Kennedy Middle School celebrated its first Pink Out Day on Oct. 30. During Pink Out Day, students and staff each paid $1 to wear a pink shirt and jeans for the day. All money raised was donated to breast cancer research. Kennedy staff and students raised $113!
The event was the brainchild of our principal, Treveda Redmond. Ms. Redmond is a six-year cancer survivor. Additionally, my grandmother Eileen Elliott was a two-time breast cancer survivor. She was a long time RPS 205 employee serving as a secretary in elementary schools and then in the superintendent's office.
Not only were students excited to be out of uniform for the day, but they were thrilled to help raise awareness for this disease that affects their community.
The state released formal guidelines on Tuesday about what in-person learning will look like this fall.
This message might not surprise you, but we wanted to share our disappointment with our students and graduates.
RPS 205 teachers and students will comply with all Illinois Secretary of State and Illinois Department of Public Health guidelines.
Please enroll for the 2020-21 school year before July 10.
Parents/guardians and students are required to bring a student ID to receive a device.
