  1. iWalk!

    iWalk to School/Work Week  Many students, staff and community volunteers joined in the International Walk to School Week last week as our students walked together from AESS to help promote an active, healthy lifestyle.

  2. Happy Sto:lo New Year!

    Happy Sto:lo New Year  We invited many parents and elders into our school to watch a performance of Little Bear’s Vision Quest put on by the grade 4 students.  Students from ACE also came to support our kids in a friendly game of Slahal.

  3. FFFFFantastic!  The letter F was all the talk in our K classes this week.  Be sure to ask your kids to point out any letter F’s they see around town.
  4. Gone Fishin’ Ms. Exley and Mrs. Cardinal’s classes traveled to Hicks Lake to take part in a local program that teaches kids how to fish.
  5. Inuit Art  Mr. Mills’ class has been working on using traditional shapes to complete artwork inspired by the Inuit of Canada.
  6. Kent Athletics  Our intermediate co-ed soccer team travelled to Promontory Elementary this week and our cross-country team travelled to Chilliwack to run at Twin Rinks.  Once again, we are proud of their effort and attitude!
  7. Student walks on eggs as part of the Forces discussion in CHOICES (Science)

    CHOICES is On!  Art, musical theatre, science, technology, building, puppetry, beadwork, legends, fitness, readers’ theatre, knitting and chess have taken over our school on Wednesday afternoon.  This is a fairly unique program and we are proud to offer it again this year. Thanks to all the staff for all their hard work in preparing for this round of CHOICES.

  8. Identity Day – November 20  Students and staff will all be doing a project on themselves – their strengths, interests, family, culture, etc – for November 20th as part of our 2nd Identity Day. More info will be coming out soon but if you would like info from our last one, go to: http://bit.ly/NrekwQ
  9. Safe and Caring School  There has been much talk recently around bullying with kids.  I was proud to hear a comment made by a parent at the PAC meeting when she stated. “I think Kent is doing the right thing by helping students celebrate and be proud of who they are.”  We will continue to work hard with our students on this to ensure that our school models safety, care, and empathy with our kids.
  10. Drop Everything and Read!  Our school will be participating in yet another activity to promote reading with our kids.  On Monday afternoon, students will be invited to take part in a “read-in” in our library with comfy cushions and a good book.  This is part of the provincial D.E.A.R. event.
