It goes without saying that Kensington Elementary School is the heart of Kensington. A small
town with just over 2,100 residents, Kensington is a wonderful place to live and learn! The
students and staff at KES are fortunate to have such a strong and generous community
supporting our school and celebrating our successes. Our 4th grade Adopt-A-Visibility
Project this spring was a great example of our close connection with the people and town of
Kensington. With help from local tradesmen and the Farm at Eastman’s Corner, our front
entrance has been redesigned and beautified for all the citizens of Kensington to enjoy.
When school opens this year, KES will have just over 100 students coming through its doors.
We are excited to be walking on shiny new tile floors which represent a new beginning to our
school year! Given our small class size, instruction at KES will continue to be individualized and tailored to meet students’ needs both as young children and as curious young learners. Our dedicated staff has been working diligently developing “I can” statements in both reading and writing so that our students can continue to progress along a continuum of literacy skills. Everyday Mathematics will be launched in all K5 classrooms this fall and Open Circle will continue to support and grow our students’ social and emotional development. Learning is about inspiring students - the teachers at KES do that everyday!
