Harlem Wizards To Play at Kennett High School

Come join in a night of family fun as KCSD teachers and administrators play the Harlem Wizards on Saturday, February 9, 2019, at 6:00 p.m. in Kennett High School’s Reynolds Gymnasium. The Wizards are a performance basketball team delivering widely successful fundraising events for schools and nonprofits, playing in more than 400 communities across the U.S. last season while raising millions of dollars. They are a unique basketball team that is not primarily focused on winning games, but instead on entertaining the crowd with a variety of basketball tricks and alley oops.

Tickets to last year’s Wizards game sold out quickly, and a sell-out is expected again this year. Advance tickets are $10 for students and $12 for adults; children under 5 are admitted free of charge.

This year there will be two methods to purchase tickets:

  1. Beginning Thursday, January 3, 2019, at 4:00 p.m., tickets can be purchased online at HarlemWizards.com.
  1. For families who prefer to purchase tickets using cash or check, there will be a limited window of opportunity to do so. These tickets will be available in the lobby of Kennett High School and can only be purchased at the following times:
    • Thursday, January 3 and Friday, January 4 from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
    • Saturday, January 5 from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Depending on the volume of advance sales, some tickets may be available at the door: $12 for students and $14 for adults.

All proceeds benefit Kennett High School’s MiniTHON, a club based on Penn State’s THON that raises funds to support Four Diamonds, an organization dedicated to funding research for childhood cancer and helping affected families with the cost of treatment. For more information about MiniTHON and how to donate to the cause, email khsminithon2018@gmail.com.

The Kennett High School MiniTHON committee is hopeful that the whole Kennett community will come together for one great night on February 9. Doors open at 5:00 p.m.!

Ceramics Holiday Sale

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.

Alumni Day 2018

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!
