Week of November 25, 2019
We are looking forward to seeing many families tomorrow or Tuesday for conferences from 8 am to 3 pm. We are taking a lunch break from 12-1 pm so that all staff can eat lunch together. (Thank you, PTO!) You may show up during the conference window and meet with each of your student’s teachers. Spanish translation will be provided as needed. If you need help with where to go, you can stop in the office first if your student isn’t with you. You are welcome to bring your student with you though. Here are some ideas of key questions you can ask your student’s teachers:
How is my student's behavior in class?
Is my student completing class work?
Is my student completing homework?
What are the strengths and areas for improvement for my student?
Due to conferences the next two days, there is no school for students, and then students and staff are off the rest of the week starting on Wednesday for Thanksgiving break. Have a safe and wonderful break.
Honor Roll Breakfast
8th grade students received a letter on Friday with details about high school placement testing. In case your student was absent, the letter is attached below. For more information for incoming high school students, visit the Sequoia Union High School District website. See the picture below that shows you where to go for information on their website regarding incoming students.
For high school, families have to provide proof of residence. Normally you have to bring this information to their District Office. While you can still do this, they are trying to make it more convenient for families, so on Thursday, January 23, 2020, from 5:30-7:00 pm, they will be in the Kennedy library.

We will begin school tours for potential incoming Kennedy students in December. Some have asked why we haven’t started sooner like some of the other schools. The directive was to wait until after meet RCSD Night in January, so I was following the directive given. We are now all allowed to start touring. Here are the dates:
Thursday, December 5, 8:30 am, Library
Tuesday, December 17, 8:30 am, Library
Thursday, January 16, 8:30 am, Library
Friday, January 24, 8:30 am, Library
*For families who can’t make any of these dates/times and want more information about the school can contact the office to setup a meeting time with me.
