From the Principal

 

 

Dear BK Family,

On August 19, 2020, our BK family embraced a school year that we knew would be different from anything we had ever experienced.  In my 32 years of being a part of this community, I have never been prouder of the shared cooperation, patience, and partnership of our students, parents, and staff.  We knew there would be challenges, but we are exceedingly thankful that Bishop Kenny was open for in-person instruction this year, something that would not have been possible without each of you.  Behind our masks, socially distanced and 6’ apart, we came together.

In addition to facing the COVID-19 pandemic, our community also came together to reflect on our role in ensuring every BK student experiences Christ in our school. The formation of our BKHS Task Force on Diversity and the Diversity Student Union was a reaffirmation of that responsibility and of the core values of what we are – a Catholic institution that welcomes students of all colors, races, and nationalities.

In continuing our commitment to excellence, our campus will be undergoing some exciting changes this summer as we continue our renovation of the 100 Building.  We are excited for students to learn in updated, modern classrooms this fall. 

Crusader athletics finished another successful year with numerous post-season accolades. Most notably, our girls indoor volleyball team brought home the Class 4A State Title.  We also had 18 senior athletes commit to continuing the strong tradition of Crusader athletics in college.  We are excited to follow their successes.  We look forward to having our current and future student athletes on campus this summer participating in our various sports camp programs and team workouts.  Go, Crusaders!

Please take a moment to enjoy a video commemorating this year and the Class of 2021.  As I said in the video, we are proud of our Crusaders; we are proud to be Bishop Kenny.  To the Class of 2021, we are especially proud of you.  Go make a difference and write your moments in history.

We Are Bishop Kenny,
