The Kennedy Cardinals, with the help of local law enforcement, had a nice Halloween Parade in front of their school on Woodlawn. The path took them across Woodlawn so traffic was curtailed for a short while during the parade. The kids appreciated everyone's assistance with all of that, including the volunteers from the City, the High School, and other places who helped with the event as well, handing out candy along the parade route to the costumed students as they passed by. Big smiles on a lot of faces.
The Cardinals at Kennedy Elementary recently held their OCTOBER CHARACTER ASSEMBLY and learned about "RESPONSIBILITY"...students of the month for October were also presented - we'll be sharing all of the District's October Students of the Month soon!!

Kennedy Elementary staff and students, held their annual fundraising "GLOW RUN" event, Saturday evening which is basically a fun night, correction, a very fun night for all that attend. Students participate in a variety of events, including cake walks (my favorite), glow ring toss, and more. Face paint artists were on hand, resulting in some pretty scary looking Cardinals running about. :)
Local members of the community, including EMS / FIRE / POLICE & SHERIFF personnel, upperclassmen from WHS, and others, shared their time with many young CARDINALS Wednesday morning at Kennedy Elementary. Donuts, coffee & juice were served - a great way to start the day for all in attendance! GO CARDINALS!!
Wednesday was "Donuts for Grown Ups" at Kennedy Elementary. Lots of students, lots of parents and families, and lots of WHS Leadership students on hand as well, all present for the early morning gathering. An assembly followed the event, WHS Leadership Students Dominic Shore and Natalie Henning talked to the children about responsibility. Students of the Month for October were announced - we'll have those for you, along with the other schools' honorees in early November!!
