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!
