Attention Cohort A, Cohort B and Zoomies!

Last week we had two superb spirit days with stellar participation both on campus and at home. Let's keep it going this week! Thursday, December 17th, is Festive Holiday Sweater Day! Wear any festive holiday sweater to earn points for your homeroom!

Then on Friday, December 18th, we will celebrate ringing in the New Year with our winter tradition, Countdown Court!

The color scheme for this celebration has been silver and gold in the past, but in getting valuable feedback from fellow Falcons after last year’s event, we have upgraded it to anything sparkly, shiny, or filled with sequins! We will hold a virtual celebration via Zoom.

Be sure to log on at 11:40 a.m. on Friday, December 18th, whether you are home or on campus because we will be crowning our royal court live during this awesome virtual assembly by choosing names from each grade level out of a New Year's hat! All the winners will have a special prize mailed to them over the break courtesy of Fierce the Falcon!

Remember, the homeroom from each grade level with the most accumulated points will compete in a grade level head-to-head competition in May! So get that spirit on so we can kick off Winter Break in style!

Kent Library News

Got Books?!

If you have recently added some new book fair books to your shelf, it's likely you have some books to give away! If so, bring them to Kent for our book bags! We will be accepting new and gently used books for students in grades 5-8 to add to our grab bags of books. Thanks to all who have donated already. I estimate that we have given away over 500 books already! Wow!

Curbside Pick Up!!

If your child would like to check out a book from the Kent library, they may do so by emailing me at I will pull the book, if it's available, and it will be on the cart by the gate with your child's name on it for one week. Returns can go on the same cart. Thanks!

All School Read Ahead!

In January, right after winter break, we will begin reading our all school read book for 2021, This Promise of Change: One Girl's Story in the Fight for School Equity. You may purchase this title through the Book Passage or the store of your choosing or check it out of the Kent library or your local public library. Students will be reading the book with their homeroom classes and are not required to have a book in hand, as we will be providing opportunities for listening to the book and in-class discussion. I do recommend you purchase a copy, as it's an incredible true story for the whole family. You can find more information here. On January 25th, we will welcome the authors Jo Ann Allen Boyce and Debbie Levy for a virtual visit!

Book of the Day Welcomes Submissions for Squawk Talk

Does your child have a book they just read that they can't wait to tell others about? Have them create their own Book of the Day segment for our daily Kent podcast, Squawk Talk! They can use this script to create their content and then record using a phone or an online tool like Vocaroo. Segments should be around one minute and can be emailed to me at What are you reading?
