McKenna's BK

McKenna loves being part of every facet of Bishop Kelly. She is an excellent student who likes to challenge herself in the classroom. She is a member of the Ski and Snowboarding Team, and the Girls Lacrosse team. McKenna is active in the Pep Club, and you can often find her in the stands cheering loud for her fellow Knights. She is also a member of the Outdoor Adventure Club, the Basque Club, and a service club at BK called PATHS that supports students in the Treasure Valley who are experiencing homelessness.

McKenna’s own path to BK started years ago at Saint Joseph’s Catholic school where she attended kindergarten through 8th grade. “I knew the next step for high school was to go to Bishop Kelly. I saw how much my older brother learned and experienced in his four years at BK, and I wanted that too.” McKenna feels like she’s always learning something new, especially in her Theology class. “Learning about your faith, as well as other religions is so important.”

This school year McKenna’s favorite classes are Algebra 2 and Chemistry. “I like to push myself in the classroom, and I know that if it gets too difficult my teachers will always help me to understand and be successful.” Her Algebra 2 teacher, Mr. Godar is one of the many teachers at BK who help McKenna feel supported and cared about. “Mr. Godar connects with students, tells jokes, and celebrates every little thing we have accomplished.” She also appreciates the relationship she has with her counselor Mrs. Gridley, whose kind demeanor is helping her in the classroom, with college preparations, and with staying positive when balancing school, sports, and fun gets stressful.

McKenna is excited to meet future BK Knights who spend the day shadowing at BK, and who attend Information Knight in January. “Incoming students should know that the BK community is supportive and welcoming to all. Balancing classwork and activities outside of school can be challenging, but it is important to remember to do your homework, study, and meet new people in your classes. The teachers will always be there for the extra help you may need, and counselors will meet with you to make sure you are on track. Get the most out of BK by joining clubs and going to games. Lastly, have fun because these 4 years should be memorable!”
