TKHS art students used a skeleton model to create their figure drawings.

Grant Gives Art Students a Skeleton Model

Thornapple Kellogg High School art students were able to capture delicate details in their drawings of skeletons with the help of a life-like skeleton model. The model was purchased by art teacher Tonya Woods thanks to a grant from the Thornapple Area Enrichment Foundation. The skeleton enables students to have an anatomically-correct model for referencing how the bones are all connected, their shapes and positioning. They also can visually inspect how the joints are formed and move.
TKHS students take a minute and thank veterans before heading back to class.

TKHS Students Pay Respect to Veterans

When nearly 1,000 high school students become so quiet you can hear a pin drop, you know something important has their attention. Monday morning’s annual TK and Community Veterans Day program got their attention and their respect for the veterans attending. When a moment of silence was requested for all veterans who never made it home, there wasn’t a sound until two trumpets echoed “Taps.”

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!
