Congratulations KMS, you’ve completed your first week of PSSAs. Thank you for your hard effort and your flexibility with the schedule changes. It was great to see so many students showing their Kennett Pride all week!
Hopefully you remember hearing a lot about the documentary “What’s so cool about manufacturing” that 5 KMS students were making over the last few months. You may even remembering voting in computer class to support their efforts. Well, on Wednesday night the awards ceremony was held at the campus of Penn State Great Valley. With 13 Schools competing only 6 were awarded prizes. The viewers choice award was the last award of the evening. A total of 24,000 votes were cast for this award which is more than 5 times the amount cast all of last year in the same contest. This year, your very own Kennett Middle School won the Viewer Choice award with a grand total of 7,000 votes – 3 times the amount of any other submission in this years contest. If you see Aidan Cairns, Robby Rauscher, Catt Seamon, Baden Saatloff, or Luke Summa please congratulate them on their hard work and for bring back some fine hardware to KMS! Congratulations everyone! With more than 3 times the amount of votes than any other school we won the viewers choice award.
Attention 7th grade students who missed PSSA testing on Monday or Tuesday of this week. Please report to the Library Classroom 2nd period to complete make-ups today. You will receive a pass to return to class once you’ve finished testing.
Staff, students who are completing testing with me on Friday will return to the classroom with a pass following their testing. The front office will have my verified list of students that began testing with me during 2nd period. Thank you.
“The KMS softball team started off the season yesterday with a bang beating Stetson by a score of 19-1. The team batted around in the first inning scoring 6 runs and then sent 15 batters to the plate in the 3rd inning scoring 10 more runs. Leading the team were Amber Kahrs and Anna Regester each with 2 hits while Genevieve Ebaugh pitched a no-hitter. Next up the team faces Pierce Middle School on Thursday at home.”
Today, is the last day before Spring Break. But, today is also a Kennett Square Power Up day. If you receive a Kennett Square today it will count as two in your overall count. Let’s have a record day!
