Note from the Principal

Hi everyone! We hope you have had a wonderful summer. We have been working hard this summer to get ready for our Kennedy Cubs to return. Our theme this year is Kennedy Elementary is Creating Leaders in Everyone.


Kennedy Welcome Wagon

Our Kennedy teachers will be visiting some neighborhood playgrounds to get our students excited about starting up a new year. We will be at East Port playground at 4:05, Homestead Playground at 4:20, Hilltop Apartments Playground at 4:35, and PeacePipe Park at 4:50. Hope to see you at one of our stops.


Entrance Conferences


Our entrance conference will be September 5th and 6th. Please call if you have not scheduled your conference yet.



PAWS to Read Program


We are excited to continue our "Paws to Read" program again this year. We are asking the students to read 30 Minutes a night to help with improvement in Reading. We will also be holding Kennedy Read Outs again this year in different locations around Mankato.


Kindness in Chalk Event

On October 2nd, we will be doing our annual Kindness in Chalk event. We will take time out of our day to participate in all school act of kindness. From 1:45 to 2:15 all of our students will be spreading kindness by writing positive messages on our school sidewalks for all the people of Kennedy to enjoy.


Come join us in this awesome event to show kindness at Kennedy.


These are some pictures from last year.
