Students in Mrs. Marchini’s Kindergarten class learned how to make butter just in time for Thanksgiving. Students followed a recipe, added ingredients, and shook their containers until they made real butter. The work was well worth it when students were able to enjoy the delicious butter on slices of bread.
As adults were casting their ballots for the next President of the United States, students at Mary D. Lang Kindergarten Center were thinking hard about their choices as well. It was a hard decision because students had to choose between hat day or sports day.

Mary D. Lang Kindergarten Center has a new program that has the girls very excited!
Female students from Kennett High School have volunteered to become “Big Sisters” to “Little Sisters” at Mary D. Lang Kindergarten Center. The students from Kennett High School are giving the Mary D. Lang Kindergarten Center Little Sisters an invaluable gift … friendship.
Together the students will practice academic skills, play games, do crafts, and learn from one another!
This program will meet monthly at the Mary D. Lang Kindergarten Center.
Do you know what this is?
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!
Kennett High School invites the District’s current elementary and middle school students to We Are Kennett Night on Thursday, November 3 at 6:30 pm.
At We Are Kennett Night, students and their families will learn about the many academic, athletic, and club opportunities that are available at Kennett High School. The purpose of this event is to encourage our younger students to begin considering their educational future at Kennett High School. This will be a fun and exciting opportunity for future Kennett High School students to meet the high school principals, teachers, counselors, and coaches, and to also explore the building to learn its physical layout. The event will kick off at 6:30 PM with a presentation regarding the academic, athletic, and extracurricular programs at Kennett High School.
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.
Barry Tomasetti, Superintendent
Kennett Consolidated School District
