We will begin the process of student checkout today, Wednesday, May 24. What this means is that all students must pick up a check out sheet, get it signed and return it to the attendance office before leaving for leaving for the summer. The check-out sheet needs to be signed by teachers, IMC staff and a staff member near your locker location to show that your locker is cleaned out. Locker clean out will take place during SMART time as follows: 5/24 – 12th 5/25 – 11th 5/30 – 10th 5/31 – 9th
Library Hours extended: Open Wed. and Thurs. 3-4 p.m. Friday 1:30-2:30 p.m.
There will be a boys cross country meeting for any boys interested in running cross country next fall tomorrow, Thursday, May 25th in the West gym during smart time at 9:30. If you cannot attend the meeting, please see Coach Annis.
Kennedy High School’s Literary Magazine, The Plain Brown Wrapper, is proud to publish over 50 student artists and authors in this year’s magazine. Look for The PBW literary magazine to go on sale during finals week, May 31-June 2 for $4.00 apiece!
You are running out of time to order your yearbook. Please go to www.jostens.com and order today. All orders must be received by Friday, May 26th.
Students interested in earning money over the summer can pick up Detasseling information on the Job Bulletin board outside of the counseling office. This is for students 14 and older and takes place during a 3 week period in July. See Mr. Goodlove in you have questions.
On Monday June 5, Kennedy will host the Iowa College Access Network (ICAN) for a very informative evening that will help Kennedy families prepare for life after high school. We will offer two presentations: Career and College Planning (5:30 pm) and Financial Aid (7:00 pm). Both presentations will be held in the Auditorium. Families are invited to attend one or both presentations. We want to make sure families have an opportunity to access this important information while it is timely. Late spring/early summer is a critical time for current juniors to focus their post-secondary planning. It’s also an ideal time for current sophomores to get a leg up and seek to position themselves for their future pursuits. Please note this will be the ONLY presentation of this type offered at Kennedy for the 2017-18 school year. We hope you can join us on June 5 and get equipped with the knowledge you need to confidently move forward with career and college readiness planning.
The Cedar Rapids Community Schools wants to learn more about your technology use so we can better support your learning. We are asking you to participate in an anonymous questionnaire that will take about 10 minutes to complete. Please check your school email or the Canvas dashboard for a link to the survey. Your voice matters, it is important to us, and it will make the difference between having a complete versus a limited understanding of our district's technology use.
