KES Wildcat Prowl


Kenton Elementary School PTO will be hosting its annual spring fundraiser, the “Wildcat Prowl,” on Thursday, May 18th at Robinson Field (make-up rain date:  May 19th).  This is a FUN, school-wide activity where each student walks or jogs on the track at Robinson Field, to show support for our school and raise awareness of a healthy lifestyle.  Everyone is welcome to attend this event – parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, sisters, brothers, and friends.  Please come and participate with your student.

Wildcat Prowl Schedule on Thursday, May 18th:

  • Preschool and Kindergarten:  8:30 AM – 9:30 AM
  • 1st Grade and 2nd Grade:  9:45 AM – 10:45 AM
  • 3rd Grade and 4th Grade:  12:00 PM – 1:00 PM
  • 5th Grade and 6th Grade:  1:15 PM – 2:15 PM

Water and a snack will be provided to the students.

The Wildcat Prowl is also a school-wide fundraiser event where proceeds go back to the KES PTO for field trips and other student activities.  Students who participate will have an opportunity to earn a prize for their efforts.

How the Fundraiser Works:

  • The fundraiser will run from April 24th – May 12th.
  • Students are invited to solicit flat rate donations from parents, friends, family, and neighbors prior to the Wildcat Prowl on May 18th.
  • For every $10-dollars in donations raised by a student, his or her name will be placed on a raffle ticket and entered into a drawing for a prize.  Drawing for prizes will be held on May 19th during school.
  • All donations must be returned in the envelope provided with this letter, to the school by Friday, May 12th.

Wildcats Lead the Way


On May 17, 2017, Kenton Elementary School will be holding its annual leadership meet and greet event, “Wildcats Lead the Way.”

The students will be able to visit their upcoming classrooms, new classmates, fill out an interest survey, and become acquainted with their new teacher while enjoying a few fun activities.

The sixth grade Leadership Ambassadors will be escorting students to their new pods to give students the opportunity to become acclimated with their new environment.  This is an opportunity for our sixth grade leaders to model the 7 Habits to the young upcoming leaders.

We are so excited about this leadership event and hope everyone will be too!
