Week of November 11, 2019
No School Reminder
New Cafeteria Window Opening
Last year students shared a lot of feedback with me about the cafeteria food, so I reached out to our District nutrition leads and they listened. As a result, a group of Kennedy students got to share student feedback, take pictures of food, etc. The results were shared through a presentation that students helped to create. It was shared in one of the Cougar Connect newsletters.
Now as a result, some changes will be happening. Starting this week, a second cafeteria window will open. It will have some grab and go items like pizza and chicken sandwiches that anyone can get (including those with free or reduced lunch). It will also have additional add on items like bottled water, Izzie sparkling drinks, etc. Students must have cash in their accounts to buy these items. These were some of the things students requested last year. See the fliers attached below for more details. More a la carte items will be added throughout the year. We will be collecting more student feedback to help determine some of these additional items. Great job Kennedy students for speaking up!
The Science Department is hosting our second annual Astronomy Night. Join us this 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. If you are planning to attend, please use the link below to RSVP so we know how much food to get.
Dress Code Reminders
Please be sure that your student is dressed appropriately for school and following school dress code rules. When students aren’t dressed appropriately it can be a distraction for other students. Some of the main things we are seeing are: jeans with excessively big holes/rips, students wearing red shirts and trying to hide them under sweatshirts, midriffs showing, and pajama bottoms. Your student will be asked to change and/or families will be called to bring a change of clothes.
