Love For Lilee As most of you have followed and supported this beautiful girl’s life journey, you also know how her story has impacted our school community. We were truly honoured and inspired to have LJ’s father, Andrew Putt, join us for our Terry Fox Run. In Andrew’s words, “I ran because LJ will never get to”. To continue to support the family, please go to www.loveforlilee.com and “like” their Love For Lilee Facebook Page.
- Buddies Teaming up our older students with our younger students has become part of what we do at Kent School. Through play, art, math, and fitness, older students learn leadership skills while the young students benefit through mentorship and coaching.

Self-Regulation A few of our staff members are on our self-regulation team as part of a district pilot project to see the benefits of a number of tools and strategies on student learning. Strategies and tools such as wiggle seats and chairs along with heavy lifting, rolling, and fidget tools help our students to be more calm, alert and ready to learn.
