KDHS Auto Expo


With approximately 200 fine and fast vehicles in the Kingsville District High School parking lot, the 10th annual Tech Zone Auto Expo was held on Friday, May 18th. With all proceeds going to the local foodbank, not only was this an opportunity for people in Essex-County to showcase their cars, but also to be charitable. Mr. Osborne, our Automotive Technology Teacher and organizer of the event said, "this was the best show yet with the highest turnout." From Mustangs to Lamborghinis and even a Model T, there was a car to meet everyone's taste! A big thanks goes out to all the staff, students and participants who help make this such a great event year after year!

"Light Up the Night" was the theme and the lights were bright but not as bright as the smiles of the 200 attendees at the KDHS Prom on May 11. New Designs from Kingsville did a beautiful job of transforming the Roma Club into an elegant venue for our Cavs! After a fabulous meal, DJ Kirzy spun the tunes and everyone danced the night away. Prom King Jordyn Lewis and Queen Hannah Nicholson were announced and many awards were given out by the Prom Committee during the evening. A big thanks goes out to Ms. Pucovsky, Ms. Gale and the Prom Committee for their hard work and to Ms Dunn and the foods classes for making all the wonderful desserts. It was an night to be remembered!

Spare Change for Change!


The WE Group of KDHS thinks hard about what little things we can do to make the world a better place for people in need. Over the last two weeks of April, the WE Group held a Coin Drive to raise money in order to build a well in a developing country and provide clean water to those in need. Their motto is "Together WE can save lives." The Cavs heeded the call and together they raised $1200 in two weeks! Winning classes were Ms. Blair's class with  $121.85, Mr. Ingratta's class with $317.31 and in first place  with a very narrow margin, was Mrs. Kawa's class (pictured above) with $341.31 in total. An enormous thank you goes out from WE Group to the whole school for thinking of others! Many lives will change because of our spare change!

Tech Zone's Vin Villa Restoration Project


The Tech Zone has been hard at work restoring the 4000 pound model of Vin Villa which was brought over from Pelee Island  to KDHS. On a trip to the Island, Department Head, Mr. Doey had noticed that the model looked as though it needed repair and things started rolling from that point! Truax Lumber is responsible for the transportation to the school from Pelee Island Winery, and Mr. Daudlin and his construction classes got right to work disassembling the roof and dormer structures. The model of Vin Villa should be ready for display at the Tech Zone Auto Show on Friday, May 18 right here at KDHS, and we can't wait to see this model fully restored to its former glory! Awesome job, Tech Zone!

The Eco Team inspired KDHS for Earth Week on April 16-20 when they held many Eco events for our Cavs. There was the raffle for the adopt the endangered animal, the sale of reusable water bottles, recycle bin toss, litter-less lunches and Blue/Green day on Friday which was also the end of the clothing drive the Eco Team had been holding all week. All donations of clothes went to The Thrift on Mill, and our students donated over 3000 items. Mr. Morphet's Business Leadership class came in first place with 412 items! Thrift on Mill is a not-for-profit organization that gives back to its community as well as taking on global initiatives. Thrift on Mill extends a huge thank-you to all staff and students who donated items. Earth Week ended on Sunday with the Eco Team attending a Tree Planting at The Little River Corridor. 2000 trees were planted and our Cavs lent a hand! What a great way to celebrate Earth Week, by not only giving to our community but by giving back to our beautiful, green world!

Charity Starts at Home!


GLAS members (Girls Leading and Succeeding) have been hard at work weaving sleep mats out of milk bags (as shown above). These mats serve a dual purpose: they keep milk bags out of landfills but they also will keep the less fortunate off the cold, wet ground.  The GLAS team has also been collecting toiletries from the staff and students in order to make hygiene kits for the local teen shelter The Bridge. The kits will then be put into back packs which are being purchased through The Speak Up Grant. Ms. Reiss and the girls are committed to making the lives of others better, and we are proud of all their charitable work here at KDHS!

Students competed against other schools from both boards in Team Building Activities like 'bubble soccer' just to name one.  Ms. Beatty stated that in her opinion, we were robbed of winning the best cheer of the day as our Cavs certainly know a thing or two about cheering. Great enthusiasm was shown by Kait Lea, Matt Lafleur and Tim Bray who added to the good time had by the whole team at the Challenge Cup. Thanks to Ms. Beatty and Ms. Reiss for chaperoning.  Maybe next year, we'll win the cheer!

Dragster Day of Champions


The TechZone was at it again! On a snowy January 16th, the local grade 8 classes from Kingsville Public School, Harrow Public School and Jack Miner Public School attended the Dragster Day of Champions at Kingsville District High School where each school’s top 10 teams competed in a race with dragsters they had created with the help of KDHS Tech Zone Teachers, Mr. Osborne, Mr. Doey, Mr. Daudlin, and their classroom teachers. This was no simple affair, nor did it take only one day! This was a lengthy process. The dragsters were drafted according to detailed specifications at each school and then cut out in the wood shop at KDHS. Dragsters were then decorated by the students at their home schools. The Tech Team from KDHS visited the elementary schools for preliminary races and the winning teams advanced to the final level: The Dragster Day of Champions! These students were treated to a barbecue lunch courtesy of the TechZone at Kingsville District High School and then the races began! This amazing journey of creative and technical accomplishment could only have come from the vision of Mr. Osborne and the hard work of the Tech Department, the Tech students at KDHS, and all the Grade 8 students and teachers from our local elementary schools!

1000 Cranes
Gr. 12 Visual Arts student, Kristyn Wright spent over a month collecting 1000 wishes (each written on construction paper and then folded into an origami crane). 

