Birds of a Feather Flock Together

This is Kennedy.

We are thrilled to announce a new, school-wide program called "Birds of a Feather". This program is designed to strengthen the bond between our Upper and Lower Campuses. Each Upper Campus House has been paired with a Lower Campus classroom. At Kennedy, we have inter-generational (grades 9-12) Houses instead of standard Homerooms. Each of our 11 Houses is named for a Saint, the Houses compete for points all year long based on academics, school spirit, fundraising and volunteer work and the competition caps off with our annual Olympic Day. The partnership will help to increase interest, excitement, school spirit, and confidence in our Little Eagles so as to better understand and embrace our Upper Campus. It will give our Big Eagles the chance to mentor their younger counterparts, lead service projects, and just have some fun!


These new groups sat together at our Opening School Mass and cheered together at the all-school Homecoming Pep Rally this Fall. Plans also include visits to the Lower Campus, tutoring opportunities, service projects, videos and messages, and invitations to games and special events throughout the year.


 We are excited to see how our students of all ages come together, just like a family, we flock together.
