Kent Library Update

Book Passage Event

Thanks to all who supported our successful Kent and Book Passage event last week.

On Monday, Kent will welcome Alan Gratz, author of our All School Read, Refugee. This is a very exciting moment that we have been preparing for all year, and we can't wait for an action packed day of learning with him.

If your child has a copy of any of Alan's books, they can bring them Monday to be signed during recess in the library. We will have a special schedule that day to accommodate an assembly for fifth and sixth graders and another for seventh and eighth.

All students who entered our essay contest are invited to have lunch with the author, Ms. Schott, Mr. Althouse, and Ms. Jelen, and all "super fans" who have read two or more of Alan's books are invited to special Q&A session in the library. It should be a great day!

Thank you for the KSPTA for providing a generous grant to help make this day possible!!!

Pizza Lunch and Book Club

Grab a copy of Ghost Boys by Jewel Parker Rhodes from the library or your language arts teacher, then come to our event on May 21, 2019 at lunch in Room 24.

8th Grade Announcements

Last Day of School - June 14th Rumor

There is a rumor going around (or is it wishful thinking?!) that eighth graders do not have to attend school on the last day, June 14th. This is not true. All Falcons are expected to be at school that day with a noon dismissal. Eighth graders have a final ceremony walk through that day as well as other special events. Any questions? Please email Melissa Stephens at
