As most of have heard, the snow in Buffalo, New York has reached an astonishing 8 feet of snow in just 3 days! Lake-effect snow is forecast to bring an additional 3 feet of snow to the Buffalo area on Thursday and Friday. This snowfall, according to the National Weather Service, has reached an all-time national record for snowfall in 24 hours, around 76 inches. The question is do you think that the Geauga area will get as much snow as last year; and if our winter will be as rough as it has been? We are all counting on snowdays this year, but when do you think the first one will be? Emily Powell said, "I think our first snowday could be on December 12th." As harsh as this past week has been, we expect to get colder weather and more snow coming in. So with all that said, let's hope we get a snowday soon!
There are only a few days left before Thanksgiving. Everybody is excited to travel with the family, to see the relatives and excited for the meals. But remember, there are families that cannot do this. Please donate any non-perishable food. Let's help out the Thanksgiving of these families! "It's a nice time to be with the family, and help others," said Hunter Kuhen.

We are very happy to announce we have a new sponsor, 2005 Kenston Graduate Jim Gable.
Jim attended Kenston from 5th grade through 12th and graduated in 2005. His favorite memories of Kenston are attending the Kenston High School football games and hearing Mr. Marein cheering from the stands. Jim was a KHS Web Builder and showed a lot of love and dedication for our site while he was a student here. He completed his senior project with the Bainbridge Police Department and gained a life-long respect for the services they provide. "Those guys do an awesome job and are a big part of why Bainbridge is such a great community to live in," Jim said in an email.
We owe our freedom to our veterans. It was World War II and Joe Wilkinson had a duty to his country. He became a bomb mechanic. He worked out of England where he would inspect and ready the bombs before they went over Nazi occupied Europe, but before the war he met who he would later marry, a real life Rosie the Riveter.
This fall our Kenston Center Stage is putting on three different short productions: “This Is a Test,” “Uncool,” and “Us and Them.” Mr. Hoffman, a veteran producer for KCS, imposed a new three short production system to the fall production. Instead of one long play, three separate mini productions will be separated by intermissions—with a different story for each piece. Johnny Coming, senior actor in the fall and spring productions, said, “This production is a lot more exciting for us actors. With having three completely different plays, we have to play many different parts. It keeps us on our toes.”
"It went by so fast. It feels like yesterday my dad and I went to my first Cub Scout camp. None of this would've happened without many others. My mom is the one who got me into scouting. She was my pack leader all the way through cub scouts. Without her I never would have found scouting. Both of my parents pushed me all the way through and helped me through the frustrating parts. There were times when I wasn't sure I wanted to continue on with scouting but they urged me not to leave. Without my parents I wouldn't have been able to do this on my own," said Eagle Scout Jonathan Wiegand.

On Wednesday, October 22, 2014 Fox 8 News made an appearance at Kenston High School with their camera crew and Ronald McDonald. Kenston has won the Cool School of the Week award presented my McDonalds. Ronald and the Fox 8 crew arrived at Kenston High School during 3rd block and took videos of students in class rooms, showing what makes our school so cool.
