Representatives from many colleges will be visiting Kentlake to let students know about their programs. If you would like to hear their presentation, sign up in Student Services. Scheduled visited are listed below:
KAC PTA Clothing Bank
Kent Area Council PTA maintains the Clothing Bank at Kent Phoenix Academy. We serve all students in the Kent School District. We stock gently used clothing for students age 4-21. We also provide brand new socks and underwear to families with signed referral forms. In addition, we occasionally get generous donations from members of the community and often have school supplies, rain boots, coats etc. This year, as an example, we have a large stockpile of winter coats.
Eligibility is simple…. If you have a student or family that you think could use some extra help, we think that’s a good enough qualifier! We ask that you complete the attached registration form with the family, which identifies all the students they have in the district (ANY district employee can refer a family). Please make sure to identify any language support that might be needed on the form so that we can do our best to accommodate that need. Then simply sign the bottom and send it with them on an open night! If your family has an urgent need PLEASE email us at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can arrange to meet the family sooner.
We hold open shopping nights on two Tuesdays a month (our 2016-2017 schedule is also attached). We ask that our families not arrive before 5:00 pm, and leave as many of their children at home as possible. Our space is limited, so the fewer little people we have running around, the faster people are able to get in and out. After all, nobody likes waiting in line!
