KHS POOL - MAKING A SPLASH
Once piece of construction at the new Kearney High School continues to excite community members...the new pool. Perhaps because the pool is new to our school or perhaps because of the possibilities it brings, this addition has everyone talking.
The competition pool is 75’ x 60’. It is 4’ deep at the shallow end, and 14’ deep at the diving well. There are 8 lanes in the pool, and it will hold approximately 300,000 gallons of water. The natatorium, or pool facility, can seat 378 Bearcat fans. There will be additional seating on the pool deck for 260 competitors.
KPS RECEIVES PRESCHOOL GRANT
Kearney Public Schools is happy to announce the acquisition of a Sixpence Expansion Grant for preschool programming. The grant of $118,171 and $25,000 Startup is for 2015-16 school year. According to Associate Superintendent Carol Renner, the grant will allow KPS to open a second toddler program that will serve children ages 18 months to 2.5 years. The new toddler program will operate in a year-round format going Monday through Friday from 8am to 3:30pm. “This is a wonderful step forward to build the strongest learning foundation for some of our students at risk,” said Renner. For the toddler program, students are selected based on criteria such as poverty, second language, teen parent, premature birth. Applications can be found at kearneypublicschools.org.
