    Coffee with the Counselors

    Mrs. Northrup, Mrs. Anderson, and Mrs. Smith do so much to support our students academically, socially, and emotionally. Whether meeting with them individually or in groups; coordinating our Signs of Suicide program; or helping guide their future career thinking through School Links; they always have our students' best interests at heart.

    On March 17th the Kennedy Counselors invite parents to the Learning Commons from 8:15-9:00 am for a morning of collaboration and discovery to get feedback on our counseling program.  The Home and School meeting will directly follow.

    Home and School Positions for Next Year

    Speaking of Home and School, we are looking for volunteers to fill the following positions:

    • Treasurer - If you can balance your checkbook, you can do this!  The main role of the Treasurer is to monitor how H & S's money is being spent. There will be lots of support from the Kennedy office, and from the previous Treasurer.
    • Committee Chairs: Book Fair (1), School Family Community Partnership (1), Staff Appreciation (2)

    If you have any questions, please contact President Laura Norkett

    Keep Those Food Donations Coming

    Student Council's canned food drive to benefit Loaves and Fishes continues until March 20. This is the time of year that food resources in the community become strained, so please do all you can do to help. Please see the Loaves and Fishes webpage for a list of needed items.

    Welcome our New School Resource Officer

    Lisle Police Officer Chris Venice joins the Kennedy staff this week. He is an experienced school resource and juvenile officer who will play a very important role in our school community. In addition to building positive relationships with students, he will help with instruction, offering his insights into topics such as learning the Bill of Rights and the dangers of vaping, drugs, and alcohol, advise staff on community resources to support students, and maintain school safety.  His presence is truly a "resource," in that his unique perspective further enriches our students' learning experience.
