Please review this schedule for the first week of school.
Recently, I had the occasion to speak to a group of Filipino mothers on the merits of Catholic education, a function of my job whether at open house, regional nights, coffee with the president or after the 10am Sunday Mass. What made this conversation unique? They were skyping me from a hotel in downtown Manila at 1:00am PST in the morning.
The 2018-19 Book List is available on the Kennedy Catholic website. Books are available through the University of Washington Bookstore or through Amazon.com or any other online seller.

Summer is a great time to get an updated sports physical, especially if you are new to the school or yours has expired. Physicals are good for two years from the date of the exam and must remain valid throughout the sports season. Fall athletes will need a current, hard-copy physical on file in the athletic office in order to try out.
Blank copies of the physical paperwork may be picked up outside Mrs. Umeda's office (A108-2) or downloaded here. Physicals may be dropped off to the main office throughout the summer or emailed to Sam Reed. See the main office summer hours here.
New and returning students interested in participating in a fall sport will need to register through our online registration system beginning July 30.
