Keep sending in your boxtops! Catalina Kirsch (Class of 2021 parent) is your new Boxtops for Education Coordinator to raise funds for Kennett Middle School Philly Trip 2017. Last collection of the school year will be picked up Fri June 10 for an end-of school year submission! Next collection will be when we are back to school. 
Clipping Box Tops is an easy way to help earn cash for our school. Each one is worth 10¢ for our school! Just look for the pink Box Tops on hundreds of products. All you have to do is clip them and send them to school. Thanks for all the boxtops you have sent in already. There is a collection box in the KMS reception lobby. Clip and drop them off, towards a specific student (7th gr only for now) or for the general fund! Friends and family near and far can collect on behalf of your student. For more information on Box Tops, including a list of participating products, go to Be sure to sign up as a member (it’s free!) so you can check out our school’s earnings details and get access to coupons and bonus offers.  Thanks and Go KMS!

"Space: A Journey to Our Future"

posted Feb 16, 2016, 7:01 AM by Linda Burns

Team 1 students at KMS thrive in our team oriented atmosphere. Our goal is for our students to be able to explore and experience Space, Space Exploration and all its valuable facets as a team through hands on learning. Venturing outside the classroom is key to their success and understanding.

Our students will be working on a collaborative unit made available by NASA, Space: A Journey to Our Future, throughout a few weeks. They will explore space, space exploration and the collaboration of the International Space Station. With the opportunity our students have in attending the Portland Science Center’s exhibit by NASA, Space: A Journey to Our Future, our students will interact with an exhibit that will complement their classroom learning seamlessly. They will learn about the various technologies, discoveries and scientists that make space exploration possible.

Donations will enhance and augment our students learning through the "Space: A Journey to Our Future" exhibit. Knowledge gained in the classroom will be connected to the experience of visiting the Portland Science Center, a meaningful out of school activity. Many of our students rarely leave the valley, much less the state. It is invaluable for them to experience other parts of New England.

Please consider donating:
