Wear Your NEW Kennedy T-Shirt TOMORROW!

posted Sep 13, 2018, 9:48 AM by Jamie Koehler

Your child brought home a new blue t-shirt with the slogan, "United as one, learning together," on the front of it.

All students and staff members should plan to wear these new blue t-shirts on Friday, September 14, 2018 as we are planning  to have  an all school picture taken of students and staff.

The all-school photograph is scheduled to occur at 10 a.m. in the back of the school. I realize that afternoon 4K children will not be in session at this time. For this reason, I invite parents and families of afternoon 4K children to briefly come to Kennedy at 9:45 a.m. so that they can also be included in this photo, while you accompany them.

I would like you to consider joining this fun and entertaining singing group at Kennedy. The choir includes all fourth and fifth grade students with a love of singing and performing. No auditions necessary.

The "G" Group is designed to provide a vocal/choral experience with more challenging music, solo opportunities, dancing opportunities and most importantly a worthwhile community service.
