A Message From Principal Almon

Dear Commander Family,

Wishing you a safe, joyful, and peaceful holiday break! I hope you can spend these next two and half weeks in the company of those you love. Please take time to rest and recharge so that we can start Semester 2 and 2023 strong and continue to Take Command of Our Futures! 

All Semester 1 grades will post to Student and Parent Portal by Monday, 12/19/23, and digital report cards will be emailed out the week of 1/9/23. Those of you who earned an incomplete in one or more of your classes have three semesters from the start date of the course in which you received an incomplete to demonstrate mastery and receive credit. Please work with your teacher directly to determine how to receive credit for that course.

If you have an eighth grader and need more information about Kennedy to aid in the very important decision of choosing a high school, here is the slide deck presented during our Future Commanders Night on 12/14/22 that highlights all of the amazing programs we offer here at Kennedy. 

Classes for Semester 2 begin on Thursday, 1/5/23 (GREEN DAY), and 1/6/23 is a BLUE DAY.

Please read below for important updates and information.

Have a Commander Kind of Holiday Break, and Happy New Year! We look forward to seeing you on 1/5/23! 

Tiffany Almon, Proud and Grateful Principal

She, her, hers, and why they matter

Take Command of Your Future!
