Reminder on Transportation Notes to Teachers

Due to the large number of students at Kenton Elementary School it is important to include the following information on notes sent to the teachers regarding transportation changes:

  • Student’s full name
  • Teacher’s name
  • Name and address of the place where the student is going to (only if it is NOT their home address)

By providing this information, it will help to eliminate confusion for staff and students at the end of the day.

Thank you for your help!

Share Fair at KES


The Gifted Program at Kenton Elementary School is hosting its 2nd Annual “Share Fair” on May 19th for grades 3 and 6 and May 20th for grades 4 and 5.

Each night the “Share Fair” will begin at 7 PM and will be held in the respective grade level’s pod at Kenton Elementary School.

The “Share Fair” is an end of the year event where students in the Gifted Program present their favorite project from the year.

We encourage families, teachers, and friends to attend as we celebrate each student’s hard work and success.

The Turtle Lady Comes to KES!

Earlier this month, Kenton Elementary School students in grades preschool through second grade had the opportunity to hear the Turtle Lady give her presentation on turtles and other reptiles.

During the hour long presentation with each class, the Turtle Lady shared over 30+ creatures with the students – 25 turtles (small, medium, and large), 4 bearded dragons, 2 snakes, and several “surprise” amphibians.

The Turtle Lady shared many different facts about the turtles and other reptiles that she brought, such as:  where they live, what they like to eat, how long they live, etc….

A major highlight for students was at the end of the presentation, where the students were able to rotate to different stations and they were able to see the turtles and other reptiles up close, as well as, touch them.

Thank you Turtle Lady for coming to our school and sharing your special message!  The students truly enjoyed your visit!
