Congratulations to our own KMS Treble Choir members, Pattie Mancuso, and our entire music department for an awesome performance of the National Anthem at tonight’s Temple vs University of Central Florida men’s basketball game. There is a lot of Kennett PRIDE at the Liacouras Center tonight! Here is a glimpse of how fabulous they sounded.

Attention Mr. Fox’s Grade 8 Computer Classes: Please Bring your High School Educational Planning Guide and Scheduling Worksheet to your next Computer Class. That’s for Mr. Fox’s Grade 8 Computer Classes.

Recently, you may have heard a lot of announcements about the “ What’s So Cool About Manufacturing Student Video Contest. Maybe it’s time to explain: 5 KMS students along with teams of students from 13 local middle schools traveled to local manufacturing facilities to create a two minute video that captures “What’s So Cool” about careers in Advanced Manufacturing. This contest generates awareness of what an advanced manufacturing career may look like to our younger, tech savvy generation.

On Tuesday, March 14, 2017 Join us to celebrate Kennett Middle School’s participation in this contest! Awards for Outstanding Editing, Outstanding Videography, Outstanding Cool, Outstanding Educational Value, Outstanding Creativity and Viewer’s Choice will be presented at the ceremony – come show your Kennett Pride and cheer for fellow students! A Manufacturer Expo will be included in the event to showcase the participating companies and fabulous desserts will be served. You will see the event flyer hanging outside of Mr. Malkasian and Mr. Powell’s room if you’re interested.

Lastly, to our 5 participating students, please see Mr. Powell or Mr. Malkasian immediately regarding your attendance at the award ceremony.

Reminder: For all girls interested in the softball team, there will be an optional open hitting session at the KAU shed this Friday from 3-5PM. Bring your bats and helmets and catchers bring your gear. Everyone must arrange for their own transportation to and from the KAU shed. For more details, please see the flyer posted outside Ms. Gottstein’s room.

A big congratulations to sixth-grader, Blake Ciresa, for representing Kennett Middle School like a champ yesterday at the Chester County Spelling Bee! She was one of 51 spellers from throughout the county. Blake made it through the preliminary rounds into the championship rounds. She spelled with great concentration and poise, and we are so very proud of her. I’m sure we’ll see Blake again next year at the KMS Bee. Well done, Blake!
