To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Apollo 11, students at Kennedy High School and the Fab Lab were asked by former Myth Buster's co-host Adam Savage to help recreate the command module hatch from the mission.
Week of September 2, 2019
WELCOME SPIRIT WEEK
Our first Spirit Week of the year begins on Tuesday, September 3, with Pajama Day. Wednesday is Slides, Sneakers and Crocs Day. Thursday is Graphic T-Shirt day, Friday is Neon Class Colors Day along with the Welcome Rally. Please encourage your student to participate!
COURSE CHANGE REQUESTS
Now that we have balanced overenrolled classes, and corrected gaps in students’ schedules, this week our counselors will begin to process students’ schedule change requests, including requests from seniors to drop a class or serve as a teacher’s assistant. Students should continue to follow their schedule as shown in PowerSchool until a counselor meets with them to discuss their request.
ON-TIME ARRIVAL TO SCHOOL
There are more than 100 students that arrive late to school every day. Families, we need your help to ensure that your students arrive on time and ready to learn. School begins at 8:20. When students arrive late, it affects their learning and interferes with the learning for all students. To find out if your student arrives to school on time, use the PowerSchool app to view their attendance.
AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM
Our after school program is off to a great start! If you would like for your student to do their homework at school and get help from teachers, or learn something new like chess, or spend time with friends and caring adults in a safe environment, then ask your students to visit room 503 to find out more about the after school program.
In fall sports news, our girls JV and varsity volleyball teams host Vallejo High School in the gym on Thursday night. Our football teams are undefeated, and they will host Terra Linda on Friday night. There is no cost to attend the volleyball games, and admission for the football games is $7 for adults, and $3 for Kennedy students with a valid ID card, senior citizens, and younger students accompanied by a parent or guardian.
If you have any questions about these announcements, please contact the main office at 510-231-1433. On behalf of all of us at the K, have a great week!
