The Food Drive supporting the Backpack Program and the Kent County Food Pantry was a huge success. Thanks to all who supported it. We successfully filled the Kubota and will celebrate our success with a Jeans Day on March 10.

Sweetheart Dance: Thank you to the 4th and 6th Grade Room Parents for a fantastic Sweetheart Dance. The girls and their "dates" all had a wonderful time.

Winter Box Tops Challenge Winners: Thank you to all of the families who participated in this challenge. The winners of the front row seats for the Talent Show are:  the family of Oliver Morris (328), the family of Peri and Tilghman Overton (302), the family of Declan and Hagen Reed (221) and the family of Taylor and Clay Hill (139). We always welcome Box Tops donations throughout the year. Just be sure to trim them, put them in a baggie and label them with your child's name and grade. Every Box Top that we turn in is worth 10 cents. Those little amounts add up to big rewards for the PTF. Be on the lookout for one more challenge before the end of the school year.

Movie Night:   This Sunday, March 5th, the PTF will be holding an "Afternoon at the Movies" fundraiser with the Westown movie theater in conjunction with the MOT Film Society. The movie is Chitty Chitty Bang Bang . Tickets are $5 each. There is an 11am and 2:15pm showing. This "truly scrumptious" event is open to the public, so tell your friends and family. You can order your tickets ahead of time at https://www.westownmovies.com/chitty-chitty-bang-bang.

PTF Meeting Time Change: The March PTF meeting has been rescheduled. It will now be held on Thursday, March 9, at 12:00pm. A light lunch will be provided. We hope you can join us. All are welcome.

As always, if you have any questions about the Kent School PTF and its programs, please don't hesitate to ask. You can reach us at ptf@kentschool.org .

In Case You Missed It. . .

Sweetheart Dance Photos are SPECTACULAR! Thank you Mrs. Hester.
