Many organizations from Kilgore High School participated in the weekend’s KilGogh Arts Festival: The KHS Art Department displayed many outstanding art pieces. KHS Theater students helped in setup and VANGO-bingo, facepainting and more. The KHS softball team made balloon animals for the kids, and the KHS Future Hispanic Leaders helped young artists make cascarones, which are eggshells filled with confetti and then decorated. Students from the KHS Orchestra helped entertain the festival-goers with live music, and KHS Hi-Steppers also performed for the crowd. Thanks to all the students (and instructors) for your help in making Kilgore a great place to enjoy art.

The Annual Migration of Kindergarteners to the Caldwell Zoo in Tyler has begun. Every year, students, teachers and parents don their colorful class shirts and journey to Tyler to experience animals up close and personal. The beautiful weather will make these field trips even more enjoyable.

The community will have a chance to view KHS' One Act Play, “White Room of My Remembering,” on April 11 and 13 at 7 p.m. each night at the KHS Auditorium. The students performed the play in the UIL One Act Play contest a few weeks ago. The play won alternate for bi-district. Brandon Fugler received All Star Cast and Jackson Mauldin and Bailey Green received honorable mention for All Star Cast. Sarah Digilormo received Outstanding Crew. Congrats to these hardworking actors and crew.

Testing season is upon us once again. Most of our campuses are currently involved in end-of-the-year STARR tests and are working very hard to finish with excellence. Let’s all support them in their efforts. Good Luck!
