PSAT Presentations and Junior Planning Meetings

The school counselors at Kennett High School will be busy visiting classrooms of juniors during the week beginning January 11. Juniors will receive their PSAT scores in one meeting with directions for setting up a College Board account and linking their accounts to the free online SAT preparation program offered by the Khan Academy. A second set of classroom visits will provide our juniors with information about the SAT and ACT exams. This information will include registration directions, score sending options, and test taking tips.

KHS CERAMICS SALE SUPPORTS PROGRAM

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 Ms. Jodi Davidson’s ceramics classes, levels I through III.

Ceramics

Eight years ago, Ms. 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.

Ms. Davidson noted, “The items available for sale are of the same hand-crafted quality you’d find at an expensive gallery, but we sell them for a fraction of the cost. 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 19, 2017, and will be open to the public from 8 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Prices range from $5 to $35.
