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

Wednesday, February 7, 2019 Day 3

Good morning. Today is the fourth day of “National School Counseling Week” and we want to celebrate diversity.

Look around your classroom What do you see?

None of us is alike. We look different, sound different and think differently. As was pointed out on Monday, we are all unique. And what a beautiful school we have as a result!

The poet Maya Angelou said, “We all should know that diversity makes for a rich tapestry, and we must understand that all the threads of the tapestry are equal in value no matter what their color.“

When it comes right down to it, we are all different inside and out. Our diversity is the one true thing we all have in common.

Acknowledge your differences and celebrate them. Not just today, but every day.

The Counselor Quote of the day: In diversity there is beauty and there is strength.

Wednesday, February 6, 2019 Day 2

Good morning, today is the third day of “National School Counseling Week” and we want you to think about your future.

How many of you have thought about what you want to be doing in five years? Ten years? Twenty years? What do you see yourself doing? Where will you be? The world is changing rapidly, and your options are unlimited.

Did you know that the top 10 in-demand jobs this year didn’t even exist in 2004? Did you know that when you enter the job market you will

be using technology that has not been invented yet in order to solve problems we don’t even know are problems yet?

What an exciting time. Take advantage of your opportunities at school to learn, to discover what you’re good at and to figure out what you love. Benjamin Franklin said, “Hide not your talents, they for use were made. What’s a sundial in the shade?”

Find your talents. Celebrate your future. Dream big.

Counselor Quote of the day: Confucius once said, “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.”

Students participating in the Grade 6 Mindfulness Group, please report to the designated meeting space during 5th period today. We will meet at 10:33 am. Don’t forget to get your pass from your homeroom teacher! See you soon!

FCA huddle will be this Thursday morning at 6:50 am in Mr. Bowling’s room. If you have been curious about what FCA is – come and check it out. There will be donuts!

8th Graders who have not turned in their permission forms for the TCHS field trip on February 22nd, please get them signed and turn them in to either your homeroom teacher or the guidance office! You don’t want to miss out on this super fun and informative afternoon!

There will be Reading Olympics meetings in the library at all lunches today!

Monday, February 4, 2019 Day 6

Today is the first day of “National School Counseling Week.” This week is sponsored by the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) and it’s designed to highlight the unique contribution of school counselors within U.S. school systems. In honor of this week, the KMS counselors would like to offer a daily dose of morning motivation to encourage and inspire!

It is often difficult for students to embrace or recognize their strength and beauty especially when

various every day stressors like tough classes, peer pressure, family and friendship problems get in the way! Therefore, allow us to remind you that each one of you is imperfectly perfect and should be proud of who you are.

Quote for the day: In a world where you can be anything, Be yourself!

Have a Great Day!

Ms. Boder, Mrs. Reinheimer and Mrs. Stoudemire

8th Graders who have not turned in their permission forms for the TCHS field trip on February 22nd, please get them signed and turn them in to either your homeroom teacher or the guidance office!
