Week of November 4, 2019
Join us on Thursday, November 21, 2019, from 6-7 pm in the library if you have an ELD student at Kennedy. This is a chance to meet other families, learn how to help your student with reading, and prepare for upcoming conferences with teachers.
Elective & Club Showcase Night
Astronomy Night - Mark Your Calendars!
The Science Department is hosting our second annual Astronomy Night. Join us on Tuesday, November 12, at 6 pm at the picnic tables in front of the 500 wing by the field. We will have pizza and other treats. Then we will have telescopes out to look at the full moon. Feel free to bring your own telescope as well.
What’s All the Buzz with JUUL & Similar Vape Devices?
A reminder that the end of the first trimester is coming up on Wednesday, November 13. We don’t have a lot of time left, so please encourage your student to get all assignments in, make up late work if the teacher accepts late work, and have your student come to before and/or after school academic help.
Below is a graph based on a report run earlier in the week of current grades. It actually doesn’t look too bad. As a reminder and for those who are new to Kennedy, to qualify for the Honor Roll Breakfast, which is Tuesday, December 3, at 7:15 am in the gym, students must have a 3.75 or higher. We have about 50 students who are close to qualifying (between a 3.60-3.74), so I am hoping the current number will go up by the end of the trimester.
