The Kenwood School Garden

Family Volunteers are needed to help with the Kenwood School Garden this summer. If your family would like to take a shift of watering, weeding and harvesting, please contact Kenwood parents Angie Erdrich at angie_sandeep@yahoo.com. Usually two families per week are needed to help out. Watering is welcome twice per day during the super hot weather. Donations are also needed for the garden: vegetables and herb seedling, decorative fencing, bags of organic soil or compost and items for climbing plants like shepard's poles would be great. Thank you for supporting our Kenwood Garden.

Picture Retake Day is Thursday, November 17th

School picture retake day is Thursday, November 17th. Students can have retakes done or take pictures if they were absent for the October Picture Day.
Remember to bring in your original packet of photos to turn back in.

Volunteering At Kenwood is even easier than ever!

We are so lucky to be a part of a school community where over 350 parents volunteer every year — in a school of 461 students! Participating in school events such as Family Activity Night and the Kenwood Carnival has become much easier this year, thanks to the online software program we are using called sign up genius. When you receive an e-mail about a volunteer opportunity from volunteer4kenwood@gmail.com, you will be able to click on a link to a volunteer sign-up sheet via Sign Up Genius. There you can select a volunteer committment and receive a reminder e-mail two days before the event. If you haven't seen one of these e-mails yet, please contact Lori Smith at volunteer4kenwood@gmail.com to add your e-mail to our volunteer list. As, always, thank you for everything you do for our thriving Kenwood School community!
