Dear Parents/Guardians, Students and Community Stakeholders,
It is a pleasure to serve as the Principal of Kennedy Middle School. We look forward to a fantastic school year. I would like to share with you that our motto for this school year is “Committed to Excellence”. The word “Excellence” sums up our goals and desires for student academic ...success.
In our school, learning will be a collaborative effort and you and I have a common goal… to help our children become lifelong learners and productive, responsible citizens. To do this, we will use every available resource and every minute of the day to enrich teaching and learning.
Thank you in advance for the enthusiasm and caring spirit you will bring to our school. We believe that the energy our students have for learning will come from the collaboration contributed by each of you.
Dr. Shirlene B. Carter
