KMS Helps the Community

Recently the Kennett Food Cupboard had a fire and lost 50% of their goods. KMS as members of this amazing community stepped up and really made a huge impact. We delivered one thousand four hundred pounds of non-perishable food items at the end of the week to the food cupboard. That was what the school could pull together in two days. It is truly amazing what we can do together when help is needed. We really showed Kennett PRIDE!

KMS Library Celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month

Kennett Middle School Library has been celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month. Books about different Hispanic countries, cultures, and food have been displayed for students to explore and check out. Fiction books starring a Hispanic protagonist have also been featured. When visiting the library with classes, students watched a video of some of their favorite Disney actors talking about their Hispanic heritage. After the video, students with Hispanic heritage were encouraged to place a dot on the city and country on the appropriate map displayed in the hallway to represent where their families are from. It has been a great experience for students to get to know each other more personally and students have enjoyed participating in the Hispanic Heritage Month activities.

The Power of Positivity

At KMS the girl’s locker room is filled with quotes and positive statements. We often call out, “We are women who can!” Every direction you look you will find encouraging statements. We come into this space and regroup and think positively! It is a very happy environment meant to be positive and supportive. The first picture is what the girls face when they walk into the room, “Hello Beautiful.” The girls love it!

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!
