What to expect on conference day:

  1. Each conference is fifteen minutes long. Please make every effort to be on time as some schedules are back to back.

Science Explorers Visit Mary D. Lang Kindergarten Center

Do you know what this is?

20161009_170532

This is an eye of a fly under a microscope. One of our Kindergartners knew the right answer!

On Thursday, October 6, students were given an opportunity to see science in action at Mary D. Lang Kindergarten Center when Science Explorers came to visit. Mrs. Shinnergy, otherwise known as Mrs. Jill Shinn, brought science to life for the youngest members of our Kennett family. Students learned about and created endothermic and exothermic reactions. The students also learned about gasses and their reactions, as well as temperature changes!

Announcing: an All In Against Drugs Night for KCSD Parents

Parents:

Please join us in the High School Auditorium for an evening program on Tuesday, Oct. 18 at 6:45 P.M. as part of our fight against drug abuse.

KCSD will host an All In Against Drugs Night for all district parents (grades K to 12). Featured will be a video created by the FBI called “Chasing the Dragon,” which graphically illustrates the horrors of opiate drug use. Though we have no knowledge that this is an issue in our community, stories about opiate drugs have been in the news, and we want to give you an opportunity to learn more about the problem.

Also on the program will be presentations by FBI agent and Unionville parent Kevin McShane and Kennett High School counselor Fran Ryan. They will offer valuable advice about keeping our children drug-free and safe.

You will receive an “All In” t-shirt and a t-shirt to take home for each of your children. Though we must limit attendance at this program to adults only, you will learn how you can view this video at home with your children.

All of us at KCSD urge you to attend. We want to be your partners … to help you stay well-informed … to help you be better prepared … so that you can help your children make positive choices and avoid starting on a pathway to drug abuse.

I look forward to seeing you on Oct. 18.

Sincerely,

Barry Tomasetti, Superintendent

Kennett Consolidated School District
