September 12 Principal's Weekly Blog

Good Morning,  Brent Kennedy Community!

Thank you to all of our staff and families for getting through the bottleneck of the first week of school startup!  So sweet to see the Kindergarten children and their families register and pop into the building.   We are planning to do more multi-age actitivities this year than we have been able to over the past couple years as we focus on this school & community-wide goal that we developed in May.

Students will develop further awareness of - and take responsibility for - our social, physical, and natural environments by working independently and collaboratively for the benefit of others, our community, and the environment.  We will be working on literacy, numeracy and a school based goal over the next several years.

School fees are now due!  The cost is $30 per child.  You can send the money with your child, pay online, or pay in person at the school.
