Kennedy School's Morning Announcements Reach All Students
E-mail from Caroline Campbell to Superintendent Karen Schulte

"I just wanted to send out an exuberant “Kudos” to our Kennedy Student Council for their Monday morning announcements!  They presented the school announcements in Spanish - then translated them into English, switching back and forth each paragraph.  It sounded wonderful! How fun for our Spanish speaking students to hear the morning announcements in Spanish!  Way to go Kennedy Student Council!"
