Back to School Night 2017

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!

KMS Went Pink For Breast Cancer

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!

Marco King

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.”

Betsy the Cow Visits KMS

Another memorable day at Kennett Middle School yesterday…

Betsy the Cow joined us for a live drawing lab in art classes. Our always adventurous and ever-remarkable KMS art teachers with the help of the father of seventh grade student, Penny Romanelli, arranged for Betsy to spend the day at KMS. Betsy is a 4 month old calf who weighs about 180 pounds.

The live drawing lab has become a tradition in Mrs. Uhl’s and Ms. Conner’s art classes featuring animals such as ducks, bunnies, a pig, horses, goats, an owl, a parrot, rats, and chickens. What an awesome experience for our students!
