This is to let you know that I have re-opened the search for an Assistant Head of School for the K-8 Program. I am confident that a longer search will provide us with an exceptional candidate who will begin in July 2017. The Middle School Science position has also been advertised. It is my goal to fill both positions before we leave for spring break. We are also seeking a boys lacrosse coach. If you know of any qualified candidates please share the position descriptions which can be found HERE.

In addition, please join me in welcoming Melanie Torzolini as our new Kindergarten intern. Melanie is a senior majoring in Elementary Education at Washington College. She will be with us on Mondays and Wednesdays from now until May. We are delighted to have her on board!


Reminder: All Financial Assistance Applications must be complete and submitted no later than February 15.  Please visit  http://sss.nais.org/ to begin or complete your PFS.

In Case You Missed it

Our "Word of the Week" is HAPPY, courtesy of Kindergarten. We asked for their suggestions and they proposed the word they think of when they think about coming to Kent School. 

Who were the special visitors to Kent School today? Well, llamas of course . .in the gym! Thanks to Mrs. Hottel for arranging a visit with Loco LLamas group from the QA County 4 H Club. They made us all very HAPPY!
