Reminder of Transportation Changes and Notes to Teachers


Please call in all transportation changes to the school office by 12:00 PM.
School Office Telephone:  419-673-7248

Due to a 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 eliminate confusion for staff and students at the end of the day!

Thank your for your help!

Parent/Teacher Conferences – November 2nd and November 3rd


Parent/Teacher Conferences will be held on Wednesday, November 2nd from 4:00 PM – 8:00 PM and Thursday, November 3rd from 8:00 AM – 8:00 PM.

This is an opportunity for parents, students, and teachers to share successes, accomplishments, and/or concerns.

We believe students can accomplish high academic goals when parents play an active role in the education of their children.

If you have not scheduled a conference yet, but would to attend, please contact the school office 419-673-7248.

Here are some ideas to make the conference a valuable experience:

  1. Write down any questions or concerns you may already have.
  2. During the conference, take notes.
  3. Please try to be on time to your conference so you have plenty of time for discussion.
  4. Please call the school office if you are unable to make your scheduled time.
  5. If at all possible, leave younger siblings at home so you may focus solely on your school age child’s successes and/or concerns.  It is their day to shine!
