A Message From Principal Bryan:
Greetings Kenny Community,
First, I am so proud of our new Level-1 status in the Boston Public Schools! This is the direct result of our shared commitment to the success of our students. Together as students, staff, families, and partners, we continue to create an educational environment that prepares Kenny students to succeed as leaders in high school, college and beyond.
In just the first three months of school, students have been to the Boston Children’s Museum, The Boston Ballet, The Historic Pierce House, Gillette Stadium, the Adams Street Library and more. They’ve welcomed visitors from the MBTA, participated in theater activities through our CityStage Co. partnership, learned sportsmanship during Class Game Time hosted by playworks, and have earned hundreds of Paws for demonstrating our Kenny P.R.I.D.E. values.
Students have worked hard to meet and exceed standards on district assessments, demonstrate perseverance with our newly implemented and very rigorous math curriculum, written personal essays, hosted readings for families, engineered inventions in science, planted seeds with Green City Growers, and prepared healthy meals with FoodCorps.
All Kenny parents, particularly those on our School Parent Council and School Site Council, deserve special recognition. In just the first three months of school they have organized fundraising bake sales, surprised the staff with a number of appreciation breakfasts, and even supplied food and beverages for our all-staff professional development. Thank you!
The entire community came together to donate hundreds of items for our “Everything But the Turkey” food drive. The generosity of our families brought our Thanksgiving donations to an all-time high!
Kenny Parent Council and School Site Council families have put increasing voice and momentum into our desire to expand to a K-6 school at recent School Committee and BuildBPS meetings, and even spoke with prospective families at the Citywide BPS Showcase at Boston City Hall.
The format of the Kenny Connection allows students to take home paper versions to save and share with family and friends. Access the document online to see the photos in full color! For the privacy of our students and families, the paper version given to students contains the password to open this document. You can also call the school for the password if you lose it!
As you will see in this issue of the Kenny Connection, so much has happened this school year, and so much is yet to come. Thank you for your continued support of our school community. Please don’t hesitate to contact your child’s teacher with any questions or to request additional information. You may also contact the school to schedule a meeting at 617-635-8789.
Principal, Kenny Elementary School
