From the Principal

October 2015

While it feels like school just started, we are already on our second month of school. So far, we have had our curriculum nights, back to school night for our families with children that make up our English as a New Language (ENL) population, and picture day. This is on top of the great teaching and learning that is ongoing. 

Upcoming October events include a fire safety program 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 20th Board of Education meeting.

Please remember that you can stay current on what is going 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 If you are not already getting our flyers through PeachJar, go to our webpage to sign up.

One of the best things about IXL is that students in grades K - 4 can access it from school and from home!  Your child should know their user name and password. Practice math skills using IXL Math at home.


New Procedure to Report Student Absences

Beginning with the 2015-2016 school year, every parent/guardian will receive an attendance call when their child is absent no matter what the reason.  Parents/guardians will no longer call to report student absences. The parent or guardian will then be asked to send a written documentation of the reason for the absence with their child when they return to school.  Students should give the note to their teacher.
