• Welcome!!  This page will be updated with the current racial equity work happening at Kennedy.  
     
    • Kennedy Elementary has embraced the racial equity goal set by our board of education by building a foundation of spaces in our building and in our schedule that are specifically set for working on racial equity with adults.  We are determined to do our part to close the achievement gap shown by our graduation rates.  
    • In September 2016, a group of educators from Kennedy traveled to Austin TX to be part of the National Summit for Courageous Conversations about Race.  These teachers have spent the last few months sharing what they have learned with the rest of our staff.  
    • On February 1st, 2017, Anthony Butler was a guest at our school.  He spent the morning with 4th and 5th graders teaching them to write spoken word poetry.  At the end of each session, the students were invited to share their spoken word with their class.  You can find out more about Anthony and his work at: Violence I Prevent
    • On February 10th, 2017, Kaana Watchman, Navajo, Senior, American Indian Studies at Haskell Indian Nations University visited Mrs. Mitchell's 4th grade class.  She led the students in a session about her family, the state of her reservation, and her artwork.
