Kenroy Parent Newsletter
Thank you Kenroy Families!
Happy March and the beginning of spring. Our campus mud is beginning to dry up, the sun is warming our exterior hallways and and the new kindergarten wing and cafeteria are in their final construction stages. We are so thankful to have students on campus and the assistance you continue to give during remote instruction. Our staff is looking forward to sharing your child's progress next week during parent-teacher conferences on March 18.
As we head into our final trimester of the school year, please do not hesitate to reach out with questions or suggestions. It is through this dialogue we get better.
For the kids,
Principal- Kristy Daley- email@example.com
Assistant Principal- Erin Coyle- firstname.lastname@example.org

Updates from our Intervention Teacher, Mrs. Willms
Thank you for gifting us your child this year. Remember to join intervention if your child is assigned this support. On the intervention page, your child should be able to sign into the teacher and join the Google Meet during their assigned time. Also, if you scroll below, there are a variety of recorded lessons your child can access. If your teacher is ever absent, these lessons replace the instruction for the day. Additionally, your child can do these lessons at other times during the day if they need supplemental instruction.

Kenroy now has a traveling library! Mrs. Burns and Mrs. Graybill are visiting 1st-4th grade classes every other week with a cart of books to be checked out. Kindergarten classes are visited every Tuesday and Wednesday when Mrs. Burns reads a story and teaches our youngest students about books and the library.
