Thank you to SoCalGas

We are excited to share a fun update on a recent grant Kentwood Elementary received from SoCalGas via the LAX Coastal Education Foundation. Parents, be sure to check your kiddos’ recently sent home packets for their new stylus to use with their devices. This stylus is a great tool to practice fine motor skills for our younger koalas and open up more possibilities with other apps for our older koalas. In addition, what you didn’t get to see yet was that every teacher at Kentwood also received a document camera and two books about STEM projects. 

Thanks to SoCalGas for helping us bring these fun new tools to the Kentwood community!

A chat with Principal Sugino will also be held via Zoom next Thursday August 13 at 3pm.

A Student Message from Ms. Sugino

Dear Koalas,

I miss all of you!  hope you had a nice spring break.  I walked my dog Peanut and started sewing face masks for family and friends.  What fun things did you do? 

This week I will visit classes during dance and library time.  Please be safe.

Message from our principal…

Dear Kentwood Koalas,
Your teachers, staff, and I miss you very much! Thank you for doing such a super job learning from home! I am so proud of all of you. After Spring Break I will visit you during your Zoom lessons and story time with Mrs. O’ Neill.

Here I am the middle of my lettuce patch. I also have tomatoes, onions, chard, and kale growing in my garden. Last week I planted carrots, broccoli, and okra. I hope to see little sprouts in a few weeks.

I look forward to seeing you soon!

Love, Ms. Sugino
