Principal’s Message (5-27)

KHS Families!

I hope you are having a great week, and that you are preparing for the approaching weekend! We are getting closer and closer to the end of the school year, and I am encouraging all of your children to finish the school year on a positive note.

There are only 3 full school days before our half-days begin on June 7th, so your child’s best effort is critical during these final days. Please be sure to encourage them to complete any missing assignments, to get extra help from their teachers during Flex, and to prepare for their final exams, which begin for seniors next week and for underclassmen on June 7th. The schedule for exams was sent out a few weeks back, so please be sure to review it.

As we close out the week, here are a few reminders, notes, and updates:

1. There was no school on Monday, May 30th.

2. The KHS Senior Stroll was held on Wednesday, June 1st. Seniors must be passing all courses for the year in order to be able to participate.

3. Final Exams for seniors begin on Thursday, June 2nd and conclude Tuesday, June 7th. June 8th is an exam make-up day for seniors. If seniors are finished with all of their exams on June 7th, they do not need to attend school on June 8th.

4. Underclassmen Final Exams begin on Tuesday, June 7th and conclude Friday, June 10th.

5. Baccalaureate for seniors is Wednesday, June 8th from 5:00 – 5:45 pm in the KHS Auditorium. Seniors’ families are encouraged to attend with their child.

6. The KHS Senior Dinner Dance is scheduled for Wednesday, June 8th from 6:15 – 9:15 pm at The Creamery in Kennett Square.

7. Graduation is scheduled for Friday, June 10th at 6:00 pm on the front steps of KHS.

8. The last day of school for underclassmen is Friday, June 10th.

9. A reminder to families of juniors who have yet to complete their artifacts for College and Career Readiness and/or their KHS Graduation Project, if juniors do not have these complete by Friday, June 3rd, they will be ineligible for Senior Option, a Senior Parking spot, and next year’s Homecoming Dance. Please mark sure these requirements are complete by June 3rd. If your child need assistance, please contact Dr. Tamargo at atamargo@kcsd.org.

10. As we approach the end of the school year, students should begin gathering and preparing their materials (books, laptops, etc.) for return. Teachers will communicate specific details in terms of when these items must be collected. Please be reminded that materials that are not returned will result in students being billed for the cost of the missing materials.

11. Attention families of Juniors, Class of 2023. Information regarding Senior Parking Spot Requests has been emailed, messaged via Schoology, and posted in Schoology to every Junior. Please remind your child to check their emails or Schoology to complete the senior parking spot google request form. The deadline to request a senior parking spot is June 10th at 11:59 p.m.

That is all for today! Have a great weekend!

Thank you,

KHS ARTISTS EXHIBIT WORK

Dozens of Kennett High School artists displayed their talents for their fellow students, teachers, staff, and parents at the school’s annual art show held in the auxiliary gym on April 29.

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 Show was an exhibit of work by students from grades 9 through 12 featuring drawings, paintings, ceramics, digital photographs, and graphic designs. Congratulations to the students in the Visual Arts Department on their excellent work this year.”

“The high school art show is a special day for Kennett High School art students. Not only do the students get to show off their skills, but it’s also an opportunity for the KHS staff and students to see their incredible talents and achievements. It’s their day. They work extremely hard throughout the school year to get better at their craft. The art show is their opportunity to be celebrated for all of that hard work and dedication throughout the course for the year. They absolutely deserve all of the accolades they receive,” added Mr. Hironimus.

“The KHS Annual Art show is always one of my favorite events of the year for my students. We have live demos and artwork from Introduction to Ceramic students to Honors 4s. After the pause we had on the show because of COVID for the past two years, it was nice to be back in the swing of things and see the students showcasing their work. The gym was buzzing with positive energy as teachers brought down their classes throughout the day to see the Art Show,” said Ms. Davidson. Her students demonstrated their skills throughout the day, as they took turns throwing pieces on a pottery wheel.

By all accounts, the show was a tremendous success.

Kennett High School Artist Wins Big at Chester County Show

Kennett High School sophomore Emily Hoppenjans was recognized for her exceptional talent at the 2022 Chester County High School and 6th Congressional District Art Exhibition. Emily’s untitled charcoal portrait of Billie Eilish won first place honors in the drawing category.

Art students from schools across Chester County entered nearly 500 pieces in the show that ran from April 8 through April 22 at the Chester County Art Association.

Emily is a student of art teacher Mr. Tom Hironimus. She has taken both the intro and studio art courses with Hironimus, the 2018 recipient of the Chester County Art Association Excellence in Teaching Award.

Emily Hoppenjans charcoal piece

Untitled piece by Emily Hoppenjans

When asked about the inspiration behind her piece, Emily said the idea actually came from her sister. Tasked by Mr. Hironimus with creating a charcoal portrait, Emily was excited since charcoal is her “favorite medium so far” but says she couldn’t decide on a subject.

“I asked my sister who she thought I should draw, and she said she wanted me to draw Billie Eilish because we both enjoy her music,” explained Emily.

Emily has loved art for as long as she can remember.

