Dear Kennedy Families,
We hope you all enjoyed your summer and that you are excited to return to school! I could not be more honored to be the new Principal at Kennedy Elementary. I have previously served as a Dinuba High School teacher, Learning Director at Wilson Elementary and Assistant Principal at Dinuba High School. I look forward to continuing and building on the great work our previous Principal, Mrs. James, and Kennedy staff has accomplished. As a school, we are committed to continue to build traditions and create partnerships with parents and community.
Our students return to school on Monday, August 13th. This year Kennedy would like to invite our parents and students to attend and enjoy our first Welcome Back to School Breakfast on the first day of school. Breakfast will be served from 7:30 a.m. to 8:20 a.m. Our staff will be introduced at 8:10 a.m. Shortly after parents will be encouraged to walk their students to class to see their new class and meet their new teacher. We look forward to meeting and greeting our parents and students!
Each year brings positive change. This includes a few additions to our staff. We are thrilled to welcome 5th Grade Teacher Katrina Rios, 5th Grade Teacher Edgar Segura, RSP Teacher Derek Arenas, and Community Liaison Maria Estrada. Our new skilled and devoted staff members are enthusiastically already planning and preparing for your children.
We look forward to meeting you in the coming months and partnering with you to support your student’s success. Please do not hesitate to contact me via email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone at 559-595-7300 if you have questions or concerns. Together, I know we will make this school year one of growth and achievement for all our children.
