    Haunted House at Kent  Mrs. Gallamore’s grade 6 class turned our portable into a wonderfully “haunted” house for this week at Kent.  Students were tricked and treated to theatre, reading, poetry, and science!

  2. Pumpkin Patch  Students in Mrs. Smith, Ms. Findlay, Ms. Garrioch, and Mrs. Roste’s classes travelled to the pumpkin patch to learn more about how pumpkins are grown and used at this time of year.
  3. Maple leaf art

    Sight Word Excitement  Ms. Findlay’s readers are taking their sight words and doing some very creative activities like “sight word bracelets” and “sight word basketball” to enhance their learning.

  5. Kent Music Website  Mrs. Direzze has been putting in a ton of time to create a website to increase parent communication and share the stories of learning in her classes.  Although it is a work in progress, you can go to http://mrsdirezze.wordpress.com/ and download the songs kids are singing and see videos used to inspire the students. Check out the site to download and play the Songs of Peace that students will be singing next week at our Remembrance Day Assembly.
  6. Making a Difference  Students in Ms. Home’s class continue to focus on making a difference at the school as well as in the world.  To find out who’s making a difference starts with, check out the board outside of their class (hint: it involves a mirror J)
  7. Remembrance Day Assembly  Next Friday, November 8, we invite you to attend our Remembrance Day ceremony when we pay tribute to those who have fallen or risked their lives for our country.  Members of the Royal Canadian Legion as well as the RCMP will join us during this important event.
  8. Soccer Tourney  Mr. Mills took our soccer squad up to Sts’ailes for a chance to play some friendly competitors from our neighbour schools.  Our students played hard, played well, and demonstrated respectful game play during the event.
  9. Hallowe’en at Kent  We had many smiles in some very creative costumes this week as students dressed up to have a little fun on Hallowe’en. In addition to classroom activities, a few students from Mrs. Peters’ class organized a lunch time intermediate dance, Mrs. Gallamore’s class led us on a Pumpkin Run, and some classes traveled to the Agassiz Centre for Education (ACE) to walk through their haunted house.
  10. Food For Thought Luncheon  As a culminating activity for the past 4 weeks of efforts and learning about preparing nutritious, local, and mostly organic foods, Miel Bernstein, Susan Bohonos and our Food For Thought crew put on a semi-formal luncheon for some special guests.  Guests were treated to Greek salad, chicken with potatoes and kale, and cheesecake .  Mmmmmm!
