Buddy Breakfast is on Friday, February 9, 2018, in the Kennedy cafeteria from 7:30am-8:15am and we can’t wait to see you!

Each Kennedy student is invited to bring a “Buddy” (parent, Grandparent, relative or adult friend) to visit our school. A continental breakfast will be provided by donations from Kennedy’s Family School Organization (FSO), teachers/staff, volunteer bakers, and local businesses.

When students are finished eating, they are welcome to head to their classrooms if they are supervised by an adult family member. Students who are not supervised will need to remain in the cafeteria until 8:05am and are not allowed to be in classrooms prior to this time due to safety/supervision reasons.

Thank you to all the families who volunteered to donate baked goods. Please drop off your breakfast items at Kennedy before the end of the school day on Thursday, February 8, 2018.

On Thursday, February 15th students in 5K-5th grade will be released early at 11:50 a.m. There is no 4K this day. Please click on the link below to complete and submit the Early Release Survey to indicate your student’s after-school plans for this day. We ask that you complete the survey no later than Tuesday, February 13th so staff can properly plan dismissal for that day. If your family does not complete the survey, your student will be sent home following his/her traditional after-school plans.

The Grafton Nutrition Services Department offers bag lunches for students on early release days, whether they are going to child care or heading home. Use this link to order a bag lunch: https://goo.gl/forms/7ZRFqvuidSRfUrnA3.

If you have any questions, please contact the Kennedy front office. 

Thank you for your cooperation!

"Sometimes in life, we are faced with unexpected challenges that are difficult to understand and even harder to overcome.  It is in those times of confusion where leaning on others is the only way to get through.  We just wanted to express our sincere gratitude to each and everyone of you.  Thank you for being a ray of hope in a dark and difficult time.  Your kindness means so very much and will never be forgotten."  Marie & Harper Nawrocki
