KJHS Update

Posted by Patrick Gaskin on 12/7/2021

Dear KJHS Families,

The weather has taken a turn.  Please continue to remind your student(s) to ensure they are dressing appropriately each day for the weather conditions.  Students are excited about their new seats in the lunchroom.  A big thank you to Mrs. Freed and all of our lunchroom supervisors for making this happen.  Also, we wanted to thank all of our KJHS families for their support with the KJHS Book Fair.  It was another successful event and we could not have done it without the KJHS Home and School, KJHS parent volunteers, and our very own Mr. Sanford. 

Speaking of successful events, please take a minute to read below.

Naperville Education Foundation

In October, parents, teachers, staff, community members, students and alumni ran or walked the Naperville Half Marathon or 5K as Charity Hero fundraisers for TEAM NEF. Funds raised by TEAM NEF members are split between NEF-funded district-wide programs and the Naperville 203 school of the runner’s choice.

The KJHS Team raised $1,117.04 for your school.

Chicago Lighthouse

Markus T., a 6th grader at Kennedy Junior High School, is organizing his 4th annual hot cocoa drive this Sunday when the Chicago Bears face off against the Green Bay Packers, one of the oldest rivalries in football. Get warm and cozy with some hot chocolate and support Markus.  All the donations will go to the Chicago Lighthouse because every blind child deserves XMAS. Below is the Youtube link:


Date: Sunday, December 12, 2021

Thank you to all of our families for your continued support and dedication to KJHS.  We couldn’t accomplish any of these things without you.

Have a great afternoon.
