Dear Commander Community,
I would like to take a moment to recognize the 2,977 lives lost from over 90 nations during the 9/11/01 attacks on the World Trade Center and the first responders and armed forces that sacrificed so much during the aftermath and rescue efforts. Although our world has been changed forever, we can find solace and strength in uniting together as a community and continuing to honor, celebrate, and be inclusive of each others’ beautiful differences.
Hispanic Heritage Month begins on Wednesday, September 15th, and a team of teachers and staff are working to create advisory experiences and community events to celebrate our Hispanic Community Members who have contributed so much to our society.
Additionally, our Native students will be receiving personal invitations to the Native HOPE program that takes place at Kennedy on 9/16 and 9/17. On 9/16, we are proud to announce the No Hate BMX tour is coming to our Blacktop at 1:30 pm. This tour promotes anti-bullying and brings our students together for an exciting BMX presentation. We will have a modified schedule on this day as follows:
Please mark your calendar for the Homecoming events shown below that are upcoming throughout the week of 9/20, including an in-person community conversation with our Superintendent, Dr. Marrero, on September 22 at 5 PM in our auditorium.
Have a Commander Kind of Week!
