College Wear Wednesday is a new event his school year here at KMS. All staff and students are encouraged to wear any college attire. The KMS AVID Committee wanted to create this event to make students more aware of college, said Mr. Segura.

Principal, Margaret Nichols, stated, “We came up with this idea to promote a college-going culture at our school.” She added that it is a great way to start conversations about different colleges. “Some KMS students already know where they want to go to college, so they are wearing that school’s shirt,” she said.

Mrs. Nichols said she visits many colleges and every time she does she gets a shirt from that college to wear on Wednesday. Mrs. Kismet, Vice Principal, also said she will be taking pictures of students wearing college attire every Wednesday. She also said that she would give the students Lion Pride Cards for wearing college wear.  This announcement has also been placed in the morning announcements for students to be aware that every Wednesday is College Wear Wednesday.

Not all students have college clothing to wear to school. To help those students, the KMS Student Council voted to create College T-shirts. Several California colleges were selected and several top sports schools were also selected. These T-shirts can be bought for $10 during break or lunch from Mrs. Delgado in RM 703 on Mondays and Tuesdays. There is also going to be a student store and students can purchase a shirt using Lion Pride Cards.

A KMS student, Ennovy Hernandez, talked about this school-wide activity “It’s very fun and I love to show spirit,” she said. Ennovy also stated that she likes how teachers are wearing T-shirts from colleges all over the U.S. and that they all have a college flag hanging outside their classroom. “I dress in different college attire every Wednesday, like UCLA and Fresno State,” Ennovy said. She also mentioned that this is an amazing opportunity for students to branch out and show the school what college they want to go to.
