Kennedy Elementary

Welcome to Kennedy

Kennedy Elementary is located at 2906 North 30th Street. The current building was built in 1910 and is named for the first educator to establish a public school system in Omaha. Kennedy Elementary was completely renovated under the provision of an extensive bond issue approved by voters. Kennedy Elementary currently serves children in pre-kindergarten through the fifth grade. Kennedy is proud to have the services of instructional leaders in STEAM, Early Learning, SEL, and Literacy as well as classes for English as a Second Language, speech therapy, and special education. Kennedy Elementary also provides students with 1:1 devices to provide students a path to becoming a 21st Century innovator. Our focus is to attain our goals:

  1.  To provide high-quality, standards based instruction through research-based best practices in all early learning classrooms. 
  2. To implement high-quality, standards based instruction through research-based best practices in all classrooms.
  3.  To develop students who will learn to self-regulate and develop social-emotional skills so that they will be engaged learners in school. 


 

Welcome to TIGERNATION!

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.

Principal,
Rios "Tony" Gunter
