Kellogg Families,

Our team this last week kept hearing about a new trend on TikTok.

Videos about mental health, but what is different is that they are posted by influencers...not professionals.

As you know, there has been an increase mental health need in recent years. We have a full team of specialists that we are thankful for here at Kellogg.

Recently, we noticed kids talking about or referring to these videos. We have heard phrases or sayings that seem to come from these videos.

We also notice that circle of friends keep this information within themselves instead of seeking out the help of an adult. Although we appreciate friendships, we remind students that in some instances, adults need to step in to help if needed as we are responsible for their safety and well-being at school.

Please always encourage your children to speak to an adult they trust if they have concerns.

A great reminder to be aware of what your child is viewing online, especially at such an developmental age.


Winter SUN Classes will end on Friday March 10th.

I am finalizing Spring SUN Classes, and SUN class selection sheets will be available the week of March 6th. Students will receive class selection sheets during their Homeroom period at Kellogg. Extra sheets will be available in the Kellogg Main Office.

-Class selection sheets will be due before Spring Break.

-Spring SUN Classes will run April 11th-May 19th

* I will not have the capacity to add additional students after Spring SUN classes begin so please do not be late with your forms!

New for Spring SUN: we will be working with StreetSoccerUSA to create a Middle School Soccer League with Kellogg Middle School and Reynolds Middle School students. Students who are enrolled in Soccer in the Spring will participate in 2-3 weekend soccer tournaments. More information will be provided to families that sign up to participate in Soccer through Kellogg SUN during the Spring term.
