Dear Commander Community,
We are so excited to welcome you back to school this upcoming week for the 22-23 school year. We are committed to providing our students with challenging, relevant, and joyous learning experiences that ignite a passion for pursuing and excelling in the post-secondary pathway of their choice. Click here to familiarize yourself with our website and explore our exciting programming at Kennedy.
As a reminder, only students in the Class of 2026 and Link Crew should report to school on Monday no later than 7:15 am. We have a special Orientation day planned to ensure that our 9th-grade students feel like they belong and are prepared for the school year. 9th-grade students who are registered will receive their schedule on Monday. 9th-grade students who are not registered will need to register first before receiving a schedule. 9th Graders should not bring anything but a water bottle and a lunch if you are choosing not to eat school lunch (menu here).
If you are a Sophomore, Junior, or Senior new to Kennedy this year and would like a tour on Monday, please get in touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org. All students should report to Kennedy no later than 7:15 am on Tuesday the 23rd. If you are registered, you will receive your schedule on Tuesday; if you are not registered, you will not receive a schedule until you are registered.
On Tuesday, the 23rd, all students should come prepared with their school supplies, including their DPS-issued Chromebook. If you do not have a Chromebook, you will receive one within the first week of school.
Parents and Guardians, your voices and ideas are valued! If you are interested in joining any of the following committees, click here.
We continue to mourn the loss of one of our beloved Commanders, Efrain Esparza-Payan; please contribute to the family’s GoFundMe if you are in the position to support in that way.
As Commanders, we must advocate for our passions, challenge inequity, and champion change. We challenge all members of the J.F.K. community to lead with P.R.I.D.E.
Please read below for more important information to start the year strong and Take Command of Your Future.
Have a Commander Kind of Day!

She, her, hers, and why they matter
