Dear Commander Community,
Sunday marks the end of Black History Month 2021; but, here at Kennedy, 2/28/21 does not end our efforts to continue including, recognizing, and celebrating our Black students and families. We are committed to continuously finding ways to help our students, especially our BIPOC community members, find connections within our school, step into leadership opportunities, explore and thrive in their academic pathway, and elevate their voices every day all year. A few initiatives and shifts to our systems and policies include:
We love getting feedback on how to continuously improve, so please reach out to me via email, if you’d like to provide further suggestions on how to move closer towards becoming a truly equitable and inclusive school. Additionally, if you would like to provide input on our Bell Schedule for next year, take this survey asap.
Please sign up for virtual parent/guardian/teacher conferences held this Wednesday and Thursday from 4 – 7 pm using the sign up links on this document, which is also on our website. Special shout out to Ms. Randall, Ms. Gilmore, and all of the students from Kennedy and BVIS who participated in or watched the ARISS contact with the International Space Station, see the coverage on 9News here. What a great week to be a Commander!
