Kenny Named 2014 Celebration School

Congratulations Kenny School - the only Minneapolis Public School named a 2014 "Celebration School" by the Minnesota Department of Education. Celebration schools are those recognized for efforts to increase student achievement.

Read the DofE release here.

This is the 3rd year Kenny has received this distinguished recognition. 

Budget Update
Thursday, March 05, 2015 11:10 AM

Allocations from district are coming out Friday.

Unfortunately, we lost our Title 1 funding. Title 1 funding is based on Free and Reduced Lunch as of 10-1-1914. This year we were very close, but fell below the 35%.threshhold.

The district is moving toward student based allocations in the next 2 years. Schools are not supposed to be impacted by more than 5% either way, we are hoping to be within 5% of last years bottom line.

 At Kenny we work within providing minimal programming and safe environment. We have a great literacy program and are implementing new math models. We match these intervention programs with safety positions (lunch/recess).

 We have 16 classrooms this year. ASD money and Title 1 money are restricted for those uses only.

 Next year we may be allocated 17 classrooms and the district is looking at reduced class sizes in K-3. Since we do not have space at Kenny for many additional classrooms, we might be able to retain some of those funds as intervention money.

The final budget will be submitted before spring break.

Kenny Kares Giving Tree
Friday, November 21, 2014 1:20 PM

Dear Kenny Families, 


I am excited to announce Kenny School is unveiling a new family and community giving project. We will now have a Kenny Kares Giving Tree. Kenny Kares will help build our Kenny community and meet the needs of our students, families and staff. The tree symbolizes strength and growth, by giving we create a strong community allowing all to grow. On the Kenny Kares board (outside of the main office) there is a list of items currently needed. There is a place next to each item to sign up if you are able to donate the requested item. To make a request for a specific need, forms are available in the office. You can also sign up to donate an item or make a request for an item via our online forms. I have been working  closely with a few Kenny parents to get this project up and running. This would not be possible without their dedication, passion, compassion and energy.  Below you will find the web links to access the request form and donate form (which allows you to see the current items needed). I look forward to watching the positive impact this project will have on our awesome Kenny students and families.
