Dear Community Members, Parents, and Students:
New York State is a beautiful place to be during the fall months. The fresh fruit and vegetables are incredible, and there is nothing like the smell of a fresh apple pie baking in the oven on a chilly fall day. Western New York is known for its stunning foliage. We are so fortunate to live here – some people must take a vacation to visit and enjoy the colors of the season. This area provides us with so many natural gifts; however, the best reason for living in this area is the caring and dedicated community members.
We hosted our annual Homecoming Weekend at the end of September. The attendance at our family carnival was bigger than ever. We had countless people enjoy the Sports Booster Alumni/Community soccer game. The fun continued on Saturday with our parade and then our students athletes competed throughout the day bringing home wins. We are so thankful that the Kendall Fire Department helps us every year with the parade by providing traffic control and including the fire trucks in the parade. The Sports Boosters provided refreshments both days and they were delicious – especially the garbage plates. The Kendall Faculty Association sponsored their annual basket auction with proceeds going to the senior scholarship fund. We concluded the weekend with a student dance which was attended by over 130 students. It was heartwarming to see the entire community come together to provide our kids with a memorable event. As our street signs say, Kendall is a “Great Place to Grow”.
Last spring we provided out students with an assembly about the importance of safe driving. Again in October we provided our 9 – 12 graders with additional activities that stressed the importance of safe driving. During physical education class, students participated in a “Battle of the Belts”. It was a fast moving competition where teams of 4 competed to see who could buckle-up the fastest. The winning team represented Kendall at a county-wide competition in Albion. On October 18th we welcomed Jacy Good to the building. She was in a car accident with her parents and her parents were killed, and Jacy was hospitalized for four months. The other driver was talking on his cell phone. She shared her heart breaking story to motivate our students to make thoughtful decisions when driving. She has traveled the U.S. sharing her story and has appeared on Oprah, in People magazine and was a speaker at the 2010 Women's Conference hosted by Maria Shriver. This entire event had a significant impact on our students and staff.
Bakedgoodz Tumblr once said, “A good life is when you smile often, dream big, laugh a lot and realize how blessed you are for what you have.” This quote encapsulates my experiences in Kendall. During this time of Thanksgiving, I am reminded everyday how fortunate I am to work with the Kendall students, staff, and the entire community. The Kendall students keep me smiling and my interactions with them help me realize how blessed I am every day. I hope the season brings you smiles, laughs, and continued blessings!
