    Dear Kennedy Community,

    We hope all students can join us in the fun of the Kennedy Spirit next week. To those who might ask why we are showing spirit on Tuesday (Election Day) when there is no school, my answer is Patriotism never takes a day off!

    No Shave November is Back! The No Shave November fundraiser is an annual Kennedy tradition. As the temperature drops and the snow falls, many Kennedy staff grow out their beards. Students can “vote with their dollars” to choose the best facial hair. All donations will be made directly to the Swifty Foundation. Look for more information next week.

    Thank you to everyone who participated in our Annual Fundraiser to support Kennedy Home & School.  Congratulations to the 60 Kennedy students who will be receiving Amazon Gift Cards.  Be on the lookout in the next few weeks for an email from to claim your prize.
