Mrs. Shannon has posted updated lists of 7th and 8th-grade students who are cleared for Spring Sports outside the cafeteria. If you’re planning to try out for any of these sports, make sure your name is listed and see Mrs. Shannon today if you still need sports physical or consent forms.

World Down Syndrome Awareness Day is coming up on March 21. Rock your socks by wearing colorful, crazy printed, maybe even mismatched socks to school next Friday, March 20. The point of wearing unique socks is to remind people that differences can be beautiful. Fun socks with unique designs will be on sale at the school store for $2 during lunches on Tuesday and Thursday. You can also come by the life skills classroom, room C 101, to buy them anytime.

The track team has started this week. If you are interested however you are concerned about transportation home we want to help you. We will work out carpools for you and find a way for you back home. Please reach out to Coach Hannah if you want to run track but you need help. 610-308-4288 or HannahChristopher@comcast.net

KMS joins Patton Middle School for STEM

Our middle school students were invited to participate in a STEM-focused event at Patton Middle School. Hosted by a local chemical engineering company, Chemours, students had the chance to experience a day full of activities, interaction with robots, and time spent with local STEM-based companies. This year’s event centered around the theme of sustainability. Students from Kennett, Unionville, and Avon Grove started the day by interacting with a presentation from a Chemours engineer and Kennett parent, Mrs. Kathleen O’Keefe. As she introduced the theme of the day, students learned about their own environmental footprint, the needs of our current earth, and what the Chemours company is working on to help with these daily impacts. After the introduction, students moved to engage in a variety of hands-on projects. The sustainability-themed projects ranged from creating a small recycling-sorter out of cups and paper plates to developing a water filtration prototype to creating a paper windmill. Students could also explore the different robots developed by Unionville’s high school FTC Robotics team and our very own Kennett High School Blue Demon FRC Robotics team. After lunch was provided, local STEM category companies showcased what they do on a daily basis. Students used a “passport” to check off their visits to each company as they toured the “company expo”.

We look forward to next year’s event and what it may provide for our students!
