Put on your costumes and join us for a fun afternoon on Saturday Nov 4th from 3pm to 5pm at Kennedy The festival will have old favorites like Cookie Decorating, Music by the Campfire, Popcorn and Movies, Pumpkin Bowling and Bat-sketball.  And new this year… a Monster Bake Walk, Silent Auction and Pirates!  And for the hungry goblins, there will be hot dogs and snacks available at the concession stand or stroll down to John’s Pizza after 5pm for dinner where a portion of food sales will go to Kennedy FSO, just tell them we sent you.

Thank you! Kennedy FSO

Winter Weather Wear

posted Nov 2, 2017, 7:53 AM by Jamie Koehler

The weather is getting colder, and students are getting cold when they are at recess.  For your child's health and safety, please help him/her dress appropriately for winter weather conditions. Coats are required until the outdoor temperature reaches 60 degrees.  Boots, hats/hoods, gloves, and snowpants (K-2) are required to play during the winter months whenever snow is visible on the ground.  3rd-5th graders do not need to wear snowpants, but are required to wear boots or they will have a blacktop only recess.  During the lunch recess period, students are playing outside for up to 30 minutes, therefore it is very important for them to dress warmly.

LEGO League

Students and parent coaches can register for the 2017-18 LEGO League Jr. season now through Nov. 3. The registration fee is $20. Click here for information about how to register. Teams will be announced at the end of November. The coach determines the meeting day, time, and location. Your child’s coach will contact you in December to find a day/time that works for the team. If your child can’t attend on the chosen day/time, we will make every effort to move your child to another team.

A parent information session will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 17 from 6:30 - 7:30 in the Grafton Elementary School Library. Parents will learn more about LEGO League and how to register their child.

The Grafton LEGO League is a district-wide, hands-on program that engages children through experimentation and a culture of sharing and learning from others. It goes beyond just “playing with LEGOs”.  After a 12-week program that includes research, building and computer programming, teams have the opportunity to showcase their project at the Grafton LEGO Expo on April 14.
