Message from our PTO President

Hello, Kennedy Community!

Thank you to those who joined us for last month’s PTO meeting. I’m excited to share that the PTO voted to financially support Women’s Mentor Day and Career Day which benefited all KMS 8th graders! Kudos to our Kennedy administrators and staff for planning and executing such a memorable day of speakers and activities. It was amazing!

Because of our community’s generous monetary donations throughout the year, the PTO is able to directly serve our students by supporting electives, as well as new events like Mentor Day and Career Day and expanded experiential learning. For example, 6th-grade science teachers are now able to purchase extra STEM supplies like frogs and worms (metabolism unit), strawberries (genetics unit), foam, felt, and foil (thermal energy unit). All of these hands-on science activities will enhance experiential learning in the classroom and the students have lots of fun in the process.

The PTO will also take special care of our teachers and staff during conference week by providing lunch and sweet treats for them. Their hard work and dedication to our students is truly appreciated.

As we head toward spring and the final trimester of this school year, keep those donations coming! Remember no amount is too small and all funds directly support KMS students, faculty, and staff. If you are able, DONATE HERE! Donate – KMS PTO

Another way to become involved in ensuring the success of Kennedy students and others throughout RCSD is to apply to join the Measure U Citizens’ Oversight Committee. This committee oversees the expenditure of parcel tax proceeds by the school district. Check out this link for more information:

Finally, please mark your calendars for the March PTO meeting on Tuesday, March 26, from 7:00-8:30 pm. We will meet in person at the KMS Library. We hope to see you there!
