  • hi my name is simrana birk and i really think that kennedy is a really good school and i look forward to going there. now i can't because they will not close the school but they are not having 6th graders anymore. how is (...) saving money or getting any if we don't open our lookouts and let 6th graders come in. people who don't like kennedy do not really know anything about the school, because it's amazing. The teachers are respectful and the students are less rude to other than they have been in a really long time. I know because my brother (...) goes there. Thanks for taking the time out of your busy day to read this and please take it to thinking to consider letting 6th graders come and get the chance to learn.

  • I think with everything going on right now at this school, someone just pulled the fire alarm at the school and the one that was pulled a while back ago was because we had to tuck our shirts, if students could just not wear uniforms two times a week you will see improvement because thats all the students wanted and thats what i want, no one wants this to happen and if we could just get two days off without wearing a uniform each week we'll all be happy.
    I can't say this school is not improving but everyone needs a chance to learn better and every time this happens our learning is being distracted with fights,disrespect,and rudeness.Everything has a purpose and this school shouldn't have uniforms at all.
