FROM THE PRINCIPAL
As we wind down the calendar year, I hope you take time to reflect on the moments that brought you joy these past 12 months. This is a great time to look back at the memories already created and preparing to make new ones in 2017.
As a school and district we have advanced ourselves in ways that support our students and created greater opportunities for them to develop into outstanding citizens that will positively contribute to our society. This is a process and we see examples of growth towards this objective frequently. I want to extend my deep gratitude to all of those that contribute to helping the wonderful children at Kent Primary School thrive. Every person that interacts with them has a chance to make an impression on them. I ask for you to be mindful of this and make each moment with every child count.
We have already had our first delayed opening. For school closings and early dismissals due to inclement weather, the Carmel Central School District will notify local radio stations to alert our community of these changes. In addition, our District website, Carmel app and our phone messaging system will also provide the same information. In the event we must dismiss early or cancel school prior to the students arriving, please have an emergency plan in effect.
On behalf of the students and staff here at Kent Primary School, I would like to wish everyone a safe and joyous holiday season and a happy new year!

Capri Sun Juice Wrappers earn money for KPS. The students at KPS are pitching in by recycling aluminum juice pouches. Kent Primary found an organization called TERRACYCLE that will re-purpose these juice pouches into neat things like tote bags, purses and even pencil cases. The best part is that KPS receives 2 cents for each juice pouch. Mrs. Peck's 1st grade students are in charge of collecting, rinsing and packaging the juice pouches. We can use your help by collecting the pouches at home and sending them into us in September and throughout the year. Here's how: 1. Please cut the top off just under the top seam (above the spot for the straw). 2. Rinse them out with just warm water. 3. Allow them to dry out before putting them in a Ziploc for us.
