Kenny School News

Kenny School has received its budget allocation for the 2017-2018 school year.  Due to overspending by the district for several years, schools are receiving a 2.5% budget decrease as Superintendent Graff works to get the district back on track.  Pushing all of our current programming forward using the 17-18 costs, our school is short $105,211 and will lose our half time Math Specialist.  We will work to be extremely creative in planning for next year.  Please see the link if you are interested in seeing the numbers:  2017-2018 Site Council Budget Packet

Kenny Park Playground Construction


Kenny Playground construction is scheduled to start, with the safety fencing being put in place as early as the week of Monday, September 20thOnce the safety fencing is in place, the playground will be CLOSED.  The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) hopes to complete this work in 6-8 weeks.

Construction activities will include:

  • Renovation of existing play areas and equipment and addition of some new play features
  • Construction of a new play area and climbing structure (made possible through a donation from the Kenny Parent Foundation)

During that time, please stay out of fenced areas and pay attention to the signage at the site.  Our students will enjoy their recess time on the Kenny fields during this construction time.

Here's a link to the plans for the improvements (with more pics of the other structures): Kenny Park Playground Improvements.
