Morning Announcement Crews

Kenwood’s Video Morning Announcements are written, filmed and edited by Kenwood Students with support from Kenwood staff. This rotating team of 1st to 5th grade students gain hands on skills in video production and teamwork. The video morning announcements also create a platform for students to share their accomplishments with the whole school, thus increasing the visibility of their learning.

Video Morning Announcements were started during the 2014 School Year by teacher Stephanie Merkle. During the 2015 school year Miriam Larson became staff co- sponsor and a student morning announcements crew began to meet before school.

Students in 1st through 5th grade apply at the beginning of the year to be part of the Morning Announcements Crew. They are placed on a team that meets twice a week for the duration of a semester.

 Student Council

The​ ​purpose​ ​of the​ ​Kenwood​ ​Student​ ​Council​ ​is​ ​to​ ​make the​ ​school​ ​a​ ​better​ ​place​ ​by​ ​helping​ ​to make​ ​decisions​ ​for​ ​the​ ​school​ ​and​ ​by collaborating​ ​about​ ​issues​ ​or​ ​concerns brought​ ​to​ ​us​ ​by​ ​our​ ​peers. We are a group of students from Kindergarten through 5th grade, with each classroom represented. We gather bi-weekly to discuss different school issues, as well as help plan different initiatives for Kenwood. We enjoy working together and being leaders to our peers.


Kenwood Choir is open to all 4th and 5th grade students at Kenwood and is intended to be a fun and enriching experience. We approach choir rehearsals with three goals in mind:

1). To provide students with the joy of making music in a vocal ensemble

2). To learn and practice the skills needed to sing and perform in a vocal ensemble

3). To challenge students to reach their musical potential through focused rehersal
