Kennedy Elementary School hosts student and teacher meet and greet
OMAHA, Neb. (FOX42KPTM) —
Children at Kennedy Elementary School are now starting school earlier than other Omaha students.
This means those children get a chance to meet their teachers before school starts.
Wednesday is the day students at Kennedy go back to school.
The school's principal Tony Gunter said, "We want our kids and our families to feel special, so when we come in, we roll out the red carpet and make that they have a chance to see our school and meet our staff and let them know that we value them as people.”
Just last school year, Kennedy Elementary received the gold award for excellence and improvement.
It raised student achievement by 5 percent in two different categories.
