Today, we are offering a wonderful craft activity! Since many of our senior citizens in local nursing homes are unable to have visitors, we thought it may be a great idea to send cards so they feel the love and support from the Greenwood Community. If you can, it would be awesome if you could make one (or two, or three!) cards. Follow the directions below and deliver them to the box at Greenwood. We will take care of sending them to the Kennett Friends Home!
While students are not in school right now, we are hopeful that each child can have meaningful learning experiences while they are home. Students can be reading and practicing their math facts daily. They may also access any KCSD Online Programs through our Student Resources Page.
Additionally, the Greewnood Staff has worked to compile a list of Online Learning Opportunities for Students that your child may use to enrich his/her learning experience. Please continue to check back for daily activities! We look forward to connecting with you virtually over the next two weeks!

Miss Clendening’s fourth graders have been learning about Genetics and DNA. On Tuesday students traveled to the Southern Chester County Police Station to learn how the police use DNA. They were taught what types of DNA the police collect and how the police use it to solve crimes. Officer Raimato showed students how police collect DNA without contaminating evidence. The students also participated in a video conference call with Sarita Chauhan, a former parent and scientist, to learn more about DNA and ask an expert questions. Here is a fun fact from our learning, identical twins have identical DNA but they do not have the same fingerprints!
On Wednesday, Miss Clendening’s 5th graders spent the afternoon at Bancroft Elementary. Students enjoyed some hands on activities using Snap Circuits Green Energy sets and had lunch in the cafeteria with Miss Clendening’s students from across the district. George Wolhafe, Kennett’s Director of Facilities, gave students a tour of Bancroft’s geothermal energy. Mr. Wolhafe explained every part of how geothermal energy works and answered questions from students. The students then shared their research on types of energy ranging from solar energy to nuclear energy. It was a fun afternoon filled with learning!
