Keizer Police Department Chief John Teague spoke to Kennedy Elementary School leadership students on May 5, 2016.
His message was simple, yet meaningful. “To lead you first have to love people.”
The Kennedy Elementary students are member of the school's KAL Club – the Kennedy Academy for Leadership.
Leadership students meet weekly, each with a leadership mentor from the community.
Community leaders include students from McNary High School, Kennedy Elementary staff members, community members from Church on the Hill, and Roland Herrera, Keizer City Councilor, pictured next to Chief Teague.
The group of fourth and fifth grade Kennedy students learn and reflect on their weekly leadership goals. They also participate in service learning projects, coordinating school activities and hearing from guest speakers like Councilor Roland Herrera and Chief John Teague.

Over 300 students and their families participated in Kennedy Elementary School's two-day Families Love Reading Event last Monday and Tuesday.
Families were provided with free books at their child’s level, free information and guidance on how to support their students at home, and the opportunity to decorate free book boxes for storing their new books.
The event also served as a kick off for the Kennedy Winter Reading Incentive Program where students can earn prizes for minutes read during the month of December.
Nice job Kennedy students and parents!

In Salem-Keizer’s inaugural Parade of Honor events, graduates from McKay and McNary high schools visited the elementary schools they attended as children. The goals of the event are to inspire young students to become graduates, and to give graduates a chance to thank their former teachers.
Wearing their graduation caps and gowns, graduates paraded through the halls of their old schools, sharing smiles, waves and lots of high-fives with current elementary students.
Scott Elementary School welcomed returning McKay graduates with signs, cake, and a special framed photo collage for each graduate. Teachers hugged their all-grown-up former students, and graduates commented that the school seemed much larger when they were children.
Kennedy Elementary School students cheered graduates from McNary with shouts of, “Go McNary!” while waving signs and handing out blue and white paper-chain necklaces. After parading through the school, graduates looked at photo books from years past and chatted with teachers and their former principal.
Photos of the inaugural Parade of Honor events can be found on Flickr:
Kennedy Elementary students share their thought on the hard work that their teachers do.
Kennedy Elementary School Celebrated 50 years last week with a Walk Down Memory Lane event.
Both former and current students, staff, and parents joined in the celebration.
The celebration included a hallway picture walk to honor the last 50 years, a photo slide show, yearbooks over the years, refreshments and even balloon animals for the kids!
The principal from 1985 and even some of the staff from 40+ years ago were in attendance.
Many current Kennedy parents (former Kennedy students) enjoyed showing their children pictures and sharing memories from past years at Kennedy!
