Kennett Phillies Game 2018

Now an annual tradition at Kennett Middle School, the eighth grade chorus sang the National Anthem at the April 22, 2018 Phillies vs. Pirates baseball game. Sixth grade Language Arts teacher, Mrs. Melissa Keer, was chosen to throw out the first pitch. Almost 500 Kennett community members and family purchased tickets for this event and a fun time was had by all.

KMS Can’t Stop the School to Watch Feeling!

Every day at KMS is a great day but May 31, 2018 was exceptionally fun!

In the morning, all students and staff received white Kennett PRIDE t-shirts courtesy of the KMS PTO and then we had the Kennett High School Class of 2018 Senior Stroll. It seems like just yesterday the seniors were here at the middle school. Please check out some pictures on our KMS Twitter page.

To top off a great day, in the afternoon we had our Schools to Watch celebration assembly. We are so proud to be redesignated as a Pennsylvania School to Watch and to be one of 38 middle schools in PA and 450 middle schools in the country to receive this designation. It is our students, families, staff, and community that make Kennett so special. We even had a special visitor at the end of the assembly who accompanied us to the buses… The Phillie Phanatic! Pictures on Twitter!

We have a feeling here that we just can’t stop… please enjoy our celebration video that we played at the assembly today: Kennett Middle School – A School to Watch – Can’t Stop the Feeling! Video.

Thank you to everyone who made the day a success!
