Parent and Family Weekly Update 

June 3 - 7


Hello all Brent Kennedy parents, families and caregivers,

It is hard to believe we are entering into the beautiful month of June! There is so much to celebrate and look forward to.


Congratulations to the BKE grade 4/5 track team who went out to the District Track Meet at Redfish Elementary on Friday afternoon! Their teacher coach reports that they were the most respectful students at the meet. This is the biggest accomplishment of all! Congratulations to all who participated, and to their teacher for the time and effort put into lunchtime track practice, preparing students for the meet.


Also, big shout out to the BKE WILD class for hosting such a phenomenal Spring Carnival on Friday. I would like to acknowledge the teachers for putting so much time and effort into this event and to the students who have been busy preparing for this event. They were all excellent hosts.
