Dear Kennedy Community,
Welcome to the 2017-18 school year! I am excited to kick off the school year. I have heard all of the wonderful traditions that are a part of the community and I am eager to see these traditions come to life.
Having grown up in this community, I also am excited to work with each and every one of you. I will continue to say that I believe our neighborhood is rich in culture, language, and experience. We have so much to offer the world and I will do all I can to support and advocate for our community.
The teachers have been hard at work to prepare for an outstanding year, filled with adventures and learning! The commitment I have seen in the short time I have been here, let's me know that your children are in good hands. We pride ourselves in being a Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) Academy, and we will be working to strengthen our program, so that your child is provided with the highest quality education. With that in mind we will also continue to build on language and literacy instruction, because a child who reads has endless possibilities and the world at their fingertips!
I am excited to partner with you, in order to make Kennedy the place we all call home and an integral part of your child's educational journey. Please join us at our monthly Coffee with the Principal. I would also encourage you to reach out to your child's teacher and find ways to support the learning and the classroom and at home! Please reach out to me any time for any support that you may need from me.
I'm looking forward to a fantastic year.
Mariana Alvarez, Principal
