March 4, 2015


Good morning and welcome to a Wonderful Wear-your-words Wednesday at Kent City Elementary!  Today is March 4, 2015. Here are today’s announcements:


Today’s weather forecast calls for Partly Cloudy skies with a high temperature of 20 degrees.  The temperature and the wind chill are above zero this morning so we will be having outdoor recess. We will be keeping an eye on the wind chill for this afternoon as it will be dropping throughout the day today. 


The following activities will meet right after the bell today….

Camp Blodgett will meet Mrs. Morehouse in the cafeteria


Bible Release time for 4th and 5th grade is today during your lunch time in the before and after school care room.


March is reading month at KCE! We are working towards a reading goal of 120,000 minutes for the month of March.  Starting reading now to earn minutes for your team and for the school wide goal!  We are going to have lots of fun activities going on at school this month so be listening to the announcements closely for those events! Please remember to turn in your reading slips to your teachers so we can add up the minutes.  We will be making an announcement on Friday to let you know how many minutes each team has read and how many we have for our whole school goal.  Tomorrow we will be having a mystery reader at KCE!


This week we will be having a Boxtops competition at KCE.  We will be collecting Boxtops, Campbell’s soup labels, Spartan labels and Coke tops.  The class that has the most brought in will win a special prize! So please start collecting your Labels and remember to bring them to school all this week to give your class a chance to win the special prize!  


The March Character Trait will be Courteous or showing courtesy.  Practicing good manners-greeting someone with a smile and a wave, looking someone in the eye when talking to them, saying please and thank you. We will be introducing this new character trait at the assembly on Friday morning.

Assembly times for Friday are:

Grades: 1, 2, 4 from 9:15am to 9:50am

Grades: Y5, K, 3 and 5 from 10:00 to 10:35am

These assemblies will take place in the cafeteria.


Friday will also be a SOAR day at KCE so remember to wear your SOAR shirts on Friday!  We will also be having the PTCO popcorn sale on Friday as well so please bring your money if you would like some popcorn!



Let’s stay positive and keep our focus!


God bless America and…Go Eagles!
