Buddy Breakfast
Friday, February 28th, 7:15 a.m.-8:15 a.m.
Kennedy Gym

If you are new to Kennedy or a pro to this event, the buddy breakfast is an event where we encourage every student to bring a “buddy.” The term “buddy”
means significant person in your child’s life who they would really like to bring to school to have some special time together. It can be a parent, grandparent, aunt/uncle, neighbor. Both the child and adult will come to school beginning at 7:15 to share breakfast and tour the school together. A fun event for all!

A continental breakfast will be provided by donations from PTG, teachers/staff, volunteer bakers and local businesses. This event takes place in the Kennedy gymnasium.

Volunteer opportunities are available, please look for a Sign Up Genius to be available soon!

Any questions, please email Anna at
