Books To Go!

If you need a new book just email me, Mrs. Jelen at If you have books at your house you need to return, you can bring them to the same cart where you pick up books – right outside the Kent gate when it's not raining and right in front of the library when it is.

Book Donations needed!

Our grade level book bags have been a huge success... so much so that we are in desperate need of more donations! If you have any new or gently used books to donate, you can drop them off anytime during school hours outside the Kent gate or in front of the library. If your child needs new books to read, have them come and grab a bag from the grade level boxes right in front of the Kent gate. Books can be kept, passed on or returned. Thank you for helping us keep our students reading throughout this crazy time!

Attention 8th Grade Families Attending Redwood High School Next Year

Are you interested in getting involved at Redwood High School next year? The Redwood High School PTSA is looking to recruit for the role of Parliamentarian. The Parliamentarian sits on the Executive Committee and attends those meetings. The role of Parliamentarian includes: assisting in setting the calendar for meetings, orienting the Executive Committee members to the By-laws, ensuring that meetings follow the Robert's Rules of Order, and kicking off the Nominating Committee to recruit the next year's board. A big perk of being on the PTSA Executive Committee is that Principal David Sondheim attends the meetings and you get to hear about what is going on at the school! Please contact Mandy Downing at if interested!
