Kent Library Update
Attention 5th and 6th graders!
On June 6, 2019, we will have an author visit with Kelly Yang who wrote the wonderful novel, Front Desk. If you would like to read it, you may borrow a copy from your language arts teacher or the library. If you would like to have lunch with the author when she is here, enter our letter contest for a chance to win!
- See Ms. Jelen or your language arts teacher for more information or click here for the prompts.
Battle of the Books
Our Battle of the Books competition will be held during Kent Read Week on Tuesday, June 4, 2019 during lunch.
- Yearbooks will be distributed to 7th period classes on June 10, 2019. If you did not order a yearbook but would like to purchase one, your child can bring $40 cash to room 34 during that time to buy one. We cannot accept checks because those all went with the final order in April, but we will have additional yearbooks for sale.

Be The Influence
BTI provides Marin parents with tools to help delay adolescent alcohol and other drug use. Parents are empowered with facts, information and parenting tips through BTI’s website and newsletters. Parents also may gain access to a Parent Directory of participating BTI parents throughout Marin. The Parent Directory is especially useful as your child begins to socialize with students from other schools, which can begin in the summer months.
We invite all parents to visit the BTI website at www.betheinfluence.us where you will find valuable information on:
- Data on substance use in our high schools;
- State and local laws imposing civil and criminal liability on minors and adults;
- Tips on how to talk with your child about substance use;
- Tips on setting boundaries, monitoring your child and effective consequences;
- Tips on how to host parties and what to do when your child attends parties;
- Research on the effect of allowing kids to experiment at home or at teen parties;
- Blogs with facts on different drugs commonly used in Marin, and more.
