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.

5th Grade Music Program Notice

Music Notes

The Kenton Elementary School fifth grade students will present their musical revue, The Beatles on Thursday, March 9th at 7 PM in the Kenton Elementary School gymnasium.  The Dress Rehearsal will be at approximately 9:10 AM that same day.  Grandparents and parents who work nights are welcome to attend the morning Dress Rehearsal.

Students should begin to arrive at Kenton Elementary School on Thursday, March 9th at 6:30 PM and go to their classrooms.  PLEASE MARK YOUR CALENDARS NOW SO THAT ALL STUDENTS IN FIFTH GRADE AT KENTON ELEMENTARY SCHOOL ARE IN ATTENDANCE.

The program is a musical revue celebrating the music of the “Fab Four,” also known as, The Beatles, including hits such as Can’t Buy Me Love, Octupus’ Garden, Yellow Submarine, and more!

COSTUMES:
Just have your students wear any combinations of bright colors, tie-dyed shirts, headbands, bell-bottom jeans, and anything else that might help us create at 1960’s/early 1970’s look.  There is no need to buy anything new, just use your creativity and imagination!

PARKING FOR THE EVENING PERFORMANCE:
If your child is in Mrs. Ruhlen, Ms. Rogers, or Ms. Jacoby’s class, please park in the back parking lot (where the buses park) and enter the school through the back door.  If your child is in Mrs. Kimmel, Mrs. Courtney, or Ms. Saunier’s class, please park in the front parking lot and enter the school through the front door.

As a reward for participating in the musical, each fifth grader that attends the night performance will receive one of the following “rewards”:  an extra recess, a gym activity, or a movie – depending upon what we can work out with other staff members.  If your fifth grader does not attend the night performance, they will receive an alternate assignment that must be completed to earn the points back from the performance.

(PLEASE NOTE:  Participation is not required for current members of the 5th grade band.  Those that have participated in the Club ROAR time on Wednesdays are invited to perform with us.)

If your child needs a ride to the evening performance, please contact the school office.  If you have any questions please contact the school office.

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!
