PAX Event

Attention Parents!

The PAX Good Behavior Game is a tool that teachers at Kenton Elementary School are using in their classrooms to help students with behavior.  The best part is that it is also easy for parents to use at home!  Parents that have used PAX at Home have testified to positive results with their children.  PAX at Home has 7 different lessons that mimic the PAX Good Behavior Game that is used in schools.

Are you ready to learn about a fun, positive way to interact with your children while teaching them good behaviors that will last a lifetime?  You are invited to join us and learn all about PAX at Home!  We will be at your child’s school on November 2, 2017 from 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM.  Please stop by anytime during that time.  We will have FREE games that you will be able to take home to play with your children.  Those who stop by will be eligible for a $25 gift card drawing.  Hope to see you then!

Programming and materials brought to you by the Partnership for Violence Free Families and the Mental Health and Recovery Services Board of Allen, Auglaize, and Hardin Counties.

Fall Scholastic Book Fair

Wild West Book Fair

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.  Last school year, we sold 4,632 books resulting in 833,760 reading minutes!  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 up with changing tastes and reading skills.
  • Support our school’s Book Fair.  Allow your children to choose their own books to read.

Please make plans to visit our Book Fair and be involved in shaping your child’s reading habits!
