KENNEDY PARENT'S SOCIETY

The meetings are open to all parents and guardians of students that attend Kennedy Elementary School. We like to have five "members at large" for voting purposes. You do not need to be at the first meeting to attend any other meetings. Parents and guardians are always welcome at any time during the year. We encourage you to come out whenever you can.

The Parent's Society is involved in and organized most of the large fundraising events for the school. Mom's Pantry Fundraiser is in the fall and a different one usually takes place in the spring. With the money raised with these events, the Parent's Society is able to help co-fund some of the special extra-curricular activities within and outside of school. Such as:

CULTURAL PRESENTATIONS

MUSIC/ART SUPPLIES

CLASS/SCHOOL FIELD TRIPS

SKATING

SWIMMING

STUDENT HOUSE COLOUR T-SHIRTS

Another major fundraising event is the Casino, which we have been a part of in the past, and are continuing with. We are signed up for our next one which is to take place in 2016. With this fundraising money Parent's Society has purchased in the past:

COMPUTERS FOR STUDENT USE

SMART BOARDS

SPORTS/MUSIC EQUIPMENT

SOUND SYSTEM

TABLES/CHAIRS

As per the Kennedy 2014-2015 calendar states: all fundraising done at Kennedy is to benefit the students. Monies raised by fundraising projects support library resources, technology resources, gym equipment and cultural activities.

If you would like to become more involved in your child/children's school life, please feel free to join us at a Parent's Society meeting anytime, we would love to have you.
