Friday, February 22, 2019 Day 4

Hello 8th graders that are attending today’s field trip to the TCHS. If you have a signed permission form with you, please hand it in to Guidance now.

You will be leaving for the busses during 5th period. You are taking the same bus today as you did when we toured the high school. If you have forgotten what bus you take, a bus list has been posted at the end of each 8th grade hallway. Ms. Boder will also have a bus list with her in the cafeteria during lunch today.

Our School Dental Hygienist will be doing dental exams for 16 students in the nurse’s office between 11:45 – 12:15 today. Passes will be given to students during homeroom. If you receive a pass, please arrive promptly at the designated time in the nurse’s office.

Attention all students, faculty and staff: it’s that time of year again! In anticipation of the Student vs. Faculty Basketball game coming up next Friday, student council has planned a spirit week starting on Monday! Each day will have a different theme that you can dress up for and show your Kennett PRIDE. Monday will be Pajama Day, so come to school dressed in your comfiest PJs! ​Just reminder that appropriate school dress still applies including no hair paint or face paint.

Here’s a look at the whole week…

Monday (2/25) – Pajama Day: What’s better than getting to wear your comfiest PJs to school!?

Tuesday (2/26) – Sports Day: Dress up in your favorite team’s gear!

Wednesday (2/27) – Style Wars: Each grade has a different style – 6th grade: polka dots, 7th grade: str​ipes, 8th grade: plaid​

Thursday (2/28) – Throwback Thursday: Reminisce about the past and dress up like you belong in your favorite decade!

Friday (3/1) – KMS Spirit: Show your KMS pride by wearing Blue and White! And then join us at the Student-Faculty basketball game Friday night.

Spring track is right around the corner! The first day of practice will be March 13th, a Wednesday. Start going for runs after school now, to come into the season already in good shape. Any questions? Email HannahChristopher@comcast.net

Please stay tuned for Flocabulary.

Have a great day KMS.

Thursday, February 21, 2019 Day 3

Students, here are a few adjustments since we had off on Wednesday:

  • Today is Day 3.
  • Yesterday was the end of Term 5 and we will still switch to Term 6 today. This affects students in Cooking and Sewing.
  • We will now print progress reports on Monday and distribute them in homerooms on Tuesday.

Attention 8th grade students, remember that this Friday is our trip to the Technical College High School. If you have not turned in your permission slip get it in right away. You do not want to miss this trip with your friends.

The Kennett Middle School Service Learning Group visited the Avondale Firehouse and the Southern Chester Police Department on Tuesday, 12/11/18 to deliver cookies as a gift of gratitude. This group of seven students volunteered to be a part of a group who created and implemented this service project of their own design and choosing. The group, who call themselves “Team Awesome”, met once a week to learn various interpersonal and leadership skills, while creating a service project for the community. After brainstorming several options, Team Awesome chose to honor the first responders to thank them for all they do to protect the people of our community. These students baked cookies and wrote thank you notes and then hand delivered them to offer their words of gratitude in person. Students enjoyed working as a team to thank the first responders for working hard every day to keep our community peaceful and safe.

We are looking for a few more awesome students to join the team! If you are interested, please sign up! A sign-up sheet will be available during lunch tomorrow and then it will be posted on the Guidance Office window. Don’t wait, join our team and be awesome!

This past weekend the Kennett wrestling team earned a 3rd place finish at the South Eastern Pennsylvania district 1 middle school championships. The tournament was comprised of 35 teams from all over SEPA. The tournament was a 2 day event where wrestlers had to battle through brackets as large as 32 competitors. In the end Kennett had 8 individuals place in the top 5 competitors in their weight class. In 5th place was Ethan Wentzel and Cody Ford, in 4th place was Michael Pepe and Ryan King, in 3rd place was Joey Wuchter and John Pardo, and two champions were Josh Barlow and Bailey Shindle who finished off their undefeated season in style. It was a great effort by all of our wrestlers that helped the team by gaining advancement points for our team. Other participants were Justin Rowles, Hailey Jaffe, Christian Vega, Kevin Zavala, Mario Garcia, Javier Garcia, and Will Chandler, who narrowly missed out on placing in the tournament. What a great way to end the season. Hopefully next year we can return and move up a little bit. For the eighth graders, district 1 has opened their eyes. Keep working hard and make a statement in the high school next year.

Wrestlers, please return your singlets to the main office right away.

Have a great day KMS.

Friday, February 8, 2019 Day 4

Good morning. Today is Friday, the final day of National School Counseling Week!

There is an old saying that goes, “No man is an island.” We need each other, and your actions can affect others around you even when you don’t always realize it. Today, try to make a positive impact, to make a difference. Do something nice for someone or for your school. Hold a door open for a teacher, and talk to someone you don’t know very well. Pick up a piece of trash in the cafeteria, and throw it away. True success is not only getting what you want but also reaching out and giving to others.

Thank you for celebrating with us this week! Thank you for allowing us to be your School Counselors. In the words of Henry Davis Thoreau, “Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined” and if you happen to need some guidance along the way, remember that we are always here for you.

All the best!

Ms. Boder, Mrs. Reinheimer, and Mrs. Stoudemire
