Sneak Peak to the Week

Jared Campbell Visits Kennedy School

KES students had a blast singing along with Jared Campbell at our assembly this week. They learned songs about being kind, being a good friend, and not being a bully.

Check out one of Jared Campbell's song below that we enjoyed at KES!

Bus Evacuation Drills 4/26

On 4/26, KES will be conducting our bus evacuation drills during arrival. For the safety of the students, all traffic will be stopped while students are evacuating the buses. Please know that this will slow the flow of traffic in the morning. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Snack Time

In order to keep all of our students safe, please do not send in items with peanut butter for snack time in the classroom. Peanut butter can only be consumed in the cafeteria, as we have specific procedures in place for students with allergies.
