and the school with the KMC Crusader Annual Fund.  This year, we are asking: What’s Your Crusade?  What is your passion? What is your grandchild’s passion? Now more than ever, as a donor of your time and resources, you want to be sure that it’s making a difference and that every dollar counts.  Starting this year, you can direct your dollars to a specific area - Education, Formation or Total Person.  You can also designate your gift to “wherever the school needs it most.”  Your gift to the Crusader Annual Fund covers areas of our school not funded by parish stewardship and fees.  It supports every aspect of student life from academics, arts, athletics, faculty and technology to security and campus improvements.  If you feel compelled to help us, feel free to return your donation envelopes given out that morning or donate online at www.kapaun.org.  We are already looking forward to the next Grandparents Day!
