Our number one job as educators is to make sure our students are safe. One way in which we can go about ensuring that safety is through something called Speak Up Speak Out. Kennedy Middle School, in collaboration with our new School Resource Officer Kevin Laux, will be sharing Speak Up Speak Out information with students on Tuesday, September 13, 2022. Speak Out Speak Up is a centralized safety tool available 24/7 that allows anyone to report concerns (bullying, individual safety, threats, etc). The SUSO Resource center will respond to that report and find services to help those individuals. More information is on our KMS Website!
Crusaders! We are so excited for the upcoming CC season - we have over 100 runners out for this years team! First meets are next week where are Crusaders will travel to Port Washington and Menomonee Falls.
