FROM THE PRINCIPAL
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.
Please visit our website and follow us on Twitter for updates and information you will need to help make the school year at Kent Primary School as great success.
I extend my best wishes to all of you for a happy and successful school 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.
