Dear Kenwood Community,
Kenwood Elementary School is a school with a talented and highly committed, professional staff
devoted to providing the best environment in which children may grow and develop. We are
dedicated to high quality, rigorous and engaging academics. We value each child as an
individual and encourage them to work hard and achieve their personal best. Inclusiveness,
collaboration, compassion, and growth mindset are the underpinnings of a Kenwood education.
In this context our students learn. We foster a passion for learning on a daily basis.
We have adopted Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) building-wide. Its
success is based on three simple behavioral expectations: “Be respectful. Be Responsible. Be
Safe.” Within this system we cultivate a sense of personal responsibility.
We believe in a three way partnership with students, parents and the school. Open and
consistent communication is vital to the success of our children. Consider joining our active
Parent Teacher Organization or volunteering the building. Your children love to see you
participating! Please feel free to contact me at any time with concerns or celebrations. I happily
tour new families to help make transitions to our building easier and I love the chance to brag
about our school! Follow me on Twitter https://twitter.com/KDaneyBGCS and my Kenwood blog
With warm regards,
Kathleen S. Daney, Principal
