Seniors Gather Early for Last First Day

The last first day of school.
Thornapple Kellogg High School seniors gathered before sunrise on the football field to watch the sun come up on their last first day of school and get the year off to a good start. Many will continue on to colleges or universities beyond high school, but this experience of sharing their last first day with their classmates will be one they say they’ll always remember.

TKHS Tennis Coach Selected for Coaches Hall of Fame

Free and Reduced Lunch Applications

Many families will see changes in school meals this fall as families MUST apply this year for free and reduced lunches. Schools had some flexibility during COVID and at TK we were able to serve all kids free meals.  Those options have expired so we are unable to serve all meals free for the 22-23 school year.   Instead, we are required to collect free and reduced applications, as we did prior to COVID waivers.  Schools will take applications and use family income to qualify kids for free, reduce-price, or paid meals.
