Accelerated Reader at KMS – Reading is Our Super Power

Accelerated Reader is a reading program for students in sixth and seventh grades at Kennett Middle School. It is designed to help them set and meet goals to improve or “accelerate” their reading skills in comprehension and fluency. The program also allows students to monitor their own progress while providing valuable data to the teachers that helps students achieve goals and ensures that students have materials within their own reading level.

To make the program fun, a friendly competition is held each week within the sixth and seventh grades. This year’s theme is superheroes, and the motto is “We Read…What’s Your Superpower?” The bulletin board display in the media center features tall buildings, one for each grade. At the top of the building are superheroes, with the face of the teachers whose classes are in the lead on the superhero. Students enjoy seeing their class’s progress each week.

Kennett Middle School Celebrates Red Ribbon Week

This week, Kennet Middle School celebrated Red Ribbon Week. The goal of Red Ribbon week is to present a visible commitment to living a safe, healthy, and drug-free life. The campaign is designed to create awareness concerning the problems related to the use of tobacco, alcohol, and other drugs and to support the decision to live a drug-free lifestyle. Here is a brief snapshot of what we did each day.

Monday – School Counselor Mrs. Reinheimer and Assistant Principal Mr. Moore introduced Red Ribbon week and Kennet Middle School’s Student Assistance Program (CARES) on the morning announcements.

Tuesday – All three Kennet Middle School principals made an appearance on the morning TV announcements to share with students 3 areas of your life that can be negatively impacted by abuse of drugs and alcohol. Those areas were your health, your professional opportunities, and your relationships.

Wednesday – All students answered the prompt “Life is Key so I will travel drug free by….” on cardboard cutouts and the CARES team created a beautiful bulletin board which displays our students’ answers.

Thursday – On Thursday, students wore red in support of Red Ribbon Week. Also, handouts were placed on lunch tables to educate students on the dangers of drugs and alcohol. Mr. Moore also emphasized good decision making on the morning announcements.

Friday – Students were challenged to have a “Partner Against Crime” which is someone that you will always look out for and help make sound decisions. Students were asked to twin with someone to show their commitment to the friendship. The goal of this day is to encourage students to have the strength and courage to look out for their friends should they ever need support.

Thank you everybody for your participation!

The “Pinked Out” 8th grade Field Hockey team finished off their unbeaten season defeating Upland by a score of 3-0. The Demons got off to a slow start but the offense was able to get on the board when Raina Bickel received a pass by Lucy Myers and was able to find the back of the goal. The offense of Bridget Wells, Norah Peterson, Ava Gavin, Sam Bevard, and Lili Lusvardi continued the pressure on the Upland defense when Megan Ward was able to sneak the ball past the goalie to give Kennett a two goal advantage. Jordyn MacMillan added the third goal of the game with a blast off of a penalty corner. Upland tried their best to get on the board, but had a difficult time getting past the mid field of MacMillan, Sarah Burns, Britney Sedano, and Norah Wolff. The defense of Elizabeth Calhoun, Kaitlyn Stolp, Hayley Holder, Isabelle Scopio, and Molly Kaplan limited the shots on Goal Keeper Maddi Sears assisting her with another shutout. Congratulations on an impressive season.
