Please join us in the High School Auditorium for an evening program on Tuesday, Oct. 18 at 6:45 P.M. as part of our fight against drug abuse.
KCSD will host an All In Against Drugs Night for all district parents (grades K to 12). Featured will be a video created by the FBI called “Chasing the Dragon,” which graphically illustrates the horrors of opiate drug use. Though we have no knowledge that this is an issue in our community, stories about opiate drugs have been in the news, and we want to give you an opportunity to learn more about the problem.
Also on the program will be presentations by FBI agent and Unionville parent Kevin McShane and Kennett High School counselor Fran Ryan. They will offer valuable advice about keeping our children drug-free and safe.
You will receive an “All In” t-shirt and a t-shirt to take home for each of your children. Though we must limit attendance at this program to adults only, you will learn how you can view this video at home with your children.
All of us at KCSD urge you to attend. We want to be your partners … to help you stay well-informed … to help you be better prepared … so that you can help your children make positive choices and avoid starting on a pathway to drug abuse.
I look forward to seeing you on Oct. 18.
Barry Tomasetti, Superintendent
Kennett Consolidated School District

Each year in February, third grade students at Bancroft Elementary School participate in Law Day to highlight the social studies curriculum study of American government. Bancroft Elementary School parent and lawyer, Mr. Donald Kohler, visits the school to teach students about the different parts of a legal proceeding and plays the judge. Third grade students take part in a skit about a bus law case. Students take part in this mock interactive trial by serving as various members in the case. They memorize lines and help reach a verdict while increasing their reading fluency.
Bancroft Elementary School’s second grade students read Jamaica Louise James, by Amy Hest, in their Storytown reading book. This story is about a young girl, Jamaica, and her grandmother who work in the subway station. In order to brighten up the colorless and empty subway walls, Jamaica draws pictures of the many people her grandmother describes to her. Besides bringing life to the subway station, it also makes all the real people of Jamaica’s drawings happy to see themselves through the artwork. The second grade students did the same thing as Jamaica, but for Bancroft Elementary School staff by drawing a different staff member and hanging them up to brighten Bancroft’s walls.
