KMS Went Pink For Breast Cancer

Kennett Middle School went pink this October for Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

Student Council held a “Pink Out” every Wednesday throughout the month of October where students dressed in pink to support the many survivors of breast cancer within our Kennett community.

In addition, the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Annual 5K Run/Walk was held on October 8, and Kennett Middle School joined the fight to raise money for a cure. A Hat Day was held, and when all was said and done, $470.30 was donated by our generous staff and students. Way to go Kennett Middle School!

Each morning, students are responsible for the complete set-up of cameras, microphones, and graphics. With each passing morning, the students are gaining real-world experience that can be utilized when they enter high school and, if they choose, into a related career field.

Please watch for additional stories related to our growing TV studio.
