Mr. Gunter, Principal



Our goal at Kennedy Elementary  is to provide children – infants to fifth grade – with the best possible instructional and health opportunities available anywhere in the city. Moreover, it will follow a proven model that has seen extraordinary outcomes.


This year we will focus on the culture and climate of the building, solid core instruction, literacy, and early literacy skills. After we establish a solid foundation in these core areas, we will infuse additional learning opportunities that goes deeper into daily instruction.


With our longer school day, we have an opportunity to work more collaboratively with all students across all curricular areas each day. 


The Kennedy family is committed to teaching all students! We have two fundamental goals: 1) In ten years, Kennedy will perform amongst the top 15% of all public elementary schools in state of Nebraska, and 2)We will perform amongst the top 5% of all public elementary schools in the state of Nebraska serving similar demographics. This is an all hands on deck effort and together we believe our students will exceed our expectations.
