Back to School Picnic

The last Saturday in August, Kentwood families enjoyed getting together at the annual Back to School picnic. Our koalas enjoyed a dunk tank, water slide, and games, and many of them even built their own koalas to take home. Add in some yummy food and shaved ice and the afternoon was complete. Great food, fun activities, and new and old friends – it was an awesome way to spend our Saturday!

Westchester 4th of July Parade

Thanks to everyone who participated in the 2018 LAX Coastal Fourth of July Parade on Loyola Blvd. Several teachers, Mr. Khan, and even Kenny the Koala joined the many families who paraded. More than 70 people represented Kentwood!

Check out a few pictures from the festivities. This year’s theme was “Cities Across America” and Kentwood represented the great city of Detroit. Edmunds provided the 2019 Jeep and Mattel donated 200 Hot Wheels that were distributed to children along the parade route. What a stellar afternoon!
