Dear Commander Community,
We are officially 6 weeks into the 21-22 school year. It is more critical than ever that we unite and remember that we are STronger Together as we work towards becoming the best high school in Denver Metro and living our PRIDE Values and Vision. Listed below are important ways for parents, students, and Kennedy staff to ensure that all students are on track and exhibiting P.R.I.D.E.:
Please congratulate Kimberly Quiroga and Melanie Barba-Favela as the winners of our T-shirt contest, we will submit these designs to our clothing vendor and t-shirts will be available soon for sale in the main hall.
Rodrick Smith and Marina Pauda were chosen by staff to be featured in our mural that will be painted by Thomas “Detour” Evans on the retaining wall on Dartmouth. Congrats to these two amazing students!
A note on Vandalism: Due to the dramatic uptick in vandalism mostly due to the “Devious Licks” Tik Tok Challenges, from this point forward, if any student is caught vandalizing, they will be charged for the destroyed items, be assigned community service, and at least ½ day in school suspension. We are also privy to the upcoming challenges, which have consequences that may include felony charges. Be smart, Commanders, and respect yourself, our staff, each other, and our school. We are not taking how we respond to these challenges lightly.
REMINDER: There is no school for students on Friday 10/15 for a Teacher Conference Exchange Day and no school for students on Monday 10/18 for Teacher Professional Learning.
