We are excited to announce that our Kennett Middle School 7th and 8th grade football teams will be playing a special game this Wednesday night at Kennett High School. This is a game against one of our local rivals, Patton Middle School in Unionville. We have partnered up with Patton to help a middle school in Texas recover from the recent hurricane. At the entrance and during the game we will be collecting monetary donations. We hope to see you all there on Wednesday night, November 1, 2017 for the 7th grade game at 5:30pm and the 8th grade game at 7:00pm. Please come out and support the Hurricane Harvey Relief for Galena Park Middle School in Texas and cheer on your KMS football teams! Check out the flyer here: Hurricane Fundraiser Football Game.pdf

An organization named Texas Teachers for Tomorrow has matched KMS and Patton with Galena Park Middle School in Texas and they are in need of many items. Please lend a helping hand!

Hi KMS Parents and Guardians!
We wanted to remind you that we have our Back to School Night on Wednesday, September 13, 2017. The attached letter will be distributed to all students in all first periods tomorrow morning.
You will have the opportunity to meet all of your child’s teachers. Homeroom announcements on our TV system begin at 6:45 pm and first period will begin at 7:00 pm. Before arriving, please ask your child to tell you who their first period teacher is and where he/she is located. In the first period, you will receive a copy of your child’s full schedule and a map that you will follow for the remainder of the night.
As always, please try to carpool because our parking lot fills quickly. Parking is available in the front and back of the school. Please be cautious and safe on Sunny Dell Road. We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday night!
Sincerely with Kennett PRIDE,
The KMS Principals

Kennett Middle School went pink this October for Breast Cancer Awareness Month!
Student Council held a “Pink Out” every Wednesday throughout the month of October where students dressed in pink to support the many survivors of breast cancer within our Kennett community.
In addition, the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Annual 5K Run/Walk was held on October 8, and Kennett Middle School joined the fight to raise money for a cure. A Hat Day was held, and when all was said and done, $470.30 was donated by our generous staff and students. Way to go Kennett Middle School!
Welcome to our new feature, Student Spotlight! Here we will feature our Kennett PRIDE Students of the Month. These are the students who have received the most Kennett Squares in their grade that month. The September PRIDE Students of the Month are Marco King from sixth grade, Mattias King from seventh grade, and McKenna Norton from eighth grade.
Marco, a sixth grade student, reports that his favorite subject is Science because he has a great teacher who teaches him amazing things. When asked about his favorite part of Kennett Middle School, he said, “I like all of the clubs and that you can do many things during lunch. I also like how all of my teachers are always prepared and ready to teach many things.” When Marco is not in school, he enjoys playing outside. His advice to students who strive to be a Kennett PRIDE Student of the Month is to “try your best and be nice everywhere you go.”
Mattias, a seventh grade student, shares that his favorite subject is Math because it “makes sense.” He shares that his favorite part about Kennett Middle School is his teachers and that outside school he enjoys playing soccer. His advice to other students who strive to be a Kennett PRIDE Student of the Month is “if all you want to do is show off, don’t bother.” What a great reminder to “just be yourself!”
McKenna, an eighth grade student, loves American History because her teacher makes it “fun and interesting” and she enjoys learning new content. Her favorite thing about our school is the teachers because they are “truly passionate about what they do.” Outside of school, McKenna is very active playing tennis, learning Mandarin, read, and attend her church youth group. McKenna advises students to show their Kennett PRIDE by “always being polite and appreciating the little things your teachers do for you.”
