Thursday, February 27, 2020 Day 4

Attention Aladdin Cast and Crew members. Core Crew does not stay for practice today. Everyone else should still attend.

March is Youth Art Month- Help the Art Department kick off the celebrations by attending Kennett Middle School’s – IMAGINE BRANDYWINE STUDENT ART EXHIBIT Votes for Women.

Our students’ opening reception is Sunday, March 1, 2020, 2:30 to 3:30

Come and enjoy light refreshments and a special musical performance by “Kennett High School String Quintet.” This is all happening at The Brandywine River Museum.

Please see Mrs. Uhl and Mrs. Clapp for details.

Attention all students and homeroom teachers: It’s time for a friendly homeroom competition!

Every two weeks we will announce the homerooms that have handed in 100% of student absence notes. Those homerooms have no students that owe any absence notes from that two week time. Those winning homerooms will get a ticket entered into a raffle for a future pizza party. They will also be the homerooms that won the two-week race, so they get bragging rights for the next two weeks as we watch them cross the finish line ahead of the rest of the school.

The KMS secret judges decided to count a warm-up race and announce what homerooms have come in the lead for the two weeks between February 3rd and February 14th. These homerooms had zero missing absence notes during that time, so congratulations to the following winning homerooms:

Mrs. Anderson

Mrs. Reeves

Mrs. Pye

Ms. Burton

Mrs. Warren

Mrs. Brenna

Mrs. Bevan

Mr. Faiss

Mrs. Coe

Mrs. Matthias

Mrs. Uster

You don’t get a ticket yet, but you can hold your hands up in celebration because you are the first group to come in the finish line before the race even started. So, to you and the rest of KMS, let’s get on the track and hand in our absence notes! We’ll see you next time with the next group of homeroom winners!

Everyone should get excited! Student Council has planned KMS Spirit week for NEXT WEEK. Each day will have a different theme to get everyone excited for the Student-Faculty Basketball game on Friday, March 6th.

Diane Nash (1938-Present) is a major promoter of nonviolent resistance. She organized both lunch counters and school sit-ins. As a front line member of the Freedom Riders, a group of activists that went from state to state protesting segregation, Nash and her fellow riders regularly put themselves at risk, facing angry mobs of locals in each town they staged their protests.

Have a great day KMS
