Hi 5th, 6th, and 7th Grade KCSD Students & Families,

Believe it or not, it is time to begin planning for the 2022-2023 school year! We are excited to see our 8th graders advance to Kennett High School, our 6th and 7th graders move forward to the next grade, and we are VERY excited to welcome the current 5th graders from New Garden Elementary, Bancroft Elementary, and Greenwood Elementary as the next 6th grade class! This fall, Dr. Lorenzo DeAngelis will be the 6th-grade principal and Ms. Lauren Boder will be the 6th grade school counselor. Mr. Jake Moore and Mrs. Jenna Reinheimer will travel with their cohort of students to 7th grade, and Mrs. Miller and Mrs. Barley-Stoudemire will travel with their cohort of students to 8th grade. To help students and families transition to the next grade, we have created Welcome Letters that are specific to the grade your student will be in next year. These Welcome Letters outline course offerings and explain how students are placed into courses. Welcome letters are available below electronically and paper copies are being mailed to all families this week.

Please read your letter carefully and contact KMS if you have any questions.

Sincerely with Kennett PRIDE,
