The Mr. KHS pageant will be held on Thursday, February 14th. It is open to gentlemen of all grades. An informational meeting will be held on January 3rd in the auditorium during advisory and after school. You only have to attend one to register.
It’s that time of year again! It’s time for the School Store’s Annual Blue Friday Sale.
On Friday, December 14, please enjoy 20% off of all school store apparel. The store will be open from 7:30-7:45. This is a great time to pick up holiday gifts or just stock up on spirit wear for yourself.
Remember it is Friday, December 14. Email Colleen Barber if you would like to place an order.
Inventory includes: Crew neck blue sweatshirt, Hooded grey sweatshirt, grey sweatpants, various long and short sleeve teeshirts, and accessories like book bags, water bottles, hats, baseball caps, and more!
Nearly fifty pieces, including beautiful wheel-thrown mugs, bowls, and vases as well as hand-built holiday pieces like Christmas trees and plates, will be available for purchase at this year’s Ceramics Sale at Kennett High School. All works were crafted by students in teacher Jodi Davidson’s ceramics classes, levels I through IV.
Nine years ago, Davidson and her students developed this creative way to add to their annual budget, with all proceeds from the sale helping to support the purchase of materials like clay and glaze for future projects.
Davidson noted, “The items available for sale are of the same hand-crafted quality you’d find at a store or online. We sell them for a fraction of the cost to make it affordable for people to purchase pieces as gifts. The students have created some amazing work, and the money goes directly back into our program.” Last year’s sale raised approximately $500.
The sale will be held in the school’s lobby on December 14, 2018, and will be open to the public from 9 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Prices range from $5 to $35.

KHS Alumni Day Procedures 2018
On Friday, December 21st from 8:30 – 10:30 AM, we will be hosting Kennett High School graduates for our annual Alumni Day. With the recent changes in our safety procedures, this event will be conducted a bit differently this year.
All alumni visitors will have to follow guest sign-in procedures and have their driver’s licenses scanned and held to obtain a visitor’s pass. Once alumni guests receive this pass, they may access the main lobby and auditorium to enjoy holiday music presented by our wonderful students, meet with available staff members in the main lobby and auditorium, in addition to enjoying some light refreshments.
As part of our changes regarding visitors to the building, alumni guests will not be permitted in any other area of the building unless they are escorted by a staff member. The only areas accessible during this event will be the auditorium and the main lobby.
We are looking forward to seeing our graduates and wish everyone a happy and healthy holiday season!
Join us on Thursday, Friday, or Saturday evenings, November 15 through 17.
The play, written by Joe Landry, innovatively re-imagines the time-honored American holiday classic, Frank Capra’s 1946 film It’s a Wonderful Life, as a live 1940s radio broadcast. With the help of a talented ensemble cast that brings a few dozen characters to the stage, the beloved story of George Bailey (Evan Shinn) unfolds as he considers ending his life one fateful Christmas Eve. With the help of angel Clarence (Justin McAndrew), the idealistic Bailey travels back in time to revisit his life’s most significant events and recall all those who played a part in them, including his wife Mary (Holly Gouge), his brother Harry (Christian Adam), his daughters Janie and Zuzu (Sylvia He and Marisol Gonzalez), town pharmacist Mr. Gower (Robbie Rauscher), and tavern-owner Mrs. Martini (Mirella Petrillo). Despite the constant efforts of Bailey’s crotchety rival Mr. Potter (Colin Petersen) to bankrupt Bailey, George ultimately sees the worth of his life’s contributions and realizes his town’s love for him is far more valuable than money.
Other cast members include Lilian Alba (Violet), Kassandra Ayllon (Matilda), Anna Brunke (Rose), Gia Caccamo (Mrs. Thompson), Avery Chapman (Sadie), Emma Giancola (Mrs. Hatch), Julia Haenn (Young George, Young Peter), Tamblyn Mitchell (Ruth), Eric Salameda (Freddie Filmore, Mr. Welch, Uncle Billy), and Catt Seamon (Young Harry, Young Tommy).
Nance Weber, parent of Kennett grads A.J. (class of 2013) and Jack (class of 2015), is directing her fourth production at Kennett High School. Kennett teacher Katie Soukup is the production manager; Soukup and Weber are also overseeing properties, with costumes by Tricia Beichner. Science teacher Michael Anastas is in charge of sound and lights. Nat Caccamo and Paul Gouge built this year’s set, with set painting design by Caccamo and Liz D’Wolf. Anna Brunke is the student production assistant.
Both the cast and stage crew include students from all grades.
