    A delicious Festive Lunch

    Festive Lunch Every child and staff member, along with community members and volunteers, sat down to eat a turkey dinner together with some wonderful student sung melodies in the background.  This has been a tradition for over 20 years at Kent.  Thank you so much to the PAC for organizing and helping this.  Also, thank you to all that donated to our food/cereal drive this week. Hundreds of items were picked up by community services.

  2. Primary choir performs

    Parent Morning in Division 5  Ms. Exley invited parents and families to come in and watch the students perform poems and songs they have learned so far this year.  Following the lovely performance, families sat with the children, had some goodies, and looked through their child’s portfolio of learning.

  4. Greeted with Christmas Carols in the grade 6 Christmas House.

    Grade 6 Christmas House  Our grade 6’s once again treated our students and staff to a wonderful Christmas house complete with carolers, hot chocolate, crafts, baking, games, a read aloud, and SANTA!

  5. Kindy Gingerbread Houses

    Gingerbread Houses Students in Ms. Garrioch’s class worked with their grade 6 buddies to make their own gingerbread houses.  Students were just given the supplies and then asked to be creative!

  6. Grade 4 novel.

    Grade 4 novel.

    Fatty Legs Some of our grade 4 students are reading a powerful novel about the impact of residential schools on an Inuit girl and her family.  Some powerful questions & discussions are coming from this.  Thank you to Mr. Mills and Kasey Chapman for their leadership.

  7. Math That Builds on Confidence  Our intermediate classes are all using a resource called Jump Math again this year.  The philosophy behind this program is that students do better when they have confidence.  The teachers use Jump Math to back up to where the students are and then move forward.
  8. Our HILL!!!

    Our HILL!!!

    The Hill Opens!  All the anticipation was well worth it as we were able to open our hill for a day when it was covered in snow.  I even know of a few parents who took to the Kent Hill in the evening for a little slip sliding.  Thank to you the PAC for all their work… and for the sleds!

  9. Parent Forum on Youth and Technology  We invite you to the Kent Library on Monday, January 14 from 6:30-8:30 for an evening to discuss “Navigating the World of Technology With our Youth”. Mr, Wejr will give a short presentation followed by some guiding questions and open discussions.
  10. Kent Musical Hits the Big(ger) Stage  With the great success of the musical at school a few weeks ago, the kids will be taking a bigger stage at the Harrison Memorial Hall on Friday, January 25 at 7pm.
Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!

      Even if I couldn’t be there, the virtual tour was almost as good (and no calories in the Festive Lunch that way!)

      Enjoy a restorative break!
