School History

Samuel Kennedy School was the first school built by the Elk Grove Unified School District after the elementary schools of the area and Elk Grove High School unified into one district in 1959. Samuel Kennedy was a Florin community leader and a fruit grower who served on the Florin Board of Trustees for 25 years. The Kennedy family, related to the Jacksons, had come across the plains to California, as had many of the area’s pioneer families.