The inspiration...”An ancient Japanese legend promises that anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish by the gods. Some stories believe you are granted happiness and eternal good luck, instead of just one wish, such as long life or recovery from illness or injury.”

She did this in hopes that a family friend’s young son will recover from a diagnosis of leukemia to live a long and happy life. 

Many students in this very talented group of artists are doing inspiration works as well.

Santa Bops at Migration Hall!

Our own KDHS Dance Crew performed their Christmas swing dance number "Santa Bop" at the Darcy's Annual Christmas Recital in front of a packed house at Migration Hall on December 10th. The team had been practicing this number under the direction of Ms. Darcy for about 5 weeks with impressive results. The "Santa Bop"choreography involved some intricate quick steps as well as precise jumps and leaps by the dancers. Mrs. Gale and Ms. Darcy are very proud of the hard work and dedication these students have shown towards perfecting their moves in such a short amount of time. Our dance team is yet another excellent example of the partnership between our community and KDHS!

Toys for Children's Aid Society


Christmas will come early this year for many children thanks to our generous Cavs! The money raised from the annual Reindeer Run has gone to purchase toys and clothing to support our local families in need. Student Council and the top fundraisers from each grade went shopping for the gifts, purchasing items that will make life a little merrier for many children. Thanks to all who donated; the tradition of giving continues at KDHS!

Cavs Commit to End Violence Against Women
National Day of Remembrance and Action of Violence Against Women

On December 6th, KDHS Cavaliers took a moment not only to remember and reflect on the Polytechnique Massacre of 14 women in 1989, but to take a stance to end violence against all women by wearing white shirts and white pins. Additionally, students and teachers alike aligned themselves to a commitment working towards a future wherein women are treated with respect and violence becomes a thing of the past. A special thanks goes out to The GSA and Ms. Reiss for helping to organize the event.

Goodfellow's Can Drive

KDHS Grade 12 students participated in the annual Goodfellow’s can drive. The day was a tremendous success, as just over 12,300 items were collected for families in need. Everyone that participated should be congratulated on an amazing day! The annual competition between our boys and girls was tightly contested as the boys put up a valiant effort collecting 6,052 items. However, the girls squeaked out a victory with 6,313 items. Great job everyone!

KDHS GSA Visits The Bridge!


Maria Peters (far right), Coordinator of Communications, Public Relations and Fund Development of The Bridge Leamington Youth Resource Centre was pleased to meet with our very own KDHS GSA on November 29. There the GSA was treated to a tour of the facilities which will be available to all young people from the ages of 14-24 in February 2018. The Bridge will be a safe place which will provide teens with resources to help them bridge (hence the name) the gaps they may be experiencing in their lives. There, the GSA saw beautiful new showers, areas for homework, a new kitchen and laundry facilities. Maria Peters expressed that one of her wishes is that The Bridge will help those in need but will also be a place where teens can make new friends which "is one of the greatest gifts anyone can give." The GSA was proud to donate a cheque for $300.00, which came from two years of fundraising, thanks to the generosity of our Cavs. A special thanks goes out to Ms. Heil for organizing this trip! For more information about The Bridge including acquiring Community Service hours and making donations, you can contact Maria Peters at maria@thebridgeyouth.ca.

Winter Concert Highlights Local Talent
On November 30, The Kingsville Family of Schools Winter Concert was a fantastic collaboration between Kingsville Public School's Junior and Senior Bands under Mme Quick, Jack Minor Public School's Jazz Band and Junior and Senior Band under Mrs. Capel-Cure, Harrow Public School's Band under Mrs. Collier and our own Kingsville District High School's Junior and Senior Bands under Dr. Hopper. As a tremendous tribute to young people in the arts, this sold-out event brought the community together to listen to such favorites as Hawaii Five-O, The James Bond Theme and The Tempest. This last piece was performed by all of the bands together. Dr. Hopper was amazed by the efforts of all the students and said it was a fabulous event. The talents of all our students was appreciated by one and all and we look forward to many concerts such as this one in the future!

Anti-Bullying Week


This year, from November 20-24, the GSA chose kind with #ChooseKind as a focus for the week's Anti-bullying events. Monday began with a Kind Words paper chain. Tuesday was an 'erase bullying' pencil giveaway. Wednesday was pink shirt day (pictured above). Thursday was Kind Images with a free movie and popcorn and Friday was a warm cup of hot chocolate for Kind Gestures. The KDHS GSA demonstrated many forms of kindness this week for their school and knows that all of our kind actions make a difference in the lives of others!

GLAS Food Drive a Success!


The GLAS- Girls Leading and Succeeding group, led by their staff sponsor, Ms. Reiss, just wrapped up their food drive for the Snack Program at KDHS. The Cavs showed much generosity by collecting over 500 items that will be used for both breakfast and lunch for any and all students. As it was a homeroom competition, the winning class (Mrs. Kawa's Grade Nines) won ice-cream sundaes! Great job Cavs- what an awesome way to give back to your school!

Crazy Sock Day for Up About Down

by Tara Wright and Sydney Stevenson


Once again, Student Council showed initiative and Cavs responded with their generosity on November 9 with Crazy Sock Day for Down Syndrome. KDHS students wore their most colourful and crazy socks to show their support for World Down Syndrome Awareness. A cookie bake sale led by Prime Minister Kendra Wright and Student Council followed at lunch with all proceeds going to support Windsor Essex County Down Syndrome Association, Up About Down. Student Council raised approximately two-hundred dollars; way to show your support Cavs- you rocked those socks!
