From the Principal

While it feels like school just started, we are already on our second month of school. So far, we have had our curriculum nights, received a generous donation of dictionaries for our third graders, and our PTO sponsored a two night bake sale with the proceeds of one night going towards the KPS Buddy Program.
Upcoming October events include school pictures and the Spooky Spectacular. Please be on the lookout for more information about these and other events. Kent Primary will also be hosting the October 21st Board of Education meeting.
Please remember that you can stay current on what is going on at Kent Primary and our district by checking our website, downloading the free Carmel Schools mobile app at either iTunes App Store or Google Play (android) or follow us on Twitter at www.twitter.com/Carmelschools

Have a wonderful October!

Best regards,
Tarkan T. Ceng, Principal
