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

Hello Summer
Hello, Summer!


Our Kenny students and families worked SO hard this school year and we would like to wish all of you a very happy and restful summer!  We look forward to seeing our current and NEW students next Fall!  Just some reminders:

  • There are still quite a few books out on loan.  PLEASE return them to the bins in the front foyer ASAP!  The school will be open for one more week, so get them in!
  • Keep an eye out for the pick-up notice for this school year's yearbooks around the last week of June.  If you are unable to swing by the school, we will mail you your student's copy!  One copy is being provided to each student at no charge by the Kenny Parent Foundation (THANK YOU!)

We are SO thankful for our Kenny families for powering through another strange year with us.  Have a great summer!
