A simple email to Thornapple Kellogg High School from a man working on an oil rig in Texas reminds us all of how far kindness spreads even if we never know it.

Encouraging and developing the greatest potential of each student
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.
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.”
TK bragging rights are one the line in the annual Battle of the Buildings Nov. 13. Members from each building within the district will compete in fun (and sometimes goofy) basketball competitions.