“In fact, whenever we went to my grandparents’ house when I was little, I would go straight into the basement and pull out a big bin of paper and markers, and I would draw. I did not take art seriously or realize I had a talent for it until eighth grade,” she said.

Even though college is still a few years away, Emily is considering a potential minor in art, and she definitely sees art as part of her future.

“Even if I don’t incorporate art into my career, it will always be a hobby of mine,” she said.

Understandably, Mr. Hironimus had high praise for his student.

“It is always an honor to have a student be recognized for their hard work. Emily is an extremely talented young woman whose outstanding work was acknowledged with this prestigious award,” he said.

A Message From Dr. Hritz

Happy Friday KHS Families,

I hope all of you have had a great week and that you are ready for a relaxing weekend! Our school year is drawing to a close, as we only have 29 school days remaining in the year. Since we are nearly halfway through the 4th marking period, please encourage your children to give their best effort in the classroom to finish the school year on a positive note.

Here are a few notes as we move into the weekend:

1) Our next PTSO Meeting (virtual) is scheduled for Tuesday, May 3rd at 6:00 pm. The link for this meeting will be sent the morning of May 3rd. This is the final PTSO for the school year!

2) A reminder that AP testing begins on Monday, May 2nd and will conclude Friday, May 13th. The students who are taking AP Exams have been notified with their testing schedule and exam locations.

Additionally, Keystone Exams are scheduled to begin May 16th and will continue through May 24th. Students who are testing will be notified by the school with their testing information. As we did last school year, we will follow a modified schedule during Keystone Exams. Students who are not taking the Keystone Exams and who do not require district provided transportation to school will be permitted to arrive at school after testing has finished for the day at 9:50 am. Students who are not testing are to arrive at KHS between 9:50 and 10:00. The first class will begin promptly at 10:00 each day. Students who are not taking the Keystone Exams and require district transportation to school on the Keystone Exam dates, should take their normally scheduled bus to school. These students will report to the cafeteria for the duration of testing each morning.

3) Final Exams for seniors are scheduled from Thursday, June 2nd through Tuesday, June 7th. Final Exams for underclassmen are scheduled from Tuesday, June 7th through Friday, June 10th. Please note that June 7th through June 10th are half-days of school for students. Additionally, please note that the weight of final exams has been adjusted for this year. Instead of counting for 15% of the overall grade for the school year, they will now count for 15% of the 4th marking period grade. Students, please ensure you are prepared to demonstrate mastery of your courses on your final exams and give your best effort. A message will be sent next week with the schedule and full details for final exams.

4) Tuesday, May 17th in an Asynchronous Learning Day for students. There is no school for students on Monday, May 30th in observation of the Memorial Day holiday.

5) Just a reminder that Teacher Appreciation Week is next week. Please consider making an effort to share your gratitude and appreciation for your child’s teachers next week!

6) Finally, Prom returns to the DuPont Country Club in Delaware, and we are very excited for our students to have this opportunity to celebrate! We hope all attendees have a safe, enjoyable, and memorable experience!

That is all for today! Have a great Friday, and an even better weekend!

Thank you,

Jeremy Hritz, Ed.D.

Principal’s Message- 3.18.22

Happy Friday Kennett High School Families!

I hope all of you have had a great week!

I want to start my weekly email with a few important numbers for all of you before we move into the weekend:

  • There are 7 school days remaining in marking period #3;
  • There are 15 school days before the start of spring break (9 days off for students!); and
  • There are 52 school days remaining in the year.

The school year is moving quickly, and soon, we will be in the final marking period, making the push to graduation. I want to remind families of the importance of students giving their best effort in the classroom, seeking additional help from their teachers during Flex, and finishing the school year on a positive note. My primary goal as principal is our students’ success, and your support and reinforcement of this expectation is tremendously appreciated. If I can be of any assistance to your child, please do not hesitate to let me know.

Here are a few notes, updates, and reminders as we close out the day:

8. SPORTS: Students who plan on attending any spring sporting events and participating in the student sections, there will be a required meeting with Mr. Harvey and the principals on Tuesday, March 29th during 8th Block Flex.

Changes to the 2021-22 Calendar

Dear Families,

During this Academic Year, the Kennett Consolidated School District (KCSD) has experienced two inclement weather days that will need to be made up in order to meet the Pennsylvania Department of Education’s (PDE) requirements for instructional time.

Understanding this, the district has made the following changes to the 2021-22 Academic Calendar:

While March 16th and May 17th will continue to be scheduled professional development days for our staff, students are now expected to participate to the best of their ability in online learning via Microsoft Teams and Schoology.

Elementary students should join their morning meeting from 8:45 to 9:45 a.m. via Microsoft Teams. Secondary students may log into Teams for live office hours with any of their teachers at the same time. Otherwise, assignments will be available on-demand via Schoology.

To log in, all are encouraged to visit KCSD’s Clever Portal using a Chrome Browser.

Questions? Please contact KCSD Communications Specialist Nikki Laws anytime at (610) 444-6646 or nlaws@kcsd.org.
