- Welcome Back We hope you enjoyed some family time over spring break. Was so great to see the kids return with smiles on their faces and some beautiful weather.
- Spring Into Reading Mrs. Dumas, Ms. Exley, and Mrs. Cardinal have been meeting after school to organize a theme for the month of April to encourage a love for reading. This year, we will have VIP readers, an author visit, a book swap, and many other book promotions to help kids “Spring Into Reading”!
- Kent Musical The intermediate students have been working hard with Mrs. Di Rezze and Mr. Mills writing, choreographing and practicing their lines for the upcoming Kent Musical. Be sure to come check it out at the Harrison Memorial Hall on April 6 at 7:00pm and April 7 at 2:00pm.
- Basketball Both our girls and boys teams made us proud once again this week as they travelled to Chilliwack to play another league game. The boys defeated Little Mountain while the girls defeated Strathcona. All these lunch and after school practices are really paying off for these dedicated players.
Learning About Epilepsy Mrs. Peters’ class invited parent Nola Crocker from the BC Centre for Epilepsy and Seizure Education (www.epilipsy.cc) to come and speak to her class around awareness of epilepsy and seizures. The students asked some great questions and were encouraged to promote awareness each day as well as through Purple Day next March.

Bunny Run Our school walked and ran just under 3km in the beautiful sun today. Congratulations to the students for their efforts. It was especially an exciting run for Myles and Simon who both broke the school record – 10:30 for 2.8km!!!

We have added yet another way to stay informed of the current and important events happening at Kent School and throughout the Fraser-Cascade School District.
The default setting is set to notify you on any urgent/important messages. Messages from our Facebook/Twiiter account will be send to your app but no notifications will occur.
The app is just one more way to meet parents where they are.
If you have ANY questions about the app, please contact Chris Wejr at the school.
Please note that this is not a 2-way communication tool but an important tool to stay informed. For a variety of ways to contact the school please check out our Contact page.
- Heritage Fair – Mr. Mills and Mrs. Gallamore’s classes shared their learning of Canadian history in their fantastic Heritage Fair projects. 10 students will be moving on to the Regional Fair at Tradex in Abbotsford. Congratulations to the students for all their efforts. Also, a special thank you to Mrs. Dumas for all her support on these projects.
- Tulip Trip Mrs. Peters’ class travelled to Onos Greenhouses to see millions of bulbs and tulips. This local field trip aligns so well with the curricular outcomes for social studies and science.
- Supporting the SPCA Mrs. Powell, Miss Martinson and the grade 5 group from Division 2 have been raising money for the SPCA. Today they travelled to the Chilliwack SPCA to learn more about the facilities and the support this wonderful society gives our local animals.
- Cyber Safety The grade 6’s travelled to Rosedale School to attend a session with Saanich Police Staff Sergeant Darren Laur on staying protected online. The key take away was that although you have privacy settings, anything you post online is public, permanent and searchable.
- Hoops! Our intermediate basketball teams have started their league play. Mr. Grieshaber-Otto (boys) and Mrs. Gallamore (girls) have the teams playing squads from Chilliwack as well as Agassiz Christian.
