The Lady Kings softball team (2-4) will be facing off against the Sitka Wolves (2-4) tonight at 6:00, and tomorrow afternoon at 4:00 and 6:00. Kayhi went 1-2 with Sitka in their last series, with the losses being their two conference games of the weekend.
The senior cruise will take place directly after the graduation ceremony on June third. Students are asked to pay $20 to contribute to the event. Allen Marine Tours has donated a boat to take all participants to George Inlet Lodge for food, games, prizes, and surprises which will last until 2 or 3 a.m. Seniors are mandated to stay the night at the lodge unless a parent picks them up. The following morning, all seniors will be transported by bus to the Coast Guard base for breakfast, and vans will transport everyone to their vehicles afterward.
Cruise director Gail Klein said that the goal of the cruise is for all the seniors to have one last celebration together before parting ways.
“We want it to be inclusive, we want students to have a great time,” said Klein. “We want to make sure that they get to celebrate together and spend this last time with their friends, sometimes people say that after graduation they never saw classmates again because of work schedules or whatever, so we really want them to have this chance to celebrate together.”
Gail Klein will be in the senior hall at lunch today as well as next week to collect the $20, checks can be made to “Kayhi Graduation Party”.
