Hello Seniors and KHS Families!
Graduation is getting closer, and several celebratory events are approaching on the calendar! This is a special time of year for our seniors, as they are enjoying their final days as a student in the Kennett Consolidated School District. There is no question that this school year has been challenging, demanding, and frustrating, but our senior class has persevered in spite of the adversity. With decreasing COVID cases and the number of individuals with COVID vaccinations increasing, we are able to offer a multitude of senior celebrations for our deserving graduates. As we get closer to these events, I wanted to take a moment to remind everyone of everything to look forward to for our senior class!
Finally, please note that a letter will be sent home next week that includes the specific details and parameters for our graduation ceremony. Please be on the lookout for this information for your planning purposes.
