"Capturing Education in Action" September 2013

Grade 3 Ice Cream Social
In early September, Grade 3 students and families made their own ice cream sundaes in the cafeteria.  It was a nice way to welcome all the new grade three families to the Freeman-Kenndey School.  The event is sponsored by the Student Council and overseen by Mrs. Patrick.  
          Mrs. Moore and Mrs. Leidner helped by placing chocolate sauce and whipped cream 
          on the ice cream  sundaes. 
Mrs. Patrick and Ms. Lassey scooped ice cream!  
The entire grade 3 team made the Ice Cream Social a welcoming experience for all! 

Freeman-Kennedy History Wall Unveiling! 

Katie McMahon and Eleanor Spellman made history come alive at Freeman-Kennedy School on Friday, September 13, 2013.  We now have the opportunity to teach our students about all the important people who made an impact on education within the Norfolk Public Schools.   These young ladies completed 50 hours of community service to achieve their Silver Award in Girl Scouts. 

Senator Richard Ross came to acknowledge all the hard work these young ladies accomplished!  They were each given a official citation from the Massachusetts State Senate.

Adam Kennedy's parents and Priscilla Chick, daughter of Alvin J. Freeman, came to celebrate the History Wall unveiling. They are very proud to have the school named after their family members.

The Spellman Family supported Eleanor in her journey to completing the Silver Award.

The McMahon Family also supported Katie in her journey to completing the Silver Award.
Awesome job on the History Wall!
