Summer school is right around the corner. If you believe that you need credit recovery to graduate on time with your class, come to the graduation center to pick up a summer school contract. This contract will need to be completed by you and your parents. Students must return the contract to the grad center before May 20th. Be sure to review your student records in Skyward for final semester grades both this year and previous years. Classes with failing grades need to be retaken. Students with questions can contact your counselor. Counselors will review contracts when returned to confirm class(s) needed. Students who have submitted summer school contracts will be notified by Jun 10th of their assigned session. For further details, pick up the Summer School contract.
Congratulations to David Bilyeu for helping bridge the gap between school and business.
Kent School District’s annual student visual literacy arts festival, VisFest, is May 26, 2016.
Thank you for your interest in volunteering in the Kent School District. Volunteers make a difference and their support and contributions are greatly valued. Volunteers in Public Schools (VIPS) support and enrich the lives of students and staff, provide help for individual students, and enhance aspects of the education process.
For the safety of students, staff and volunteers, all volunteers are required to complete a volunteer screening process which includes scheduling an appointment with the school office or department to a complete background check. During this appointment, you must complete a Disclosure Form, have your fingerprints taken, and have a Washington Access To Criminal History (WATCH) report run. Please note that a valid Washington State driver's license, Washington State photo ID, or passport is required for identification.
Volunteers shall have their background check completed and approved prior to having access to students, including field trip volunteers responsible for students other than their own child on a field trip. This process can take four to eight weeks, especially during "peak" seasons such as the beginning of school.
If you have questions, email Faith Sisley or call 253-373-7467.
