Principal's Message

    "Students don't care how much we know until they know how much we care"

    Well summer is rapidly drawing to a close and we will be welcoming back our children before you know it.  Mr. Marco and his crew have been cleaning every nook and cranny of the cleanest school in Roxbury and it's looking great for September.  The teachers have started coming in already and the classrooms and bulletin boards are starting to take shape.

    Some important dates to remember:

    Kennedy School visitation - August 24 (1-3 PM) and 25 (9-11 AM) - (Teachers may or may not be present on these days!)

    September 1 - Teachers return to school

    September 6 - Students return to school

    September 16 - PTA welcome back BBQ

    September 21 - Kennedy's Back to School Night

    We hope that you have had a safe and enjoyable summer and we look forward to seeing everyone soon!

    Mr. Eric Renfors
