Kenroy Family Newsletter
Thank you Kenroy Families!
As I write this newsletter, we are looking to celebrate the 100th day of school on Tuesday. One thing we know to be true...we couldn't have done these 100 days without you, our Kenroy families! We are appreciative of your time and commitment to your child's education. We continue to value our partnership with you and know we cannot do this alone.
As always, 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- firstname.lastname@example.org
Assistant Principal- Erin Coyle- email@example.com
February's Character Trait is Kindness
Please be on the look-out for Kenroy textbooks & library books
Mrs.Johnson’s 5th grade academy class designed board games based on the novel, “City of Ember,” by Jeanne duPrau.
Students explained their games and spent time playing them!
What creativity we are seeing!
We are looking for a Parent Representative for PBIS
Caught Ya' showing our Kenroy Paw Promises!
One key component of our building's positive behavior plan is clear expectations for student behavior. To do this, we have three Kenroy Paw Promises:
- Be Respectful
- Be Responsible
- Be Safe
When staff members see students following these expectations, they can give
“Caught Ya’s” to recognize the good choices. Each Friday we have a 30-second dance party and Caught Ya drawing to celebrate the positive behavior our students are showing.
Don't forget to check that your child has a mask each day.

3rd-5th Grade Girls on the Run!
We are working with CVCS Coordinator Ashley Murie, to get Kenroy's "Girls on the Run" program up and "running". Here is what we know so far:
- Spring Season begins the first week in March.
- Practices will be Mondays & Wednesdays, 3:15-4:45. This includes a short lesson geared specifically to girls in this age group, a snack and time to run together.
- Coaches- Tanja Medrano (EHS Cross-Country Coach) & Gerardo Perez-Guerrez
- Kick-Off meetings for 3-5th grade girls will be February 14 during school.
- Be looking for registration paperwork to come home with your student.
Cell Phones & Electronics at School
Cell phones are discouraged at Kenroy, but if parents believe one is necessary for communication reasons, the phone must be turned off and put away during the school day. If it is out during the school day, it will be confiscated and the parent or student will need to pick it up in the office. This includes smart watches with phone capabilities.
Students are not allowed to use or possess any other personal electronic devices at school. If brought to school, they will be confiscated until the end of the day.
If electronics become a repeated problem, further action will be taken. Please remember, students do not have lockers and the school is not responsible for lost or stolen items.
Check the Lost and Found
Krispy Kreme Pickup is Saturday morning from 10-1:00
Thanks to all of you, the Krispy Kreme fundraiser was a HUGE success! If your child sold items, pick-up is Saturday, February 12 from 10:00-1:00 in front of Kenroy. Questions? Contact the PTO email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Congratulations to Jazlyn Felix from Mrs. Ziegler’s class for being the top seller!
Be looking for Kenroy PTO's Wenatchee Wild night on March 9. More information to come.
Would your child say that reading (or being read to) is part of his or her daily routine? Research has shown this is a significant characteristic of college-bound students. Most students do not willingly choose to do this, but would rather watch TV, play video games, or entertain themselves on the Internet.
Parents can help by identifying a specific time of day—twenty minutes or more, often right before going to sleep—and help your child establish and follow the routine. For younger students, this can be a time when parents read to or with their child.
Not only will this expose them to new vocabulary, stretch their imagination, and build back-
ground knowledge for future learning, but what a fun time to spend with your child. Please do not overlook this very important investment in your child's education.
