This past month, the consultant to our international program, Mariko Fujiwara, arranged for a trip to Korea with the sole purpose of reengaging with a country that at one time was strongly represented at Kennedy Catholic.
Share the date! Consider extending an invitation to a prospective family to join us at our Open House on November 1 from 6:30pm-8:30pm. As members of the Lancer family, your voice speaks volumes. A personal invitation to a friend, neighbor or colleague to experience the educational excellence at Kennedy Catholic is priceless. You can also help us spread the word by distributing Open House flyers to middle schools and businesses in your neighborhood. Please contact the Admissions Department so we can provide you with the necessary materials.
It's almost Halloween time! Once again, we will host Trick or Treating for our littlest Lancers on Friday, October 27, from 3pm-4pm.

Join us for trick or treating through the halls of Kennedy Catholic, along with spooky science projects hosted by our Science Club in the Dillman Center. For any questions, please contact Rebecca Nuffer. We hope to see you there!

THANK YOU to all who helped make the Senior Party Pie Sale such a great success! We raised over $1,000 to help defray event costs and even better, to help with scholarships. Several families also donated pies to KOOCS - a reminder as to what a generous community we have at Kennedy Catholic! Many thanks to the terrific volunteers who loaded, unloaded, lent coolers and cars, wrapped and distributed pies - Christy Khalaf, Kevin Elicker, Scott Obrigewitsch, Tam Nguyen and Mike Seifert, as well as the Development team for getting the word out, Heidi Martin for ongoing office support (with a smile!), and Jim McLaughlin for the much-needed parking spot. It would not have been a success without your help!
