NHS Donates Toys to Children's Hospital

The TKHS National Honor Society toy drive for Helen DeVos Children's Hospital was a huge success. Several handmade blankets, piles of coloring books, numerous boxes of crayons and colored pencils, dolls, toys and games will all help lift the spirits of young patients while they stay at the hospital. Pictured are NHS officers Reese Verlinde, Annabelle Rickert, Ellie Rogers, and Caedon Zube.
TKHS students collected food items to donate to Barry County United  Way.

TK Students Donate Food to United Way

Even in these difficult times, TK students and this TK community showed overwhelming generosity again! TKHS Student Council conducted a food drive recently with all items to be donated to Barry County United Way or the local food pantries in Barry County. In one week, students brought in 1,892 food items and donated $1,295.45 in cash.


A message from High School Principal Tony Petersen

Thornapple Kellogg High School
Welcome to Thornapple Kellogg High School!
This is a great building filled with TK pride! Our staff wants our students to enjoy school and have fun, while at the same time being challenged with a rigorous curriculum, a balanced offering of elective classes, and a variety of extracurricular options. The TKHS staff, in cooperation with students, parents and the TK community, are committed to enabling every child to achieve his or her greatest potential.
We will give students tools they need to be successful once they graduate from TKHS - whether they are going into the workforce, attending a trade school, or moving on to college. We offer Advanced Placement Courses, dual-credit courses, and strong offerings in business, computer science, physical education, fine arts, and vocational areas. We teach and develop leadership skills, provide many opportunities for community service, and create an environment of helping others.
As soon as students enter high school, they become part of a TKHS family. Our staff builds positive relationships with students through our family settings and our focus on teaching and rewarding positive behavior. 
We value and look forward to family and community support in all areas. Please stop in and see us soon!
