From the Principal

September 2015

Welcome back to those of you returning to Kent Primary School for another exciting year and welcome to those of you, who are just joining our KPS community. I am very excited to be sharing this new school year with all of you. While our school has had recent improvements that have been supporting our students’ learning, the District is continuing to provide further enhancements to increase opportunities for students and safety. These additions include resources being applied to improve security, as well supporting educational practices to benefit our children’s development. We appreciate the efforts of all those who have made these improvements possible. 

At KPS, we are also excited to welcome new teachers and staff that will be introduced at our curriculum nights. With that, we also extend a warm welcome to Janet Warden our new Assistant Superintendent for Instruction and Personnel. In just a few weeks, she has already demonstrated that she will be an asset to our District and community.

Last year, we developed a mission and vision statement that helps us articulate information about us as a school and aide us in keeping our decisions focused on our desired outcomes for students. We have taken these important statements and pulled out the three most important words that captures what we put our endless energy into accomplishing. Those words are: INSPIRE, DEVELOP and PREPARE. I encourage you to review these statements on our website that express what we are all about at Kent Primary School

Please visit our website for updates and information you will need to help make the school year at Kent Primary School a great success.  

I extend my best wishes to all of you for a happy and successful school year!

Author Deborah Diesen sent a handwritten letter to student Elizabeth Nickerson plus sent her a book! Wow! What a wonderful experience for our young writers! Thank you, Mr. Pallotta & Ms. Diesen!
