  • Watch D.O.G.S.:


    Pre-K through 5th grade parents: Kennedy is VERY proud of our Watch D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students) program. Dads, granddads, uncles, step-dads, and other positive role models of a Kennedy student...this is your chance to have another positive influence in the life of you student and their peers. Our goal is to have you spend at least one day this year at the school to be a positive male role model and to provide an extra set of eyes and ears.

    lf you are interested in being part of Watch D.O.G.S please contact Stacie Jackson, Communities in Schools Kennedy Elementary site coordinator at 785-330-1656.
