Kent Counselors Wellness Hub: Many of us in our community are navigating very challenging times right now and as the Counselors at Kent Middle School, we want you to know that we are here for you. We created this hub so you can easily access resources.

Kent Library News

After an amazing author visit with Torrey Maldonado last week, his Thursday, 5th and 6th graders will have an opportunity to meet with him! Last week he talked about many things, and 7th and 8th graders were on the edge of their seats as he talked about his writing process, his characters and his own struggle with reading. One of his most important messages was to "write what you know", and I can't wait for 5th and 6th graders to meet him! You can check out his books Tight and What Lane from the Kent Library!

Born a Crime Book Club, Thursday, October 29th at 1:45 p.m.

If you would like to borrow a copy of the book, please email Ms. Jelen at If you have already emailed me about it, your book will be ready to pick up on Monday after school on the cart outside the office.

Curbside Book Pick Up and Book Bags

Students may email Ms. Jelen the titles of books that they would like to read, and the book will left on a cart in front of the gate for them to pick up.

Thanks to the donations of many Falcons and their families, we have book bags for every grade level to pick up and enjoy! You will find these bags in boxes marked by grade level in front of the Kent office. Feel free to read, keep or pass on your books OR donate them right back to the book drive for another life!

Got Books?? If you are cleaning out your bookshelves, bring them to Kent for our Book Drive! We have lots of wonderful grade level bags just waiting for you to exchange your old books for! You can drop them off by the mural near the parking lot!

Happy reading,

Rebecca Jelen
