Wildcat Prowl – Friday, May 3

This year’s Wildcat Prowl will be a fun, school-wide walking event sponsored by the Kenton Elementary School PTO! This event will be held on Friday, May 3rd at Robinson Field (Kenton Middle School). We encourage your student(s) to dress up to support their grade’s spirit theme to help win this year’s Roar Award! This event will be held on the Kenton City Schools campus, so all students can attend without additional permission.

The Kenton Elementary School PTO will sponsor a FREE sack lunch to every student on the day of the Wildcat Prowl.

Many thanks for your support of the students and staff at Kenton Elementary School! We are looking forward to another wonderful day of walking at this year’s Wildcat Prowl. Please be sure to have your student wear comfortable shoes!

If you do not want your child to participate in the Wildcat Prowl and/or do not want them to get a FREE sack lunch from the cafeteria, please send in written notification to your student’s classroom teacher.

If you have any additional questions about the Wildcat Prowl, please contact the Kenton Elementary School PTO at

5th Grade & Kindergarten Students Synergize

An inspiring story from 5th grade teacher Mrs. Kimmel: “When my homeroom of students reach their class behavior goal, they earn a reward that they voted for as a class. During the third quarter, my students had voted to spend time with younger students as their reward. I love that our district recognizes the importance of synergy and how impactful it can be to partner older and younger students to provide leadership opportunities.

Last week, my homeroom visited Mrs. Chapman’s kindergarten class. Our students practiced sight words and read books together. This week, we visited Mrs. Wissman’s kindergarten class during their play centers and we learned more about Habit #4: Think Win-Win through an activity together. My fifth grade students absolutely loved visiting these classes! Thank you to Mrs. Chapman and Mrs. Wissman for allowing my fifth graders to take these leadership opportunities!”

Thank you Mrs. Kimmel, Mrs. Chapman and Mrs. Wissman for helping to make connections with our students.

Student Lighthouse Teams

Our KES student lighthouse teams met last week to brainstorm ideas for our 4th quarter celebration and leadership club day. These students did a fabulous job beginning with the end in mind, seeking to understand and synergizing. They truly showed leadership and collaboration! Thank you to our LIM co-coordinators, Mrs. Mikesell and Mrs. Ketcham for being proactive by planning the day.
