KSS students help Food Shelf

foodshelfThe KSS Student Council held its annual Holiday food drive last week, bringing in donations of food to benefit the local food shelf.

Yesterday the Student Council representatives delivered 550 pounds of food items to the food shelf.

The need is great; food shelf workers indicate that they provide food for 60 or more families every few days.

THANK YOU to our students for helping provide food during the holiday season!

Senior mentorship program builds relationships

The Senior Mentorship program is coordinated by Tami Dahm, 2016-2017 AmeriCorps Promise Fellow, in conjunction with the Kennedy Secondary School counselors. KSS seniors apply for the program and, once accepted, are paired with a licensed K-5 grade teacher.

The main goal of the program is to focus exclusively on youth-to-youth relationships through positive, effective role modeling. Once a month Ms. Dahm meets with the students to guide reflections on their experiences in the classrooms.
