    Students and staff at Kennedy Elementary in Lawrence, Kansas were excited to welcome a national film crew to the school. They were recognized for their great accomplishments during the filming of a brief media video showcasing the triumphs of the school over the last few years.

  • Dependable Condors:
    ATTENDANCE MATTERS! Kennedy Elementary will be recognizing students with perfect attendance monthly! Perfect attendance means students are on time and at school EVERY DAY! Dependability is part of our Kennedy PRIDE expectations - and having great attendance is a great way to recognize our students as Dependable Condors.
