June Happenings

School is out, but learning is still occurring! I am so thankful for our parents, partners in education, and community friends who are helping to provide resources so that our students can be given opportunities to grow and learn. Our goal is to combat the “summer learning slide” by making sure students continue to build on concepts that they learned during the past school year and for them to be in a position to begin the new school year feeling confident and ready for their new curriculum.

Every parent who contacts Kennrod about available resources recognize that, together, we can help their student reach, meet, or even exceed academic goals. For this, we get excited about joining parents in their efforts and working as team to monitor student progress! Our collaboration with parents this month includes new student enrollment at our Kumon Cascade location, participation in the Kennrod & Kumon Marietta-Kennesaw event held at Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt in Kennesaw, and most recently our partnership with Marietta Middle School. Parents, I appreciate you for all that you do for our students. It is such a great feeling knowing that we are working together to help your child reach his/her full potential.

I cannot thank our partners in education (Kumon Cascade, Kumon Marietta-Kennesaw, and Marietta Middle School) enough for all the support that you have given Kennrod this month, particularly. Your interest in our vision and our commitment to serve those in need has not gone unnoticed. Thank you!

I want to especially thank Walmart for repeatedly providing grant funding to allow us to provide tutoring services to our students. As a relatively new organization, your support of our work has meant more than I can adequately put in words. Thank you for believing in us and our students!

Finally, thank you Menchie’s for taking time out of your day to welcome Kennrod into your store (see photo) and for introducing entrepreneurship to Landon and his mom. Landon enjoyed the behind the scenes tour, making his own frozen yogurt, and coloring a picture for the store wall. When I asked him what he wants to be when he grows u, he replied, “I want to own an ice cream shop.” Go for it, Landon! Summer learning is off to a great start!
