School season is prime time for classes, homework, sports… and the flu. With the flu virus most active from October to May, getting vaccinated is the #1 way to prevent the FLU and the fever, sore throat, body aches, and serious health complications. Come to Kennett High School on Tuesday, Nov 1 between 2:30 – 6:30 to get your FLU vaccine if you haven’t already been vaccinated by your doctor. See Mrs. Shannon if you have any questions.

Marco King

Marco, a sixth grade student, reports that his favorite subject is Science because he has a great teacher who teaches him amazing things. When asked about his favorite part of Kennett Middle School, he said, “I like all of the clubs and that you can do many things during lunch. I also like how all of my teachers are always prepared and ready to teach many things.” When Marco is not in school, he enjoys playing outside. His advice to students who strive to be a Kennett PRIDE Student of the Month is to “try your best and be nice everywhere you go.”

During the game, the following ladies served aces: Alex Seel, Lauren Markle, Lexi Cicconi, and Madison Weaver.

Alana Boiaradi rose above the others with blocking and had a successful tip. Zara Quraishi, Carly Cicconi, and Mariella Aguilar had great passes from the back row. Team spirit was rallied by Paige Brown. The winning point was scored after Lauren Markle rolly-pollied allowing Alex Seel to free ball over for the kill.”
