Kennett High School Seniors to Participate in Annual Senior Stroll

On Thursday, May 31, more than 300 members of Kennett High School’s Class of 2018 will participate in the 3rd annual Senior Stroll. More students have opted to take part in the Stroll this year than in previous years.

The Stroll is an opportunity for graduating seniors to say farewell and thank you to all of their former teachers while inspiring younger students to work hard for their futures. The class of 2018, clad in cap and gown, will visit Mary D. Lang Kindergarten Center, New Garden Elementary, Greenwood Elementary, Bancroft Elementary, and Kennett Middle School. The hallways of all buildings will be lined with teachers and students cheering on and wishing good luck to the soon-to-be graduates. For the first time, members of the graduating class will be wearing name tags that are color-coded based on the elementary school that they attended, so former students are easily identified as they enter their old school buildings.

Dr. Jeremy Hritz instituted the Stroll in his first year as Kennett High School principal.

“The idea actually came from Mrs. Christina Gorman, mother of Aodhan (class of 2016) and Ronan (class of 2020), so I can’t take the credit for it. But it’s a great idea. The kids are really enthusiastic about it.”

Senior Katherine Clarke said, “I’m really excited. I haven’t been back to see any of my elementary school teachers since I left for middle school.”

Katherine, like many of her classmates, attended Kennett Consolidated schools from kindergarten through twelfth grade. “We all transitioned from elementary school to middle school and then middle school to high school, but this is like one final good-bye to everyone,” she added.

Kennett High School’s 127th commencement exercises will be held on June 8.

Multicultural Conference Challenges Students to Change the World

In April, Kennett High School welcomed high school students, teachers, and school personnel to the 17th Annual Multicultural and Diversity Awareness Conference. The day was full of thought-provoking workshops organized by a student committee and led by students, educators, and adults who are all well versed in multicultural affairs. The event was kicked off by Mr. Ray Fernandez, the program coordinator and the assistant principal of Kennett High School.

Mr. Fernandez opened the gathering by sharing that the conference is the highlight of the school year for him. “Every year,” he announced, “I look forward to this special event because it’s an awesome opportunity for all of us to not only learn, but to participate and receive a positive and rewarding experience.”

He continued by encouraging the students attending to become involved in the discussions throughout the day. “We want you to be an active participant, not a passive listener,” he said. “Listen, but also speak and ask questions, as well. Offer your thoughts and opinions.”

Following the thoughtful words of Mr. Fernandez, the superintendent of Kennett Consolidated School District, Dr. Barry Tomasetti, took the opportunity to say a few words and to applaud Mr. Fernandez’ hard work in making the Multicultural and Diversity Conference a highly anticipated event hosted by the District for 17 years.

Next to the podium was Kennett High School freshman Johnette Boddy who eloquently introduced the influential keynote speaker, Mr. John Suggs, community activist and executive director of CF Charities in Philadelphia.

The day included two workshop sessions, a wonderful lunch buffet filled with options that reflected the diverse backgrounds of the students, and a presentation by Emmy Award–winning HBO Associate Producer and Editor Mr. Courtland Bragg. Following the afternoon workshops, the day concluded with a student talent show.

Keyanna has volunteered at the conference since her freshman year. She is a member of both UNIDAD and Ujima, student groups focusing on Latino and African-American student leadership.

“I enjoy the Multicultural Conference because it enables me to step out of my comfort zone,” Keyanna says. “I get to meet new people and share ideas.”

Mrs. Tania Ramos Oton, a teacher from Esperanza Academy in Philadelphia, has been bringing students to the Multicultural and Diversity Awareness Conference for years. She comments that she welcomes the opportunity to expose her students from North Philadelphia to a youth conference about diversity. Two of her students, sophomore Wily Lopez and freshman Andrick Medrano, were looking forward to their workshop choices, stating that both held the potential to help them in their daily lives.

Students from 16 different schools attended the conference. All took away a heightened appreciation for their diverse cultural backgrounds. Mr. Fernandez explains that, “We are all unique, but we share the same dreams, struggles, and fears. It is this joining together and the safe space we provide at this conference that helps students realize that although we may be slightly different on the outside, we are all the same on the inside.”

KHS ART EXHIBIT

KHS Artists Exhibit Work

Kennett High School artists displayed their talents for their fellow students, teachers, staff, and parents. The annual art show was held in the school’s auxiliary gym on May 3.

The show included works from all visual arts classes within the Fine Arts Department. Teachers Ms. Jodi Davidson, Mr. Tom Hironimus, and Mrs. Kathy Caputo Nelms guided their students through the creation and exhibition of their artwork; all three teachers are undeniably impressed by their students.

Mrs. Caputo Nelms said, “The KHS Art Exhibit showcased the creativity of our student artists with a wide range of work. On display this year were drawings, paintings, ceramics, digital photographs, and graphic designs. The art students worked very hard all year toward this culminating event where their creations were displayed for the entire Kennett High School community.”

“Kennett High School art students are extremely hard working and incredibly talented. They are dedicated to getting better every day and being the best they can be. It is a blessing to be surrounded by such enthusiastic and committed students,” added Mr. Hironimus.

“The Kennett High School students in our ceramics classroom constantly amaze me with their dedication, creativity, and willingness to explore new techniques and challenge themselves daily. I love working with the kids here at Kennett High School, and each day is a new opportunity for everyone to continue to learn and grow as a student of life,” said Ms. Davidson. Her students demonstrated their skills throughout the day, as they took turns throwing pieces on a pottery wheel.

Charlie Lewis, former Kennett Middle School teacher who creates etchings, also displayed his work. And, Mini-THON and the Gender Sexuality Alliance (GSA) used the opportunity to disseminate information and raise funds for their organizations. Mrs. Susan Larson’s students served fresh baked cookies to attendees who also enjoyed cupcakes made by Mrs. Rachel Moreira’s classes, while Mr. Chu’s Introduction to Engineering Design students displayed some of their automata, creative toys with moving parts. By all accounts, the show was a success!
