Are you sick and tired of mindlessly perusing through isles searching for clothes and other assorted items that will help you "fit in" with the greater Bainbridge area. Well be sickened no more because the Bomb Squad is blowing up (not literally). There are only seven short days left in the time window to buy from The Bomb Squad, so as a great humanitarian gift to our community, we have decided for a very limited time to accompany a pair of our premium shades with the purchase of anything within our clothes or utility line! Contain yourself Kenston because it gets better, if you buy from The Bomb Squad today, all proceeds will directly go to the local stock holders who have aided the development of Kenston’s business curriculum for years.

This past spring break the Kenston Band and Chorus had the incredible opportunity to visit New York City. The group however met with unfortunate setbacks, as the bus broke down between Pennsylvania and New York. All students and adults had to wait for approximately four hours before the trip could resume. Nevertheless, the trip was an all-around success. The trip provided opportunities for the group that has forever been embedded into their memory. An unforgettable performance of Phantom of the Opera, a music workshop, a view from the top of the Rockefeller Building, a visit the Statue of Liberty and much more mesmerized the Kenston students. It's only a matter of time before the Music students embark on another trip.

On March 25th 2015, students of Kenston High School donated blood for The American Red Cross Association. All students 16 and older were given the chance to donate blood. The students signed up for a time slot and went to the gym. People who attended the blood drive were provided food and drinks afterwards. Many students were happy to eat Chipotle and enjoyed the blood drive. Some venders of the blood drive were Raised and Glazed, Paninis of Chagrin Falls, Steak n Shake, both Subways in Bainbridge, Simply Greek, Chipotles-legacy, Solon Heinen's, Piada, Mazzulos, Gionninis, Angelo's Pizza, Zeppe's Cleveland Pizza Company, Kate's Kitchen, Giant Eagle, Cleveland Pizza Company and Angie's Pizza. Every pint of blood saves 3 lives. This year Kenston collected 130 pints of blood! This was great because we only collected 115 pints last year. Giving blood was a great opportunity for Kenston High School students. Junior Zac Byrnes said, "The blood drive was a great opportunity and Chipotle was a nice touch!"
