Principal Welcome

Jason Grovum with his wife and 4 children

Welcome to our Kennedy website.  We are a very close family that will do everything we can to ensure our students have an opportunity to reach their goals and dreams.  We have a culture that is built on a "We will!" attitude.  We make no excuses, we always do our best.  Our motto is let's be Kennedy BEST. 

B - Be Safe and Healthy
E - Engage in Learning
S - Show Respect to Others
T - Treat All Property Respectfully

Kennedy embraces the idea that all of our students are all of our responsibility all of the time.

I am so lucky to be the principal at Kennedy Elementary School.  We are a very diverse community, and we will do everything we can to meet the needs of all learners.  We are very proud of our diversity and it makes us who we are.  We all learn from each other everyday.  I became the Kennedy Principal in 2012.  I have spent time in Worthington, where I was an assistant principal for two years.  I also taught 1st grade, 2nd grade, and 4th grade in Jordan.  I grew up in Helena, MT and went to college at Carroll College.  I moved to Minnesota in 2001 after teaching in Montana for two years.  I attended the University of Minnesota where I received a Master's degree in Education.  I then attended Saint Mary's University and received an K-12 Administrative License. 

My wife's name is Katy.  She has also taught elementary school for ten years.  We have three strong and healthy boys name Blake, Brett, and Bennett.  We also have a beautiful daughter named Livy.  Our kids love to read, ride bikes, and go on trips to the zoo.  They also love to visit their grandparents, Duane and Mary Evans, who reside in Blue Earth.

It is all about family!  I have two families. One at home and one at Kennedy. 

Thank you for visiting our website.
