Dear KES Families,
With all that is in the news lately, I just wanted to reassure you that we are actively staying on top of the snow removal here at Kensington Elementary School. Our custodial crew has been working non-stop for several weeks keeping our walkways and emergency exits cleared. Last week, a crew was hired to remove the snow from the flat roofs of the building and other high priority areas. Today, another roofing crew arrived to clear the rest of the drifts and ice dams on the remaining roofs. Some of the classrooms were relocated this morning while the workers were on the roof, but students and teachers were able to return to their rooms by snack time.
Please know that I take the safety of the children and staff very seriously and I am making decisions about our facility with safety as my priority. Feel free to call me if you have any questions or if you’d like to help shovel!
Thank you for your continued support and concern for KES!
Becky Ruel, Ed.S.
READ ACROSS AMERICA!!
We had a wonderful celebration of Read Across America here at KES. Thanks to all the teachers and parents who participated and made this a memorable week for our students. Our Family Literature Night was a great time to gather and celebrate reading (as well as find some new, used books) and listen to Fifth Grade Teacher Rebekah Prince read her own recently published book, "The Worry Tree is Waiting for You."
ENRICHMENT AT KES:
Please note: New security measures are in place at Kensington Elementary School. You will need to be buzzed in at the outer Main door and the secondary door.
