2018 K.I.D.S. November Program – Speed and Agility Training – 6th-8th grade and Introduction to Wrestling – 6th grade. Registration forms are in the office - the cost is $5.00 and you pay at the first session. The K.I.D.S sports opportunities are a great way to get kids active and be involved in the Kentwood Community.
Parents if you have any traditional board games or card games (UNO) you'd like to part with please consider donating to 6th grade. We offer Fun Friday- 30 minutes of free time to students who have all their work completed each week and as the weather is getting colder and rainy we are not able to go outside as much. The kids have been loving the games.
The end of marking period 1 is fast approaching. The last day of MP1 is Friday, October 19 and the students will transition form Teen Leadership to Art. There will be two incentives for grades including TEAM A Incentive for all students with 70% or better in all classes and Operation Target Incentive for those with all A's. Parents will receive report cards at conferences on October 24 & 25. A letter with your scheduled conference time will be sent home Monday, October 15.
Please see the attached flyer for a fun family friendly Stem event held October 20, 2018.
Yesterday, Mrs. Marshall's enrichment group hosted three players from the Davenport Women's Volleyball team to tie into their study of perseverance. The players shared a couple of their team values (Grit, Perseverance, Empowerment) and how they try to implement them on and off the court. The students also participated in a question and answer session that focused on examples and personal stories of perseverance shared by each of the players. They will be back to share with other enrichment classes later this week.
If you'd like to donate please send the candy donation to school with your student and have them drop it off in the morning to Mrs. Heintskill's room or parents may drop it off in the main office with a note to Mrs. Heintskill.
Thank you parents for helping to make this day fun for the kids. Please note: fun sized and peanut free candy only. Wonka candy works best!
