Volleyball Game

On Friday, we had our annual Student-Faculty volleyball game.  It’s a great event that raises lots of money for families in our community.  We laughed and cheered our way through the afternoon. In addition, we had a dance performance by several teachers and many of our 8th graders between each of the volleyball games. We also had a student rap his poem that he wrote in his Language Arts class. It was a celebration of great things at KMS and we raised money. There was a lot of Kennett PRIDE!

Thursday, November 21, 2019 Day 6

Since we are participating in Toys for Tots here is the objective of this program. Toys for Tots was created to help needy children throughout the United States experience the joy of Christmas; to play an active role in the development of one of our nation’s most valuable resources – our children. They also want to unite all the members of the local community in a common cause for three months each year for a local toy collection and distributions. Here at KMS, we have a collection bin in the main office. We are collecting new, unwrapped toys in the main office through Thursday, December 12th.

ATTENTION ALL SEVENTH GRADERS!!! LOOK UP!!! I REPEAT!!! LOOK UP!! We need you to collect food for the Kennett Cupboard Selfies with Santa Food Drive! The things that we need are on Ms. Fellows’ website. If all of the items are collected, Ms. Fellows will dress up as Santa, and you will be able to take selfies with her in the cafeteria the day before winter break! We are counting on you! Thank You!

Boys Basketball Tryouts will be on December 10th, 13th, and 17th. All boys’ must-have forms turned into Mrs. Shannon in order to participate. There is a flyer with additional information located outside of Mr. Robinson’s or Mr. Augustine’s room.
