  • Dependable Condors 2015-2016 Attendance Program:

    At Kennedy Elementary we want to motivate and reward your student for good attendance. Our Dependable Condor award program will begin in September. We will look at student attendance each month. If your student is in their classroom on time, every day, with no absence or tardy within the month they will receive a voucher that can be used at one of the Kennedy "Stores" where they can purchase school supplies weekly or toys and other fun items 4 times during the school year. We will also have a display recognizing the students who were Dependable Condors!

    The following letter is coming home this week to inform parents/caregivers and students of the attendance policies at Kennedy.
