• Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year!

     

    My name is Lori Higgins.  It is my privilege to serve as the Principal of Kennedy Elementary School.  I am excited for the coming year and the opportunities awaiting us.  It is also an honor for me to work alongside the amazing staff of Kennedy.  This will be a great year of learning and growth for all.   As educators, we are extremely appreciative of the families in our community who show consistent support of this important work.  We are confident in creating partnerships within our community that will ultimately lead to higher levels of student success and the continued development of ALL our children.

    This school year is not like any other, however I do know we will work together as a district, school, and community for our students and their educational needs.

    We hold high standards; academically, behaviorally, and socially. We ARE focused on the growth of EACH child in all three areas whether we are in-person learn, Hybrid Learning, or in Comprehensive Distance Learning.  Our school follows a Positive Behavior Support  (PBiS) model focused on three simple expectations. Be Safe, Be Responsible, and Be Respectful- to ourselves and others.  These expectations will be reinforced / rewarded daily.

    It is my goal to encourage open communication, to challenge each to grow, and as a team help build student success.  We are “Preparing Our Students Today, for Tomorrow”.  We are in this together!  Building success and positive school experiences takes a community. Parent involvement in school endeavours is vital for student success. Parents are a key piece in the puzzle in regards to a child’s education.  We believe in the partnership between home and school.

    We are glad you are a part of our Kennedy community with us this year, and we want to assure you that we will do our very best to help your child experience academic, social and emotional growth. With your help and cooperation, this will be an excellent school year. I would like to extend a Kennedy Patriot welcome to our new families and a welcome back to those returning to Kennedy.

    The staff at Kennedy are looking forward to a fabulous fun-filled year of learning and growing together! Thank you for sending your child to our school each day!
