ONU Energy Day

On Tuesday, February 21st, students from Ohio Northern University Baja Team came to teach Kenton Elementary School third graders about energy.

The third grade students worked in teams of 3-4 and worked with an ONU student to explore mass, acceleration, kinetic energy, and potential energy.  They even got creative and explored making their own ramps and loops!

Below are pictures from the event:

Dear Parents and Families:

Reading for pleasure unlocks the power of information and imagination and helps children discover who they are.  Here’s what you can do to help children develop stronger reading skills and a love for reading:

  • Set the example.  Let children see you read.
  • Have a collection of books in your home.  Update this collection routinely to keep pace with changing tastes and reading skills.
  • Support our school’s Book Fair.  Allow your children to choose their own books to read.

Our Scholastic Book Fair is a reading event that brings the books kids want to read right into our school.  It’s a wonderful selection of engaging and affordable books for every reading level.  Please make plans to visit our Book Fair and be involved in shaping your child’s reading habits.

Book Fair Dates:  Friday, February 24th – Friday, March 3rd
