“If you’re shy, we’ll teach you how to love speaking up! If you already like public speaking, we’ll help increase your vocabulary and
channel your creative energy,” enthuses Ms. Turbeville, team coach.
KMS WRESTLING TEAM – Girls and boys interested in joining the wrestling team, please see Mr. Yamagata, K103, for more information.
“Just come out and have fun,” urges coach Yamagata!
