In late May, Mary D. Lang Kindergarten Center students and their parents entered the school’s gym to find that it had been transformed into their favorite board game, Candyland. The scene was set for a wonderful family dance experience!
Lollipops lined the walls, gingerbread houses adorned the gym, and there was even a life-size game board! The kindergarteners twirled, whirled, and sang their hearts out as they made their way around the sweet scenery. Students were able to sit on Gumdrop Mountain, take photos in front of a Candyland backdrop, and hold up signs declaring they are members of the class of 2031!
The dance was all the buzz on Monday at school!
Mr. Clem Bowen, renowned storyteller from Southern Chester County, shared his vibrant stories with the students at Mary D. Lang Kindergarten Center before the end of the year. His stories captivated the students as he took them on adventures through space and the animal kingdom using only his voice and a few props. The students responded with laughter and cheers as they participated in the stories. Thank you, Mr. Bowen for always presenting lively tales.
The Kennett Run has been a community tradition for 30 years. This year, the race was even more spectacular for life-long Kennett community member and Mary D. Lang Kindergarten Center teacher, Mrs. Lisa Murphy, who won gold in her age group. Congratulations, Mrs. Murphy!
Leaving a with a fabulous new purse is how most people see themselves a winner at a Designer Bag Bingo event. For one Mary D. Lang Kindergarten Center family, their prize came with a lot of responsibility – an entire school.
Abigail Elia, in Mrs. Lawson’s Kindergarten class, would become the Principal for the Morning. Thanks to her mother placing tickets in the raffle bag and a little March luck, Abigail had a morning to remember. She started off her day reading the morning announcements, then gave a tour of our school to an incoming family, she led our April spirit assembly, performed walk-throughs with Mrs. Reynolds in different classrooms, and ended the day by doing the goodbye announcements for the students.
It was a busy yet memorable day for Abigail who may one day lead her own school teaching students to love learning.

Families gathered in the library of the Mary D. Lang Kindergarten Center to enjoy a movie with their family, friends, and neighbors. The students enjoyed coming to school in their pajamas with sleeping bags, stuffed animals, blankets, and pillows ready to enjoy the movie in comfort.
What an INCREDIBLE night to remember!
Kindness Week- Throughout the country and across the globe, schools celebrated, “Kindness Week.” January 28-February 1st marked this momentous week of activities, assemblies, discussions, and random acts of kindness.
At MDLKC, Mrs. Phillips has helped students create kindness chains that will be displayed in the cafeteria. She taught students a song about kindness at our kindness assembly, and each day Mrs. Reynolds read certificates of students and staff “filling each other’s buckets” on the announcements. Filling someone else’s bucket means that you have done something to make that person feel happy, loved, appreciated, etc. At MDLKC, students are encouraged to fill buckets every day.
All students watched a video about kindness starring MDLKC at our Kindness Assembly.
